Where it breaks is the pivot pin for the spring loaded handle. The "plastic" material is relatively thin there for the the amount of stress from the spring. I "think" as the "plastic" material starts breaking down it gets sticky and then softer allowing the stress break. I had used two guitars at church I had to readjust during setup this one when I brought it home. During setup I adjusted the height, set the guitar on it and the guitar dropped to the floor. The handle was broken. Funny, I saw one at a local music store that was a display unit (owners there are???) that had the same Quick handle on it and it was broken the same way. I have guitar stand another GS414b in storage (bought same time), but having it shipped here is probably more than it is now worth as they were both about the same age (I found the receipt, bought 8 years ago from Amazon).
Personally, I don't know about purchasing another. I found a similar head and layout for a cheaper one that I leave at church. It's now about a year old, we will see. I would probably buy another of it's brand unless Hercules has fixed their manufacturing materials or process. I do like the handle, while it works. I have that same handle on two mic stands, I will check them out to see how they are fairing (one is over 6 years, the other less than a year old). Only safe way to put guitar on a working one of these is to add a Safety stop pin like Speaker stands. I think then it would be safe to use with your guitar if the handle fails (always unexpectedly).
Seriously, if you need a guitar stand, stop playing around and just buy this one.
Note: the model I received did not have a “rubbery” finish on the comfort grip (if that’s what it’s called. The handle/grip is of a hard plastic with a metal adjustment lever, not plastic like in all of the one star reviews. Perhaps Hercules has fixed the problem?
About 4 years ago I bought (2) Hercules Guitar Stands.
It's too bad really, I like the locking top, BUT
As of about 2 years ago all of the plastic and rubber parts have become very sticky.
I have been coating them in talcum powder but it is annoying and not a permanent fix..
Now however, the part that holds the upper riser in place has exploded on both of them.
Smashed the bottom of a guitar on one that failed during use.
Very poor quality materials
Note that Classical guitars will NOT fit into this stand. I tried, and my Classical guitar's neck was just too wide for the neck yoke. However, all my 6 and 7-string guitars (acoustic and electric) did fit nicely. My 5-string bass also fit.
Use / Operation: To use the guitar stand, the feet must be extended and the neck must be pulled up/out to an appropriate height. When your guitar head / neck is placed in the stand, the weight of your guitar (the head is held by the padded "U") causes 2 small arms to swing up and secure your guitar from falling out due to accidental bumps. The body of your guitar rests on the lower 2 legs (which are very nicely padded).
Build: This guitar stand is substantial. Both short-necked and long-necked guitars will fit. This safely holds my long-necked bass with room to spare. The black metal frame is wide and sturdy. The legs are thick and have rubber feet to protect the floor as well as prevent slipping. The two front legs, on which your guitars rest, are covered in foam. The rear leg is shorter and creates a tripod leaning backward to appropriately balance your guitar.
Transport: This is not a small stand. Compared to other stands, this is beefy and secure. I don't worry about small bumps knocking over my guitar at all. But the flip-side of this beefiness is a stand that is not compact or super lightweight. If you have a big rig, this will fit in as just another solid piece of quality equipment. If you are looking for an extremely portable stand, you may wish to consider one of Hercules Travlite series (such as the Hercules GS302B Travlite Compact Electric Guitar Stand).
