Exclamation Happy Trails Centerstand -- the one you already have

While on my recent 5 day trip, one of the springs on my HT stand broke at the top. I bungeed the stand up for safety for the rest of the trip. When I got home I called HT and inquired for new springs. Apparently there was and issue with the original springs. No fuss they mailed me out a new set of redesigned springs. The new ones have a stamped metal bit at the top to reduce stress. You can see it in Zener's post here --

Tech tip -- The bottom part of the spring is a whole lot easier to put on using a pair of squeeze to open snap ring pliers. Take it from the guy that struggled with the first one before the light went on.
