This is good to know. I was lighter when I got mine and have been avoiding using it for some time now because I have exceeded the 200 lbs posted weight limit. I did not realize that restriction was higher when not using the spring. I know what I am pulling out of the closet tonight!!!!!
What is maximun weight limit for your product. Is this restricted for the petite woman or can the plus-size woman use it too. I myself weigh 250lbs. So you can see why I ask this question.
As Mistress Kay noted, the weight limit is 400 lbs without the spring. However, if you install it like it is in the picture with the spring (increases flexibility and movement), then the maximum weight recommended it 200 lbs. So, you could use it without the spring attachment just fine I believe.
Im 250, I wonder if the spring wouldnt spring with me on it....
I'm pretty sure the spring would spring with you on it, but I think the weight limit is intended to avoid long-term damage to the spring. It's probably also for your safety to avoid it snapping from over-use over time.
