The height of the chair is adjusted by shortening or lengthening the metal chain between the front and back metal rungs of chair legs, the chain is secured by a single metal pin. A padded vinyl headrest is attached to the back of the seat and adjusted by turning the tensioned knob and manually lifting the headrest up or down using the wooden knob. The back of the chair is reclined manually by way of the metal pin on either side of the backrest being slotted into the premade slots along the interior of each armrest. The foot rest hooks onto the lower metal rung of the chair.
