Furniture Assembly Tips
1.
Make sure the lock or spring washer is placed between the larger flat washer
and the head of the screw or bolt. Otherwise, it can damage your furniture and/
or lead to unsafe assembly.
2. Only tighten when instructed to do so. Properly aligned all parts, and then use
the appropriate hand tool to tighten. Do not over tighten. If power tools are
used, set at the lowest RPMs/power setting available.
3. When separating parts/components, use caution as to not damage product.
Place the contents on a carpeted or padded area to protect them fromdamage.
Ensure furniture rests on a flat and level surface with each leg evenly touching
the floor.
4. Some furniture includes height adjustment knobs underneath each leg. Turn
clockwise to lower or counter-clockwise to raise each leg.
5. Save the instructions and any supplied tools for later maintenance. After
two weeks, check and tighten any loose hardware. Repeat every six months
thereafter.
6. Any products over 30” of height must be attached to a wall. Serious injury or
death may occur.
