The supplied tools are not adequate for assembling these chairs. Don't even try. You will need a straight handle 1/4" driver, a 1/4" socket with a 4mm allen and another one with a 6mm allen. You will also need a 1/4" drive ratchet wrench. If you have these tools, assembly is easy.
I have seen many reviews of the threads being stripped or "Cross-threaded". This is not accurate. The holes are tapped out with a thread pitch that makes it easy to screw the screws in (if you have the proper tools). Unfortunately, this also leaves the screws vulnerable to cross-threading. The key is, if the screw goes in tight for your fingers.....STOP!!! back the screw out and put it in again. ALL of my screws went in by finger 1st, then using a straight handle driver, then final tightening with the ratchet wrench. I put together 12 of these chairs and didn't have a single cross-thread (although I did have to back some out and put them in again straight). Screws don't cross-thread themselves, people cross-thread screws.
