It looks stable. I'll see what happens when we get strong winds, as it is very exposed.
I bought two, when repairing two corner connectors, and was so impressed with the increased stability that I added two more. Hopefully I won't have to replace the 3-way connectors again, but next winter will be the big test. Cannot therefore score for product performance. Lessons learnt (1) put the fixing screws for the tube connectors in place before sliding the connectors onto the tubes; (2) use a larger screwdriver for the bolts.
I purchased these kits for my Harrod vegetable cages on my allotment which is situated on the south coast and prone at times to strong southerly winds. Since the purchase they have had a far test and proven very successful. I will be buying these again in the future for my other Harrod cages on my allotment
