Lead Time

Sometimes the folks at Detecto don't manufacture a scale until an order for one is placed, so it may take 2 to 3 weeks for your Detecto product to ship.
If you need to know about how long your order will take, contact us before ordering and we'll be happy to check.
I guess that's the price you pay for getting that Detecto quality!

Product Details

Easy To Use Weight Beams Once the scale is set up, weighing will be a very simple task. All you 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.

Height Rod This professional scale comes complete with an attached height rod, turning this beam scale into the ultimate measuring station. Get weight and height all in one spot.

Built In Wheels For Easy Transportation Detecto equipped this hospital scale with rolling castors on the rear of the platform to help you move it from place to place without taking it apart.

Durable Construction You'll be able to get accurate weight readings day after day with this Detecto scale. This professional scale is built with a durable, steel frame and has a removable platform, for easy cleaning.

Very good and accurate scale
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
I bought this scale because I was unhappy with the lack of accuracy with digital bathroom scales. This one definitely is accurate and gives repeatable measurements.
There is a little assembly required, but it is pretty easy.
I will say that the Height measuring rod has the potential to pinch the 4 letter words out of you when you lower it to put it away, so be careful. Otherwise this is a very good scale, and should hold up well.

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".
