I'm new to drums (played bass for years), been playing a while for our churches kid's department. Of course they get the hand-me-down drums that are falling apart. i got tired of re-threading the nut on the hi-hat half way through playing so I replaced it with this. Affordable, does it's job, no slip. Works well!

The only negative I would say is if you are new to drums and have never set one of these up, there are no directions with it...but then again, it's not rocket surgery.

I would not trust this product for performance use. to be fair I think Gibraltar makes good quality hardware for the money, racks, stands, but this product did not even hold up in the home studio.
I was initially pleased with this drop clutch since it looked to be better quality than the older style Gibraltar drop clutch that it replaced. after maybe 30 hours of playing the set screw that goes under the top cymbal stripped out. I took the screw out and found the bottom cymbal nut casting had cracked because it is made of cheap pot metal. Thus, I have broken two Gibraltar drop clutches. To be fair, I play hard. I will try a DW clutch.
appears to be high quality but appearance is only surface deep, it's made of cheap cast pot metal
it was fairly inexpensive so not a total loss but one would not think of a hihat clutch as a disposable item

      I would have given this 5 stars, but unfortunately I cannot use it. My hi hats are 60s vintage A Zildjian, the the hole diameter is too small for this drop clutch. Funny that the DW clutch I have fits just fine.

      It is quite similar to the DW I use on my show set. Don't hesitate to buy this because it did not work for me. It

      This simple yet effective accessory works well. It releases cleanly and picks up the top hat quickly. Very easy to install.

                        We bought one of these several years ago. It took a short time to tweak it so that it picked-up cleanly. It's worked flawlessly for heavy-metal drumming since then. We only bought this again because the top half was left behind when we packed up after a gig. The new top half went onto the clutch with no tweaking necessary.
