This device seems to be similar to the "Extend-A-Dot" bug slower. To increase the period of oscillation of a bug pendulum, either more weight can be added to the pendulum, or weight can be moved farther away from the pivot point, or both. This device accomplishes that, so it should work well. The only slight negative is that any device that attaches to the pendulum rod with a "set screw" has the possibility of marring the pendulum rod. Note: Most Vibroplex weight screws have a nylon tip or a rounded tip.
