Is there a reason why my digital bike scale wouldn't work?

Do you have a picture of what it looks like and how high does it go? I'm guessing if you have a way of hooking it on and it goes up high enough it should work fine

I'm guessing it's a bike scale (weight weenies like to see how much our their bikes and parts weigh). If so, should work fine, they usually go up to about 50 lbs. They are way more accurate than typical mechanic's bearing preload tools.
