Quality is clearly something that Mottez have yet to get a handle on, but there’s no denying this thing works pretty well and offers great value for money.

Straight out of the box you’re confronted with some rather poor instructions and a bag of bolts. Once you get the thing together you’re left with something a little on the wobbly side, but any tighter on the bolts and it simply won’t operate properly.

However, clip it over a tow ball and press down on the locking lever between the two arms and the thing locks into place in a very solid manner, albeit with the arms at slightly different angles. It doesn’t feel as though it should be this stable, but it easily took the weight of two adventurous adults who decided that swinging on it might test its strength.

If you’re looking for something cheap and simple, yet strong and functional and don’t mind a few rough edges to the design and naff instructions, then you could do much worse than this little gem.
