JT Strongarms

Just installed JT Strongarms on our 2015 Columbus 320RS. What a difference, they work great. We are very happy with the purchase and they were easy to install. My question for those who have them is, do you remove the T-handles when traveling or tighten them down once the landing gear is up.
Thanks,

I made my own and made L handles so they wouldn't turn while traveling. A T handle will turn, so IF it were me, I would cut one side off or just use the T and tighten them. Only problem is always remembering to tighten them. With my CRS, can't rely on memory anymore.

Never tighten them when up and traveling. Haven't lost one yet.

Walley World has 8" Velcro straps with a hole in one end. We put the threaded end of the T thru the hole and wrap the Velcro strap around the arm and T to hold it from turning during travel.

My T handles were exposed to a Canadian winter and have enough corrosion now they don't move.

I'm not sure if they are exactly the same, but I installed the Steadyfast stabilizers on my TT just last weekend and the instructions said to tighten the T handles during travel.
