Default Canopy lock

Does anyone have a picture of what the canopy lock looks like on the new 912is RV12 ? Wondering if I wait for that to be available, or is it already ?

Julian,

Try a desk drawer lock like the one I use. Youíve seen it. Itís kept out every honest person that got near my plane in the last 5 years!😜

The new RV-12iS doesn't have a canopy lock.
It does have a new design canopy latch.

The November '17 issue of KITPLANES has a nice set of pictures of the new RV-12iS including two pictures of the new-style canopy latch.
