Many feats on RecordSetter involve balancing an object or objects.
The following general criteria apply to all RecordSetter record attempts involving balanced objects:
- no adhesives or glue permitted
- balanced object may not touch other objects, ground or body parts for support
- object must remain balanced in place for duration of the attempt; record setter must have control over the object at all times
- wherever possible, attempts to break balancing records should use objects of the same size and material as the original record
