My wife was sitting down on the fold-out chair that we purchased from Wal-Mart Mainstays brand in September 2018, and it collapsed causing her leg injury. The chair is supposedly rated for over 300 lbs. My wife and I are nowhere near the limit. The welds broke on the chair. When I started to check out the reviews and ratings on the walmart.com website, apparently this has been happening quite often to other customers as well.

Walmart would not take the product back or the other 5 chairs that we still have, even though we drove there and tried to return and get some sort of exchange or help. But sadly, to no avail. Someone needs to be held responsible for this.
