How to adjust height of an old Steelcase chair (454311M)?

By | September 8, 2013

The chairs do not have the pneumatic mechanism to adjust the height of the chair. The height is adjusted by turning the chair in circles around the base. The base post contains a screw mechanism that gives 2-3″ of adjustment.

      Did turning the base work? I am considering purchasing a used one. Thanks

      Hey, I cannot figure out how to increase the height. Can you please explain in detail how you did it? I tried spinning it both direction but nothing happened.
