Customer Reviews

The ring that goes around the chair leg is metal and the overall construction is solid.

I can see some concern about sufficient length if you prefer playing with your endpin extended far out ahead of you, but this will probably suit most people.
Lissavia
I've been playing the cello for something close to a decade now, and the Xeros endpin anchor has always been my favorite way to secure my endpin.

I was a little hesitant to buy this as someone wrote a review that it was only long enough for children. But since I'm teaching my two little girls, I figured if it is too short for me they could use it. It's exactly what I had expected - the D-ring is plastic, the adjustable strap is about the construction of a luggage strap, and the metal plate has rubber on the bottom so it doesn't scratch your floors. (I read some reviews that some cellists just dig holes in the floor wherever they play whether they own the floor or not. In my opinion, this is tacky at best, vandalism at worst.) Anyway, I am 5'8" and I made sure the endpin was at the proper height (making the scroll around nose height when standing) and the cello was the proper distance (about arms length when sitting at edge of chair). I had PLENTY of length on the strap. I have no idea why the other person had such a short strap, but mine is fine. My playing has even improved because my cello stays put... what a novel idea ;)

Wow, this was a very disappointing purchase that is going back.

If you are considering this endpin anchor, I would strongly suggest that before ordering it you measure from the back of the front chair leg that you intend to use to the pointy end of the endpin when it is extended to the position you prefer and are holding the cello in the playing position you prefer, and are sitting on the front edge of the chair (assuming that's where you sit when you play.) I extended the strap as far as it will go, and at 32", it is not far enough for me. I am a 5'7" woman and I hold my cello so that the peg for the C string is approximately level with my earlobe, or maybe the middle of my ear. This anchor is a couple of inches too short for me.

I wondered how I could be the only person out of 5 reviews (4 others as of this writing) to have this problem, so I looked closely at the other reviewers' other reviews. One reviewer states that the anchor was for a child; another reviewer also ordered a bow holder for a child; another reviewer at least has a child based on other purchases (whether the child is the cellist I don't know, but at least it's possible) and the first reviewer, no clue as to whether the anchor was for an adult or a child. My point is, I think most if not all of the existing 4 reviews are for the anchor as used by a child, not an adult.

Again, fully extended, it is 32 inches from the back of the front chair leg to the end of the extended endpin when the cello is positioned as played. And also realize that when you play you are probably sitting on or toward the front edge of the chair, not toward the back like you're eating dinner.

This version of the Xeros End Pin Anchor is well made and is adjustable from 18.5 to 32 inches from the back of the "D" ring to the center of the pin socket. The pin anchor is made of rigid plastic with a non-slip rubber backing and the "D" ring is also made of plastic. The "D" ring is 2-1/4 inches in inside diameter, so is large enough to fit almost any chair leg or piano bench. The nylon web strap is very strong, does not stretch, and the device is very light weight.

I own an older version of this anchor I've used for years and wanted an extra one. My "old" one is made with an "indestructible" steel "D" ring and the anchor block is made of cast aluminum. The old one weighs a few grams more but is MUCH stronger. The new one is probably strong enough for most users, but I could imagine the plastic ring breaking if abused. The old "all-metal" one could be used as an automobile tow strap if you ever wanted to do that.

This product used to be cast metal with a well-designed ring at the end of the belt. It was a mainstay for many cellists during practice and performance. In this new version, the piece that receives the endpin is plastic and the ring is oversized and needs special attention to be aligned in the proper direction. Playing the cello is difficult enough without having to fuss with the endpin anchor. Bring back the original.

This is the same product that the local music store was selling for $25 and would have had to order.

Great product, but I need another 6 to 12 inches. I wound up adding a second strap and now have a V shape so the endpin can't move around at all. The strap I added is longer so I can extend it when needed.

if you don't want holes in the floor and want to play without slipping your cello, there is no better option. Great shipping and service with Amazon.

I bought this as a replacement as my daughter started playing the cello recently and took my Xeros endpin anchor. I was SHOCKED and ELATED to discover that the end that goes on the chair leg now has a clip opening!! This enabled me to use it on a tube chair which doesn't have traditional legs. And wouldn't you know it, my orchestra's venue has tube chairs. Every other cellist in my section was envious of my redesigned Xeros anchor. If you have the older model, I highly recommend you upgrade to the new one. It is WELL WORTH IT!! And the company really should update the picture on Amazon (it doesn't show this vast improvement).
