What you get in the box
In the box you will get four chairs and a fire pit. The chairs will have a steel frame that has a gentle rocking motion, not a full rocker. You will sit on an overstuffed cushion and have a smaller stuffed cushion for your back. Each chair will be 29.5 inches deep, 26.5 inches wide and 34.5 inches tall. They will weigh about 30 pounds each.
The fire pit is powered by a 20 pound propane tank that is secured with a small chain under the burn area. The square burn area is filled with lava rocks that will cover the round burner. This produces no downward heat so it can be set on any surface, just have to watch that no combustibles are above the flame or within about 24 inches of the sides. The fire pit is 40 inches square and 23.5 inches tall. It will weigh about 118 pounds without propane tank.
Assembly and use
The chairs only require the base to be attached to the seat. The biggest problem is getting all of the parts aligned, you should have some help with this as it can be frustrating with only two hands. Tools are included for the bolts and nuts. Follow instructions closely as some parts will fit backwards and make your chair unsafe. The longer legs go to the back of the chair and the U plates must go in the proper location. Foot caps are provided to keep chair from sliding and marking up your floor surface.
The fire pit will require two people for the same reason as the chairs. Four bolts hold the stone table top to the base. Burn ring and burner pan is attached to the base from the factory. Add your lava rocks as to not cover the igniter so your fire will start. Place 20 pound propane tank in place, hook up feed hose and secure with chain. Igniter will need one AAA battery installed. The side door attaches by sliding it onto four pegs on the base.
To light your fire pit, open the side door, turn on propane, push in control knob after moving to the on position and then push the igniter button. If all is well you should have a flame, just use the control knob to adjust the flame to your liking. Now just sit back and enjoy a little heat, a romancing flame and some of your favorite adult beverages.
Safety, storage, cleaning and other information
With any gas appliance, you should make sure that your connections are secure and not leaking before lighting. Watch small children while playing around fire pit, even after it is turned off. Do not sit any combustibles on the stone top when burning.
When storing any propane fire pit inside, make sure the propane tank is disconnected and left outside. Store lava rocks out of freezing temps as the freezing moisture will cause them to crack and break.
Clean chairs with a mild soap and water. Clean the burner with a brush when cool if flame does not work well.
