On February 15, 2012, a fiberglass barstool practically exploded as my son sat on it. The fiberglass seat shattered into pieces as the metal bar struck my son buttocks and private body parts. The weight capacity limit was 330 pounds, my son is 218 pounds.

I bought this product from Overstock.com. I immediately contacted Overstock and sent the pictures as per their request. Overstock has yet to get back to me, but I saw that they have marked this product as sold out. The pictures of the seat tell the whole story. I kept the stool and pieces for your inspection.
