I had "an el Cheapo version of the Stanley" ($9.99 @ BassPro Shops); cracked the case on the sucker the first time I used it. Hence the Stanley.

BTW, there's another (slightly better?) version of the Stanley that has a wall bracket for mounting/storing the unit when not in use. Wish I had seen it before I bought this one. Mine just rattles around at the bottom of the hanging locker most of the time.
