Product Details

Easy To Use, Double-Sided Weight Beams Once the 437 is set up, weighing will be a very simple task. All ya need to do is step on this beam scale, slide the larger weight to the approximate weight area, then do some fine tuning with the smaller weight. You'll want to keep manipulating the smaller weigh until the hand and counter hands line up. You can even read weights from behind the scale if you want thanks to the double-sided beams.

Durable Construction You'll be able to get accurate weight readings day after day with the Detecto 437. This medical scale is built with a durable, steel frame with an electrostatic powder paint finish and a removable platform, for easy cleaning.

No Batteries Here You won't have to ever worry about running out of battery power, or trying to find a wall outlet, with this beam scale. The Detecto 437's two beam design allows you to accurately weigh patients, in as small as 1/4 pound graduations, without a digital readout.

1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY This Detecto eye-level beam scale comes with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects.

Doctors Scale
This is exactly what I was looking for. Digital scales tend to fluctuate by 2lbs either more or less than your actual weight. This scale is accurate and dependable. I love tracking my weight, but I I want it to be accurate and this scale does not lie.

Perfect for us...
We were exasperated with electronic scales that lasted a year or two. Weird batteries and inconsistent readings. We wanted a mechanical scale, and this one was perfect. Easy to assemble and easy to use. Absolutely consistent readings. We love this scale, which looks a lot like the one in your doctor's office. It's large, but it fits neatly into a corner of your bedroom. It's more expensive than normal scales, but it's clearly going to last decades, not a few years. Finally, buying this was a real pleasure .... messaging with a sense of humor and impeccable service. It's a pleasure to know that companies like this still exist in America. Thanks.

Quality product.
This is as good a product, and as well made, as any Doctor's office scales. I couldn't be more satisfied.

perfect scale for athlete
We bought this scale after reading other reviews. Our son plays age/weight restricted football. The typical $30 scale from Target or Costco would show different weights every time you stepped on it, or would have a "feature" where it locked in the (wrong) weight, which was no good. This scale is perfect! You can hop on and off 100 times and it will give you the same, accurate weight every time. We zero'd it out when we bought it a year ago, and it's still perfectly zero'd out. This scale had everything we needed and nothing more. Perfect scale for athletes that have to know their actual weight day to day.

Best Little Scale in Louisiana!
Well, first there is the service! Shipped the same day it was ordered! How do you do that? In three work days I was unpacking the scale and in 9 minutes it was working! Unfortunately it is extremely accurate and consistent. I guess I will have to address how heavy the object are that are placed upon the scale for measurement (the diet is working a little). Five stars are really not enough to rate this company or the product. This is simply put the best buying experience I have ever had.

I've had this scale for a couple months now. It was very easy for this grandmother to put together alone. It's consistently accurate. Finally a scale that gives true readings, even if I don't always like what it telling me lol. It's well made, sturdy and as long as you have the room for it I highly recommend it, oh and compared to like products this price can't be beat.

We know you have a choice when you buy scales online. Just know that when you buy digital scales from Old Will, it's always a "Worry Free Deal".
