Today ,after many months of fighting my old ironing board, which in turn refused to OPEN and then to CLOSE..I went to Argos and purchased a new ironing board.
To commerate this I have the label and ingenious plastic cover tie (you wrap the strings around it).
The instructions sound very complicated to me..I am amazed I ever figured them out.
"OPENING - CLOSING INSTRUCTIONS
Your new board has a multi-position adjustment lever, enabling you to select the most comfortable ironing position.
Commence with the ironing board in the vertical position with the rear leg(s) (ironrest end) on the floor. Hold the middle of the ironing board top with both hands, the left gripping the adjustment lever. Allow the board to tilt forwards, the front leg(s) to touch the floor and release the adjustment lever.
Hold the top in the midle with both hands, gripping the adjustment lever with the left hand. Pull the top rearwards lifting the front leg(s) off the ground until the ironing board is fully closed.
