I removed our plastic vista "cruise controls" and installed the Kuryakyn throttle lock #6285 on my VN750 and the wifes EN500 with matching bar end weights.
I used a step drill to ream the grips ends out a little.
After several trips and time to get use to it, I have to say I really like it.
You can roll it on or off with the throttle and it holds well.

How easily do these things release the throttle when you need them to?

I've had 2 of those Throttlemeisters. Best money (and a lot of it) can buy. I put one on my former EX500, so I could rest my arms a bit. Also installed 1 1/2" bar risers and foam grips. Still wasn't enough. Bars just way too low.

Have to pass myself, any sort of cruise control on a bike tends to make me nervous and since I rarely ride over 300 miles a day (less than 6 times a year) I've found the Kuryakan throttle boss from a yard sale is plenty to keep my hand comfortable.

I had a ThrottleMeister on my old ZR-7S and on my Z1000 now. It's not as easy to manipulate, and I would be worry in an emergency situation. They both came with the bikes though, I rarely use them, even for long trips.

The Crampbuster though, those are life savers. For $5... Why not try it? You'll love it.

Love my Crampbuster.
Amazon have a few different styles you can choose from, also chrome if you want:

If you have Prime, it's free shipping. Otherwise, you have to buy at least $25 for free shipping. Pick up a battery tender for like $21 as well.
I got a Crampbuster off of eBay...shipped for 10 bucks. I love it!
And of coarse anyone who knows me would know I went and got a chrome one.

They are easy to over power when needed. Under normal use you roll it on and off with the throttle. It is a friction fit and requires the handle bar end to be drilled out a little.
I also like the cramp busters or the Kuryakyn throttle boss.

I don't use throttle locks for long periods of time, just to stretch my hand or scratch an itch :)
