Magline built the Glyde with high-quality parts throughout the system. To ensure a long and safe life, a weekly inspection is recommended. The inspector should check tread wear, tread tension, all bolts connecting extension mechanism to frame, braking, both gas springs, and frame and baseplate should be checked for cracks.
