I really dont see it as being harder or longer than doing the spacer thing. but hey, everyone sees things differently so if it works for you then its just as good as anything else others do.
I've crashed mine dozens of times and have not had to replace anything yet. I even slammed it into a tree when a wind gust caught it, knocked the front canopy off and still have the original grommets. Besides, the grommets are only $1.99 for a set of 8 at the LHS. Using the CFTB O-rings only used up about 10% of the engagement and still provided the spacing needed. Very simple fix.
