No straining or lifting is necessary to extend or retract the legs on Ventry® Fans, as demonstrated by Joan in videos taken when she was 9-months pregnant. In these videos, she set up / deploys the ppv fan and then retracts the legs for storage.
Joan is a wimp. If she can operate the fans gracefully, anyone can!
How to set up the fan
The day before Joan’s second (and final) child was born in August 2014, Sara took a couple videos of her setting up a 24-inch Ventry Fan.
