Also, do you see small metal filings falling out of the hole, or adhering to the bolt?
I did notice that some flakes were coming out when I was trying to screw them in.
They were orange in color and that's the shade that was painted on the end of the screw.

All right, off to get a longer bolt from the hardware store, some duct tape, and the other type of allen wrench!

Will report back shortly

ok. after watching your video and looking at the pics, I think i have a better idea of whats going on here.


I think the bolt has split in half and the other half of the bolt is still stuck in the threading in your back rest, which would explain the constant turning and the lack of threading.

this happens due to crappy bolt material and you putting too much weight on the left arm rest more so than the right arm rest.

to confirm my theory. unscrew the other side and compare lengths of the bolts.

and if i am right. duct tape is your only friend for a quick fix.

All right, I got the duct tape but I also learned that the inner bit of the chair is actually stripped and might need a die (at least that's what the hardware guys told me).


Unfortunately, in order to get the screw to compare them, I had to pop it out and now things are even worse than before.

EDIT:They are both not the exact same height.

EDIT:

wait theyre not the same height?

how much in length is missing?


hmm. i see.. well don't sue me for physiotherapy fee's from sitting on that mess for prolonged periods of time! (good thing i live in another country)

yeah. a die would be required to remake the threading inside your chair.

yeah. a die would be required to remake the threading inside your chair.
I also looked down into the inside of the chair and there are bits of the screws stuck in there as well

You sure not not thinking about a tap?

You'll probably need to tap the hole to the next larger size and screw in the appropriate connector (screw, bolt, whatever).

How would I go about doing that?
