OK, but you'd be far better off spending £10 more on one of these:

Same as the X-Tools/Bike Hand/etc. ones sold elsewhere.
Much more stable and adjustable than the ebay/Lidl one.

Having used both, I'm not sure I agree. Both have their faults imo, but I prefer the lidl one myself

used my new stand tonight to do a few bits on my frame. So far so good. Yes it does pivot in places when pushed hard but that was good for me this evening and gave me movement where needed. If I need it to be firmer then there are lots of bolts that I can tighten to get this result. Still very happy with the purchase especially as I would not have bought a stand if it had cost me £100 plus as I could buy another bike for that.

I use the 30 quid lidl effort and its not bad :? The clamp isnt the best and could do with something a bit more grippy but as thats an easy fix it isnt a problem.Takes up a lot of room ith its 4 legs but again can be worked around and it does its job for holding the wheels off the ground as you fettle the drivetrain etc.
All in all for £30 its a bloody bargain.

Just have to keep watching their little adverts for when its available then you make sure youre first in the queue.
