Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove your iron from the board, along with anything else you may have sitting on the surface.

  2. 2

    Stand the ironing board up on its end, with the pointed end sticking up in the air and the flat end sitting on the floor. Have the ironing board legs facing you.

  3. 3

    Look under your ironing board on the bottom surface. You will see a lever that looks like the letter L. Push this lever in, away from the bend in the L. This will release the latch that locks the legs in place.

  4. 4

    Push the bottom of the legs toward the board. The scissors-type hinge in the middle of the legs will allow the legs to collapse against the underside of the board.
