What reviewers didn't like

Contoured vinyl handgrips give you some extra security, but users say they may emit some odor when you first unbox this walker.
Another complaint people had was that the walker was hard to put together. They found that once the walker was put together, the unit would fold down flat and it took up more room than they would have liked.
