How to adjust a Hekman Office Chair.

Hekman Office chairs offer various levels of seat height adjustments and seat back reclining or tip positions.

To adjust the seat back reclining or tip position:

  • The chair ships in the maximum reclined, full-tip position
  • The recline position knob is located under the seat on the right hand side as you are seated in the chair
  • The best way to adjust the recline position knob MAY BE to turn the chair upside down to easily reach the knob
  • NOTE: It will take about 12 to 14 full revolutions to reach the minimum reclined, least-tilt position
  • HINT: By placing a small piece of tape on one edge of the knob you can better count the number of full revolutions you are turning the knob
  1. There is a lever on the left side of the chair (when seated in the chair) that must be pulled out to allow the chair to tip
  2. To decrease the amount of tip, turn the knob 7 or 8 full revolutions then sit in the chair and test the amount of recline or tip
  3. Make adjustments clockwise for less tip and counter clockwise for more tip
  4. Push in the lever (from step #1) to lock the chair from tipping

How to adjust the seat height:

  1. There is a lever on the right side of the chair (when seated in the chair) that must be pulled up to lower or raise the seat
