Gladiator Claw version 1.0: $10 Craigslist

I just scored this Bike Claw, Version 1.0 for $10 on Craiglist. Picked it up on my way home after work. I had to jump on this - I saw one sold on eBay for $$.  No way!

Version 1.0 is made of nicely machined aluminum. Version 2.0 and 3.0 are plastic. Version 3.0 hooks  onto Gladiator track.

Many people think this item is over-engineered and would rather prefer a hook on the ceiling. I think it looks cool and is a rare find because it is discontinued by Gladiator.

Here it is in the closed position:

Here it is in the open position:

Here's someone's video of the Claw:

I cant wait till I hang my vintage BMX Bike on the ceiling. Maybe I'll get lucky and find another one...

Gladiator Claw Version 1.0:
Retail price: $30+
Craigslist price: $10.
