Got My Malibu Pilates- Having a Hard Time Opening the Chair

I normally put together my equipment....stereo, exercise, & televisions. So, I'm not a total yard gnome. {#emotions_dlg.mellow}

The Malibu Pilates arrived REALLY wrapped up with plastic, tape, ties, & do-dads. While I appreciate that, it took me a half hour just to remove all the junk from the machine. Then they put plastic under some bolts around the seat, so I have to tear the plastic around the fastener, because it's bolted down (leaving plastic edges I can't remove). {#emotions_dlg.glare}

So now I'm attempting to just unfold the chair, & it feels like it can't. Am I doing something wrong? I don't want to force it. Did anyone else experience this?

I had the same problem with the plastic but my DH helped so I can't remember there being an issue with unfolding the chair. I think I was confused with the intructions but he just pulled the legs apart. I think the diagram made it seem like it was harder than it was.

I just expected it to unfold like a folding chair would- easily! I keep wondering if I'm missing ANOTHER piece of plastic or tape, & that's what holding it in a locked position.
