I'm looking for a product, how can I find it?
Power-Systems.com offers a variety of methods for finding items on the website. You can browse the catalog by category using the menu that is on the left of most pages on the site. You can also search for keywords using the search box on the left side of most pages.
When searching, be sure to be as specific as possible. For instance, the word "tubing" will return alot more products then the word "ankle tubing" will. Sometimes it may be of benefit to try variations on a term, such as "ankle bands" or "ankle tube".
How do I add products to my Shopping Cart?
Many of our products have different sizes, as well as work best in pairs. For this reason, our product pages don't just have an "Add to Cart" button. Instead, each item on a products general page has a place where you can input the quantity of each item that you want. Clicking any "Add to Cart" button on this page will do the same thing, and any products that you have entered a number into will be added to your cart.
Is my credit card information accessible after my order is placed?
For security reasons we do not keep credit card information on file. This information is needed every time you order.
How do I verify an item is in stock?
