We know it sounds a little weird, but 9/10 users feel this well. But no worries, because Sole treadmills come with something known as the Easy Assist Folding deck which is a safety lock. You literally have to pull down the lever under the deck and machine will automatically and slowly, lowering itself down to the ground. No, you won’t get hit by that unless you purposely put your head against it when it is lowering. The safety keys for controls has magnetic device that will not function without it in place.
