I ordered this for my fathers 75th birthday. We were extremely unhappy with the quality of this product.
It is flimsy and difficult to fold. He had to readjust the size every time he wanted to fold it. The sharp edges at the end of each segment will eventually cut the inner cord, rendering it useless. This product doesn't seem to be able to hold the weight to assist with standing.
Why does he have to check the base for safety? He isn't going to remember to do that on a regular basis.
Im really unhappy with the product and the fact I have to pay return shipping for a inferior product. I made this purchase thru Drugstore.com.
Monetary Loss: $5.
