I have been looking for a long time but didn't have a lot to spend and these were a perfect match for the seats on my dining chairs. They were easily assembled. I needed the shorter size, but was impressed that it's simply an extra piece you add or leave out to vary the height instead of some of the less secure ways of adjusting height. I haven't used them much yet, but they seem sturdy and long lasting. I've always had four chairs at my bar and they were always crowded up. Three seems to be a better fit. I've never been disappointed with my overstock purchases (but I do always read what others say and that sometimes helps me decide).
