I'm in total agreement with all of the reviews here... This ironing board is unstable to the point of being dangerous (moving clothes on the 'grippy' cover moves the board so much that the iron comes close to falling off)
For such an expensive board - you would have thought they would have worked this out.
Do Not Buy!
I bought this yesterday and I was very excited as I thought hills had a great reputation. It was over $100 and said it was a 'premium' ironing board. I unwrapped it tonight and set up ready to iron and its SO WOBBLY. I have placed it in the car to return it tomorrow and will have to do tonight's ironing on my trusty old board.

Absolute waste of money
I don't usually write reviews, but after purchasing this product, I felt I had to get online and let others know what to expect before they hand over their hard-earned cash. This is marketed as a premium product (it even has the word 'Premium' in the model name!) which is priced around $129, so you'd expect a higher level of quality than a budget ironing board. Prepare for disappointment.
I purchased at Bunnings, got home and unwrapped the plastic. It wobbled and moved around like a poorly-set panna cotta. The entire frame and legs flexed...around and would not stay straight. Every touch made it wobble. I actually thought that the factory had forgotten to tighten the screws so grabbed the screwdriver in search of loose screws to take care of. But there were no loose screws, everything was correctly tightened. The problem is a very poorly designed and built product which Hills should be ashamed of. I took it back to Bunnings, they checked it and agreed it shouldn't be wobbling like that. and they suggested I take another one. I grabbed another one, but I insisted to on unwrapping it and testing it before leaving the store. Exactly the same problem. The customer service rep actually said he can't believe Bunnings is selling this and said even the $20 ironing boards were far more stable. So my money was refunded and another brand purchased. So if you're wondering if the bamboo model is better built than some of the wobbly metal models (judging from the reviews on this site) the answer is a resounding 'NO'.
