I have a kaoko as well (came with the bike when I bought it). Works fine. Takes a second to get used to using your pinky to engage/disengage it, but it works fine. I've only really tried it a few times.
If you haven't used one before, I strongly recommend you consider a throttle rocker or crampbuster as well. I find for long rides, just being able to keep my hand flat and not have to curl around a throttle is usually more than enough and I have yet to really use or crave the need for a throttle lock with a cramp buster that I can just lazily rest my palm on to maintain speed. Takes a little work to put it in a spot where it won't be in the way, and at an angle that gives you a good cruise speed, but once it's set it worked great for me. (FWIW, I had the velcro one that didn't rotate, so I had to set it well and then tighten it so it was at that angle all the time)
