Reviews of Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box
Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box Review 1: Better than I expected!
Then photo on Amazon looks like a child’s toy, but this device is SOLID and made of heavy steel. I didn’t have as much trouble putting it together as other reviewers, but I dropped it one star because the directions were all but worthless… Right near the end, when I had nearly finished putting it together, I realized that 4 of the screws were different than the rest. They had a flatter head, and that’s when I realized they were meant for the TOP! I chuckled and thought that this could have been avoided if they had simply colored the screws to match where they would go.
So if you’re a home user, and don’t want to waste the money on a full set of boxes, or don’t really have the space, then this is the set for you! Just be forewarned, when you open the back of screws, spread them out and look for the few that are different than the rest, those go through the top! Other than that, I’d advise you use a power drill, else you’ll be screwing for a long time (giggity)…
Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box Review 2: Only buy if you have an IQ
So, upon receiving this unit, my wife states “the online reviews say it is hard to put together”, so I offer to do it for her. I open the box, and find only nine pieces, and a ton of bolts, nuts and washers. Immediately I think “oh my, there must be something more to this”.
I look at the instructions, look at the pieces before me, and separate the four screws that are meant to be flush mounted from the top into the legs. Whew, that was hard! I also deduce that since they are flush mount, there is no need for a washer to go on the top.
Thank goodness for the power of logical thinking, what with it being a flush screw and all. And I’m not even a construction worker, physicist or whatever else some on here think you must be to put this thing together. I also see that the holes are oblong. There is a reason for that: it’s called adjustability.
I quickly put the sides together, only partially tightening each one because common sense would tell you that with adjustability made into the construction to ease assembly, just leave it all loose until the end. Once I had the sides together (5 minutes tops), I put the top on. Now that I have all of the screws in, I can begin to tighten all of the screws down, starting with the top ones, the flush mount.
I grab a 10 mm wrench and a number 2 phillips. Thirty seconds later, the top is secure. Funny thing is that the screws and nuts fit together just fine. However, they are tight all the way on because they are lock washers. Some customers probably need to make sure they know how lock washers work, and that they are always tight from the beginning all the way to the end. Pro Tip: righty tighty, lefty loosey. In this case, we want to go righty. Now for the sides.
I put the number 2 phillips in the head and notice that it is a bit loose. Now, I have two options: I can continue to use the wrong size phillips head screwdriver and strip out the heads, or I can use a wee bit of critical thinking and decide to use the correct size phillips, the next size up: 3. I chose the latter. About 10 minutes later, all of the bolts are tight and the unit is ready to go. Pro Tip #2: there are only three sizes of phillips generally used, so this makes figuring out which one to use pretty easy.
I am consistently amazed by the direction our society is headed, and how each generation seems to be getting worse and worse. I am surprised some can even find the floor in the morning with their feet without explicit instructions on how to do so.
Bottom line: As of right now, I am pleased with this product. Assembly was not that bad, it was a bit wobbly getting the sides together, but nothing major. Time will tell if it holds up to abuse. So, I said in the beginning to only buy if you had an IQ. I wrote that correctly, just an IQ. It doesn’t matter what it is, if you scored anything, you can put this together fairly easily.
Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box Review 3: Have patience putting it together.. still awesome, sturdy product.
I agree with most of the rules, have a power drill ready or a strong man that has patience. I thought the screws were the wrong size but I am also in no shape to be putting stuff like this together. My dad is the strong man but has zero patience … it took him about 20 mins for the first one but after that he got in a groove.
I read the rude review below about having an IQ and found out that there are different screw heads and you just need a bigger size for it to help .. so even though that guy could’ve said it a little nicer, that was informational for a person that doesn’t work with tools, ever.. After you get past putting it together this thing is AWESOME. Ive been using it for two weeks now and love having it around.
