Default Flap actuator anti rotation

Here is a thing I made to prevent the electric flap actuator from rotating and potentially unscrewing the rod end bearing at the top. It's a little beefier than just safety wire.




Cheers!

Very nice, I have been thinking of building some thing like this only not as beefy but this looks great.

Do you have any photos of this piece before it was installed? I'm having a bit of difficulty picturing how this works.
