In the day, everyone had them- the ubiquitous lawn chairs. They were fairly sturdy, lightweight (the legs, etc. were made of aluminum) AND you could purchase repair kits for when the plastic webbing inevitably rotted or was damaged by the sun. There are a lot of other styles but my husband has back/neck issues and the newer types aren't comfortable. I looked all over town for the old-fashioned chairs and couldn't find anything suitable. The chairs that looked like what I wanted were actually for lying propped on the beach. They were built pretty close to the ground. I finally found a couple in Walmart (not my favourite retail outlet but that's another rant.). They aren't made of aluminum any more and are heavier. Still they are a pretty good fit...
The chairs each had a cautionary label affixed which I will quote: "Weight limit 190 lbs. (86.2 kg). Open and close by grasping top of back and front of seat. Keep fingers away from arm adjustment brackets. Place both hands on chair arms when getting in and out of chair. Do not tilt forward or back- always keep both chair legs on the ground. Do not attempt to relocate chair while sitting.". What??? Do they really think someone weighing 250 lbs would think they were a good fit for this chair. Look at it. Opening the lawn chair doesn't need NASA training and if you can't get out of the chair safely, you've had too many wobbly pops. As for not relocating the chair while sitting??? What? You're maybe going to levitate and escape the bonds of gravity?
I hate to sound old but sometimes I do miss the old days when lawn chairs were pretty much self-explanatory and users could manage them without special instructions. Just sayin'
Yes, I'm of a certain age but I'm pretty spry and like to think still smart enough.
