I solved the same problem differently. Two cleats in the carling under the afterdeck, one on either side. 3/8 inch bungee cord between them. A jam cleat (like a regular cleat but one side tapered) on the underside of the tiller, tapered side forward. Pull the bungee into the jam cleat and it locks. You can set the tension foe the wind. I might add a jam cleat on the carling to adjust the tension as well. I have found that using the bungee helps keep a boat on track in variable winds because it self corrects.
Have you posted the pics of your dance yet?
