About a year ago, I purchased two Ultimate Guitar stands. Last week I was moving the stand with my $1700 Rickenbacker 4003 in it. After moving the stand, the legs collapsed. Luckily my hand was near the headstock and I prevented the bass from hitting the ground. I thought the lock mechanism may not have been engaged. Today, I was placing my Modulus Q5 in the other stand when the legs collapsed. Once again I was able to save the bass from hitting the ground.

This time I knew the lock was set properly. I reset the legs, reengaged the lock and put slight downward pressure on the stand. The lock mechanism automatically turned to unlock and the legs collapsed.

I've sent an email to Ultimate Support to see what they say about the catastrophic failure. Has anyone else had these issues with these stands??

Is this an incredibly smart spam bot?
