Top critical review
I unscrewed all the screws I had just spent an hour screwing ( with a useless Allen key and spanner combo) and attempted to fit
24 August 2016
I've never been compelled to leave a review for a product before but felt the need to for this particular item. Having read the other reviews I decided to go ahead and order these chairs and thought they really couldn't be that difficult to assemble..... How wrong I was !!
I prepared myself, put all the different lettered screws, washers and bolts into separate envelopes and labelled them all, I did the same with the pieces of furniture, set everything out in the garden, put some music on and got started at 12.15, with a hope of sitting on my sun lounger enjoying the gorgeous weather by around 2pm. It's 5.10pm, it's gone cloudy and I'm finally sat on my new lounger !!
The screw holes on the seat would not line up with the sides, I tried every way I could for over 2 hours and was about to give up and contact Amazon to come and collect the loungers and ask for a refund. I decided to read the other reviews to see if I was making a glaringly obvious error and read one that advised not tightening the screws on the sides before attempting to attach the seat. I unscrewed all the screws I had just spent an hour screwing ( with a useless Allen key and spanner combo) and attempted to fit the seat again ..... Alleluia, success !! Thank goodness for their review. I have successfully constructed the table and one lounger but cannot face the other one. Might leave it for my husband and son to have a go at later on... No doubt tempers will be frayed whilst I sit and watch.
Now that I have completed the assembly of one lounger I will say it's very comfy and does look lovely (from a distance, I know where the flaws are), however that's the only positive, I would never buy an Outsunny product again, I had to get the superglue out and make a few repairs to the plastic rattan that had unravelled before I even got started on assembly.
TIP : DON'T TIGHTEN ANY SCREWS BEFORE YOU FIT THE SEAT
