Picked up from site to store last night & saw these on recall. However if you're lucky like me the model # has ".1" at the end of it because the saftey strap that is pictured frays apparently and is replaced with a hefty chain so that is a plus. I must say this is not as balanced quite like what I remember from using my a Teeter Brand inversion system a few years ago because I have to use the handles to put myself back even with the right weight/height combo settings from the user's manual. Although for the price, what can one expect right? Then when I do get back I realize why the hefty saftey chain is provided. Without using it to limit from flipping completely upside down, you can't get back up by again, even using the handles. As I remember you're supposed to be able to just use your arms to tilt back and forth, but again that was on a more delux model of a different brand, and after all this one did snap my sciatica right out last night after being uncontrollably inverted for about 5 minutes, completely upside-down mind you, until my hunny came in the house to help flip me back up. Yes I did read the manual, and I have operated these before. Just seems that if you're a tall indiviual, or I would suspect if you are a woman who has been gifted with a larger upper body mass that you may want to get a spotter to flip you back up. All in all I'd rate it as a "meh" investment that I'll just have to get used to.
