Is this the right scale for your home? Maybe not.
These scales are great for clinics and hospitals, but due to their size and design they may not be the right fit for your home. We're always here to help if you need advice on what kind of weight scale is best for your needs. Here's how to contact us.

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, Double-Sided Weight Beams Once the 439 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. You can even read weights from behind the scale if you want thanks to the double-sided beams.

Height Rod This mechanical eye level beam scale comes complete with a height rod to attach, turning the 439 beam scale into the ultimate measuring station. Get weight and height all in one spot.

Durable Construction You'll be able to get accurate weight readings day after day with the Detecto 439. 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 439'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.

Easy to assemble. Did not need instructions but they are available on the Old Will Knott Scales website. Works fine. All mechanical, not batteries needed. After assembly, use the adjustment screw to balance the beam exactly at zero weight. The height measurement is nice to have and it does not interfere at all with the weight measurement.

Detecto Scale 439

The scale is great. Easy to use and calibrate. Packaging needs to be improved. The bottom piece (where you stand) came with all parts disassembled and it is intended to come assembled. Had a little bit of a tough time to reassemble but did it and the scale works great.
The service at OldWillKnottScales is truly exceptional. From ordering to calling for help to reassemble the stand. I will buy again from OldWillKnottScales not necessarily for the scale brand itself but for the store brand!
Thank you!

I'm 86 years young and could no longer read the floor model scale I was using.I've always wanted a medical quality scale but the price always kept me away. Thank you for offering such great quality for a very reasonable price. Although the weight of the product was a little hard for me to handle, I was able to assemble the parts myself following your directions. This will no doubt last longer than I will but others will use it for a long time. Thanks for a great quality for a price I could afford.

Scale is accurate and has easily consistent (ie, I can step off and step back on -- even in a different location on the pad -- and get the same reading). I would definitely buy again.

I was very happy with my Detecto 439 scale. Between ordering and reception on my doorstep only took a few days. The video on the website about assembly made putting it together much easier than expected. Now I noticed that it is the same scale that is used at my gym. Much, much more reliable than any spring or electronic floor scale that I have used in the past. Thank you.
