Instructions are pretty vague but anyone with two brain cells could figure it out alone. That's not the problem. The first issue was that the screw holes in the top part of the chair were COVERED UP by the faux-leather material. I had to cut my own holes (risking damaging the material) for the screws to fit. Other than this setting the chair up is simple.
I was happy when I took a few steps back and admired my handywork. There, sat in front of me, was a chair worthy of my desk. I walked up to it and sat on it.
And I sank. Both metaphorically and literally.
The chair sunk back to the lowest level it could go upon exerting my weight upon it. I stood up, pressed the lever down to bring it back up and sat back down. I sank again. Now, I'm a fairly skinny guy, 21 years old at about 9 stone.
I disassembled everything and started again. Sat on it, sank some more. Obviously the lever controlling the gas canister is touching the button, so upon sitting down it triggers it and DOWN I GO. Can I fix it? I don't know, I did everything as per the instructions and there's no way to increase the gap between the lever and canister. This may be due to the damaged parts that I received (see product picture uploaded).
So, there you have it. A wonderful looking chair that is relatively comfortable. Unfortunately, however, it can't hold anyones weight without dropping down to ground level. And I don't really feel like looking up at my desk from the height of a small child.
After the first few uses you begin to see how badly this chair has been designed; the space in-between the lever and the piston is far too small, any moderate weight will cause it to sink like a stone, and leave you red faced, 2cm off the floor, regretting the day you clicked the 'order' button at the checkout.
The chair itself is very easy to assemble, and I have to admit looks very stylish, and even the leather looks and smells genuine; however the moment you actually come to sit down on it, is the moment your affinity for the product ceases. The chair could not even accommodate my 9 year old step-brother. In the end, I was forced to jam a bolt in-between the metal and the chair in order to increase the gap between the piston and the lever, just to be able to sit on the thing without it sinking to the floor!
Its truly unacceptable that you have to engineer some sort of plan, to overcome the faults of the design, just to be able to perform the most basic act that a chair could offer; to sit on it.
The one and only star I give to this product is because Amazon wont physically let you select an option for zero stars. Truly terrible product, and I don't recommend it at all!
Update :- I took the base plate off the seat and discovered that the lever was touching the plywood base to the seat therefore causing the sinking. I drilled a hole in the plywood to form a recess to alleviate the problem. This was quite a simple task once the problem was identified but should not have been necessary had the chair been designed properly in the first place.
Update:- Even after modification this chair still s(t)inks
Further and final update:- I have now taken this piece of garbage to the tip where it belongs and have bought a vastly superior chair from Ryman for very little more. Do yourself a favour and do not buy this chair.
It was easy to assemble, with or without the instructions - which were not included - and despite initial skepticism, the chair was great for 5 months of use.
Then, all of a sudden, the welding between the base and the chair snaps and I get a headache. It simply broke in two, leaving me sitting on the floor. I dont recommend renewing your computer chair every 5 months or so, so I do not recommend this chair. Reading other reviews (after I bought it), it seems these chairs come with a variety of problems.
It took a lot of effort to assemble the chair because the screw holes didn't match properly on each piece, but we didn't give up and managed to get it together. However, after only a short time sitting on it, the seat went down. He got up and pressed the lever to lift the seat, sat on it and it did the same thing.
We took it apart and realised that the lever positioned on top of the hydrolics was too thick and the seat was pressing on it every time he sat on it. Apart from that the chair was fine. So we decided that by sawing the lever off, it would stop the problem and the chair would remain up.
That worked for a while, but then it happened again. So we sawed off the button of the hydrolics so it wouldn't go down at all. Problem now solved.
But we are now not even 2 months after christmas and the chair is very unstable, it's wobbly, very loose, and not safe to sit on. It leans back and I've had to throw it out.
I should of sent it back when i realised the screws were not aligned properly. It's a false economy. It's a very cheap chair and you don't even get what you pay for. It's caused us a lot agro and problems. Do yourself a favour.... DON'T BUY IT!!!!
