We aim to despatch all orders within 1 working day (Monday-Friday), although in business periods it can take up to 3 working days. We’ll put your handSteady in the post using First Class Royal Mail, which means your handSteady will be sent by priority airmail if airmail is required.

As you may have guessed handSteady is a popular product and our production process can a take a while. We’re working really hard to make as many handSteadys available, but if we become out of stock we’ll let you know on the website and will take your contact details, but not your payment details. In the unlikely event that we’ve taken a payment when we’re out of stock, we’ll email you to ask if you’d like to cancel your order or would be happy to wait until we have handSteady next in stock. It can take weeks to make new handSteady, so it’s worthwhile ordering today, if we have stick, to avoid disappointment.
As an introductory offer we’re providing free worldwide delivery – saving you between £4.50 and £9.50 if you order today. In ordering handSteady you agree to make all arrangements for receiving the goods and if necessary collect the goods from your local post office.
