Repairing or fixing bar stool swivels having a broken plastic race, or a swivel in which the bearings are falling out, or loose and wobbly cannot be done. It must be replaced.
Other reasons for replacement
Removal is not difficult. It is only to remove the screws or bolts from the swivel plates. Some swivel chairs or stools have an round access hole in which to insert a screwdriver to remove the fastener. Others will require that the swivel is 1/4 turned so that a fastener can be accessed.
The most difficult part is determining whether it is Flat or Tilted.
The plate size is not too important, but the mounting screw hole pattern (measured from one screw to the next screw) being the same, can make installation easier. Do NOT cross the center rivet while measuring.
A swivel plate measuring 6" or 6 1/4" commonly has a mounting screw pattern of 5 1/4".
Many of our swivel plates measure 6 3/4" (frequently called 7"), but yet the mounting pattern is still 5 1/4" and will replace the smaller plates perfectly. Often, a 6" plate is a lighter gauge steel and may have fewer ball bearings as well.
