Comments about All Pro Power Pulley Weighted Handle Overhead Door Pulley:
While using a similar device in my physical therapy sessions, they recommended buying one for home use, so I did. I was surprised that this device is so heavy duty, very robust hardware, but that's probably a 'pro'. The 'con' is that the handles are heavy duty iron(?) weighted handles, and not sure why that's necessary, as the ones I used in therapy were just 'plain' handles, and this design certainly added to the cost. This is a device for passive exercise I believe, one arm raising the other, so why the weighted handles? They cancel each other out. Anyway, the big 'con', and the reason I am returning it, is that this thing is built like a tank, heavily over-engineered for the intended use, and then the manufacturer uses the cheapest pulley possible? No bearings for smooth operation, just a solid metal shaft through the hole in the metal roller, which causes squealing that is very annoying. The first time I set this up and started exercising, my wife asked if I could do this exercise some time when she's not around, it was too hard to watch TV or listen to music. Yes, I could oil it from time to time when it squeals, but I should not have to do that for a design flaw.
