Purchased this stool specifically for work (hair stylist)to sit at eye level and maneuver the stool easily around my client. The stool came promptly and the assembly was self explanatory even without instruction.
My issue with the design of this stool is that it will not glide freely in any direction without the casters locking up or freezing in the process of moving in any direction other than the direction it's already going causing a potential danger of falling over from abrupt stopping.
Though it is built sturdy the wheels create a potential hazard, in my opinion. The wheels can not be swapped out with other casters due to size of the threading associated with the construction. Needless to say I purchased another stool from another company and this stool will be put aside.
Bottom line, in my opinion from use of this chair, is that it is not safe for my purposes - sitting and maneuvering around on a stool with wheels.
