    Kevin, do you know where I can purchase a new set up to make it adjustable again. I received a used ZRA and noticed that the cap screws were missing as I was setting the chair to my settings. Any help from anyone would be appreciated, Jakeyboy, you listening ? mark

    Provided that the wedges are still up in the frame somewhere, you will need this size cap screw (1 3/4" long may also work)...

    I have done this to my chair. It's a bit tricky but can be done.

    1.You lossen the Allen screw and pull it out.

    2.Next get a mallet and hit the footrest downward. This will dislodge the wedge from the clamp (you need to do this because the wedge is sitting on the clamp and hitting against (upwards) will further tighten.

    3.If you feel that the wedge is still stuck, use the Allen screw and tap on it but make sure you screw one rotation to guard the wedge thread.

    4.Once the footrest, clamp and wedge is out from the frame, reassemble the clamps on both the wedge and push it into the frame to your desired length.

    5.Once done lock it with the Allen screw.

    Yes! Do it this way, do not hit the screws! If you hit too hard, you'll strip it like I did :/

    TiLite instructions say to hit the screw head, but several users have damaged their chairs doing that, so they tried an alternate method: removing the screws and hitting the footrest. If you choose hit-the-screw method, loosen the screws, and tap the screw into the downtube. If you choose hit-the-footrest method, remove the screws, and tap the footrest out of the downtube.

    Either method should work, but if you remove the screws and hit the footrest, you'll need to take it all the way out to reassemble the wedges and screws.

    I should have access to a video camera in several weeks. If you haven't succeeded by then, let me know, and I'll shoot a video.
