But do not forget that a UVI Chair is like a baby! If you want the chair to stay in top shape and form you will need to give him some additional attention.
After buying a UVI Chair the first thing you need to do is to assemble the chair. If you need any additional help to be sure to check out our assembly guides. After you have assembled the chair it is ready for use, but in a week or two, we suggest you do a check-up on your chair.
Here is what you should do:
- Start by turning your chair around on its head and check if the mechanism and armrest’s screws are fully tight. It is common that after 10-14 days after the assembly of the chair that the screws will get a bit loose since the material will extend a bit.
- Turn your chair back around and cautiously remove the caps on both sides. After you have done that check if the side screws are fully tight and if they are not, make sure to tighten them up!
- After you have done that your chair should be back to TOP shape! We suggest you do the same quick check-up every few months or whenever you get a feeling that things are not as stable as they should be!
Now your UVI Chair should be strong and stable enough to take on any challenge!
Over time you might start to notice a squeaking sound coming from UVI Chair whenever you lean back or move around. Do not worry – there is nothing wrong with your chair! The reason why this happens is due to several factors. Some UVI Chairs use Butterfly Mechanism and, unlike Multi-functional Mechanism, the Butterfly mechanism has an open mechanism. This means that the mechanism is exposed to dust. And more often than not, some of it will get inside the mechanism and you will start hearing the noise. AGAIN, do not worry, there is a super easy fix for this:
1) Go to the store and buy WD-40 or any other product that does the same job. We also suggest that you get some paper towels – they are not a necessity, but we highly suggest using them to prevent any unwanted drops of WD-40 on the floor.
2) Now you have everything you need to get rid of the squeaking noise! Start by turning your chair around on its head. Take WD-40 in one hand and paper towels in another. Spray a bit of WD-40 right into the mechanism as shown in the picture below.
