I ordered 2 pair of these stools because I live over an hour away from away major retail store. The stools were OK for the price but needed assembly. The holes for the screws were not always in alignment and the hex wrench that came with the 2 stools was stripped before I had finished getting the first stool assembled! Also, needed strong muscles than mine to tighten the screws so the stools didn't wobble. My son did this for me when he came home.
