The adapter works really well to allow slant tubing bikes to hang straight on a bike rack. It's well padded on the ends to protect the bike. The only complaint I have is that the buttons that open and close the ends are difficult to depress fully. You need a screwdriver, key or other device to hold down the button flush to the surface. Have a little tool available and that should take care of the buttons.

Unt works fine and is well built. Push button lock release was very stiff at first but with use becomes easy to use. Cost is substanitally less than adapters from other manufacturers.
