    I made a locking "cover" for the tee handle to slow someone down from releasing the clutch, spooling out the rope, and cutting it off. They will now have to at least take the brake apart to freewheel it.

    That's cool, but another key to carry. Do you live in a high crime area?

    Not really but sometimes the Willys is left for several days at the end of a 4x4 trail while backpacking. I never much worried about a steel cable wandering off but a good rope is a little bit more of an investment.
