How can I fix a cast iron wood bench from rim rack from side to side?

I have tightened all screws for each slat of wood including brackets underneath to secure the wood to the iron, but I cannot sit on it as it sways.

Thanks, C.

    Can you post a picture of the bench? (just add a link to a sharing site like imgur.com and someone with enough rep will add it for you). Any solution will depend entirely on the design of the bench. – fixer1234 Jul 24 '17 at 4:15
