Comfort Ergo 2-Lever Operator Chair With Fixed Arms : Disappointing condition

Great chair – everyone is very happy with it.

Slightly disappointed about this chair. Slightly disappointed about this chair. From the very first day start making irritating noise from lifting unit.

3 bolts per armrest using the supplied allen key. The 5 castors are push fit to the base. The riser mechanism slots into the base. The plastic sleeve slips over the riser mechanism. The seat slips onto the top of the riser mechanism. The chair back slots into the rear of the seat. Adjust the height of the chair back and tighten the large knob. Raise the rear lever to adjust the angle of the back rest and push the lever down to lock it in position. Here are the specifications for the Comfort Ergo 2-Lever Operator Chair With Fixed Arms:

  • Back rest height and tilt adjustment infinitely lockable in any position
  • Gas seat height adjustment
  • Strong nylon 5 star base with twin wheel hooded castors and a 25 stone (154Kg) BIFMA tested gas lift.
  • Fixed position arm rests offer additional user comfort. Delivered flat packed for easy self assembly.
  • Dimensions, Seat Height 455 to 570mm, Seat Depth 470mm, Seat Width 490mm, Back Height (Adjustable) 510 to 595mm, Back Width 460mm, Overall Width Across Arms 595mm, Arm Height From Floor 620 to 735mm.

After assembly which very easy found this chair to be stable, solid feel, easy to operate, in other words a little gem for the price. If i had any criticism to make it would be that assembly instructions are not clear when connecting the chair back to the seat as the rubber cup should be first pulled over the metal receiver on the seat , this is not shown on the instruction sheet but common sense should prevail and should not deter any prospective purchaser.

Item came very quickly and the chair was assembled in 5 minutes, however the arms are a different matter and after 2 hours i thought i had got a reasonable result although not totally stable. This is because the bolts are not long enough to keep a good purchase so the first time i lent on an arm the bolts popped out. Do not buy the chair with the arms. It is comfortable but would be better with decent arms.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Disappointing condition
  • Easy to assemble and comfortable
  • Buy the one without the arms

Well made, comfortable as a computer chair, and not too expensive. It is a chair – what more can i say about it?.

I would have liked to have given this a better review but i can’t given the following:* it didn’t look new. It was packed haphazardly with the box lid re-taped. * the screws and washers were rolling around in the bottom of the box. Fortunately (by luck?) none missing. * one of the arm retaining nuts barely had a thread in it. * the arm screws lined up only with a heck of a lot of difficulty, and at very strange angles. * the base is scuffed as if this chair had already been used. Having struggled for 45 minutes i did finally get it assembled (i needed the chair immediately so returning it was only a last resort). Now assembled the chair is comfortable and feels supportive.

    I hope you have a good workshop. . There is a village somewhere without its idiot, as he/she has been employed by this company with the sole job of placing the arm locating bolt nuts. The arms have two positions, inner and outer, if you wish to have them in the inner the best of luck with that. After much fiddling i could only get two of the three bolts to line up with their imbedded nuts and then the bolts were too short. It is fortunate that i have quite an extensive workshop and found some of the correct length. Seeing the number of adverse comments about this i would have thought the company would get this point sorted, but is seems not. The chair, apart from this, is of good quality, but i would look elsewhere.

    The chair is comfortable and seems well constructed. The chair is comfortable and seems well constructed. I agree with the other reviews regarding the fixed arms – they are very tricky to fit, slightly longer bolts would have helped. Would have given 5 stars had there not been problems attaching the arms.

    I have back problems and have no trouble sitting on it for long periods while i’m working. It’s strong and the adjustments have a decent range. The only problem is that the arms are not adjustable and are set a couple of inches too low for me to rest my elbows on, but since i’m working at a desk anyway, that’s neither here nor there.

  8. Be prepared for a bit of work. . The chair is good value, it seems to be both comfortable and sound. The main problem with this char was the attachment of the arms. I had read that there were some problems in this matter and i called the supplier to make sure that the alignment was good. Despite my call the chair when it arrived had not been checked for alignment and it took the better part of two hours to get it put together, even then i had to contact the supplier and although they were sorry for the lack of inspection, they suggested that the unit would be ok with just two screws on each arm. I took their advice and the chair seems to be holding well. I would think long and hard about the work required to put the chair together. The video does not tell the whole story.

    It’s really comfortable as others have said but i’m pretty sure these are the wrong arms or something because the bolt holes don’t line up. I managed to get it reasonably stable with only two bolts. I would give it a lower rating but it really is comfortable and it’s nice to have the arms. It’s just a real pity the manufacturer didn’t take more time getting the arms right.

    1. Buy the one without the arms. As others have already noted. The arms do not fit correctly. Each one is fixed with 3 bolts but only 2 bolts can be fitted and the third is way out of position. So the arms end up being wobbly. The back and base cushions are well padded and comfortable so my advice is. Buy the one without arms and save yourself some money and a headache.

    1. The comfort and usability of the chair is fine. Unfortunately we were unable to fix the arms. The comfort and usability of the chair is fine. Unfortunately we were unable to fix the arms to the base of the chair as the holes in the base did not meet with those in the arms. A refund for the cost of the arms was provided with no question, and we are now using the chairs perfectly well without the arms.
