    Oh, heck! What do you need those for? There are so many ways of stacking kitchen chairs; they are quite versatile. Or, you can use my patent safe method of using a stepladder. Make sure the surface is flat and firm, tie the ladder off to something if possible, and get someone else to go up it.
    Cheers,

    I had to take the wife to the hospital after she put some books on top of a cheap wire frame chair to change a light bulb. I told her to put a bowling pin on top next time and join the circus. Had an impacted fracture of both the ulna and radius. Guess the ladder was to far away in the pole barn.

    I didn't know wives could change light bulbs.

    Apparently, they can't. Or at least not without serious injury.

    Apparently they can. If I change the light bulb, but my wife brings me the bulb, she always takes partial credit.

    Guilty as charged, your honor. But in my defense, it was a dark parking lot. If only someone would have changed the light bulb...
