I bought this because it was one of the stronger ones available at a decent price (not $80 dollars as were many others). It's pretty universal and gets the job done. My application required me to hit it with a hack saw to 'trim' some parts... my beater SE Draft while having all the holes drilled for a rack does not fit a rack well, haha.The screws, bolts, and nuts though... GARBAGE. As the other reviewer mentioned you can EASILY strip the heads off the screws which will then require vice grips and patience to get them off.I bought new stainless steel bolts and such at the hardware store and applied some loctite as well.If you're NOT willing to spend another 5 dollars and time at a hardware store then don't get this rack, it's bad. If you can overlook that and will factor the hardware store into it all, then it's just fine, lol.It get's a 'meh', it works.

    This says the hardware is stainless steel but as far as I can tell it's made of tin. I have already stripped the screws using only my hands and the little allen wrench that comes with the kit. I had a long tedious job getting the unit off the bike using a vise grip as a wrench. I'm taking the unit back to the store...not sure what I want them to do about it. I've already wasted a lot of time. This is a little feature but it's a deal-breaker. I won't buy anything made by this company again.
