Review by:
This deserves its own review because it comes on many Celestron scopes, some replace it and some live with it with or without a bad word or two. It uses two screws and does not have a compression band. It is adequate for the stock diagonal and many EPs, but add a Barlow, heavy EP or a camera and you discover the limits. I bought and latter sold a Click-Lock and the attached C-11. The Click-Lock is very strong but the threads were not quite right for my C-11, but it was strong.

So what to do for my remaining SCTs? Instead of a new VB I drilled and tapped (with just a self tapping screw) for a nylon screw equidistant from the factory screws. Three screws makes it a useful VB, otherwise buy something with a compression band. (Posted on 10/23/2019)
