MAK Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog Afterburner Detent

Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog comes with factory afterburner detent. By default it is mounted in a non-active position, but it is very easy to turn it by 180 degrees and enjoy afterburner detent. However factory detent is sometimes difficult to operate, as both thrust levers needs to be moved up slightly to get over the detent. This is particularly difficult if your HOTAS throttle is not fixed to its stand / desk. In that case it happens very often that a whole HOTAS throttle box is jumping up when moving throttles over the factory detent.

It would be much simpler to just push throttle levers over the afterburner detent (without rising them up) and this is exactly what my custom afterburner detent is doing – no need to rise the levers up while getting over the detent.
