Manual Tiller Lock ?

I had an idea for a manual tiller lock for my transom mounted rudder...It would have a release on the tiller handle so you could move it, but then you could engage the lock and the tiller wouldn't move...is this a dumb idea and do they already have these??? Any advice is welcome.
