Big help to my knees
I bought this item because I have had trouble with a baker's cyst in my left knee all my life and the strain on my knee from twisting to hold the leather out was adding to my discomfort. This item works perfectly as promised, just make sure you put it on with the extra metal facing forward or it will rub your ankle. It does add a few inches to the length of your stirrup so you will need to shorten them a notch or 2. They completely remove the pressure on my knee though and now I feel much better!
