I just bought the MAK Chair Suspension and wondered if anyone could share insights, tips, caveats, etc.

I bought the booklet by Kyle Peron, but wondered if there are any additional "real-life" insights you could share.

Thanks!

John: Thanks my friend. Simply ask me any questions you would like to know as I would be more then happy to answer them for you. What types of real-life insights are you looking for? Are you planning on using this with a child helper? Are you planning on using it in a birthday style show as an add on? Let me klnow your questions so I can best help you.

There are many, many earlier threads on the Chair Suspension that are packed with tips. Gold nuggets simply waiting to be discovered. Smile

Check both "The little darlings" and the "Grand illusion" areas, when using the search function.

Hard to say from what Kyle has covered in his book... I feel like that entire booklet is written out of real-life experience.

Don't know if it is in the booklet or not, but I have found marking the floor with Masking Tape on where I want the chairs to be is very helpful!

Thanks John. I really do appreciate it. You are correct. Everything in that ebook is from real-world experience. What I do is angle the chairs just a bit. I like the anchorage chair to be back a little bit more then the other chair. It just helps a bit rather then having it parallel.

Thanks for all your willingness to help!
I noticed for instance that putting the board back into place seems awkward. Surely there's a better way than putting my arms between a little girls feet!
Like the idea of the angle and marking the spot.
Yes I'm planning on using a child volunteer. don't have many friends under 100 pounds anymore! LOL
Will also check other threads

You are most welcome. There really is a way to put the board back that makes things easier. It takes practice and you require a certain feel for it. Grab the sides of the board near the bottom edge. You then stand where the child’s feet are and slide the board under by angling it downwards. You then bring the far end up until it this the “secret part” and you then slide forward. By doing this, it rides up properly and falls into place much faster and easier. Hard to explain but you will see what I mean if you try it.

Hope this helps.

Short and to the point. Very much helpful for the load and unload.

Most welcome. It is hard to explain in written word, but if you give it a try, you will see what I mean, it makes it much easier to take the board out and replace it back in much smoother.
