If you look closely, you will see there are NO height adjust holes on this unit. the board can be adjusted to any level along the vertical tubing.

The 35 lb. counter weight allows the board to slide easily up and down. Without it, you would have to support the weight of the board and brackets when you loosen the four knobs that tighten to lock it in place. The weight doesn't move when your punching. It just hangs about two inches off the wall.

You don't have to use the weight, It just makes it fingertip easy to move the board. On my unit, I have a table stand under my board, that I set my CD player on when I hit to music. I raise the weight up and set it on the table to take the weight off the wall. When I adjust the board lower for my wife, I let the weight hang, make the adjustment, then after locking the board at the correct level, I put the weight back on the table to put a little slack in the holding wire.
