Why would you not? That's the issue. Your issue. I am? How are my comment's not in relation to this topic? As for me buying one of your Chinese cheapies to test it - that's a comical concept! Such "decent one's" look like this yet aren't cheap copies?
Why would I need to show it to u? U are pretty much going on a different sphere with some of your comments that doesn't correlate to this product. Find one of these 'knock off' buy it and then make your judgement. Looks nothing unique in design to me, pretty much most decent ones are designed like this, it's not a complicated design and material cost. Anyway I signing out of this conversation, it's fruitless when someone insist this item is multiple times better than something I got when they don't have it to compare it to.
So no then? You're just going to trot out the same things in each reply without actually showing the specific one you have, when though you said you can get them for £8 now? This is a unique design that's well manufactured. Without showing us otherwise, what you're describing is a cheap Chinese copy. You're happy to take a significant risk to save a few quid. That's your call. But don't compare that to this one. That's pretty much it in a nutshell.
I can only go by my experience of the item I got. It's pretty much design and work like this one. U will know if the product is about to fail as the mechanism - slider silver metal bit will not hold or the 2 screws does not tighten the attachment. Cheap doesn't mean crap for all products, expensive products doesn't always justified it's price tag. There are lot of expensive items that fully justified the price tag. This is maybe not one of them.
I don't have to walk out into traffic to have an idea that being hit by a bus will tickle more than a little. And as most of us can attest, cheap copies can do a reasonable job up to a point. They're not designed or manufactured to the same standards as the items that they mimik. Are you au fait with the term, "put up or shut up"? If you're not going to show us the item that you're claiming isn't a cheap copy, then how will we ever know that it's not? As as the OP has also commented on this comment of yours, I don't think you would be "hijacking" their thread.
