    Just saw that they made these available on their site today:

    May be a little simpler than the locknob design, but its definately cheaper, $5 for one, and $20 for 20! That's a pretty good deal if you ask me.

    Just bought some, maybe an impulse buy but we'll see how they go.

    I've been fixing knobs from turning with a dab of silicone sealer in the meantime.

    Yes, GE Household Silicon Glue is what I use. Stops knob movement enough, yet it allows you to make adjustments on the fly. And if you take it off, it just peels off while also cleans off the area while leaving no sticky residue.

    What about the oversized rubber washer trick? Not impervious quite like the link posted above, but still, works great and makes the pedals feel "nicer" since it's way hard to turn the knobs. :)

    Cool idea, thanks for the post!

    Your kidding right.......that has to be a joke. Just put a rubber washer under the knob and be done with it.

    Pretty smart move. They probably had a local machine shop make those for pennies on the dollar in bulk and are selling them at a pretty healthy markup.

    Looks like some type of medieval torture device.
