Attached an accessory, used it once. Removed the accessory. The chuck will no longer close at all.

Not for heavy drilling
I used this on a 3/8 shank holesaw and
DeWalt 887 & Milwaukee Gen 3 impact drivers to drill 1.25" holes through 2.5 inches of wood. The DeWalt became too hot to handle after about 10 holes, so I switched to the Milwaukee, and snapped both the holesaw and the chuck after 11 more holes.
The product worked as advertised, and I found it highly useful, but it isn't durable, by any means.

Purchased the keyless bit because the piece I purchased to sharpen lawn mower wouldn't fit my ryobi impact drill. Went to tool rental area, to fit a recommendation for universal bit attachment and the Gentlemen printed me up one that wasn't in stock, I ran into the last keyless bit in the tools section. And was definitely compatible.

I bought this to use in my drill press since the chuck on it would not go small enough for the drill bit I needed to use. The wobble was so bad it wasn't usable. Not sure if it's the drill press or the chuck, because if there's a small wobble on the drill press chuck it would be amplified on this chuck because of the added length. My press might have a very slight wobble, but if so it doesn't affect the drilling I've done in the past. The chuck is intended to be used in an impact drill and it might be fine in that application where precision isn't as important. I have a cordless drill already so I don't need to convert my impact into one.

I used this to connect a power drill to the manual crank mechanism on a sit-stand desk. It works well. It's definitely a solid item and it feels well-machined. It's probably overkill for what I need- It feels like something a contractor would use, and I probably could have gotten away with using a cheaper plastic one. But I'm definitely not worried about it breaking or giving out on me.
There's actually a hole for a chuck key, but there's no gear mechanism. I don't know if adding that gear would be prohibitively more expensive but it would be nice if you could use a key if you wanted. But that's not a flaw- it's advertised as a keyless chuck and works well as such.

I'm a sheet metal worker. i use these with my impact so i don't have to carry a drill and impact all day. i used mine about a week. like others have complained, the adapter unscrewed from the chuck when i tried to remove a bit. due to some internal ratcheting mechanism it's nearly impossible to remove the bit by gripping the chuck with two sets of pliers.
i can't belive they don't use a reverse thread screw to keep the adapter from backing out.
i exchanged it, hopefully I'll have better luck with the new one.
i had one made by jacobs that lasted about 15 years. so far i haven't found a suitable replacement. i tried two from the "green" home improvement store, $5.99 and $14.99 and both of those broke the very first hole i drilled.

Stuck open after third use
Not only did this chuck not hold drill bits tight enough to actually drill holes, it froze in the open position and is now useless. I own and use several corded, cordless, and pneumatic Makita tools and I've always been very satisfied. Not this time.
