To install style #18650 swivel and glider, there must be a minimum of 6" space for the glider (under) inside the chair bottom. Chair sides can be up to 34" in width.
The installer must provide 2 pieces of 3/4" thick by 3 1/2" wide hardwood installed securely front to back to attach the 2 glider flat steel plates.

Glider Installation tips
Installation is accomplished by attaching a 1"x hardwood (Hard Maple or Oak is recommended) to each steel rail flat and then attaching the 1"x to the chair side bottom edge.
Although 8-1" #14 mounting screws are included for some installations, we recommend piloting for included 8-#8 x 1 3/4" wood screws when screwing into edge of other than real solid wood.
Another installation method is to install two 1x's from front to back inside of the chair between the two sides. Then the chair with the installed 1x's can REST on the 2 glider attachment steel plates and be permanently screwed.
"White Wood", Plywood, or Particle board is not a recommended 1x as it can be too springy, break or crack in use.
