Quantity must be 1 or more

Individually molded with a proprietary platinum-cure silicone blend formulated in-house in consultation with Wacker Chemie AG of Germany for maximum micro-vibration absorption. Recommended for audio and video components weighing from 2 to 220 pounds (100kg).

Particularly well-suited for CD/DVD and SACD players, DACs, Blu-ray Players, preamps, power supplies and conditioners, turntables, and power amplifiers. Delivers a full-bodied and quick, highly articulate result with amazing linear extension. Works equally well with solid-state and tube components. Does not "ooze," mar, or discolor surfaces. A thin decoupling grungebuster Dot is adhered to the base of each Tenderfoot (Extra-Firm version has black grungebuster Dot).

Two versions available:

TenderSoft: for components weighing 40 pounds or less (18kg)

Extra-Firm: for components of virtually any weight up to 220 pounds (100kg).

Dimensions: 1.1" x 1.1" x .65" tall. (28mm x 16.5mm). Default recommendation: four Tenderfoot isolation feet per component.

Though scarcely ever really needed, pressure-sensitive adhesive is an available option.


Big Tall Tenderfoot: Same as above except molded extra tall to lift components free of tall factory feet. Also great for turntables having severe footfall or other macro-vibrational issues. Superior upgrade for AR, Thorens, and VPI suspension springs.

Dimensions: 1.18" x 1.18" x 1.02" tall. (30mm x 30mm x 25.9mm)

Tall Tenderfeet, soft

My tuner, which sits on a wooden cabinet top, causes mechanical hum but not electrical. So I borrowed some regular soft tenderfeet from the adjacent amplifier, put them under the tuner so the factory feet didn't touch, and that seemed to significantly help. So I bought the new ones, however they didn't help that mechanical hum. Then I tried them under the amp, instead of the older soft ones, not the tall ones, and that made a considerable improvement in dynamics and detail. The amp is not heavy, about 15 lbs. Gotta experiment...I'm happy with the results.

Excellent service, as usual.

Once again I had a fine customer service experience with HAL, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. The Tenderfeet remain arguably one of the best values in vibration control.

TENDERFOOTS were a nice tweak

Simple and cost effective isolation tweak

Replaced Symposium roller blocks

I thought that I liked Symposium Roller Blocks under my SACD player on my Solid Tech Rack of Silence, but thought I'd try the Tenderfeet since there is a great money back guarantee if I didn't like the sound. It was immediately obvious that the Tenderfoot allowed more bass and lower mids to come through, and reduced the sharp and edgy highs that the roller blocks were adding. I guess that's the difference between coupling and decoupling. I am keeping the Tenderfeet because the music sounds more realistic, natural, and easy to spend hours listening. The Rollerblocks will be repurposed to a second system.

Not Subtle - An immediate improvement

Bought the tenderfeet for under USB DDC and DAC, bought the gliders (bronze) to put under spiked speakers. Wow! Lower noise floor, less smear, more air. Great results and value.

Outstanding

Yes, they work. Thought my system was pretty sorted for isolation and vibration control, but tenderfeet under CD player, pre and power amp made a big difference. Less smear, more poise, more detail. Good value even when cost of importing to UK taken into consideration.

Worked a treat under my CD Player

Not a universal cure, but they worked surprisingly well under my CD player, making them an incredibly good value. Herbies service great as always.

Last SQ tweak, best value, so worthwhile

After experiencing consistent improved SQ upgrading components, cables, interconnects, power cables and conditioner, I installed threaded stud gliders and one set of Tenderfoot isolators last month. Back for more Tenderfoot isolators this month having experienced improved sound quality. Yes, a testimonial, but based in reality. Very pleased. Easily the best value ever in audio.

Simple and Effective Upgrade

I’m using these under my turntable and the difference is noticeable. The bass is clear and tight, and in general I’m hearing more clarity and less distortion.

Fantastic Tweet

I purchased 4 feet and put them under my Rega Brio Amplifier. I wish I could put into words effectively the startling improvement it has made. I am hearing my system in ways I have never heard before and just want to play my whole collection of Cd's. It has got me excited about music again and I find myself listening more to the "performance" rather than just the recording.

Best bang for the buck ever

Tenderfeet made a noticeable improvement on my DAC and CD transport so I’m buying some more.
