Need to buy one. This one has pretty decent reviews and is very inexpensive.

ANyone use this one?

Craftsman red here. Works as advertised.

Haven't seen or heard any horror stories about the HF version, though.

I use it. It serves the purpose. However, you have to ensure it's positioned perfectly under the bike or one end will come up before the other. Once it's centered perfectly, the bike is still not very stable, it will teeter totter if your messing with the front or rear. I've not had one fall off of it yet but that rocking sure makes me nervous.

I have one I have had for 10 years still works good but getting tired. I have a 12'x24' garage so I have had to lift the bike everyday to get it turned around to ride. Now I have a Triglide so don't use it much but it works.

I have that one. It does the job and I've had no problems with it.

I have one. It's a lot more stable once you get the bike up and put the safety down and release the pressure off the jack. I wouldn't use one for every day use but it's fine for me at home.
