Having an office chair with a loose or worn-out base can be an annoyance. Fortunately, it is possible to replace the base of the chair and restore it to its original condition. In this article, we’ll show you how to remove the base of an office chair without any damage.
Before you start, gather the following tools:
- Flathead screwdriver
- Phillips screwdriver
- Putty knife
Preparing the Chair
The first step is to prepare the chair for the base removal. Start by flipping the chair over. Look for any screws or fasteners that are holding the base in place. If there are any, use the appropriate screwdriver to remove them.
When all the screws have been removed, you can start to pry the base away from the chair. Use the putty knife to gently pry the base away from the chair frame. Be careful not to damage the chair frame while doing this.
Removing the Base
Once the base has been pried away from the chair frame, you can begin to remove the base. Start by unplugging any electrical cables that are connected to the base. If there are no cables, the base should easily come off the chair.
If there are any remaining screws or fasteners, use the appropriate screwdriver to remove them. Once all the screws and fasteners have been removed, the base should easily come off the chair.
Now that the base has been removed, you can begin to install the new one. Start by aligning the new base with the chair frame. Use the screws and fasteners that came with the new base to secure it in place.
Finally, plug in any electrical cables that were connected to the old base. Once all the cables are connected, the new base should be securely in place.
Now that you know how to remove the base of an office chair, you can easily replace it with a new one. With a few simple tools and a bit of patience, you can restore your chair to its original condition.
