It was nice and firm in 25 mph winds last weekend when I flew to another airport for the afternoon. Had someone hold the rudder while I attached the handle it was so windy.

the rudder lock is similar to the one I saw on Van's 14, only made from the
C01442B canopy frame alignment tool instead of wood

The aileron/elevator lock is modified from the Husky lock at aircraft spruce which proved to be too flimsy and kept popping off so is now strengthened and fastened under the panel with camloks
