A high quality carrying case is optionally available for the Ohaus Navigator scales. One of our customers asked us if it is possible to use the scale without taking it out of the case.
It is not impossible, but that is not what the carrying case was designed for. To protect the scale, the padding is tightly cut and relatively high. Scales with a rectangular weighing plate could bump on the edge, which will influence the displayed weight:
Ohaus Navigator models with a round weighing plate do not have this problem. However, all scales should be correctly aligned using the integrated level and adjustable feet. To do this, it will usually be necessary to remove them from the case anyway.
