Good chairs

Pros: good price, good looking
Cons: assembly anoying
"I got 6 of these I like them. They look nice and the price is good. I could not make myself spend 1-2k on patio furniture. There were no ratings the day I purchased but saw them before delivery so i was concerned. Just go slow and work the allen key slowly as they wear out very quickly before a single chair is installed. You need to follow the steps in the not so good install guide and it will work."

Don't Buy This Chair!!

"ThIs chair is impossible to assemble. Almost half the screws wouldn't turn in the holes, by hand or with the tool provided, and because the holes are turned aluminum strip easily if forced. We brought the chairs to our boat access only cottage so of course made the extra effort to assemble them. We are handy people and couldn't get the job done. Do yourself a favor, don't buy this chair!"

great deal

Pros: great value
Cons: cheap allen key tool included
"I never write reviews, but after ordering these chairs and then reading all the reviews I was very worried! all the reviews say they "ThIs chair is impossible to assemble: this is 100% not true! the chairs went together no problem, the problem was the allen key (the tool they include) we happened to have a set of good allen keys, but they are a couple dollars to buy, took us 5 min and no frustration to build these chairs, however the reviews did cause me 2 days of worry hahaha.."

Exactly as advertised and a very good buy.

Pros: great unique look., very reasonable price.
Cons: parts such as screws and washers are cheap., assembly instructions are not very good.
"They look great and feel great to sit in. They are a little bit lower than I expected. (lower than an Adirondack chair). The screws and washers are cheap as mentioned by others. The assembly was not difficult at all even though you do have to line up the pieces exactly. It's a good thing that there are just a few screws to the assembly because the instructions are weak at best. In the end, a great, very different looking product for a reasonable price."

Nightmare assembly

Pros: comfortable and stylish
Cons: assembly is horrible....manufacturer should redo.
"It takes two people to assemble these chairs and you will also need a drill and your own nuts and bolts to put these together. They do look good when completed and are comfy to sit on. I don't think the included cushions are waterproof though. They look like a foam cushion with a canvas sort of material on it."

Painful assembly!!!!!

Pros: looks and comfort
Cons: frustrating assembly and quality of hardware
"I bought 4 of these chairs and assembled 2 of them today. You would not want to be around the frustration fed profanity… These should have been a very easy to assemble but are not, and I am a pretty handy gal (Assembled a barbeque with 10x more parts with not a problem…). They look good once put together, and are quite comfortable, though lower than expected. I am however concerned about their life span, based on the quality of parts… I kept wishing on making the one who designed it (particularly the length of the 3 longer screws) assemble these chairs alone as form of punishment (min 3 sets)…
Assembly hints: - may want to get a solid set of Allen keys… I made it through with these provided but it was painful… Also do it wearing gloves, your hands will be grateful. Good Luck!!!
First of all the instructions are very poor, but you need to make sure you follow them closely.
Step 1 – the most frustrating part of this assembly, uses the 3 long screws, they should be ¼” longer, it would have made this SOOOO much easier. Be patient because this one is the most painful step. Make sure you have something spread under the chair as you would be retrieving these screws many times before you are lucky enough to catch the tread of the back rest… (I did not use the spring washer to gain some length on the screw). DO NOT tighten these screws, as you need the back rest flexible for the remaining assembly.
Step 2 – the arm rests. Use the two black short screws. They show the double washer here. This one is easy enough. Just make sure that the two metal plates for the front leg assembly are facing inside, and are behind the front wall of the seat. Again do not tighten the screws.
Step 3 – You are left with 4 shorter screws. Make sure you align the bracket with the holes in the chair seat. As these are the last screws, you may tighten them as first, than tighten the short black ones and finally the three holding the back rest.
