How to Fix a "Too Tall" Office Chair Without Buying a New One

If you order online, you would be surprised when you see the item in person for the first time. For instance, you checked out an ergonomic office chair and days later, it arrived on your doorstep. You are shocked to see that it is bigger than you initially thought. But don’t fret; you don’t really have to return the chair and demand for a new one. It’s easy to fix the chair height issue if you get to the root of it.

The first thing every customer does to a new chair is adjusted its height according to their body and their needs. But what happens if the chair is just really too tall for you. What can you do to solve this problem? We discuss it below to help you figure out a solution for your concern.

Understanding What a "Too Tall" Office Chair Means

Understanding What a "Too Tall" Office Chair Means

There is a difference between "too tall" and "too tall but workable." Ask yourself what made you say that it was too tall. Say you are really a short than an average person so it’s not uncommon that standard office chairs are too tall for you. Of course, designers of office chairs based the height range from a person of typical average height and go up from there. There are chances that you won’t fall within this range.

Another possibility is that you weren’t able to adjust the chair to its lowest possible setting. Double check and pull the appropriate lever to lower the gas spring. There are times that you might have simply not adjusted it all the way down. To be sure, read the instructions again and follow them step by step.

Another thing to look at is if there are any obstructions. Your chair might be crashing into something that is preventing it from being lowered down. Again, check and adjust accordingly.
