My EZ Lock Rubbers don't lock in the up position. They stay up for a while but slide back down with any movement of the boat. Sometimes they slide down without any movement of the boat. The rudder heads appear to have quite a bit of flex in them, but I don't know what normal is as I am new to the Wave world. I see on the parts list there is a part EZ LOC PLUNGER 20492021. By the name and the location it looks a new plunger may be a fix for my problem? Has anyone needed to replace a plunger? My Wave is a 2007.

If the rudders are left halfway down... the rudder tips on the shoreline. The housings are flexed open and distort enough to reduce the uphold position. You can tension the pivot screw to add friction, but the key is using the provided pins on the lanyards to hold the rudders up. This pin passes through the housing and rudder blade.
