Question “What is the difference between this stand and the less expensive on that you offer?|Neither picture for either frame and none of the customer questions talk about being able to hang and use the footrest properly. Is that possible with either frame? And if so, how as I don't see a way to hang the foot rest.”
Answer I just hang the footrest from the same spring I hang the chair (the instructions talk about an O ring, but the O ring is separate, not attached as pictured and I don't know how the heck to use it, but hanging the rope directly on the spring works fine...and so does hanging the footrest their.
Answer The footrest hangs from the top ring (the same ring the ropes for the chair are tied to) by a separate rope. You can use the footrest by adjusting the height to your desired place by shortening or lengthening the rope (using the knot at the ring). When not in use, the footrest is easily swung around in back of the chair.
