Park has an enviable reputation for bringing industrial-quality workshop gear into your garage. The PCS-11 is certainly sturdy if not as slick as some. For a start it clatters out of the box in bolt-together bits, and even when folded it’s still a big bundle unless you take the head off.
The wide-splayed, high-set twin legs are very stablr, but there’s a trip risk. The simple, fixed, lower jaw clamp is slightly slow to use, but secure enough once you’ve got it shut. It rotates 360° for holding seatposts/tubes up to 80mm across, making it pretty much universal.
Park has a huge range of add-on accessories, as well as a heavier steel-legged tripod (£114.95) and table-style and bench-top mounted clamp designs (£99.95), so if this isn’t quite what you want they probably have a version that is.
