Saw those folding chair blinds a while back and thought it was pretty neat - the chair and blind all in one. So I went ahead and bought one last week. Its suprisingly simple to fold up and put in the carrying bag. Due to it's smaller size it seems like it would actually hold some heat in on cold days.

Me being me, I am half the time not happy with things and I went ahead and did my modifications. If there is one weak link to those folding bag chairs; the thing that usually breaks - it's the rivets. So I drilled them all out one by one and replaced them with 8-32 screws, nylon washers and nylon lock nuts.

So anyone else got one of these? They seem just right. I got it out back airing out real good.

I'm interested in why you choose nylon. I would thought they would be as weak as the cheap rivits.

Silly me. I should have said nylon-insert lock nuts.
