    Standard vs High mount flip-up footrest

    Can someone explain the difference between a Standard and High mount flip-up footrest?

    Thanks Chas. I should have been more explicit, because I had already looked at the CAD drawings. I mean what is the difference in a practical way. Why would anyone want high mount footrests instead of just standard?

    Short legs. Or legs of different lengths.

    Thanks Katja. That is definitely not the case with my long legged Dutch man. It does explain why the footrests we got with a used TiLite are so short. I just ordered long extensions for them, and hope they will be somewhat workable on a backup chair.
