I have tried and tried to get it to drop me. Specifically lifting the seat while trying to apply seated pressure. I have tried keeping the seat lifted while taking a seat, I've tried pulling and yanking and twisting and turning, tucking my legs under while standing from a seated position, timing the lifting and sitting motion as inappropriately for safe use as possible and I cannot get the chair to drop while I'm seated, taking a seat, or standing from sitting. I read some product reviews on websites saying the new chair was less easy to lift and reposition height than the reviewer's old chair.
I have many times read that this chair can dump it's user. So if anyone has recently purchased a Starbound to replace an older one, maybe you can confirm if they tightened up the quick adjustment feature to correct this issue.
It is an absolutely fantastic, lightweight, and essential accessory for me that comes with the caveat of potentially being risky for the user. If they have modified the chair to correct this I'd like it to be on the record. As far as my opinion goes, it does not seem likely to drop me to the ground ever and I regard the Starbound chair as very safe for anyone to use.
