Plastics weak and does not fit Trek skewer

PostedOctober 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality
This arrivedtoday. It looks sturdy enough but
* the tightening grip (turn handle) was broken on arrival and when I used it (not noticing it was broken) it worked loose. It is just flimsy plastic. I noticed the metal bar underneath had grooves in and fitted a 15mm pedal spanner. so I taped one up and it works fine - much better than the original.
* I put my wife's specialized on the stand and it worked fine - even able to take my weight. However when I tried to put my Trek on the fitting for the skewer was not big enough and I couldn't get it to work. Eventually I got a chissel out to widen the indent and it appears to work fine.
I only went through this hassle because it's just what I wanted and sending it back wouldn't have helped - a new one would have had the same 2 design faults - so I decided to fix them.
Recommended only if you have normal/small skewers (not a Trek) and can live with fixing it when the plastic turn handle breaks (which it probably will).
