This product is exactly what I had been looking for. I have seen similar items to this one, but they always involved placing them underneath a mattress or chair cushion which seemed like they would be unstable. When I saw the Salon Step I knew it would work much better. And it does! I've used it not only to do a pedicure for myself, but anytime I need to tie my shoes, or just clean my toenails, or anything involving lifting my foot up for more than several seconds. It works just fine for me, and I'm glad I found it. Thank you Salon Step!
