This is alright, it’s just not as sturdy as you would like however for the price, it’s fine
using it for my mouse
This is a decent mouse/joystick platform, but it doesn't quite live up to its description.The lower nut, which is supposed to lock the platform rotation, doesn't actually do so. There is no actual locking mechanism, just friction along a small plastic contact surface between the platform collar and the mount, and there was no amount of tightening the nut that would keep the platform from rotating under even a light force. The collar does have soft "stops" (softly clicks into place) as you rotate it, which is nice, but helps only slightly. A rubber gasket or something for extra friction would greatly improve this.The clamp has padding underneath which at least prevents scratches, but on my (inexpensive) desk did not stop the clamp from slipping. Hand-tightening the clamp nut was insufficient - the padding just doesn't provide much friction. At least the clamp and screw are metal, so it's nice and rigid and seems durable. Again, if this padding were a little more rubberized, it would help.Overall, this mount is useful enough, but I think I may have to apply my own less slippery pad to at least the clamp to make the performance more acceptable.
I bought this to use with my flight sim as support of my trackball mouse, the fixation system is so poor, the material is more or less weak, but works for the moment, I don't know how many time it will survive.
Had one of these from another manufacturer but needed one with a better design. This one fits the bill. Swings out of the way when I do not need the mouse. Only caviat: don't lean on the platform too heavily. It may break.
