Strengths:    Easy installation.
Easy operation (when it works).


Weaknesses:    Reliability
Can damage fork drop out if unit remains locked and you pull the fork out.


Bottom Line:   
They worked fine at first and were easy to install on my Whispbars. One year later, I'm ready to toss them in the garbage. The locking mechanism does not release evenly, one fork drop remains in the closed position while the other is fully opened. This happened to both of my Echelon trays. Now I have to warranty replace these. I should have kept my old Peloton and V2, which were problem free.
