What do you get in the box
The Mainstays Asher Springs rocker will have metal frames that are powder-coated to last for a long time in most outdoor weather conditions. The slat frame for seating and X shaped back will have thick cushions to give you comfort for extended seat time.
Each chair will be 27.5 inches wide, 36 inches deep, and 29.4 inches tall. The chair will support up to 250 pounds of weight.
A twin rubber rail is included on the bottom of each rocker to smooth out your chair as it moves. You can use this chair on a surface that is not completely flat, unlike some other rocking chairs. Stops are included on the end of each rocker to prevent the chair from going back too far and tipping over.
Cushions will have an Olefin fabric cover, this is a great material for outdoor furniture. Fabric ties will keep your cushions secure while on your rocker. I would suggest a storage solution for these or any other outdoor cushions to make them last for many seasons.
The simple design of these rocking chairs will get you using them shortly after opening the box. They should be used on a smooth or flat surface to avoid damage to the rockers.
Assembly and care of your rocker
If you have any skills at all, these two chairs should be assembled in less than 1/2 hour. All tools that are required are included in the hardware pack, just an Allen Wrench. Find a surface that you can lay your assembly on, I use the shipping box, while putting these chairs together.
The seat and back are one piece that just requires them to be unfolded. Place an arm on the box and lay the seat, back piece on it and start the four screws. Leave them a little loose until the other are is on. Put the other arm on the box and install the four screws. Put the chair upon its rocker for the final tightening of the screws for the best results. Add cushions and secure the ties. You are ready for a cool drink and a relaxing time.
The proper care of these chairs will be with mild soap and water for most stains and dirt. Do not use any harsh chemicals as they will damage the powder-coated surface on the frames. If your frame does get a scratch, make sure that you repair it with some touchup paint to keep it from starting to rust.
You should find a storage solution for your cushions when not in use, this will give you a longer-lasting set. For some of my storage solutions for cushions and other outdoor things, follow this link.

My final thoughts on this rocker
The simple design, easy assembly and additional comfort from the inserts on the bottom of the rockers, will give you hours of comfortable sitting from the Mainstays Asher Springs patio rocking chair.
The powder-coated frames will last very well in most outdoor weather conditions. The Olefin fabric does well in outdoor weather conditions also. With the ties to hold them in place, you will not have to worry about them in the wind.
I think adding a side table or firepit would be the greatest way to make this a great place to hang out after work with a cool drink and a friend.
