The only issue I found was that the base tended to slide around pretty easily when you'd want it to stay put. I easily remedied that with some 1/8 inch x 1-1/4 inch dense foam tape. I cut a piece for each side of the base, stuck it on, and wrapped it under. The foam contacts the work surface and it stays put.
It only moves when I pick it up and move it. I also bent out each side of the base about 1/4 inch to give it a bigger footprint, it won't tip over. I didn't knock off any stars for doing these mods. There easy fixes anyone can do. A great buy at $6.00 and great quality. I'd buy it again if needed.
It is indeed basic. Which is a plus in my view. Parts are well made, the black framing is some sort of metal, NOT plastic, which was a pleasant surprise. There is a "groove" to hold the wire spiral from slipping around the bold+nut thats holding it down.
The spiral has a "mouth" with an inner spiral that holds iron snuggly yet "insert" is simple and smooth.
I saw people refer to the sponge being "flimsy". It simply needs to be hydrated, its that kind of a sponge. Its not lush or anything but perfectly adequate.
Bottom line, to my own surprise, its a keeper.
My Weller SP40NKUS soldering iron just barely hangs in there. To the point where a tiny tug on the cord or bumping of the unit puts the iron at risk of falling out. The big goofy LED housing on my iron prevents the iron from sliding all the way down the coil. Because of this, the metal before the tip also just rests on the black plastic. I was concerned about this at first but whatever that plastic is made out of, it could withstand a fully heated iron resting on it for an hour+ with no visible deformation. Bottom line, it works, but unless you have a very thin soldering iron I would consider getting something else.

The product is excellent for holding your solder iron. There are air holes used as vents and the spring and platform are very stable and solid. The sponge you put in the water and it will expand to almost fit in the area for it .... for cleaning off your solder pencil.
