Not anyway safely. The telescoping mechanism is shot, replace it before someone gets hurt.

Why doesn't chair remain at desired height?

Depends on the chair, weight and where you're sitting in it. Some chairs are made for big & tall: Big and Tall Office Chairs Discount Big Tall Chairs For Sale Online

If you weigh a certain amount it will lower the chair much quicker than if you were much lighter. This could be due to muscle mass or you're just an all around big boned person.

The chair will not hold it height after raising. Is there an adjustment that can be made to hold the desired height

Gas lift chairs are made to automatically lock in the position they have been raised to, sounds like your chair is faulty.

The repairman for our vendor figured out, as he was about to replace some mechanisms so our Boss B9431 chairs would tilt, that they were not broken! While flipping down the paddle on the left can lock the chair in a particular angle, once you've tilted it, it will not tilt IF the height adjustment lever on the right is PUSHED IN towards the chair, locking out the capability of tilting. You have to gently pull the height lever away from the chair, sliding 0.5 or 0.7 inches, to activate the tilt ability. This may be the case with other models, or may not.

How do you turn the high chair into booster seat?

I went to the site for this product, and from what I can see from the pictures posted there,
1. You keep the base of the seat strapped into the kitchen chair,
2. You remove the cloth/padded liner that you would use for a baby,
3. You adjust the angle of the inner seat so the toddler will be sitting in an upright position, and
4. You remove the tray and push the chair up to the table.
This should make the high chair the right height so the toddler can eat from a dish placed on the table.

I hope this helped you!gwings.jpg

How do you raise the metro to make it sit higher off the floor? Is it adjustable

This mnaual wheelchair has dual position rear axles and caster forks to allow seat to floor height changes with no additional components. What this means is that the wheelchair is adjustable in height based upon the position of the front caster wheel axles and rear wheel axles. Raising the axles lowers the chair. Lowering the axle postion raises the chair. If the rear axles of the rear wheels are in the top position you can lower the wheels and raise the chair. Likewise, if the caster axles of the front wheels are in the top hole of the fork then put the wheels and axles in the lower hole to raise the chair. It is easy to accomplish this with basic tools.
If the front and rear wheels are already in the lower holes (the chair is in its highest position) you have another option. This option is a more expensive way to raise the chair by buying 4 new wheels. Lets say for example you have 24" diameter rear wheels. If you purchase new 26" diameter wheels you will raise the chair 1". If you have 6" casters and put on 8" casters this raises the chair 1" in the front. Hope this helps.
