Your Complete Guide to Assembling the Herman Miller Aeron Chair With The Lumbar Support
Are you ready to set up your new Aeron chair by Herman Miller? This chair isn't just a stylish addition to your office; it's a commitment to your comfort and well-being. In this guide, we'll break down the setup process into easy-to-follow steps, ensuring you get the most out of your Aeron's ergonomic features.
Starting Off: Unbox with Care
Unpacking Your Chair
First up, let's carefully open the box that your Aeron chair arrived in. Remember to keep all the packaging materials safe, just in case.
Putting the Chair Together
Once everything's out of the box, it's time to put it all together. Don't worry, it's not as tough as it sounds! You'll find four screws on the chair's backrest—take these out for now.
Then, line up the backrest with the seat and screw those bolts back in.
Make sure they're nice and tight so everything feels sturdy.
Usually, the Lumbar Support comes pre-installed. However, if it is not installed for any reason, just slide it in from the bottom to the top.
Now, flip the chair over to install the casters. Simply pop each one in, one at a time.
Adjusting the Backrest
Make Sure It's the Right Size
If the backrest doesn't seem to fit right, double-check that you've got the correct size. Look for dots under the top edge of the backrest:
One dot for small, two for medium, and three for large.
Closing the Gap
Is there a space between the chair's metal frame and the plastic part? That's what's causing the fit issue.
You can push them together with your hands, tap them closer with a rubber hammer,
or use the Diagonal Bolt Trick for a snug fit.
This means you screw in one bolt at one corner, then do the opposite corner, which helps pull everything into alignment.
Now you can easily align the holes to insert the remaining bolts.
Fixing the Seat Height
Stopping the Sinking or Rising
If your chair seems to have a mind of its own, moving up and down when it's not supposed to, there's a simple fix.
Underneath the seat, there's a cover—pop that off to find a pin.
Using a tool like an Allen wrench, give the pin a little twist. You might need to do this a few times, gently tightening or loosening it, to get it just right. Be careful, don't over-tighten! This will stop your chair from playing tricks on you when you sit down or stand up.
The Final Step: Enjoy Your Chair
Check and Relax
After all the tweaks, sit down in your chair and stand up again. If it stays put, you've done it right! Now, put the cover back on, and take a moment to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Your Aeron chair is all set up and ready for hours of comfortable sitting.
