Revive Your Revolving Chair with Jobel Hardware

Revive Your Revolving Chair

Is your trusty office throne feeling a bit wobbly? Does that once-smooth swivel now sound like a rusty swing set? Before you resign your comfy chair to the scrap heap, consider a DIY repair!  Here at Jobel Hardware, we're all about saving money and keeping good furniture out of landfills. So, let's tackle how to Revive Your Revolving Chair and get you spinning smoothly again.

Diagnosing the Problem:

  • Loss of Lift:  Does your chair sink like a stone? The culprit is likely a worn-out gas lift cylinder. This is the long metal tube that allows you to adjust your seat height.

  • Squeaking Symphony:  Those annoying squeaks can originate from loose screws, worn-out casters, or a dry lift mechanism.

  • Wobbly Woes:  A wobbly chair is a safety hazard! Check for loose screws at the base and around the armrests.

Tools You'll Need:

  • Screwdriver set (Phillips and flathead)

  • Wrench set (adjustable or specific sizes depending on your chair)

  • Lubricating oil (WD-40 or similar)

  • Replacement parts (gas lift cylinder, casters, etc.) - We have a great selection at Jobel Hardware!

Fixing the Funk:

  1. Lift Off:  For most repairs, you'll need to detach the seat from the base. Consult your chair's manual or contact Jobel General Hardware for a change

  2. Tighten Up:  Use your screwdrivers and wrenches to address any loose screws or bolts.

  3. Silence the Squeaks:  Apply a light coat of lubricant to any metal components that might be rubbing together.

  4. Replace and Revive:  For worn-out parts like the gas lift cylinder or casters, simply remove the old one and install the new one following the manufacturer's instructions .
