Now, I could not gave a giveaway with out demonstrating what you will receive. So last night, best bud and I assembled the jump rope (all you have to do is stick the rope through the handles). She was kind enough to photograph the evidence. The counter on the jump rope really works and it did not require me to put in a battery. Also, I am 5'10 and the rope was plenty long enough for me.
I assembled one side, best bud did the other. I left one end a little long and after jumping a few times, this is what the handle looked like. Once best bud fixed it (by shortening it a bit) it worked perfectly. I can easily screw things up. I am sure you will assemble this just fine.
