As well as an excellent on line tutorial on the Vertagear website, the SL4000 comes with a set of image based IKEA style instructions to guide you through the assembly process. The first job is to attach the tilt and lift mechanism to the seat base. To do this it's first necessary to remove the four hex bolts from the base before positioning the mechanism in place above the now vacant holes. We found that things didn't line up as well as we'd have liked, and at one point were worried that the final bolt would not go in. A bit of jiggling and swearing saw it finally in place though.
The next job is to insert the gas piston mechanism that supplies the energy to raise and lower the seat height. With this done the chair can be turned over ready for the squab to be attached.
Attaching the seat squab to the base via the protruding arms is probably the hardest part of the assembly process and is best done with a bit of help from a friend, as getting everything lined up and held in place whilst simultaneously starting threads and tightening bolts is quite demanding.
