I was really excited to get this, but as soon as I got it I realized that it had a couple of big flaws. First, it's not very long, so I had a difficult time keeping my tie and shirt tucked into it. Second, while the low angle inverted spring that they advertise works well initially, but the metal can bend apart, and after that, it doesn't hold on as tightly and can easily fall off. There is no good way to bend it back. This is important because third, since there is no spring mechanism to open it when putting it on. This means that to get it on over two tie layers and a shirt layer you have to either hold it open (therefore bending it apart) or jam it until you get lucky and it finally slides on (how I spent 5 minutes getting it on the first time). If this was $5 I wouldn't really care, but for the price, this item should be much better.
