I got this item to replace a vintage 1980s Coleman aluminum folding camp stool that I have been using for years and which finally wore out and broke. So far, it is equally perfect for the job. In order to use it as a gardening stool, I have to cut off the seat and replace it with paracord, widening the seat to 15½". This gets me close enough to the ground to weed comfortably and is a LOT more comfortable to sit in. Mine looks ratty because I just re-used my sun-bleached and garden-stained seat from my last stool, but it looks nice with fresh paracord. The other modification I have had to make is to replace the plastic feet with stainless steel tube caps, which I will do when these feet wear through and fall off. I tried going without feet when this happens, but the tubes will fill with dirt. 1" stainless steel tube caps work perfectly for this stool and are surprisingly durable. I don't know why this item is so inexpensive at Target but I am so happy I found it here!
