Nice to see the refinements that have been developed since my 1995 601 kit.  I think I need that tool!  How much?

What is the recommended method of holding down the tail on Zenair Aircraft?  On my 601HDS I eventually added a more robust tailskid-tiedown assembly which works now without distorting the fuselage.  In the absence of any hardened jacking points near the front this was my solution. But what is the "official" Zenith recommendation?  Thanks.
