    So has anyone used one of these before?
    I've seen a few photos of these online- It doesn't look like there's a stepped thread for a lockring.
    I feel like this is not exactly for street use but moreso for chain alignment of a non/track hub or for racing on indoor track.

    You are correct, sir. HED sells a similar one. It's intended solely to give you proper chainline on a non-redishable (read: disk) rear for track use (at least in the events that don't require back-pedaling). If it had a step-down thread for a lockring, you would just unthread the adaptor.

    the way he advertises them makes them really unsafe for someone wanting to do a street conversion....

    i used one on my first conversion. locktite on the hub/adaptor threads, then grease on the cog/adaptor, then a BB lockring. its basically a suicide hub for someone who's too lazy or doesn't want to bother redishing. i wouldn't recommend it, but it worked. fyi, i rode with a brake and learned to do skids on it with no problems. that wheelset is no longer in use, but i still can't get that cog off to save my life; with chainwhip or via the rotafixa method!
