A readily adjustable fulcrum is required for competitive diving. A geared fulcrum permits divers to select the right amount of spring for his or her weight and for specific dives. Calibrated markings on the gear-holder make it easy for the diver to re-set the fulcrum where desired.
Smooth, precise adjustments are easy due to the machined gears and freely turning sleeve on the axle. The adjusting wheel is operable by hand or foot for the full 24 inch fulcrum range. (Stops are provided to limit the range for recreational use.) Holders keep the rolling gears locked into the gear track and shields all gears from contact by divers and spectators.
The Economy model contains painted cast aluminum and stainless steel components.
