    Hi all,

    I have a very odd, unorthodox question for all of you today. I have a standard computer chair that I use quite a bit, I sit on it while studying, using the computer, etc.

    Recently, it has developed a problem, it reduces in height very quickly. It has a function in which I can choose the height of the chair, and I always like it at the maximum height, but nowadays, it slides down gradually, though definitely. I need to manually raise the height of the chair, about 10 times a day. This is annoying.


    Can anyone give any advice as to stop this?

    Thanks!

    What chair is it? It's likely, by the sounds of things, something just needs tightening. Have a hunt round and see what band supports the chair at maximum height, just use common sense to work out what a period of weight on the chair would mean so you can identify which one is loose. It might be a screw, or it may be a twisty 'knob' of some kind haha, depends on the chair though...
    Alternatively, you will need a new chair and this one has seen its high days. P:
