All anti reversal latches should be constructed like this one.
I've never had an Anti reversal latch break on me but I have had them frustrate the living crap out of me. This latch is great if your tweaking your gearbox needing to constantly open and close it. The notch for a flat head screw driver allows you to release any spring tension before you open your gearbox and the c-clip helps keep the latch's spring in line. As wonderful as all this is, it is completely superfluous.
Unless you broke your previous latch, are building a gearbox from the shell up, or are constantly needing to get in your gearbox, this is hardly an upgrade over a stock latch.
Bottom line, it does its job and has some nifty features that make it easier on a tech. At the same price as other latches its an easy choice to replace a broken latch but it is by no means an upgrade to a stock latch.
