Installed Sliding Canopy Taxi Latch

Latch in the Open Position. Turn the knob 90 degrees, slide it back to any predetermined hole, and it springs into the locked position. This will be especially useful when I want to taxi solo with the canopy half way opened. -No more reaching way back to find the canopy before takeoff... Latch in the Locked Position. This mechanism is available from Rod Bower Aviation.

Here is a demo of the latch after the installation.
