The assembled product is convenient and easy to use. Assembling it was another story. Better directions are needed. The instructions said that a Phillips screwdriver was required. OK - got it. Direction after 'checking the parts' is to attach foot using flat head screws. fine: got the screws and my Phillips and went to work. But it was difficult turning and it took me a lot of wasted effort to realize that they had omitted to say: with the included Allen wrench. Grrr I also found the top platform, made of particle board, difficult to attach even with the correct screws and driver. Weak wrists are part of it; deeper starter holes would have helped. I finally got out my electric drill and deepened them myself.
