Comfort Ergo 2-Lever Operator Chair With Fixed Arms : Not as good as expected

Decent office chair, better than expected. Arms are tricky to fit due to the bolts going in at a slight angle.

You get what you pay for not really suitable for long periods.

My husband likes the chair just fine but he finally gave up trying to fit the arms on. It works fine without the arm rests but as soon as we come across someone with more experience putting difficult pieces together, we’ll have them take a look at the chair. The chair has all the comfort of an executive chair without the bulk. I have one exactly like it that i bought over a year ago & still really like it – no problems whatsoever. I gave it four stars because the arms were so difficult to work with. Here are the specifications for the Comfort Ergo 2-Lever Operator Chair With Fixed Arms:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Solid comfortable chair
  • saved my wife’s back
  • Couldn’t fit arms

Easy to put together until you get to the arms. Threaded inserts out of alignment & material covering them, took me 6 minutes to assemble chair & nearly 45 to fit the arms. Plus, the backrest rattles backwards & forwards, it appears that the flimsy metal plate that bolts it to the upright is a poor fit. Seems fairly comfortable though, i guess time will tell.

Arrived day after ordering, standard delivery, only took 10 mins to assemble, nice looking comfy chair, good back support, no problem with castors. Would recommend, impressive.

  1. Good chair but assembly instructions could bebetter. . I bought two of these, the first i assembled as per instructions but found the arms trick to fix. The second, i tested all the screws against the screw holes first. I noticed that the baseplate follows the contours of the seat bottom and that the screws do not go in vertically but are angled slightly towards the outside of the seat. So armed with this info i put the arms on first and then put the rest of the chair together. I found this method much easier. By the way, there are two sets of screw holes, the arms supplied to me would only line up with the outer set. Apart from that the chairs are solid and comfortably.

    1. Good value, good range of adjustments and comfortable but the arms were very hard to attach as the holes for the captive nuts did not line up with the holes in the arms so i had to modify the holes in the arms.

    1. Lovely chair, promptly delivered, but as others have said arms impossible to fit. Box was undamaged and appeared intact but arm fixing screws and washers were loose at bottom of box. All screws the same size where the instructions say there should be 2 short and 4 long, 3 washers missing. Screw holes found to be blocked by adhesive and cover material. The chair was urgently required and is being used without arms rather than going to the hassle and disruption of attempting return and replacement.
