Doesn't work for me!
Quoted from the product instructions: "For some materials you may need a one time quick assist to slide the material into the gripping lips". Translated into useful language that means : the thing requires two hands to open fully (at least mine does). It bends ( a lot ) and only partially opens with one hand (this isn't a hand strength issue - it's a product strength issue) , so you need another pair of hands in order to get anything over about 18" into it without an amazing song and dance. Since anything below 18" can generally be applied solo, I can't really see the use in it's current state. Once material is loaded, it would hypothetically help install large transfers solo while your friend who helped you load it checks their phone.... I'm going to attempt to reinforce it using two aluminum dowels in the handle curves. I shouldn't be having to pay for that. If it doesn't work easily, I'm returning mine as it's defective by it's own admission. To the manufacturer: If it's body were simply aluminum it would work. At it's price it should be. I've given it 2 stars because the product is clearly marked as not working as advertised - even though it's not in the description. Also, the material used for the "lips" seems perfect so well done there. Also - it's clearly a good concept. Last note: Assuming I can get it working, there really should be a hole in it so it can hang (like a ruler, level or anything long and annoying to store) right now it has to just lay on a shelf. Easy drill fix - but another fix. I'd recommend making one yourself with a couple of clamps - this product won't save you time or money in it's current state (that I can see anyway). I'd welcome input or correction if I've missed something. Hope this helped. :)
