Solid but some troublespots
 from Chicago,  Sep 7, 2011

Overall the product is good for the money, but really disappointed with minor but important quality & design defect with hip pads. Assembly was straighforward and quick. When inserting 1 of the 4 bolts which secures the 2 pads to frame, the anchor came loose inside the pad/board unit. I was careful to not cross thread, I had hand-tightened and was applying light pressure with wrench when it came loose. So, I only have 1 bolt snug to hold the pad. Fortunately it seems to be working OK, but I'm nervous about durability. The other hip pad is secured properly, but some sort of defect in design or with materials because one of the bolts pokes my hip during use. I can drape another hi density foam pad over both to make unit acceptable. Also, one of the hip pads out of the box had a small tear mid-fabric on side, apparently from jostling in carton - it wasn't packed very well from manufacturer.

  • How accurate was the sizing? accurate
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The metal construction is solid with excellent stability. The hip pads are lower quality and their design is not ideal.
  • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Defective recessed anchor in hip pad which secures to base
  • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
