You couldn’t wait for that new gaming chair or office chair to arrive so you could spend hours in blissful comfort. What went wrong? We think we know why: you don’t know where to start putting the chair together.
We’ve all been there. Do-it-yourself projects and putting things together always seem easier until you have to do them, and sometimes the instructions aren’t that clear.
If you want to do something, there’s always a way to do it. Get rid of that bad manual and keep reading to learn how to put together your office or gaming chair quickly. All you need is a wrench and a little bit of organization.
Unboxing! Unpack and lay out the chair’s supplies.
The first thing you have to do on your quest is pretty easy. Carefully open the box and put all the items in front of you on the floor. In the end, this will help ensure that you have everything you need in front of you and that you don’t miss any parts when putting the thing together.
When putting together furniture, it’s a no-brainer to keep everything in order because one lost piece could ruin everything.
Once you’ve done this, grab your almost useless instruction manual and make sure you have all the parts you need to put together your office chair or gaming chair.
If you find that some parts are missing, don’t be afraid to call the manufacturer or send the gaming chair or office chair back to get a replacement.
Arrange the pieces, so they’re easy to locate.
Once you’ve found all of the gaming chair parts and taken off the plastic covers, you’ll need to organize them, so you know where they are when you need them in the future.
Most of the time, the first thing you need to do when putting together a gaming or office chair is to get to the bottom of the seat, which you then have to work to set up.
It would help if you also gave yourself a lot of room to work in so you don’t lose any parts, and other things don’t get in your way.
The next step is to connect the bottom to the main chair’s mechanism. Then, use the four screw-head bolts with the gaming chair to attach the mechanism to the seat.
When you bolt, you should make sure to bolt the chair tightly. This main connection will carry almost all of your weight, so it must be as strong as possible. After doing this, you can slide the chair back onto the mechanism.
This is pretty easy to do—all you have to do is hold the chair upside down, making it easier to slide it onto the mechanism.
Use the bolts with your kit to connect all the pieces. If you need to, you can also attach the armrests.
So now is the time to show off your 12mm open-end wrench. Make sure you use the bolts with your kit to put each piece together the way the instructions say. When you’re done, put the armrests into the holes on the underside of the chair.
Put the wheels on the base of the 5-star chair.
Here, all you have to do is connect the chair’s wheels to the five-pointed base. Sometimes, you may need to use a lot of force to get the casters to fit over the plastic socket bracers. When everything is in the right place, you will hear a click.
Connect the chair’s gas spring to the chair.
At this point, you need to put the gas strut cover over the gas strut. Then, place the gas strut on the chair’s five-star base. Then you can hook up the chair’s mechanism to the gas strut on the five-star base. If you still have trouble, you can look online for videos that show how to put your gaming chair together.
Place the headrest and backrest in place.
This step might not be needed if your office chair or gaming chair doesn’t have a headrest or backrest. If you have a headrest and backrest that can be taken off, you will need to put the attachments on the chair. When you’re done, you’ll need to try out how the headrest and backrest work and consider whether they’re in the right places.
Can the Assembly Be Accelerated?
Yes, is the short answer. Make sure you have a lot of space so you can organize the parts well and make sure you have everything you need. If you realize you don’t have the tool you need, you’ll have to go to a hardware store, which will make your job ten times harder. Have a plan!
So, that’s all you need to know about putting together a chair for the office or a game. Not too tricky, huh? Even if it’s a little too hard for you, don’t worry because many stores offer a service to put together furniture.
