The quick connects are used when you need to swap between types of pedals on a frequent basis.
The foot/hand pedals that come with your mini medical pedaller can be used for both hands and feet comfortably. These are suggested if you do want to add the accessories like the Ergonomic Hand Pedals UH-857 and/or the Medical Foot Pedal for Magnetic Trainers DS-763.
Each set will allow for two sets of pedals.
When you want to switch all you need to do is remove the pin and slip in your other handles. This will eliminate the need to screw and unscrew attachments and save wear and tear on the threads.
Quality made tool grade steel.
Switch between 2 sets of pedals/handles in seconds
Eliminates thread damage caused by frequent pedal changing
