Other than needing significant hand strength to screw in and unscrew the brackets, this is an excellent system. I suppose one wouldn't want a bracket the can easily become unscrewed, but it isn't always convenient to have to go get a tool to do this when you are parked at a kayak put in place.
I would buy this item again, no doubt about that.
Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: hard to screw in bracket tight enough by hand.
