A guide to purchasing inversion equipment.
You’ve decided that you would like to own an inversion table, but you don’t know which one would work best for you. There’s a dozen or more brands, countless models, a vast selection of stores and on-line retailers from which to buy, and not to mention… a wide range of prices! Shopping for an inversion table can be an overwhelming experience, so here's a guide that may be of help to you:
With the increasing popularity of inversion equipment, the market has seen many companies jump on the bandwagon…some more reputable than others. It’s important to consider the following when making a purchase:
Reputation for quality
Is the company known for producing good quality products? When hanging upside down, clamped only by your ankles, you want to be sure you are inverting on good quality equipment. Make sure you consider what goes into making the equipment, like worthy materials and craftsmanship.
Certifications and listings
One measure for quality is the product certifications and listings bestowed upon the equipment by third party compliance testers. Companies like UL and ETL test products for public safety and are reputed for their stringent standards.
How many years has the company been in business? How long have they been manufacturing inversion equipment? The more experience a company has, the more you can be confident there are good quality controls in place and that they will be around in the future to support the products they produce.
While inversion equipment should be built to withstand years of use, it is important to know that a company will stand behind the products it builds. Be sure to check out the type of warranty being offered.
Have you ever purchased a product that needed to be assembled, only to find that the instructions were impossible to follow? Make sure that your inversion equipment comes with quality support materials that show you how to assemble and use the equipment, including printed manuals and a video or DVD.
Is the company known for good customer service? What happens if you have questions about the assembly or use of your inversion table? It would be nice to know that you have someplace to go for help when you need it.
The reality is, for one reason or another, sometimes products need to be exchanged or returned. Be sure you are working with a company that will make this process easy and painless.
You may have noticed that Teeter Hang Ups inversion equipment is not the cheapest available, nor is it the most expensive. Because of their commitment to meeting high standards for quality and durability, they have made manufacturing choices that result in the best quality product at the most reasonable price.
For example, all of the roller hinges are made of high carbon steel which is heat-treated in key components, resulting in a higher strength product. Specialized pivot bearings ensure smooth rotation with no squeaks for the life of the table. The main shafts are triple-plated chrome with a steel wall thickness 20% greater than any on the market.
All of this technical jargon represents a final product that far surpasses other brands. We hope that you'll put your trust in the incredible amount of research, testing and experience that has gone into making Teeter Hang Ups the best quality, most reliable inversion equipment on the market today.
You’ve decided that Teeter Hang Ups is your brand of choice, but now you’re faced with determining which inversion product best suits your needs. Below you’ll find a brief description of each model.

What are the Differences
in the EP-Series Tables?
‘moves as you move’
The EP-560 is the entry level table in the newest 60 series line. Ergo embrace ankle system with spring lock, ankle comfort dial and head pillow.

The Gravity Boots offer an alternative to the standard ankle clamps, boasting super-soft foam liners and a lightweight but highly durable shell for a secure and comfortable fit. The Boots can be utilized with the inversion table or at the gym. The Traction Handles offer a way to achieve greater decompression, even while only partially inverted, or as a tool for aiding in oscillation.
Beyond those offered by the EP-560, the EP-960 model inversion table boasts additional features to make the inversion process easier and more comfortable. With a comfort grip easy-to-reach ankle ratchet, this model is ideal for those who have a difficult time bending down to secure their ankles. Larger Stretch Max Handles, EZ-Angle tether strap and Traction Handles and improved Ergo Embrace ankle system make this model stand out as the ultimate in manually-operated inversion tables.

DEX II - decompression & extension
Experience inversion in a completely new way with the DEX II, a forward-rotating, user-controlled inversion machine. The body is placed in a 90/90 position, which helps to focus on the decompression of the lower back and target traction to the hip joints and spine without loading the ankles and knees. An improvement on the traditional roman chair, the DEX II comes with unique traction handles that allow for additional decompression. Owner's manual included.
EZ-Up Inversion System
For fit and flexible, the EZ-Up Inversion System (complete with doorway Inversion Rack and Gravity Boots) is a compact, affordable inversion solution. The double-bar system, which does not interfere with the normal operation of the door, places the user up and out from the doorframe to give adequate room for stretching/exercise plus makes getting up and down a bit easier. Instructional DVD and 90-page book included. (The Rack purchased separately includes the DVD only).
All Teeter Hang Ups® are UL Classified 60601-1 and include an Owner’s Manual and
instructional DVD included.
