How do I protect my new bike stand?

I just bought a new bike stand (Park Tools PCS-10). I really like it, but I am worried about how it will stand up to the winter (rain, no snow or ice). I simply do not have the space to store it inside without taking it apart. Should I put a cover on it, and if so do I need to protect more than the clamp head...what should I use?

it's a PCS 10 it folds, undo 2 quick release levers fold it up and stick it in the closet.

Or I suppose you could get an extra large garbage bag and put over it.

If you absolutely CAN'T take it inside (mine folds to about the size of a small golf bag and fits in a hall closet or under the bed, but I don't know your situation), you can cover the working parts with a plastic garbage bag, maybe after spraying them with WD40 or something similar.
I'm not sure what your objection is to "taking it apart," though. It's made to fold up and store in an apartment or wherever. Run through the process a few times and make sure you're doing it right. Mine goes up and down in a few seconds, less time than it takes me to find my tools.

If you don't want to store it in the garage, fold it up, and store it in the closet or under your bed.
