How to Dismantle A Bar Stool

28th February 2017

Here at Lakeland Furniture, we like to be as helpful as possible, so here is our guide to taking down your bar stool if you should ever need to!
Typical Gas Lift bar stools are held together by compression joints which can be tricky to pull apart, but not with these easy steps!

Firstly, you will need to remove the seat from the top of the base. This can be done using the same alan key we sent to assemble to stool. Once it has been taken off, store somewhere safe so it does not come to any harm.

Next, turn the stool upside down and hold the central column just above the circular base. Give the protruding end on the other side of the circle a firm tap with a hammer or a rubber mallet. Please take care not to hit the black clip in the center. When this has been done, the central column should slide out easy as pie. If not, a little WD40 will do the trick sprayed into the joint!

Once the base has been removed, turn the stool the right way up and hold the central column between your legs. Take a flat head screw driver or mallet and carefully tap the rip around the orange gas lift button. The footrest column should then slide out. If not, have a go at tapping the other side of the rim.

We find these easy steps the most effective way to remove and dismantle a bar stool without using too much force and using a mallet will minimize damaging the exterior of the stool and keep it in good condition!
