Bar stools. Saturday , April 22nd , 2017 - 14:27:37 PM
The most important for a family in this busy era is a place where kids can do their home works with the supervision of their parents, while chatting in a nearby place. And because of some space consuming sofas are not that good and would probably cost you that much for a single item, it might lead you to choose stools instead.
Many major chain stores now offer bar stools. While most are very nice looking and affordable, many are RTA. The following link from the Consumer Product Safety Commission contains just one example of the consequences purchasing this type of stool may pose:
You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are "RTA" or "Ready to Assemble". This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt's threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.
