This lightweight walker has many perfect features
I purchased for my weak husband. I have arthritis in my hands and am considered a quadriplegic, so I HAD to find a walker that was lightweight and easy to fold/unfold in my wheelchair accessible van. The fold 'button' is the large round 'bump' you see on the bar near the user's knees. Pull it up to fold the walker, push it down to lock it open. Very easy, even for me! The handles adjust for the user's height with a large knob on the side, so again, very easy. The front swivel wheels do lock, so if the user is not very stable, you can stop the swivel so they have full control. I gave only 4 stars because I had to replace the ski feet on the back legs after only about 4 months. I ordered two pairs (elsewhere) because the reviews say that happens often. I was able to replace them myself using the allen wrench that came with the new skies. Even knowing that they wear out quickly, this is the walker I'd purchase again.

I would recommend this but with reservation
I am a daughter of the the person who uses this walker. My mother has purchased 3 of these walkers. She has a older one in a peachy color which I just adore because of the weight of it. I could lift it with one hand if I had something in my other hand (i.e. bags, purses, documents) They don't make or manufacture the peachy color one anymore :( so my mom purchased the rose pink one. That one work out great. Yes it is heavier in weight. Does not fold up as neatly has the peachy color one.But it does and serves the job. My mom wore the foam hand grips off of the rose pinky colored one. Just recently she purchased the cobalt blue one. Again, its heavier than the other two. MY ONLY BIG COMPLAINT IS THAT IT CREAKS SOMETHING AWFUL. IT HAS CREAKED FROM DAY ONE. I HAVE HAD THE TIME YET TO TAKE WD-40 TO THE JOINTS AND SCREWS TO OIL IT. BUT I WILL. I AM MAKING IT MY PRIORITY. I WAS HOPING IT WOULD WORK THE CREAKS OUT OVER TIME. NO SUCH LUCK. I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS ONE CREAKS. THE OTHER TWO DO NOT CREAK. My mother can't use the peachy one, it has become unstable and the pink one is now the back up to the cobalt blue one. If you do purchase one. Just have a new can of WD-40 ON HAND TO APPLY OIL TO THE JOINTS AND SCREWS.
