I like to come from this direction and line the seat up with the holes. Again, you might have to just monkey with it and get it lined up. In this case, I'm going to use a clamp to pull that front together a little bit because it doesn't want to go in the hole, but old chairs are going to be like this. It probably will not want to go back together precisely the way it was when you took it apart. But as long as it?s flat, it?s going to be ok. Just pull that end a little bit. We got a little bit more to move it, almost there. There we go. Like I said, this takes a little bit of patience and jockeying around. Having a little bit of a problem getting this one lined up so I?ve got to put our clamp back on. Pull it in just a little bit, you'll have to look up underneath it. That looks better. There we go.
