My chair is wobbly. How do I fix it?

When assembling your chairs, please tighten all of the bolts 70% of the way. Before, tightening them all the way, stand the chair upright and apply pressure downward on the seat. While applying pressure downward, have a helping set of hands tighten the bolts to 100% while the legs are in the levelled position.
