Looks like it works fine, but I would use a solid piece of round stock instead of the pipe.

But I guess that is why my wife & kids call me "Over-kill Ken".

Overkill or not, I do have to agree with you.

I agree on the round stock too. I would add a spacer tube in between the arms to keep them from sliding back & forth. Great idea, thanks for sharing.

I would add a stronger bar too. I like how  simple it is.
