Pros: Rigid and will not collapse easily
Recommended? YesI easily pulled mind off the piece of 1" long 1/2" ID threaded stock. switched it out for a 2" long piece and shoved 1-1/2" in and no worries now.

Pros: Awesome cheap alternative to false bottom
Recommended? YesThis is a great alternative to false bottom. My local beer store (homebrew heaven) sells the weld less ball lock and installs it for free for under $30.
Pros: - Very durable - Can be used for lautering or as a filter on the inside of your kettle ball valve to keep break material out of your fermenting chamber
Cons: - Clogged very easily by pellet hop crap
Recommended? YesI really like this sucker -- I use one for my batch sparging process and another as a filter on the inside of my kettle's ball valve.
My only caution is not to rely on this thing to be a cure-all problem to keeping pellet hop crap out of your fermenter. It will be clogged super easy if you haven't gotten all of the hop material to drop to the bottom of the kettle. Granted, this can somewhat be solved by scraping a sterilized spoon across it while the ball valve is open -- it's just a pain in the ass.
Recommended? Yesi absolutely love the simplicity. It screws right into the threaded bulkhead i mounted on my keggle. Hasnt fallen apart yet but it slowly is becoming lose...only complaint.
