Teeter wants to help you relieve stress, not add to it. The BILT App can help you reduce assembly time so that you can spend less time putting your Teeter together and more time relieving your back pain and so much more!
One of our favorite things about what we get to do everyday at Teeter is talk to our customers! You all have lots of great questions and we try to address some of the most common ones on our Frequently Asked Questions Page (FAQ). Every Friday, we’ll focus on one FAQ in more detail. We encourage you to contact us or post a comment with additional questions and we’ll send you an answer, you may even see your question pop up on a future blog post!
A lot of Teeter users have told us that they always leave their inversion table up and ready to use, but even the die-hard inverter needs to store their table once in a while. Is your brother’s family coming into town? Having a party? Getting your carpets shampooed? Whatever the reason, no need to fear – Anthony is here! Watch Anthony as he shows us 4 of the easiest ways to store your Teeter Inversion Table.
If your Teeter Hang Ups Contour-Series or NXT-R Inversion Table is rotating too slowly, too quickly or not at all, you may need to adjust your rotation control settings. This video walks you through the process.
One of the features that truly sets any Teeter Hang Ups inversion table apart from other brands is the precision balancing. This is in no small part due to what we call “roller hinges,” the parts that connect the table bed to the A-frame base.
The roller hinges are stronger and last longer than any other on the market (backed by these engineer tests), plus the roller bearings that rotate the bed are coated with a special material that ensures smooth, quiet rotation. The three hole settings in each roller hinge allow you to adjust the inversion table’s responsiveness for your body type and are precisely calibrated to allow effortless rotation control with subtle arm movements -key to ensuring a relaxing, effective inversion experience with your Teeter inversion table.
The below video is an excerpt from a Teeter instructional DVD, explaining more about how the roller hinge settings work:
The three roller hinge settings are:
- Setting “A” (the hole closest to hinge point of your roller hinges)
- This setting is for those under 220 lbs who would like their Teeter Inversion Table to lock out in full inversion or for those with very light statures who require a very responsive bed rotation.
- Setting “B” (the center hole)
- This setting is the most utilized by Teeter users, as it is moderately responsive for most people. In this setting, most people under 220 lbs will not be able to not lock-out in full inversion. Those over 220 lbs who want to lock-out in full inversion should use this setting.
- Setting “C” (the hole furthest from the hinge point of your roller hinge)
- This setting is the least responsive and where we suggest all users start as they become familiar with inversion. In this setting, most users will be unable to lock-out in full inversion.
My wife and I recently bought a outdoor trampoline for the kids. Last night, we tackled the assembly which was not a great experience to say the least – the flow of the text was jagged and hard to follow, the images were photos printed in grayscale and the combination of the two left me confused and alone. No support videos or 800 numbers. All I had was a website with no link to any support material. I was frustrated and discouraged that something I made the investment in was not easier to put together.
Working at Teeter, I suppose I have a glorified standard of what support materials should arrive with a product. Since every product comes with detailed assembly instructions that include detailed drawings and step-by-step directions, as well as our 800 number, email address, and website that has the support material available for download, I know our customers are taken care of.
What do we mean when we talk about your Teeter’s ankle locking system?
The ankle locking mechanism is the feature that locks and secures your feet/ankles prior to inverting. It is a simple yet vital part – this is what holds you in! In fact, the ankle lock is one of the main components evaluated by UL’s inversion table safety spec (UL 1647). We wouldn’t want to hang upside down from an inversion table ankle system that hasn’t been held accountable to a 3rd party safety certification – would you? Currently, Teeter is the only brand of inversion table listed to UL 1647.
Are there different types of ankle lock systems?
Teeter offers 3 different types of locking mechanisms on our manual inversion tables.
T-Pin Ankle Lock System
Offered on many models, including the wildly popular EP-560 Ltd. This spring-loaded pin features an ergonomic grip for comfortable release, yet snaps in place securely when you push down on the front foam rollers to lock your ankles in place.
When the pin fully engages, you can hear an audible ‘click’. If it does not engage, you will still see part of the orange circle. Adjust the front foam rollers until you hear the click of the pin snapping into place and you can no longer see the orange. The T-Pin does require users to have to bend over a little further to secure their ankles, but is a comfortable option for many people.
The EZ-Reach Ankle System is offered on select models, including the EP-960 Ltd.
Our Ratchet requires less of a reach than the T-Pin, so it is an ideal option for those with have trouble or experience discomfort while bending over. Instead of pulling up as you would on the T-Pin, simply push down on the long handle, slide closed and release to secure your ankles.
Deluxe EZ-Reach-Ankle System
The deluxe option is offered on select models, including the EP-970 Ltd.
This ratchet is even longer than the EZ-Reach System! The extra-long, smooth ratcheting handle that reduces bend and strain when securing the ankle supports. Unlocking this deluxe option is easy. Simply push down on the blue button on top of the ratchet then pull towards you to unlock.
