Hook with new prototype "thunb"
Here you see the hook with a "thumb" we constructed. This now allows a secure, eyes-off resting position on the throttle with both pull and push control. The thumb is made up of some shaped aluminum that is inserted into a tool holder slot between the two hook prongs, and some temperature malleable plastic was used to form around the aluminum for a better grip.
