Hello, I need more details concerning this walker. First of all, I would like to know if it is suitable for tall people (I am 6.5" tall). Also, if the brakes work only if you hold them, or you can lock them in one position in order to sit down or get up. Thanks,

I love this so much I'm ordering a spare. I can go thru most doorways and still sit comfortably on the padded seat. I had assembled in 10 minutes. Folds up to fit in my back seat of my Deville. too much stuff in my trunk right now due to christmas hiding. I can carry my water bottles in the basket under the seat. There's even a spot for my checkbook that zips and unzipps on the bottom of the seat cushion. I walk and walk till I get tired then sit. Never a need to worry about crunching a stranger sitting down at the mall or finding a chair without arms. I'm 6'4" so I was concerned about its height but the handles adjusted high enough to be comfortable. My back still hurts if i'm not using it. But using it, eliminates my back pain. As a pregnant man waiting to have a whole litter, I would recommend this to a pregnant women. with the back bar you can attach a back pack to put your purse in and put a small padlock on the zipper to keep the zipper locked on ur back pack attached to the back bar. I even put stuff on the seat to wheel around like the huge box it comes in to the curb. So much freedom while I use it to walk and get my health back. Like walking on a treadmill. Lean on the handles while u walk. I'm 427 lbs.and loosing now.Not recommended for lazy people. This tool will motivate you.Read More
I am so pleased with this rollator. The quality is excellent, the size is perfect. it is light weight yet very durable. Very little assembly was needed and no tools were required to assemble it.Read More
Well made, sturdy, and a large seat. It will stand up for years. One down fall, it is heavy to lift into the car. It is worth every penny I paid for it.Read More
Excellent product. Sturdy,easy to put together,safe to use,price was right. Drive made a sound product. I ordered larger model because I am a big person. It 's seat is wide and comfortable and would hold 500 pounds as advertised if needed. The basket is a plus! I use it for many tasks. Caution it is wide so does not fit in all doorways but with practice it can be most useful and safe.Love it!Read More
This is a very sturdy walker, nice sturdy wheels. This is my second walker and is so, so much better then my first one, I am not sure the name of my first one, but I will def. stick with a Driver Walker, fantastic price also, was cheaper then my first one I had. If you need a wheeled walker I would so recommend this one, don't waste your time looking any further.Read More
I love this walker. There is almost no assembly required: insert the handles into the walker, tighten the bolt and you're done. This is one sturdy product, well made. I am a big man and I never worry it might collapse under my weight when I need to use the seat. The seat is very comfortable. Its width means that it can't fit through my bedroom's door, but that's ionly a minor irritant. Also, the metallic red paint job is absolutely gorgeous. The wheels are large. They roll very well and can withstand my weight when I am sitting on it. The brakes work well, too.Read More
I bought this for my daughter who has health issues and needed a heavy-duty walker with a seat to accommodate her weight. I tried sitting on it and I was amazed that it is really comfortable as well as very sturdy. FYI - it is a lot bigger and heavier than a regular walker, but it has to be in order to hold up to 500 lbs. I would highly recommend this for anyone who needs this type of walker.Read More
I am 300+ and the walker handles my weight with no problems. A little hard to transport in a small car.Read More
This walker works well in places where there is plenty of room- outside and in large stores with wide aisles but can be a problem going through narrow doors and getting into places with narrow steps since the weight is about 30 pounds. The best thing is that you can sit and rest when your tired and you don't have to worry about being too heavy for the frame unless you weigh more than 500 pounds.Read More
I bought this walker for my parents to use. My dad is a big guy and he can sit on this walker comfortably and without feeling like it is going to fall apart. This walker is a great purchase.Read More

I have this walker and would very much suit a tall person. I have not discovered how to lock the brakes without holding the handles? I will be sure to go try it and get back to you on that.
What is the width of the frame when fully open please as we have a narrow section in our corridor. thanks marcia
Hi marcia512, The unit is 28 inches wide. Thank you for shopping with us.
Wondering about the seat width, listed as 18", isn't the size of an average person? not a 350 lb person.
Thank you for shopping with us hhwills. The seat dimensions are correct and this will support a large person. Have a great day.
I was a little surprised at the size of the seat but,at 190 lbs it really is not to big. roomy but not to big.
This is for a larger person, that is why it is called a "Bariatric" walker. Good luck to you on finding what you want, I am sure you can find a smaller one on here.
Does this Walker fold?
Thank you for your interest. Yes, this item folds by bringing the front wheels toward the back and lifting the seat up.
What is the weight capacity?
Thank you for your interest. The weight capacity is 500 pounds.
How to Pick a Mattress Pad for a Sleeper Sofa
Sleeper sofas have a sometimes-deserved reputation as uncomfortable places on which to spend the night. Because a sleeper sofa serves double duty as seating during the day and as a guest bed at night, buying one is worth considering if you are short on space or limited by budget constraints. Purchase a high-quality mattress pad to ensure your guests are as comfortable and well-rested as possible after a night on your sleeper sofa. Look below to learn how to pick a mattress pad for a sleeper sofa.
How to Operate a Power Drill
Power drills are used for many different tasks, from hanging pictures in your home to heavy-duty construction projects like structural framing. The level of power classifies power drills: a drill may be used for light work, medium work or heavy-duty work. A good all-around drill will have several speeds and allow you to use an array of drill bits. Like any power tool, when operating a power drill, safety should always come first.
Best Gifts for Baby Boys
Shopping for baby gifts is fun and exciting. Finding a fun, useful or educational gift for a baby boy is a great way to celebrate his birth or any occasion. By keeping the baby's age and his parents' lifestyle in mind when picking a baby gift, you can find something that will delight, impress and become a treasure. Whether you are shopping for a baby boy gift to take to a baby shower or a gift that will be perfect for his first birthday, we can help you select the best baby gift with our tips. Activity. Play mats such as gym mats and tummy time mats are great gifts for baby boys. Play mats help babies develop motor skills, strengthen their muscles and they can also entertain little one's while parents take a break. Active baby boys love kicking and playing with gym mat toys and tummy time mats will entertain any baby while he is developing strong muscle coordination. In addition to play mats, music CDs, educational DVDs and baby books are great activity-based gift options. Age-appropriate toys such as trains, cars, stuffed toys and balls never go out of fashion and give babies opportunities to develop their motor skills. A play yard also makes a great baby boy gift. Play yards offer a safe place for babies to explore their environment. Nursery. You can help dress a baby boy's nursery with decor gifts. Crib bedding, hampers, crib toys, musical mobiles, window treatments, stuffed toys, rugs and other accessories will add to a baby boy's nursery. Check with parents to find out their planned nursery theme before buying or choose neutral decor items. Large nursery items such as baby swings, rockers, bouncy seats and walkers are great gifts and will be very useful for the parents. Meal time. Babies need so many accessories to get them through the day. Feeding accessories make very useful baby boy gifts. Cheerful dish sets and baby bibs with witty lines are gifts that make meal times memorable for a baby boy and his parents. If you have a generous budget, consider larger items such as high chairs, baby booster seats and travel seats. Clothes and accessories. A baby can never have too many outfits. Consider the time of year and local climate and choose clothes and accessories that fit the seasons. Undershirts, pajamas, sleepers, shorts, T-shirts, pants and pairs of jeans are safe bets for baby boys. Hats, jackets, socks, shoes and mittens make useful gifts as well. If you are shopping for a newborn, consider purchasing clothing that is perfect for older babies. As long as you keep the seasons in mind, you can purchase a clothing gift that will be useful once the baby grows out of his adorable infant outfits.

How to Load an Electric Stapler
Adding some extra convenience to your paper-related projects is easy with an electric stapler. Unlike a regular stapler that requires you to use your hand, an electric stapler simply requires you to move the paper group over a small sensor. A mechanism then launches the staple into the paper with no undue stress. You can even find heavy-duty electric staplers for stapling thick packets of paper and rapid electric staplers for high-volume stapling. However, even the best electric stapler needs to be refilled now and then. Take a look below to learn how to load an electric stapler.

Best Ways to Use Paper Shredders
If you're concerned about protecting your personal information and sensitive documents, a paper shredder is an important tool for properly destroying documents. Paper shredders are made with multiple security features. Some shredders cut items into long strips, while cross-cut paper shredders go even further and shred documents into small diamond-shaped pieces. Here are some of the best ways to use a paper shredder to protect your identity and sensitive information. Shred paper documents. Shredding documents containing personal identification reduces the chance of someone obtaining personal information such as your social security number, address, birth date and phone number. Medium-sensitivity documents containing addresses and phone numbers can safely be disposed of with a normal cross-cut or thin strip paper shredder. For more private information and confidential documents, shredders that are medium or high security are the safest selection. These high-end paper shredders cut paper into even smaller pieces. Dispose of media. Some paper shredders are durable enough to destroy CDs and DVDs. As modern life becomes increasingly digital, more and more sensitive information is stored electronically. To protect this data, the right paper shredders reduce CDs and DVDs into jagged shards of plastic, making it impossible for anyone to retrieve sensitive data. Light-duty paper shredders won't shred plastic, but shredders that are medium to heavy duty are capable of shredding CDs and DVDs as well as paper. Destroy old credit cards. Simply breaking an old credit card in half or cutting it up by hand isn't really a safe way to dispose of these easily compromised items. To be sure your credit information is safe, run old or non-used cards through a medium to heavy-duty paper shredder. View All Paper Shredders Back to Guides Directory View All Paper Shredders

Shopping for baby accessories is a major part of the process. Many different baby accessories are available for purchase, and it is important to narrow down the field to find the ones that will be most helpful for you and your growing family. Sleeping accessories. During the first few months of your baby's life, sleep will likely become more of a focus than before your baby was born. Baby accessories that make your life easier by helping you and your baby sleep are important for the first several years of your baby's life and beyond. You may already know the type of bed you want to purchase for your baby, but keep in mind that there are many options, from portable cribs that can go anywhere to co-sleepers that can sidecar on your bed for convenience and bonding. If you choose to have your child sleep in his own room, opt for a baby monitor that will keep you in touch with him throughout the night. Audio and video baby monitors are both available. Feeding accessories. Whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle feed, there are several feeding accessories that are essential and some other items that will make feeding time easier. Bottles, formula, breast pads, bottle cleaners, bibs and burp cloths are some of the basic feeding accessories that are available. You might also consider purchasing a breast pump, a high chair and a breastfeeding pillow. Transportation accessories. Traveling with your baby will be different than traveling by yourself. The right transportation accessories can make going out with your baby simple and efficient. The most important baby transportation accessory is a top-notch car seat. You will also want to purchase a quality diaper bag for all of baby's necessities. Consider purchasing a stroller, a baby carrier or a sling as well.
