What do I need to assemble a dinette set?
Every dinette is shipped to you with the necessary hardware you need to assemble each set, along with easy to follow instructions.
The only thing not included is a Phillips-head screwdriver. You will need the screwdriver to attach the seats to the chair frames.
Each chair comes partially assembled. In most instances, the chair back is in one complete piece and the front legs are in one piece. In that case, you only need to attach the chair back and front leg section to each other and then screw on the seats.
If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to contact customer service and we will be happy to walk you through the process.

We recommend using the boxes we shipped the set in as protection so that you do not scratch either the tabletop or your floor while you are assembling the set.
Before you fully tighten the screws on the chair:
- make sure you haven't made any mistakes by checking that the chair looks the same as it is in the picture on instructions and on site
- level the chair by gently putting weight on the chair while it is on the floor so that all four chair legs touch the ground. This will make sure your new chairs do not wobble.
It may also be helpful to lay out all the pieces of the hardware first to help align each piece with the diagram in the instructions and to be sure you are using the correct hardware.
