Has anyone used trick Davits?

As I was looking for a new davit, i came across trickdavit.Com. Does anyone have long term experience? My dink, engine and fuel weigh in at about 300 pounds.

Not familiar with them and so I'd lean toward one of the excellent brands I am more familiar with. I don't like their not mentioning capacity, but sure it would handle yours. However, my wife and I both had one thought in watching the video as he pulled the boat up and then released it. That thought was how easily he could have fallen in. Holding weight while on the edge of a platform and leaning over the water just scares me a bit.
