How do I get my chair to tilt?

If you are sitting in your chair and it is "Locked", please follow these steps. If your seat plate has one handle:                                                                                                                                                   

Step one: sit in the chair, and grasp the handle with your right hand. Pull the handle away from the chair (It will come out about an inch), and recline.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Step two: If the chair is unlocked,  but is still not reclining, reach under the seat cushion, and turn the knob to the right to loosen the tension. This should allow your chair to lean back.                                                                                                                                                     

If your seat plate has two handles: Step one: make sure the handle on the left is pulled out away from the chair (It will come out about an inch). Try to lean back.  If this does not solve the problem, please follow step two above.
