Then photo on Amazon looks like a child’s toy, but this Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box 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)…
I researched many different plyo boxes before deciding to take a chance with this Fuel Pureformance Adjustable Plyometrics Box. We wanted some different height options, which often means a set of multiple units that are stacked for storage. Having adjustability is a nice feature, although I was a bit skeptical before purchasing, about whether this product could be adjustable and sturdy. It’s not easy to judge this unit from the photo, but we have been pleasantly surprised. It’s a very solid plyo box and serves our needs quite well. The price is good also.
My daughter is a volleyball player, and uses this regularly. As mentioned in another review, the assembly instructions, if that’s what you call them, are not very helpful, but my middle school age daughter wanted to assemble the unit herself and successfully did that after I got her started (I doubled-checked tightening of nuts/bolts). I would suggest if you order this unit, to be careful what other items you include in the same order, as Amazon did a pathetic job of packaging this heavy item for shipping, by combining along with other smaller/lighter/more fragile items in the same shipping box.
The assembly directions are criminally bad. KEY TO SUCCESSFUL ASSEMBLY: Put the legs on first, then the sides, BUT install all nuts & bolts at first hand tightened only. This leaves the whole thing loose enough to get the last side on. It still takes a good whack to get it to align.
The parts reeked of industrial solvent when I opened the package up. It makes me very sad for whomever in China is working in that factory because, if this still smelled like that when it arrived, that factory must be awful.
The unit is absurdly heavy. I am a fit guy and I still curse it when I have to move it. Anyone weaker or with a bad back is not going to want to be lugging this thing around.
It is sturdy and stable in the lowest 2 height settings. It wobbles a bit on the highest setting. After saying “hey y’all, watch this” I went ahead and jumped on it. The wobbling doesn’t detract from its use at that height, but it makes you feel a bit uneasy.
