This is a great item. Works exactly as described and quite simple to figure out with just a bit of common sense. I was able to look at drawing on accompanying insert to assemble correctly. No tool needed to tighten, I just turned it with my hand. I am so glad I found this handy device. All metal and wooden design for durability to stand the test of time. I thought about sanding grooves in wood to allow paint waistband to stay firmly and prevent slipping but it walks as is so undecided on that. Overall I am very happy with this. I think you will be too..
