|ASA's new yoke clip holds all the necessary flight paperwork right where pilots need it, leaving their hands free to fly. Simple to install, the black plastic, I-Beam construction is strong enough to serve as a pilot's third hand. The clip is higher than other yoke clips, holding sectionals, approach plates, flight logs, checklists, flight computers, and pens in easy view. The unique, over-centering cam easily adjusts to fit all general aviation aircraft yokes without modification.|
You get what you pay for. For $13 can you really expect superb quality? This clip is cheaply made (entirely plastic - except the spring, and the elastic band). The spring is extremely weak. It takes very little turbulence, bumping around, or pulling on paperwork, for it to come right out of the clip. In other words, it doesnt hold anything in the clip with a great deal of strength. As if that wasnt annoying enough, the rubber band-style mounting to the yoke doesnt secure very well, and will cause the clip to rotate around the shaft of the yoke. In short, I do not recommend this product. Its cheaply made, and goes to show that manufacturers need to get over their love-affair with plastic in their manufacturer and go back to real materials and make quality products.
