This post shows the seven steps on how to tightened one pair of bar stools.
Step 1: Above fig.l shows a bar stool, determine what is wrong with the bar stool. The stool legs and the rungs were loose. What kind of screws are being used? This stool needed an Allen wrench to tighten all eight screws.
Step 2: Take the bar stool and move it to ta flat surface, a table or even the floor will work fine.

Step 8: There are two rungs on each stool. The rungs are located below the seat near the floor. They help keep the legs in their place. Each rung was tightened using the Allen Wrench.

Step 12: Fig.10 shows the reason why the kitchen stools need to be secured. Below a good friend is working in the kitchen standing on the bar stool now safe.
