These are lightweight, require little or no maintenance and are easy to install - just push the spikes in the ground. I have had no problems with them blowing over, even in strong winds (I have not tried them in pots though - they may be more prone to blowing over if standing in a pot of multipurpose compost rather than plunged into more compacted garden soil). They are easy to move around, so if you don't like where you put it, its easy to move to another part of the garden. I have three of these in the garden and have used them for growing sweet peas. This year I am trying to train honeysuckle up them.
The only down side I can think of is that the metal is not very thick, so if you were trying to push the spikes into stony or hard, dry ground they might easily be bent. I don't expect they will last forever, but with a little care I don't see why they wouldn't last 10 years or more. A great value product.
