Leg height

·         Before using the steel drop arm bedside commode with padded seat and arms, adjust the height of each leg to the specific needs of the user, ensuring that all legs are at the same height.

·         When the desired height is reached, lock the legs into place by aligning buttons into the proper holes.

·         Push down on or pull the legs to make sure they are locked into place.


·         The toilet seat must be in down position before using.

·         Failure to do so may lead to breakage of the commode and potential injury.

·         Do not install the commode without first reading and understanding the instruction manual.

·         If you cannot understand the instructions, contact a healthcare provider or technical professional before installing.

·         Check all parts for shipping damage before assembly.

·         Make sure that the height-adjusting snap buttons fully protrude through the same respective hole of each leg extension. This will ensure that leg extensions are securely locked in position and an even height is achieved.

·         Make sure that all screws, nuts and/or bolts are tightened.

·         Inspect the rubber tips on the leg extensions for rips, wear or if they are missing. Replace any or all if any of these imperfections exist.

·         All four leg extensions with rubber tips must touch the floor simultaneously at all times.

·         Users with limited physical strength should be supervised or assisted by a caregiver while using commode.
