Default Re: Locking Clutch Handle

I did a tutorial on this problem a long time ago. I lost all of my photos on an old computer that died but essentially here's what to do.

Drill a 1/16" hole through the button where the original snap ring was and use a 1/16" X 1/2" cotter pin in place of the snap ring. I use a washer and a rubber 'O' ring under the cotter pin. The 'O' ring reduces the shock to the parts when you release the lock and it eliminates that metallic 'click' too.

It can be a challenge to drill a hole in the button because it's only about 3/32" in diameter but it can be done.

Good luck.
