internal control lock


internal control lock
A device used to lock the flight controls inside the cockpit or fuselage of an aircraft so that they cannot be damaged in high winds. These locks keep the stick and rudders locked and thus prevent the movements of control surfaces. Internal control locks are normally used on aircraft with manual controls. See also control lock.
