Just had my hobie dealer install these...shouldn't the hole for the bungee cord be on the actual tiller arm, not the cross bar?

Yes, mine are on the tiller arm but i see a benefit to yours. The bungees tension will keep the threaded adjustment that you've set stationary for when you re-assemble not to mention sliding your tiller extension/hotstick under the bungee to keep your rudders locked up whilst backing your boat on the trailer down a ramp. My hobie 20's crossbar adjuster is no where near where i left it by the time i trailer my boat to a regatta or even to the house an hour away from the lake.

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure that it's ok to sail, every picture that I could find of the H20 connectors installed looks like this: Image
