If you are planning on moving your office chair and don’t know how to disassemble it, don’t worry! You aren’t alone. It’s not that hard to do at all.
What You Need To Know About Office Chairs
Like most people, you spend a lot of time sitting in your office chair. But if your chair is starting to feel a little too comfortable, or if it’s time for an upgrade, it might be time to disassemble your chair. Here are the basics on how to do it:
Locate the screws that hold the seat and back together. There are likely two or three of these screws in each section. If there are more than three screws, use a Phillips head screwdriver to unscrew them.
Once all the screws are removed, carefully pull off the seat cushion and backrest. If there’s any padding attached, remove that as well. You’ll now have a metal frame and fabric covering.
To keep the frame looking new and fresh, you can clean it with a cloth and a mild soap solution – no harsh chemicals needed! Just make sure to dry it thoroughly before re-assembly.
How to Disassemble Your Office Chair
If you have an old or broken office chair, it may be time to take it apart and get to the parts that need repair or replacement. Follow these steps to disassemble your chair:
- Remove the arms from the chair by unscrewing the bolts.
- Remove the backrest by pulling down the straps that connect it to the chair frame.
- Disconnect the cables that control the seat’s height, tilt, and swivel.
- Take off the cushion by loosening its screws and removing it from the chair frame.
- Unplug any wires attached to the chair mechanism, such as those for adjusting back support and arm height.
- Pry off any covers over screws or bolts with a screwdriver or a knife blade.
- Replace any parts that need fixing or replacing, such as springs, bearings, and screws.
How to Assemble Your Office Chair
There are a few things to consider if you’re in the market for an office chair. The chair’s height, cushioning, and the material that makes up the chair can all affect your work experience.
To assemble your new chair, follow these simple steps:
Place the back of the chair onto the seat pad. Make sure that the back curve matches that of the seat pad. Match both sides exactly. Hold on to either end of the back and pull up until both are flush against each other.
Put one armrest on top of one side of the back. Make sure it’s level with both sides of the back and sits centered within its opening. Again, hold on to either end and push down until it snaps into place.
Place one armrest on top of its matching side on the front of the chair. It should be lined up with openings in both armrests so they can open and close together (if desired). Push down until it snaps into place.
Flip over so that you have a seated position facing backward. Align buttons along both sides so they line up with slots in each armrest (or vice versa if you choose to have them face opposite directions). Push down firmly on each button until it clicks into place (again, be sure not to pinch your fingers!).
If you have ever wanted to disassemble your office chair, it is not as difficult as you might think. The first step is to remove the bolts that hold the chair together. Once these are removed, you can tilt and pull the chair apart.
Be careful when doing this, as there may be sharp edges on the chair’s metal parts. Once the chair is apart, you can clean it and put it back together in a different configuration if desired.
