I read the review on here & opted for an upgrade. Upon walking in, this was the only option at my local WM. Remembering the other review, I tinkered before purchasing. Mine worked just fine; mine's still in 1 piece. The thin handle isn't the nicest option for handling/grasping, but without a doubt did it's job correctly. I needed a leveler quick; for $3 I wouldn't have been distraught even if it was a 1x use... not the case though!
