I'm an intermediate guitar player, I use capos very ocasionally. This one is the best out of 3 that I own. Very easy to use, although it might be tough for someone with dexterity issues to open it fully, hence the 4 stars. Other than that- a must have! Also, I am very pleased with the way it came shipped to me. A nice to the eye package, that will put a smile on one's face.
