As always, no surprises.
Everything as expected. I always buy with confidence.

Carboy handle
I use it for the 2.5 Pyrex carboys...does what its made for, and I trust it here since it carries little weight. Perfect to keep me from slipping when washing and shattering them, Would not use on larger carboy as id be afraid of putting too much pressure on neck.

Much better than a bung.
PROS: Put a 3/8" stainless racking cane through the center hole and it's easy to start a siphon when racking. More secure and versatile than a drilled bung plug. CONS:This one (red) does not seem to fit my 6.5 gal carboy as tightly as the orange version fits on my 6 gal carboy, but not a big issue so far. The biggest con is that the white caps are super easy to lose and I don't think you can order replacements.

Very secure, if installed in the proper location
I'm not sure how everyone else is attaching this handle, but you need to take the handle apart, and stretch the ring around the neck under the large part of the carboy neck (not above). After attaching the oval part of the handle again, tighten the wing nut fairly tight. The handle works perfectly, and is very secure. Carried a full carboy with this handle alone (no support underneath) for at least 30 feet. Used it to pick the carboy up and into my fermeezer. I'm getting one for each of my carboys and just leaving it attached. It's MUCH easier to deal with than carboy carrying straps.

does what it needs to
Useful for tipping, but not entirely necessary. Fits just fine for my 6.5 carboy, nice and tight. Just use common sense with it - support the bottom of the carboy and, as Brian said, don't carry it with just the handle.

A bit flimsy
This cap is not a rugged as I expected. It is made of thin and very pliable rubber. Other caps I've bought in the past were more hefty. My stainless racking tube causes this cap to pop off. I have to use a tie rap to keep it in place.

Not that great
Doesn't fit near as well as the 5/6 gallon handles fit on the carboys that they are made for. This has a loose feel and can't really be tightened down so it doesn't flop around on the neck or the carboy.
