Can Anyone Identify My Tiller Lock?

I'm new to the SailNet community, but a friend recommended it to me and suggested that I have a good chance at getting my question answered here. I've sailed Seneca Lake (about 3,000 acres) in east-central Ohio since 1996. For the last 12 years I've been sailing a Gloucester 20. All that time I've used a simple tiller lock which clips down over a 1/8" line to hold the tiller in place for short periods of time. I don't remember where I ordered it from or exactly what it was called . . . but it broke on me as I was removing my tiller at the end of the season and I can't seem to find anything like it. I've seen the "tiller tamers" in the catalogs, but I'd really like to get another tiller lock just like this one. Can anyone tell me what to call this or who I can order it from? I'm going to post a picture or two of it if possible. I'd be grateful for any information you can give me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks to fstbttms and sailingdog. The Tillerman rudder lock is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks also for the link. I've already got it ordered. My friend was right - this is the place to get sailing questions answered. Thanks again.
