Ok, good. Now the seat is where it needs to be. Come around to the back and put the screws back in the back of the seat. Where'd I put my screws, here we go. Now get my little screwdriver, oops sorry. And this is pretty simple, I know you can't see it, but you may have to mess around with this part of the chair in order to get the screws back in the hole that they used to be in. So, if the chair, if the seat is not lining up in this direction, you'll take a clamp and turn it so that it?s at a 90 degree angle. One part will go on the seat and the other will go on the leg and we'll just move this seat over just a little bit until the screw fits.
