How many resistance levels does it have to choose from?
Honestly....I guess in some ways, it is unlimited. It's not like a "Level 1" and "Level 2" etc etc. It has a knob on the front that turns a screw. And the screw moves the spring closer to and farther away from the knob. If the spring is retracted all the way toward the handle, it is super easy. Approx 4kg of resistance. And if it's all the way toward the knob, it is super tough to squeeze. I can squeeze it all the way. But I've got to bear down and push a fart to get it to close. It's about 40kg of resistance. Just turn the knob until you find a resistance that is tough, but still possible and work it until it becomes easy. Then move it up a little bit. That's about as good as I can explain it.

I have arthritis in my fingers and also trigger finger. Does this hand exerciser also strengthen individual fingers?
Only in the sense of the whole hand, including fingers, getting stronger. It does not exercise fingers individually like some the devices that have a trumpet-like set of keys for each finger.

Wonder if anyone has found a better replacement spring at home depot, lowes, or even graingers?
I have not looked for a replacement spring, and I have not needed one.

It says "kids" on the title. Is this really for kids, or can a grown man use it just fine?
Since this product is adjustable, it is fine for a grown man to use. I have no idea why they would say 'kids' on the title, though perhaps at it lowest adjustment an older child could use it, but using it myself it is definitely fine for an adult.

Does it works well for my forearm?
I don't really feel anything in my forearm when I use it, although I'm sure it has some benefit. It's great however for strengthening grip and the wrist.

I received this hand gripper and the tension is way too light! anyone else have the same experience?
It is very tight on mine! Not the same experience here.

Is it relatively quiet? I work in a quiet office and this would be nice to use in my leisure however I do not want to annoy people!
The only noise it makes is a small plastic-on-plastic 'clack' when the handles touch.

How does this device hold up over time?Has anyone experienced any loss in the resistance?
I've only on this product for two weeks now but it's pretty solid. As much as you can expect from silicone and plastic if you're looking for super durable product just keep in mind that it's made out of plastic. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and it is great because it has a range of weight.
