Unhappy WHEEL BRAKE or LOCK without LASHING

How do I make a wheel brake or lock? Lashing is not appropriate due to the helm design on my old catamaran.

Trying to make a wheel lock to stop rudder whiplash when going astern. Not enough room between the wheel and bulkhead to install a wheel autopilot, which in any case are not best used as brakes.

I don't think simple lashing will work for my small traditional design spoked wooden wheel. Any ideas much appreciated - no free hand due to distance between twin engine controls each side of the wheel!

Your inputs much appreciated ... thanks!
