I dunno about the Antenna Mart gin is sturdy, and heavy, and that
ain't a bad thing...but the way the thing grabs the rungs of the tower (as
opposed to the leg) always leaves me wishing for something better than it! 

Also, if you try and use it on your junior towers of Rohn 25G getting the
horizontal pieces which lock onto the rungs is a real pain since they just
barely fit into the tower without hitting the diagonal cross brace - if you
are in an awkward position you always end up putting it somewhere where you
don't want it so you can re-belt and then try and position it where you
want it on the second go.

Gawd that thing is heavy - you need a hand from the ground to boost it or
you end up one peterd out towerite quick!
