Good for money, but...  Time owned: more than 12 months
I got the MK-36 to go with my dual paddle. Whiterook certainly has some efficient designs which they can make for a low price. In theory, it is a great idea. However, my experience with this leg strap is not that great. Basically, it is uncomfortable to wear on your leg. If you have it loose enough for good circulation, the key moves all over the place. If I tighten it enough to keep the key still, my leg falls asleep because of lack of blood flow. The Whiterook keys are so light they certainly need a base, but I would think that attaching it to the rig with velcro or a magnet would be a better solution.

Way Too Cool ! ! !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
OK, it's not a key but a necessary adjunct. There is probably no other accessory in ham radiodom that is so effective, so satisfying, yet so inexpensive. This thing works great! At $7.50, it is impossible, simply impossible to regret the purchase. There's a lot of strap there too. Apparently, most hams have really super fat legs as big as sequoias but it's easy to trim it down. Another ingenious creation from the Whiterook braintrust.
