DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0018] Referring to FIGS. 3 to 6, a first chair adjustment device comprises a control rod 1 and a handle device 3.

[0019] The control rod 1 has two protruded blocks 12.

[0020] The handle device 3 has a hollow shaft 31, a ball-shaped head 313 connected to the hollow shaft 31, a round through aperture 314, an inner groove 315, an inner recess 316, and an end hole 311 communicating with the through aperture 314.

[0021] The inner groove 315 and the inner recess 316 of the handle device 3 receive the protruded blocks 12.

[0022] A cover 32 plugs on the end hole 311 of the handle device 3.

[0023] The control rod 1 is inserted in the handle device 3. The handle device 3 can be moved along the control rod 1.

[0024] The chair adjustment device is disposed on a bottom of a chair seat 2 to adjust a height of the chair seat 2.

[0025] Referring to FIGS. 7 and 8, a second chair adjustment device comprises a control rod 1a and a handle device 3a.

[0026] The control rod 1a has a periphery recess 13a and two blocking ends 131a.

[0027] The handle device 3a has a blind aperture 317a and a threaded hole 310a communicating with the blind aperture 317a.

[0028] The control rod 1a is inserted in the handle device 3a. A bolt 4a passes through the threaded hole 310a of the handle device 3a to fasten the control rod 1a and the handle device 3a together.

[0029] Referring to FIGS. 9 and 10, a third chair adjustment device comprises a rectangular control rod 1b and a handle device 3b.

[0030] The control rod 1b has a periphery groove 14b and two blocking ends 141b.

[0031] The handle device 3b has a rectangular blind aperture 317b and a threaded hole 310b communicating with the blind aperture 317b.

[0032] The control rod 1b is inserted in the handle device 3b. A bolt 4b passes through the threaded hole 310b of the handle device 3b to fasten the control rod 1b and the handle device 3b together.

[0033] Referring to FIGS. 11 and 12, a fourth chair adjustment device comprises a control rod 1c and a handle device 3c.

[0034] The control rod 1c has two protruded blocks 12c.

[0035] The handle device 3c has an aperture 314c, an end groove 316c, and an annular slot 318c.
