This item was bought as an addition to another Body Solid home gym machine I already own. I needed an apparatus that worked my legs and would fit into the limited space of my home's downstairs. Since receiving the leg press, I have used the item for about a month, and I am completely satisfied with it. First of all, it was easy to put together. Like the my other Body Solid Home Gym, there were no written instruction on how to put the leg press together - only diagrams. But these were sufficient to get the job done. It's very easy to assume a prone squat position under the weight bar, as well as very comfortable. Placement of my feet on the foot plate above was easily accomplished and keeps my feet in a secure and comfortable position during my leg press. There are three adjustable support pin holes on each of the vertical weight support tubes, that allow a lifter to initially mount the machine in a quarter squat position, according to their height and leg length. These pins are easily removed during exercise, so that the lifter can go through any range of motion they want. I am a shorter lifter (5' 8) and have no trouble starting at a quarter squat position, extending my legs before I begin a set, removing the pins, and going to a 3/4 squat position. In my opinion, a taller lifter would have no problems, since I am using the lowest support pin hole position and there are two more positions above the ones I use. Replacing the pins after a set of leg presses is easy, although I could imagine it being slightly difficult if the lifter was performing maximum repetitions (making sure the pins are set horizontally through the hole when fatigued). Without weights on the bar, this leg press machine was a bit squeaky. But the addition of weight, quieted the machine. To end this review, I am very satisfied and happy with my purchase.
