Assembly was so difficult!!!
on 1 March 2014
I expected this item to be relatively easy to assemble - judging by the photo....wrong!
My wife spent two hours working together to finally assemble it. Reasons -
The delivery package contained a selection of unlabelled sticks
There were no written instructions, just four diagrams. The first I could understand, the second and third were unintelligible, and the fourth showed the final product. No help at all.
We decided that perhaps we could use our commonsense and started to assemble it. The holes provided for the screws were not straight and not big enough so this made the screwing very hard work. (A single mother,trying on her own, would not have succeeded because of the effort required) I had to replace five of the various srews with my own thinner types in order to screw them in.
The result looked unbalanced ....and then I realised that the smaller struts had to match up with the inner legs and the longer with the outer!! Not made clear in the "instructions".
So I then had to dis-assemble and start again.
Finally, after two hours of joint effort and a strain on our marriage, the stand was assembled!
Don't ask me to dis-assemble it and send it back to you! My nerves wouldn't stand it.
