GB Everyday two hour cyclist
Good materials. Lightweight. Positive up/down motion.
Drawback 1: The winged plate that holds the bolt is too narrow, which causes the plate to loose grip, making the plate easily slip out of alignment.

Drawback 2: The head of the bolt is a recessed hexagonal, whose interior is very difficult to access. It did not seem to be an exact match for the 7.0 hex key, nor a 7.5 - again, making the device prone to failure. Perhaps a long arm style of hex key might improve access and stability.

Drawback 3: I used the prop stand intensively for 10 days, delivering approx 60 newspapers daily, and every day I had to re-tighten the awkward bolt, sometimes twice. This was dangerous because the prop stand would get loose and swing very close to the rear spokes.

It's possible that there was not enough metal to metal contact to guarantee that the stand would stay firmly secure. I found a lot of gouge marks where the prop stand had been. My hunch is that the butterfly (washer?) did not have enough area in contact.
My bike is a fairly modern (4 yrs) Ridgeback Velocity.

I have now fitted a Bigfoot adjustable alloy kickstand, and placed two strips of silicone (cut from a charity wristband/ bracelet) and then fastened it all very hard down. The Bigfoot works perfectly now, but I know it will need replacing in 6 months time.
