A Little Too Much Powder Coat
Product works great. Really solid construction and quality overall; however, the entire lower clamp assembly was powder coated as one piece with the hardware in place probably so as not to powder coat the threads. I wouldn't call it a huge drawback, but it was difficult to get an allen wrench in the powder-coated bolts and then loosen them because they were baked to the clamp. Loosening the bolts chipped off most of the finish on the bottom clamp anyway, and I ended up replacing the bolts with hardware that was easier to tighten.
It clamps to the bottom of a motorcycle so the finish is going to get messed up anyway, but when I buy a new product, I don't and shouldn't have to replace any of its components straight out of the box. Hopefully Monster Craftsmen finds a better way to powder coat the clamps.
