How to Lock Swivel Chair Wheels

This blog post will discuss how to lock swivel chair wheels. Swivel chairs are a great way to get around in an office space, but without locking the wheels, it’s easy for them to move and make noise while you’re working.

This article will show how to lock your swivel chair so that you can enjoy peace during the workday!

 

Steps on Locking Swivel Chair Wheels

Step One: Loosen the bolt on both sides of the swivel chair wheel with an Allen wrench. This is a little hard to do, but you’ll be able to tell when they’re loose because your feet will start being able to push down and lock again.

Step Two: Turn one side clockwise until it’s completely locked in place. We recommend starting with the right side so that if anything goes wrong, you can move back and still have something unlocked for emergencies.

Step Three: Tighten up those bolts! You should feel some resistance as soon as it starts tightening them up – just keep going until there isn’t any more play between how far they turn before stopping versus how much further you can turn them.

Step Four: Turn the opposite side until it’s completely locked in place by following the same steps as you did with how to lock swivel chair wheels on one side.

 

Tips

#1. If your chair is dangerous and you’re thinking about getting rid of it, now might be a good time – while there are still two bolts that hold everything together! There should also be some sort of metal piece or something else heavy at the base of each bolt so that they don’t just unscrew themselves when weight is applied.

#2. Just make sure to do this before trying to move around too much because those bolts will get pretty tight after an hour or so (especially if the last step took a while).

How to Stop Office Chair From Sliding?

Step 1. The office chair can be made stationary by placing a heavyweight, such as pieces of metal or something else heavy at the base of each bolt so that they don’t just unscrew themselves when weight is applied.

Just make sure to do this before trying to move around too much because those bolts will get pretty tight after an hour or so (which is how long it took for the bolts on my chair to get tight).

Step 2. If you don’t want a weight at the base of each bolt, then place one heavyweight on both sides of your office chair. This way, if someone tries to move your stationary chair, they’ll have to work twice as hard- and might not be able to move it.

Step 3. This will not prevent people from pulling the chair out of your way, but at least they’ll have a little more work and might not be able to do it as easily.

Plus if you’re worried about someone moving your stationery office chair while you’re sitting in front of it working on something else (like typing up a blog post on how to lock the wheels of a swivel chair), you can always call for help so someone will come over and keep an eye out.

Step 4. If all else fails, get creative with how you prevent people from tampering with your stationary office chair.

Step 5. You could try putting one foot up against it when no one is around so that it doesn’t roll away. You could also place a chair in front of it to block the swivel wheels from moving outwards.

Step 6. And if you’re really creative, how about trying an egg carton over your stationery office chair’s feet? It might just work!

 

Advantages of Locking Swivel Chair Wheels

#1. Your chair will be much less likely to move around while in use.

#2. It’s a fairly simple solution and it doesn’t require any tools or parts so you won’t have to worry about forgetting how things work if you need to take the wheels off again later on.
