A friend was over for Thanksgiving dinner and was sitting on a wooden folding chair when he noticed the chair he was sitting on started to give way below him. He weighs below 200 lbs. On closer inspection the wood around the bolt holding the legs together completely split away from the bolt. This is only the second time which these chairs have been used.

I brought the broken chair back to the store and told them what happened. I still have 3 of the other chairs like it and am afraid someone else will get seriously hurt sitting on them..
