Unless you buy used or pick up a chair from a store that offers free assembly you are more likely going to end up stuck putting them together from time to time. This is the case with DXRacer as well, especially considering they have to ship the chair too you. After I pulled everything out of our extremely large box I pulled the instructions out and compared everything to make sure I wasn’t missing any parts. I had a little bit of a scare thinking I was missing the bolts listed, but it turns out DXRacer pre-installs them into the chair for you.
With everything ready to go I started with the 5 point base. Installing the five caster wheels was as simple as pushing the peg into the hole. Next I put it on the floor and snapped all five of the orange foot rests into place as well. Next I just had to sit the hydraulic piston in the hole in the base and our base was good to go.
Up until now I hadn’t even had to deal with a screw or a bolt, but the next step was installing the lean assembly to the underside of the chair. To do this I had to bolt it down using the allen wrench that DXRacer included in the box. With this installed I just had to sit the chair base on the hydraulic piston and the M-Series was starting to finally look like a chair. All that was left to do on the main assembly was to install the seat back onto the seat base. Doing this by myself required a little work to line things up but once I did installing the four bolts was easy. Once tightened up I just had to install the plastic covers using two screws and the allen wrench that had a screwdriver end on it.
I kind of covered the installation of the head and lumbar support pillows in the previous section. I found installing and removing the head pillow to be extremely simple with its Velcro design. The lumbar support pillow on the other hand was a little harder to install. You have to pull the pad on the chair back out and run the strap around it. The back pad doesn’t detach at the bottom or the top so you have a very limited amount of space to be able to run your arm around the back to strap it down. Once installed it was easy to move the lumbar support up and down to get the location just right.
