Fork Preload adjusters

I was tooling around on ebay and saw these things called preload adjusters. they look cool, but im wondering if they would be worth buying or not and what they actually do. They are only like $30 but still.

Re: Fork Preload adjusters

they let you adjust preload without tools, normally you need a wrench to do so.

They just drop over the preload adjusters so you can turn them by hand.
You don't need to adjust preload once you have it setup though so they're a waste of effort.
