New Assembly Instructions Page on www.lifetime.com

assembly instructions.JPGAt Lifetime, we're always looking for ways to improve our website to make it easier for you to use.  Most recently, we overhauled how customers access our assembly instructions in the Customer Care section of Lifetime.com.  Why is this a big deal?  Well, Lifetime makes a lot of products, and we're continually finding ways to improve upon them to make them easier to assemble, less expensive, and for various other reasons. When these improvements are made, we have to publish a new version of the assembly instructions for that product.

On the surface, that's not a big deal because the instructions get printed and packaged inside the box with the rest of the parts. But what happens when a customer loses the instructions? In the past, we've only shown one version of the assembly instructions on our website -- which may or may not match the product that a customer has.

Additionally, in the past we simply published a big list of assembly instructions with somewhat cryptic names to try and convey what language those instructions were written in. Combine the number of products that Lifetime makes with several languages, and you can imagine how many instructions that is to sort through just to find the one you're looking for.

But now, with our new assembly instructions page in the Customer Care section of Lifetime.com, all you need to do is type in the model number, product ID, and what language you're looking for, and we can show you the precise set of instructions for your product.  (And, we even show you a diagram of how to find your model number and product ID!)

Not only that, you can also download the PDF or view the instructions inside your web browser, no PDF viewer needed.  So, no more worries if you lose your product instructions even after years of having your Lifetime product, we have them all online for you!

I found your assembly instructions page ... not on your web page, but thru google. I entered required information, i.e., product code / 60021, and ID / 1005425, but got nothing. Nothing to click on except "find this". How in the world are you supposed to get the info ? ? ?

Lifetime Chairs on CSI:NY!
I may not be quite as sharp as the CSI team, but my keen eyes did spot several Lifetime tables and chairs onlast week's CSI:NY "Turbulence" episode! (A rerun BTW.) Some companies pay BIG bucks to get ideal product placement (meaning actually using or showing the product) in movies and TV shows. You know, like how all the American Idol judges have a giant Coca-Cola cup sitting in front of them every show!? But, sometimes, a company is fortunate enough to have its product used just because it is the ideal product for a scene. I'm always watching the background shots of various shows, especially home improvement shows, to see if they use Lifetime tables. Every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of one. But, the foldingtables and chairs in this CSI: NYepisode were pretty hard to miss. Well, for me anyway.You probably wouldn't n...
Table Clips for Lifetime Tables - Two Packs for the Price of One!
Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks. It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them! Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy. Good thing I'm not superstitious. :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting. Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?! And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder to find clips that fit properly. But...
Lifetime Employees Featured on Local Billboard
We all know that smoking is not good for our health. But, sometimes we pick up habits that arent good for us. Well, Id like to tell you about a few Lifetime employees who have taken a huge step to improve their lives by quitting tobacco... and something big that came from it. At Lifetime, we care about our employees' health. As part of our preventive health care programs for employees,a few months ago, we held an internal quit tobacco campaign so Lifetime employees who wanted to quit tobacco could attend Lunch N Learns with the Davis County Health Department. Each week, they would meet to discuss their struggles and ways to help quit tobacco. From this, three of our employees were able tokick their habitandquit smoking! What an accomplishment! Because of their success, Davis County Health Department later approached us askin...
