Good! – Digital Weighting Hook Scale with Neck Strap (40kg Max / 10g Resolution) Reviews

Pros:
It's a GOOD scale. It was reading the same as my calibrated scale. And it's quite accurate. Can be set to lbs or kg. It does NOT have a "lock-in" feature. Which, for me, is good- I need to measure variable tension and that lock-in of other scales was a major PITA problem. This one will of course power down after a few min so it can't be a continuous-status scale, but... whatever. The CASE is flimsy. It's polystyrene and will probably crack if dropped from a height. I don't think it's anything but the outer case though, the load cell seems solidly attached to the pull handle internally.
Cons:
The CASE being flimsy... but, like I say, the internals There's no swivel on the hook. I wish there was one, I need one for my purposes, but it'd probably be made less sturdy if there was one. It's pretty sturdy as it is. The hook might bend if you went all the way to 40kg.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good scale, high capacity, accurate, and GREAT price.
