This product worked well for about a year. After this this plastic gears in the all plastic head broke and released my bike while driving. Luckily it fell toward the roof of my car rather than the windows and ground. ps the head was not overtightened at the time of breakage.

The 517 seems decent, but it does not hold onto the fork dropouts very well. I am a reasonably strong man and even when I tighten it as much as possible and still be able to open it, the fork dropouts can slip in the quick-release. I have even had the bike come out of them and fall over sideways on the roof of the car. I am currently looking to replace it because it does not hold bikes securely enough.

Works great!
