I received this as a present for my 45th birthday last year. I personally requested it, and am glad I did so. I use this endpin anchor virtually every time I practice or play my cello. I mainly use it when the floor is not carpeted. My capped endpin fits easily in the holder. Adjusting the endpin clamp to achieve a comfortable playing position is a must. However, the d-ring does not fit around the bottom of all chairs. Chairs with thick wooden or metal legs are unsuitable to use with this. Storing this in my cello case is a breeze. The endpin holder, strap and d-ring can be rolled together and stored in a cello accessory compartment.
