I've used these a few times, no problems.

Comments about Reliance Better Water Heater Element:

No, I have never had any problem getting one to thread in. A tip is to use a wire brush on the tank's threads and rinse it to remove debris. The old one may come out and go right back in because the rust transfers from one to the other. A new one might be difficult to get past the build-up. I've used these in customers' heaters for years with no callbacks or complaints from customers, or from me either.
Have the right tools. If not, borrow them.
Have the right knowledge. If not, ASK.

Not threaded well

Comments about Reliance Better Water Heater Element:

Bought two for a Reliance 606 (2003) model, neither would thread into the water heater. Old elements easily screw back in. No Hot Water Tonight or worse tomorrow morning!
