If you're buying new, there's only one mfg. The price difference is in the supplier you purchase through.

Agree. Check them all plus the manufacturer in California.

I'm very biased on this subject. I prefer the genuine item made in the '20s, mainly because of the simplicity and the ease of operation. There are no holes to drill or special tools to install them, and they work backing up too. There are no rods, just a simple pulley/equalizer for braking with a cable.
