ASSEMBLY OF BAR STOOLS
Some of our stools, like the Arc Bar Stool and Oasis Bar Stool come readily assembled in a box ready for you to use, but the bulk of those we sell do require some assembly. These stools come either two to a box or as a single, to economise on space for a more fluid delivery and to make them easy to carry. In the event that you order an odd number of stools that usually come in pairs, we will always split the box and repack the stool to a high standard.
Once you have got your bar stool, you may wonder where to begin. Luckily, the stools only come in 4 or 5 parts and are quite easy to fit together, taking mere minutes to set up so you can enjoy your bar stools as soon as possible. Firstly, the seat needs to be screwed onto the stem. In the box should be a small packet of screws with an Allen key. Four screws are used per stool to fasten the stem to the bottom of the seat. We recommend laying the seat upside down on a soft surface to avoid damaging the stool, placing the stem in position, taking care to line up the holes in the stem to those on the seat. When putting the screws in, ensure that they are tight enough so that the stem is secured to the seat, but not so tight that the chrome is being chipped or scratched.
The stem usually has a footrest integrated into the bottom of it, but on occasion, there may be a separate footrest. In this case, there should be a thread machined into the bottom of the stem so the footrest just screws on. Make sure the footrest is on tightly and as far up as it will go.
Many of our items are gas lift bar stools. In this case, remove the gas cylinder from its protective packaging and slot it into the hole on the base. With some stools, there is a cap on the end of the gas cylinder that needs to be removed, and what you should be left with before moving on to the next stage somewhat resembles a small button.
Slip the chrome collar over the gas cylinder, pushing it to the very bottom so it rests on the base. Then, take the stem, with the seat already fastened and place it on top of the gas cylinder, ensuring that they are completely vertical. Once this has been done, we recommend sitting on the stool and activating the lever whilst still sitting on it. This should prime the gas cylinder and the stool will lower. If you now get off and depress the lever again, the stool should rise. It should now be possible to lift and carry the stool by holding the seat.
