parking brake issue

Recommended Posts

Twice yesterday while landing on grass shortly after touchdown the parking brake came on spontaneously. I recognized it and turned it off. First time I thought I must have hit it with my hand. Second time I am sure I did not. 

Any thoughts? Maybe I didnt have it firmly in the off position?

I've done that, very embarrassing. I found the brake was half on at landing. I don't know how it got on, I must have brushed it somehow. Now it is on my landing checklist.

Mine takes a little effort to rotate it but if I had a long sleeve and the cuff caught on it, this might turn it.  Or maybe a watch band, or bracelet, etc.?

Some CTs are real easy to bump and you won't even notice. The valve only needs to be turned a little.
