That handbrake type thing you have on your PA28.
3.8 Flapless and glide approaches must be requested and are subject to ATC approval.

Base leg and final I just couldn't get the speed down, picture looked wrong too. Then saw I'd not put any flap in.

E.g. in this case 20., If you give up trying to get it to work and leave it anywhere else, it might suddenly start working again if problem is merely a loose connection, not a good thing on short final. Known it twice.
