Our boards were making some terrible noises and our divers were complaining that the fulcrum wouldn’t turn. Some divers were migrating to their “favorite” board and standing in a long line to wait their turn. I knew there was only one thing to do…have The Fulcrum Guy come out!
Larry flew all the way to San Diego to work our fulcrums and stands. We have two 1-meter and two 3-meter boards on concrete stands. Larry completely replaced the fulcrum parts, re-built all eight hinges, re-aligned and re-leveled all four of our stands. I’m sure our boards are now the best diving equipment on the west coast! They are smooth and quiet and divers love our facility. They can use any board in our facility and they are all perfect!
I was impressed that Larry traveled with all his tools and equipment. He had everything needed for the job…tools, parts, cleaning equipment, etc. Larry scheduled his work with our Aquatics Director and did not impose on any of our programs…top to bottom, a true professional.
Thank you Larry…

I take pride in having personally maintained our diving equipment at LSU over the years. We invested in the professional services of The Fulcrum Guy this year because I wanted a top to bottom rebuild of our diving equipment including re-drilling and resetting the stands. I CANNOT BELIEVE how smooth, quiet and level our boards now are. Our first day back in the water all of my athletes commented on how good the boards felt! Thank you Larry for your excellent and professional services!

Larry May is the guy you need to call to fix and maintain your diving boards. He and his staff came to Clemson and had to reinstall all 4 of our diving boards. This is a very difficult process to figure out how to fix what someone else had previously created. Larry and his staff were able to figure out how to perfectly reinstall all of the diving boards in a very timely manner. Larry is professional, efficient, and works very hard to make your diving equipment a perfect “10” by the time he leaves your facility. He has the specific knowledge to fix all of your diving equipment problems. In the past, I used to maintain our diving boards every year. After seeing Larry at work, I will always call upon him to keep our equipment in top condition. Our diving boards have never been better! Our Tiger Divers are loving our new diving boards, thanks to Larry May!

“We just had the Fulcrum Guy in to service all of our boards at the University of Kentucky and the divers are saying that the boards are smoother and more stable than they have ever been. We are very pleased with the service that Larry performed.”

"The diving boards at West Virginia University are better than ever, thanks to the Fulcrum Guy! This season he and his staff replaced two 3M boards and installed two 1M short stands on concrete pedestals. The Fulcrum Guy did an excellent job installing the boards. The divers and I are very thankful for the quality of work!"

Thank you so much for the exceptional work you did at our facility last weekend. The work was very professionally done and I really appreciated how thorough you were, right down to post-work clean up and documentation. Our boards are working better than ever before and they sound great too. The divers are suitably impressed
We look forward to working with you much more in the future.

Here at the University of Georgia we run a high level diving program and host a lot of high level diving competitions. It is ultra important to keep the facility up to date and safe. Having the “Fulcrum Guy” come in a service my equipment was a huge success. He provided great service and replaced all the fulcrum parts on all of my four springboards. He also showed me how to maintain the fulcrums and how to make minor adjustments, the proper way. Replacing all the parts instead of buying new stands saved me thousands of dollars. I am very please with the results and would not hesitate to recommend or use him again.

"The Fulcrum Guy did a fantastic job replacing the fulcrums and getting our boards in prime condition. They are efficient, and extremely professional. Their costs are very reasonable considering that you have basically have a brand new fulcrum built under your board. I would not recommend anyone else. They are the best."

That is fantastic what you have done! I am so thankful that these boards are so very quiet. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

You and I have been friends for a long time. Over the years I have struggled to keep diving equipment in tip top shape. I have conducted a lot of the maintenance myself, but each time it just never went back together exactly the way I thought. When I started to coach at PENN this year, the boards were a mess. The stands rattled, the hinges were loud and they really needed help. I sent a request to the “Fulcrum Guy” and asked him to make the problems go away. The results are unbelievable. The stands are like new. They are tight, they are quiet – day one the kids thought we had installed brand new equipment. It is unbelievable the change in the equipment. It is certainly the best money I ever spent. Thanks and I will certainly be recommending you to everyone I know.

"Larry installed our new board and stand and re-built an existing stand that was in bad shape. Above and beyond the incredible work he did, throughout the process from bid to installation Larry educated myself and our diving coach and was accessible anytime we had a question or concern. He also provided us with maintenance schedules and offered to be a resource for us into the future. The Fulcrum Guy was affordable and flexible to all of our needs. Larry is a knowledgeable professional and the BEST I've worked with in this field."

"Larry May contracted the job to be done on a specific date for my one and three meter boards. He was was right on schedule and he and his assistant performed a great transformation. Fulcrums were pulled completely apart, parts were replaced as necessary, and all work was tested. My boards now perform like new. Everything is aligned, working easily and well, and the quiet of the boards is real easy on the ears and mind. Yea for the Fulcrum Guy!!!"

The purpose of this letter is to commend you and your company for the outstanding service you provided for the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. As you know, our aquatic facility, built in 1976, is a source of pride for our school and our district. The service and upgrades to our two diving boards, hinges, and fulcrums provided by your company has restored our diving venue back to top notch condition at a reasonable cost. I was very pleased that the service and parts that were clearly stated in writing were provided and completed as specified by you and your company. Once again, thank you for your professional service.

After hearing through the grapevine that "the fuclcrum guy" could fix any problem, I decided to give him a call. Larry quickly came to my facility, replaced fulcrums and parts and restored our boards to optimum performance. He was true to his word and was very affordable. Thank you.

It was great to have you up to Northeastern to help get our diving well ready for our competition season. Your meticulous attention to detail to make sure everything was completed correctly, and operating properly was greatly appreciated. The extra time you took to answer questions, explain the work you were doing and show me how to keep my equipment operating at highly competitive level was greatly appreciated. Thank you for making yourself available to answer my additional questions I did not think of while you were here. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future.
"As most Head Swimming Coaches, I don't know much about diving. When I asked my diving coach what I could do to help the program she said upgrade our boards. She gave me Larry’s (the Fulcrum Guy) name and number to contact. Larry worked great with our administration in providing all the necessary information and description of the work needed. Larry's work was very thorough and complete. Explaining all that was done, provided maintenance schedules and information, and even discussed what could be done on our own to lower the cost. His prices and estimates were very competitive. I know our divers will enjoy the boards and I will because they aren't loud anymore."

"I wanted knowledge and experience, so I went to the Fulcrum Guy. Getting the job done right in a cost effective manner with someone I trust. That made this decision very easy!!"
Head Diving Coach
Our facility is seven years old and hosts many college meets as well as Invitational’s and the High School State Championships. I started having concerns when our diving equipment became noisy and didn’t sound right. The Fulcrum Guy came out and rebuilt the Fulcrums on all 4 boards. Larry even spent time with our maintenance department so they could properly maintain the equipment on a day to day basis. Money well spent to protect our investment.
Aquatic Coordinator & Event Operations
"Our fulcrums were in really rough shape; our young kids could not turn them without help and our college kids struggled as well. I contacted The Fulcrum Guy, he showed up on time and in less than a day he had our fulcrums functioning better than ever. Larry also spent the time to show me how to properly care for our boards and he also gave me other ideas to help me improve my facility. He guarantees his work and he makes sure you are completely satisfied. Well worth the money and I would hire him again!"

Thank you for working with me through this process. Everyone was pleased to see the diving board in beautiful working condition after you were here on Sunday. I will be in touch with you if we decide to go with annual inspection to help with our piece of mind. Once again thank you for your time and expertise.

I was waiting until we had practice with some of our older divers to get their reaction to the work that you did on our boards. The verdict is in and both boards feel great!

I inspected the boards over this weekend and they sound and look great. BTW our dive coordinator and coach were very thankful and feel we now have the best operating boards around because of this”.

Thank you for your email and for the attachments. It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday! I was impressed with the service you provided on our Aquatic Center diving boards and appreciate your meticulous inspection of our equipment. Thank you for explaining all the work you recommended at the beginning of the service, and then walking me through the maintenance schedule and pointing out all the work that was completed at the end. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated! I look forward to working with you on an annual basis.
