Had mine for about 4 months now.. works great. It was alittle trial and error on the install. Make sure the angle of the pads are pretty close to flush when you load the boat on the install and have some slack on the bolt so the boat will adjust it flush when it latches. Once latched snug up the bolt. Getting the right depth of the trailer is important as well. Dunk the trailer bunks then pull up. You won't have to power load as hard as the clamp is 3-4 inches closer to bow eye. The latch itself is pretty heavy..appears to be well made.
