Burton Tuning Vises - black
I was a little worried that they may be cheap and flimsy since they are made from plastic but the plastic keeps the weight down and I was actually able to use these on my foldable plastic table. I expected to have to use them on a fixed benchtop.
They are very solid and the board slides into the slots with ease. The suction cups work amazingly. The vices are tall enough so that your bindings do not have to be removed. The bottle opener is a very nice (and classy) touch. :-)
I highly recommend these to anyone that takes pride in tuning and waxing their board themselves (like me). They are a perfectly flexible and simple solution. Couple them with a Dakine tuning kit and a cheap iron and you have a tuning/waxing station for under $100. Wax your board 4-5 times and the station has paid for itself. All the while you're shredding on a board YOU tuned. Job done.
