cant say ALL accessories from China are garbage.
there are pure rubbish and there are really good stuffs.
sometimes it is luck, sometimes it is chance,
paying more not necessarily get you good stuffs.
paying less not necessarily means that item wont last.
it is always a gamble buying stuffs from China sellers.
if you got something good yeah all is fine and rosy
if you got something bad oh hell these are POS.
i had some pretty worthy good buy, i also had some bad purchases, but still it doesnt deter me from buying again in future. just buy from a different seller. look at their ratings. that should be of some help, paying couple more dollars buying from a highly rated seller is a safer bet than buying from a hardly rated seller with low transaction volume to save a couple bucks. well unless you dont mind risking it if that few dollars means nothing to you. you might get some hard-to-beat bargain.
that being said, buying from china - DO NOT expect ANY after-sales service. if you need the whole package of after-sales support - buy local, buy from a local seller whom you can reach and get support from. that's the reason you are paying more compared to Chinese stuffs.
if you can fabricate/make/weld something yourself, have the tools and time for it - there is an immense feeling of satisfaction in making something yourself - and save yourself the agony of dealing with a thrid party.
