Topeak Modula water-bottle cage

I was looking for an extra water cage and here is what I found: Topeak Modula cage.

The cage is adjustable to different bottle sizes.

Campmor has it for under $7.

What do you think?

Most of the water-bottle cages are made from aluminium. This one is made from aluminum and Engineering Grade Plastic. Does the plastic make it less durable?

I guess that could come in handy. I have a stuff-carrier bottle-like thing for carrying keys etc. that is supposed to fit in a water bottle cage, but it won't quite go into my Specialized WB cages. Something like this would work for that.

I have that one, needed it for the insulated camerbak bottels as they are bigger around than some others.

Easy installation?? Enough clearance to use any folding hex set, like the Park Tool AWS-10 ??

Shoot! Installed the Topeak Modula bottle cage, but then realized that I got faulty item!! I'll have to return it to Campmor and see if they have one that is not "rattling" like the one I bought:

It was a bit tricky to install it with the PARK TOOL AWS-10 hex set though.

There is nothing wrong with that, it has play in it, both ours do. you turn it down to where its tight on the water bottle and the spring tension keeps it from moving.
