Zero Gravity Chair FAQ

1. How do I set up the Zero Gravity Chair?

When you take it out of the box, it’s already in the collapsible/ folded position. First, check to make sure the locking mechanism under the front part of the arm rest is in the “down” position, and if necessary, loosen the tension screw on the inside part of the locking  mechanism if they are too tight (scroll down below to question 5 for the troubleshooting guide).

Next, Hold the back frame and the front of the arm rest, and start pulling them away from each other. Once you start to see the legs open up on the bottom, you should start pushing the arm rests down until the legs are full extended and the lounger is in the upright position. Set up the pillow by following the instructions.  You’re now ready to sit in your lounger.


2. How do I set up the pillow?

The pillow has 2 eyelets at the end of the straps that are attached to each side. You should have also received a short bungee cord that may still be in the box or in the area you opened your lounger for the first time. Thread bungee cord through eyelet of the pillow on one side. Release the head of the bungee cord so the metal ends rest flat against the eyelets of the pillow. Wrap the pillow with the bungee around the sides of the back and thread the bungee through the other side of the pillow like you did the first. Finally, adjust the pillow to a comfortable position and enjoy.


3. How do I recline on the Anti-gravity Recliner?

Once you’re sitting on the lounger, put your feet on the foot rest bar and gently push out with your legs while holding the armrests with your hands and pushing away from you at the same time. The chair should start to recline and you can lock in position at any reclining angle.


4. How do I lock the reclining position into place?

Underneath both armrests, there are locking mechanisms that allow you to lock yourself into any reclining position. Lift the tabs on both sides to the “Up” position to lock the chair into a reclining position.


5. When I lock the chair into a reclining position, the chair is slipping back to the upright position, how do I prevent that?

Our locking mechanism has our patented “Tension control system” that allows you to tighten the lock so that you can increase or loosen the tension of the lock. In this case, you would need to tighten the inside screw on each side until you feel the tension is right.

6. How do I put the chair back into the upright position?

First, unlock the tabs on both sides located under the front part of the armrest. Next, push down with your legs while pulling the armrest with your hands, towards you.


7. How do I clean the material?


Use mild soap and brush or sponge. Brush lightly until dirt or stain is removed and rinse with cold water.
