I have sold a few and have seen a few come back for warranty repairs, even in the last year or so. The biggest issue seems to be the magnet at the heart of the activation system getting stuck, keeping the unit in locked mode.

Air activated lockers, whether ARB or ZIP, are much stronger and more reliable IMO, assuming you take care with your air line plumbing.

Thanks for the input on that! I'm curious about the ZIP since it's kinda new. Can you PM me a price on one?
