One of our favorite things about what we get to do everyday at Teeter is talk to our customers! You all have lots of great questions and we try to address some of the most common ones on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. Every Friday, we’ll focus on one FAQ in more detail. We encourage you to email us or post a comment with additional questions and we’ll send you an answer, you may even see your question pop up on a future blog post!
The ankle locking mechanism is the feature that locks and secures your feet/ankles prior to inverting. It is a simple yet vital part – this is what holds you in! In fact, the ankle lock is one of the main components evaluated by UL’s inversion table safety spec (UL 1647). We wouldn’t want to hang upside down from an inversion table ankle system that hasn’t been held accountable to a 3rd party safety certification – would you? Currently, Teeter is the only brand of inversion table listed to UL 1647.
Are there different types of ankle lock systems?
Teeter offers 2 different types of locking mechanisms on our manual inversion tables.
