This Unique Device allows serious high jumpers to mark approach run quickly and accurately with one angle, one distance, saves time for more warm-ups and prevents costly measuring errors. Step-Saver fits on the flat base of most High Jump Standards. Designed and patented by Dave F. Johnston World Class Coach $12.95 and you get 4 sets of savers in a bag (includes domestic shipping.)
Remove 1 set of labels from the bag and align the center of the two together with the clock 12 towards the run-up, centered on the bottom post of the standard. Right side for left foot take-off and left side for right foot take-off. You may use one side for both just an extreme angle! Place the hook pointing away from you towards standard upright.
Use the hook centered on the graphic to attach the tape measure. Seek the angle, a clock is on the Graphic for familiarity. Once you know your High Jump take-off point use the step saver to measure the angle by clock and length to the spot. For left foot take-off use right side standard.
For Right foot take off use left standard. Go to any other meet and the numbers are the same using the Step-Saver device. Take the other sets with you to the meet follow instructions again and leave the High Jump Step-Saver for them to enjoy. The kit has a total of 4 sets you can take the remaining 3 with you.
If you do not have a flat plate to place stickers on, use some Foam Gator Board (not included) cut to fit the upright and secure to standard with Tie strips. Cut-out to fit the standard upright. As long as the center is aligned with the up-right your number will be the same!
Take the other sets with you to the meet follow instructions again and leave the High Jump Step-Saver for them to enjoy. There are 4 in the package. (Tape measure not included). If you leave a set on the standards at a school, send us an email of the school and the coach's name. We will contact them and if they buy a set of 4 we will send you one replacement step-saver FREE. (limited to one per sale)
