There is a long screw that attaches each metal seat support bar to the round base. These screws act like an axel... but only sort of. The hole in the bar for the axle/screws is actually about a 1.5 inch slot. When the seat is in the collapsed position, it fully opens by pulling each support bar about a 70 degree angle... but once it's at this angle, the support bar will slide a little bit into the round swivel base (hence the slotted screw holes).
From the open position, it seems that the proper way to collapse the seat is to SLIDE or PULL each metal seat support bar out of the round swivel base about an inch or so. It will not just rotate first. It must be pulled out to clear the plastic lip and allow it to swivel.
There were no instructions showing how to collapse or open the seat... and while normally it would seem that something as simple as a folding chair does not need instructions, in this case the sliding mechanism is completely internal and undetectable until the device is taken apart. It's also not a natural motion that you would expect for this seat. Both my wife and I thought that clearly the bars should just swing back to the collapsed position.
After attempting to close it, we finally did think they maybe they pulled out first. But in our case, the fit was so tight that we just simply could not get the bars to slide or rotate back out. Loosening screws did not help at all.
I also noticed that when the seat was open, the swivel base was still a very tight fit and did not swivel at all.Read more ›
The bad - Closing the darn thing up again. Once you sit in it and your weight settles it is hard to close up the seat part again. In fact, i was unable to close it so it will not fit in the little carry bag it came in. I am 6'1 195, so not sure why this would be an issue.
I purchased this stool for a platform deer stand I have in a grouping of trees. It has held up well being kept out in the elements, and the squirrels haven't seen fit to chew it to pieces yet, which they have done to every chair or cushion that I've left out in the past.The adjustable legs are great for uneven ground, giving you a level seat when you need one.
My main problem with the stool is that the legs flop around when you pick it up, and the noise is unwanted in a hunting situation, and hunters should be aware of this. The little buttons to make the adjustments on each leg are not simply made, and are darn near impossible without taking off gloves.
Makes a great camp stool, though.
