This article will provide instructions for disassembling your Ergatta Lite. You may want to disassemble your rower for transportation. For instructions on repacking your rower reference this article.

  4. Lower the mounting arm then lift the rower into the active position and disconnect the bungee cord from the recoil belt, then lower the rower back into the active position.

  5. Raise the mounting arm and lift the handle from the handle rests and allow it to rest on the forward risers. Loosen both top deck Joint Connector Bolts (JCB's) 1-2 rotations using the 4mm Allen Key. They do not need to be fully removed. Note, there will be no tension in the handle belt at this stage.
