    Bought the kneeblades as I have numerous rental properties where I am removing carpet and installing laminate. I first used these on 5/15/18 and one of the gelpads would slip out of the wheelbase everytime I put weight on it. Also, the stitching was starting to tear as mentioned in another review. I contacted Milescraft on 5/16/18 and after providing photos and a short video of the issue a new set was sent under warranty which I received on 5/19/18. Kudos to Jessica in customer service for her assistance.
    I used the new set on 5/24/18. The pads stay in the base however the buckle that the strap goes through constantly turns sideways as soon as I kneel down. This lengthes the strap which loosens the fit of the kneeblades against my knee. It also puts stress on the stitching of the strap. I do not believe the stitching will last under this stress.
    In conclusion, I was impressed with the quick customer service response. I am disappointed that I spent $54.00 on a product that I will not be using. When the buckle turns sideways, it twists the strap making it narrower. The strap then digs into the back of your leg making it too uncomfortable to wear. I am surprised that the buckle problem is not mentioned in the other reviews and I am open to suggestions if there is a way to avoid this.

    I’ve worked in flooring for 25 years. I do epoxy and terrazzo floors. So its not uncommon for me to spend 8 plus hour’s on my knees. I just got these today and havent had a chance to use them in the field yet. But right out of the gate i noticed a few problems. The first thing i noticed was they are heavy. They weight about 3.5 lbs per knee pad. Which isn’t a problem when you’re on your knees. But if you’re on your feet moving around i got a feeling they are going to slide down your leg. The second problem i noticed was the strap is located to high on the knee pad. When i put them on the strap hits the back of my knee right where it bends. Also the strap is really thin in thicknesses on the Velcro side. I have a feeling that the strap will cause chafing after prolonged periods of use.

    Now on to the pros about the product. The actual knee pad cushion seems to be very comfortable. Also the wheels let you glide across the floor without any trouble. I personally didn’t experience any problems with my knees wanting to split apart.

    I love the concept! I think if i were to make a pair. More than one strap. Also thicker straps set lower, with a longer body maybe that goes on to your shin, and maybe an extra wheel.

    I will try to write another review after i where them for a day.

    I am not so sure three stars is really a fair rating, as the quality of these are top notch and they are comfy on the knees. I read some comments about how much leg strength you may or may not need to use these effectively, but after a few hours on them I quickly realized my leg muscles are not what they used to be. I found the best way to use these is to never keep your knees side by side, keep one knee in front, and it is much easier to control and not end up doing splits. If you are in pretty good shape, you won’t have a problem, but if you are out of shape… look for something else. These things really would make a great exercise device to get you ready for skiing!
