These bar stools are really pretty cool the way they can be two different heights. They look great & are sturdy. Other reviews talked about the difficulty in putting the stools together so I was a bit leery. But, they weren't bad at all. Definitely helps having a auto screwdriver. If you were using the hex wrench manually, it would take awhile. For me, the only real part that was difficult was if you add the extra extension. Getting the long screws where they need to be was challenging but certainly doable. I would recommend these stools.
