Best "Tilt" solution for FT-817  Time owned: more than 12 months
Of all of the gadgets on the market to change the viewing angle of the face of the FT-817, I believe the Peg Leg is the best. It is an eloquent, affordable and simple solution. Best of all it is most compact for portable operation. Being attached to the radio eliminates another piece of gear to carry around. An added benefit is that the company, Palm Radio, provides great customer support.

A great and simple accessory  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Purchased locally and installed just this evening. All parts were present; easy-to-follow pictorial instructions. They fit the rig perfectly and really increase the usability of the '817. The hardest part was getting Yaesu's factory screws out, but that's another story! ;-) Would definitely recommend to all '817 users.

Great idea for the 817ND  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
As any 817 owner will concede, you need to be able to elevate the rig at times. So I ordered the Peg Legs and installed them in no time flat. Really helps. Don't leave home without it.

Awesome design  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Great little invention. Very well thought out. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective.

I highly recommend.

A must for every FT-817 user  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
It is simple, very useful and company's reply was quick. If you have FT-817(ND) than you need this gem. You can't go wrong.

Elegance in simplicity  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Of all the radios that don't come with a flip-down bail, the 817 SHOULD HAVE! $19.95, no shipping charge, came in an envelope from Morse Express in few days.

5 min. understanding the parts (and sizes of the washers involved), 5 minutes assembling. Works completely as advertised, no drama. Whether in a go-bag on your shoulder tucked out of the way, or on a picnic table at field day, should just be part of the 817.

Inventor should take a page from Bill Gates' playbook (DOS) and let Yaesu give him some money per unit & Yaesu should put it on every 817 that goes out the door.

Worth the money  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The subject line says it all. These legs work very well and then fold up completely out of the way when you transport the radio. This is an ingenious solution to a very irritating problem with an otherwise perfect radio. This is money well spent.

Fantastico!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
A 'Must Have' for any FT817/ND.
As was mentioned on a prior post,install any internal accessories prior to fitting the Peg Legs
Ensure you clearly identify and match the parts with the supplied instruction/pictorial before assembly and you should have no problem insalling this product.
