Good chair, back height adjustment odd

My family has a 10 year history with office chairs, starting with ergonomics problems which led to discomfort for several of us (spend a lot of time in front of our computers).

After checking every chair in every office store in town, found this one on sale at Staples. Bought two more over the next 3 weeks.

Assembly was straightforward and really did require only the included tool. Took maybe 20 minutes, at a leisurely and double check everything pace.

Adjustment of the first one was a bit of a challenge. We've all had 4-adjustment chairs before, so know and expect the routine. But this is a strange one: the chair bottom and mechanism design assumes a back which simply has a long metal plate going down, where the back is just lifted to the desired height and the knob at the back of the base tightened. But that's not how the chair was delivered. The back has a short metal plate to go in the socket, with a plastic pin to go in a hole so the back can't be lifted and set using the knob in the base.

Instead, there's a second knob on the back, behind the lumbar support. The back has an internal mechanism which allows it to be lifted by click stops (adjust in half inch increments, not precisely which is what should be done). The mechanism was hard to figure out, and not shown in the instructions at all. (turn the knob to either side to release, center it precisely and then move the back up and down until it clicks into place). We finally got the back to click at a position slightly below what was needed, then pulled the plastic pin out and used the base adjustment to move the back up, slightly, to the desired position. (please use common sense, there are really unsafe things you could do along these lines)

I think this is a failed back design for a much more expensive chair, paired with the base of a different more expensive chair. To me, it was a quality product I could afford while paying college bills, and that says a lot. Or maybe I just wasn't very smart figuring out how it was supposed to work.

I bought this chair because it was adjustable in several different ways, has good lumbar support, and was on sale. The first day I assembled it, sat down and leaned back, I felt the mesh on the back start to give. It was held to the frame with hidden staples! I haven't had time to take it back, and now about 7" of the back mesh is unattached to the frame of the chair. I know I can return it, but then I have to assemble a new one all over again. I have Fair Trade on it, which I believe will give me back my purchase price, and then I have to hope I can buy it on sale again, or I have to pay more to get the same chair. I really like everything else about it, but not the way the back mesh is coming apart.

Comments about Staples Carder™ Mesh Task Chair, Black:

Purchased this chair 2 weeks ago. Thus far I am very satisfied with it. It was easy to assemble and is very comfortable. The chair has several adjustments which makes it very comfortable. Time will tell on the serviceability and integrity of this product. So far so good!!!

Mesh Task Chair

Comments about Staples Carder™ Mesh Task Chair, Black:

We were looking for a nice chair that had back support, that would not break the bank and found the Staples Carder. What a great bargin. It was on sale for $99.00. I picked one up at the store, and our employee is very satisfied. He really likes how the chair sits and is also pleased with the lombar support. Of course, once news traveled about his new chair, we had others comment on how old there chair is and that they are in dire need of a new chair as well. So, today we had to place an order for two more chairs. I would highly recommend this chair to others.

Good... if you can get it assembled

By Joe

Comments about Staples Carder™ Mesh Task Chair, Black:

I'd rate this chair higher, if not for having to use a file to ream out the holes in the seat plate (part number 5). Something went wrong at the factory with either the welding up of this part, or the placement of the receiving holes in the seat base. It was flat-out impossible to assemble without modification. I had to take off somewhere around 1/16" or 2mm or material before the bolts were able to go in at an angle where they'd actually engage the threads of the receivers without cross-threading everything.

Also, the provided allen wrench is woefully inadequate to perform the assembly, due to the huge amount of threadlock pre-dabbed on the bolts. The flat hex heads are 12mm, but with semi-rounded off corners, even using a socket set was difficult. I ended up securing these bolts with an allen wrench bit in a 1/4" socket.

If you are considering buying this chair, do yourself a favor and either:
1. Spend the ten bucks to have the store put it together for you
2. Be prepared to do some modifications and use more tools than provided
3. Hope you purchase one that isn't so poorly aligned and slathered in threadlock
4. Just pick something else

Best bang for the buck

By El Paso Crone

Comments about Staples Carder™ Mesh Task Chair, Black:

First, the plastic is thick and sturdy. The chair is heavy and not easily tipped over (I tested it). The fabric on the seat is mesh-covered to keep your fanny cool and heavily padded for comfort. The back is comfy and cool with excellent and adjustable lumbar support. Putting the thing together was a dream. It took less than 20 minutes, used only the tool provided and (this is what really impressed me) the packaging of the small parts was individual by step number. Each and every screw and connector was in a separate small plastic bag and marked by Step and part number. So easy. Even the bags were connected so as not to be easily lost and they could be ripped off when ready to use. The arms are adjustable both up/down and in/out to give your fanny more room. The seat tilts back or forward, up and down and the back adjusts up/down and in/out. Lastly the lumbar support has an adjustment as well. I can only imagine that the individual who complained about the back coming off didn't follow all the directions and missed installing the part E that keeps that from happening. This chair is one of the most amazing chairs I have had the privilege of sitting in in the past 40 years of working in desk chairs. purchased more of this brand, slightly less expensive, for my entire office. Well worth the full price, and getting it on sale was a gift.

Great on Staples Carderr Mesh Task Chair

Comments about Staples Carder™ Mesh Task Chair, Black:

My son picked it out after sitting on a number of chairs in the back of the building. He wound up up liking a termapitic (sic) chair that was listed at $299. We agreed to check out selections at other stores before making purchase. As we were walking out my son noticed four other chairs off to the side of the front of the building. The four chairs were on sale. We decided to try them out. I had resigned myself to going to another store. Much to my surprise, my son loved the chair more than the higher price version he had picked out. The chair was listed at $199 but had a sale reduction of $100. The chair at $99 was better than the two chairs he picked at $299. He's happy (hard to do for a 17 year old) and I and my wallet are happy too!
