The carbon footprint of this chair is approximately 12.437 kg of CO2-eq. while that of its 4 poles represents only 0.4 kg of CO2. The disposal of this chair would be equivalent to driving 112 km or leaving an incandescent bulb on for almost 25 days!

In order to reduce this footprint, Decathlon recommends that you repair the product yourself or take it to the workshop of your local store.

This chair is guaranteed against possible manufacturing defects. When under warranty, we are liable for the repair work: you can bring your chair directly to the workshop of your Decathlon store.

REPAIRING A BROKEN POLE, INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

1. Put on protective gloves and goggles.

2. Remove the broken pole from its sheath by levering it out with a flat-head screwdriver.

3. Remove the plastic protective caps with pliers and set them aside as they will be reused later.

4. Take the new pole and, using the coloured marker, draw a line:

   - 55 cm from the edge if you are preparing the backrest pole.

   - 38 cm from the edge if you are preparing the seat pole.

5. So that you don't break the pole when cutting it, wrap the pole with adhesive tape at the mark.

6. For greater accuracy, draw another line 55 or 38 cm from the edge using the marker.

7. Saw at the mark with the hacksaw.

8. Remove the adhesive tape and put the caps back on the new pole with the pliers.

9. Put this new pole in the sheath of the chair by levering it again with the screwdriver.

10. Test the strength and the correct placement of your repair work.
