I bought this as a gift for a handyman friend. He has had his eye on a tool like this for a while. I love the fact that it comes in a carrying case to protect it. It slides easily and locks in to place with a twist of the washers. I do wish it was made a little more sturdily, as this one is a flimsy plastic. I will see how well it holds up once he puts it to good use. Overall it is a great concept.
