You have purchased a high-quality piece of equipment that is constructed of the finest
components and materials. Proper care requires only a small, but very important investment of time in a regular, routine maintenance program.
|Foot Bar Support Bar Hardware||✔|
☑ Overall Machine ☑ Springs ☑ Tracking System ☑ Hardware ☑ Foot Bar and Foot Bar Support Bar
Overall Machine: We highly recommend that you visually inspect the machine daily.
Springs: Even with extensive pre-testing and rigorous quality inspections, the possibility of spring failure exists. In addition, severe nicks or abrasions may develop as a result of misuse and could lead to springs breaking prematurely. Not replacing springs in a timely manner could also lead to failure. While breakage or deformation of a spring and the resulting potential
for injury is a remote possibility, a daily inspection is critical. If, at any time, a gap between the coils of a spring becomes evident, that spring needs to be replaced immediately. The springs are nickel-plated to prevent rust or corrosion from perspiration, condensation and/or humidity. Minor variations in the brightness of the finish are the result of different plating batches and do not affect the performance of the springs.
Tracking System: The protected bearings in the carriage wheels are permanently lubricated and require no further service. You should inspect the axles weekly. Remove any debris that might be trapped between the wheel and carriage frame and tighten the axles if any wheel “play” is evident.
Hardware: All hardware should be checked every 2 months to make sure that every nut, bolt and fastener is secure. If at any time, a component exhibits free play, its hardware needs to be properly re-tightened immediately.
Foot Bar and Foot Bar Support Bar:
The hardware that connects the Foot Bar Support Bar to the Foot Bar should be inspected daily or after each use. The bolts should be sufficiently tight to create friction at the pivot point and prevent the Foot Bar Support Bar from swinging freely.
☑ Frame ☑ Upholstery ☑Tracking System
Framework: The framework and wood components should be cleaned with a mild, soapy solution. A good furniture polish can also be used on the wood components.
Upholstery: We recommend wiping down your vinyl upholstery with a mild cleaning solution after each use. For example, a solution of one part Simple Green and 12 parts water in a spray bottle works well.
Tracking System: The tracks upon which your carriage rides are powder coated to inhibit the buildup of aluminum oxide. Clean them on an as-needed basis using a warm, mild soapy water solution and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
☑ Springs ☑ Ropes ☑ Double Loops ☑ Safety Clips
Springs: All springs should be replaced each year. Any spring that exhibits early signs of fatigue (for example, separation in coils) need to be replaced immediately. High-use facilities should replace springs more often.
Ropes, Double Loops, Safety Clips: Over time you may you may experience some minor “fraying” in the ropes. Fraying is completely normal and to be expected. Any ropes with excess fraying, tearing or other problems need to be replaced immediately. Double loops, safety clips, and so on can wear over time. Replace them as required.
