I have used a couple of the ones you suggest. I finally figured what you did. They are junk. At least the ones I got.
I finally went and bought one from Mother Honda. No problem since.

thanks for the feedback guys. as a die-hard skinflint i often need to be steered away from bad purchases.
as painful as honda prices are, it beats tossing $7.00 away for a piece of junk.
