- Check all pieces for signs of visible wear or damage.
- Check springs in snap hook and pull-pins for proper tension alignment.
- If the spring sticks or has lost its rigidity, replace it immediately.
- To ensure prolonged upholstery life and proper hygiene, all upholstered pads should be wiped down with a damp cloth after every workout.
- Periodically take the time to use a mild soap or an approved vinyl upholstery cleaner to deter the onset of cracking or drying. Avoid using any abrasive cleaners or cleaners not intended for use on vinyl.
- Replace ripped or warm upholstery immediately.
- Keep short or pointed objects clear of all upholstery.
- Inspect and familiarize yourself with any safety warnings or other user information posted on each decal.
Nuts and Bolts
- Inspect all nuts and bolts for any loosening and tightening if needed.
- Go through a re-tightening sequence periodically to ensure that all hardware is tensioned proper.
- These surfaces are designed to supply secure footing and need to be replaced if they appear worn or become slippery.
Belts and Cables
- We uses only high quality belt, and mil-spec cables.
- Visually inspect the belt and cables for fraying, cracking, peeling, or discoloration.
- While the machine is not in use, carefully run your fingers along the belt or cable to feel for thinning or bulging areas.
- Replace belts and cables immediately at the first of damage or wear. Do not use equipment until belts or cables have been replaced.
Belt and Cable Tension
- Referring to the Owners Manual, when belt or cables are used check all bolts attachments to be sure they are properly attached.
- Check slack in cables and re-adjust cable tension if needed.
Seat Sleeves and Guide Rods
- Wipe down adjusting tubes with a dust free rag before applying lubricant.
- Lubricate seat sleeves and Guide Rods with a Silicon or Teflon based lubricant spray.
- Referring to the Owner’s Manual carefully disassemble the bearing from its housing and place a finger full of light grease (lithium, super lube, etc.) into the inside of the bearing. Using your finger, press the grease into the ball-bearing and their tracks. Repeat until the ball-bearing tracks are full of grease. Insert the shaft back into the bearing and wipe off excess grease.
