Lens reversing ring question

Are the 3rd party reversing rings ok? I took the advise of the forum and bought an Original M42 to K mount adapter, but since the object of reversing will be for macro, would their be any issues, mount removal, etc?

JC - I got russian-made LOMO M-42-to-K-mount adapter (with locking spring) and MATIN reverse 52/55mm adapter and in terms on putting them on and off I got no problems on my cameras (MX/ME/KX/K2).
The truth is that they might have much more simple mounts compared to new Pentax DSLR'a and they don't cost that much, so risk is less considered.
Keep askin' ;-)

I purchased a basic metal reversing ring off of eBay and have had no problems with the likes of 50mm manual primes. The quality of the aluminium, or whatever metal it is made of, has been sufficient. The body bayonet is a good fit, and while I ensure that the filter thread portion is snug into the lens, I avoid over-tightening. I cannot speak to the strength of the metal to hang a heavier lens off the body.
