Zero gravity Chair safety

My 5 year old granddaughter somehow folded herself into my zero gravity chair today. Hurt her leg. I thought I'd pass this on.

I find the chair comfortable enough... just wanted to advise to keep away from kids.

I can see that given the way they fold and the various places limbs can get wedged--especially kids since they are smaller and can fit in more places.

We have had two of them for quite some time now (probably close to 10 years). Love them for relaxing, however they are quite large and I usually can only bring 1 along in the Axis. Sometimes I can bring both if we leave some stuff at home to make room.

We have 2 of them that we travel with. I will definitely keep this in mind when the grandson is with us. Thanks for the head up / warning.

I'm 6-2 and 250 lbs, had one fold up on me. Still not sure how I did that, my wife was laughing to hard to help me!!! Worst part was I had just made a scotch and soda before I sat down, never got a drink! Beware, those things bite, won't sit on one now!!!
