I purchased a Hercules 5 Guitar rack. I have 9 Guitars. So I also purchased two rack expanders. The product is great. I actually like the design of the expanders over the original neck holders on the rack. They have a locking nut and bolt that tends to tighten around the bar better. They install easily and hold your guitars firmly. No rotation, no slippage. I used a 5 inch spacing between holders and also between the rubber holders on the bottom rails. The rack now holds seven guitars. 5 Strats with trem bars installed and 2 Les Pauls. The expansion units was a great feature for the rack. It also can be used as replacement parts if you ever need one.

Just bought the stand and was very pleased with roominess, so I ordered the adapter for an additional guitar. The bottom bumpers were not as wide or substantial as the original bumpers; I expected more from Hercules. They work, but just aren't up to par. And they weren't inexpensive!

Comments about Hercules Stands HA205 Guitar Expander for GS523 and GS525:

No idea why they don't just sell the stands to hold as many as they can without having to buy these. Oh wait....$$$$ The neck support part is held together by screws, originals slip on. The round foam ring has a retaining ring to hold it in place and is cut to slide over. Now if they sold exactly what was on the original stand you would have to disassemble the product to install. I would have been okay with doing that so it looks the same. Still they get the job done and that's all that matters.

          This allows you to add extra solid body guitars to make it a 4 stand rack.

            Comments about Hercules Stands HA205 Guitar Expander for GS523 and GS525:

            The ability to tighten these up is definitely an advantage over the one's that come with the stand. Hercules should include a picture with installation instructions for those of us who are mechanically challenged. Otherwise, definitely a 5-star rating.

                These are better and tighter than the ones on the original Hercules stand. The screw is great to tighten them the original ones don't have the screw. Why is that.
