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)

Tenderfeet!

I recently purchased four Tenderfeet for a Bryston b135 cubed integrated amp. Unfortunately they were not tall enough for this amp so I ordered the taller Tenderfeet for it. They offered to exchange the standard for the tall, but I decided to try them under an Alan Eaton 45 tube single ended amp that I use in my bedroom. What a shocking revelation. I was already using a Base table that Naim USA sold years ago which has proved excellent with other components. Adding the Tenderfeet was a major quantitative change. The sound was considerably more open and dimensional with soundstage improvements. I know this sounds like hyperbole, but it’s not. Very impressive to say the least.

Tenderfeet

I put 4 tall tenderfeet under my Linn TT. They work as well as the boutique isolation products that cost many times the Tenderfeet's price.

Excellent product & great customer support

I bought the Big Tall Soft Tenderfoot (quantity of 4) for turntable support in the presence of severe macro-vibration / footfall skipping. It immediately solved the problem. Customer support was great as well, as they thoroughly and promptly answered my questions and provided advice before my purchase.

Misleading

I stupidly thought considering the price by ordering 3 I was ordering 3 sets. Instead I received 3. Now. I'll either have to budget $145.00 for another 5 feet to add to the 3 and have 2 sets of 4. Think I'll pass. Now that I have had 3 feet to examine. Finding a equivalent Replacements at a much less expensive price should prove no problem. These are a fine example Emporers New Clothes Syndrome.

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.

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.
