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 ? ? ?
