they depend ALOT how how the user tie down the bike and where the tie down points are located on the floor. you could end up with alot of pressure on the grips. I have one but I no longer use it.

I use short straps around the forks (b/t upper & lower clamps) and hook that onto my tiedown points.

Used and loved them on sport bikes. Gets the tie downs away from the fairing. No need on dirt bikes as the handlebars or fork triple clamp is easily accessible...

most people tie don bikes overly tightly. When using these type of tie downs you may end up bending the clip ons or handle bars. Seen it happen dozens of times.

Loop straps over the upper triple tree are best.
