Bad quality – Umbrella Holder for Bicycle/Motorcycle Reviews

posted by wt808 on 11/30/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
None
Cons:
The item that I received is not as pictured. The plastic part under the umbrella handle clamp was cracked. Bad design puts a lot of stress on plastic parts. All metal tubing and fasteners are steel and not stainless steel.
Other:
This item was very poorly designed and assembled. The ends of the metal tubes appear to have been hand cut with nippers (very jagged) and were inserted 5mm into the plastic end caps and secured with a single screw. The head uses a 40mm pin glued to the plastic end cap. If you use this to clamp an umbrella to your bike, you will surely have an accident, or your umbrella will fly off and maybe cause someone else to have an accident.
Bottomline:
This is the worst product I ever bought from DX, and it is somewhat expensive given the poor quality. I was going to use it to clamp an umbrella over a baby carriage, but it is going into the trash can instead.
