Wear safety goggles and a mask to prevent any fiberglass dust exposure
We recommend using a drill press to create new holes. If unavailable, a standard drill coupled with a vice, vice grips, or clamps can be a viable alternative.
Use your old plate as a guide to drill new holes, maintaining a minimum of 3/8" gap between the edge of the plate and the outer hole edge for optimal structural integrity.
Inspect the assembly order before part removal to ensure correct reinstallation. The pieces need to go back in the exact sequence they were removed.
Perform a thorough inspection of the plates for any potential cracks before proceeding with installation.
Carefully detach the old plates from your chair while keeping the original hardware for the reassembly process.
The bolts and nuts should never be in direct contact with the plates. Be careful not to over-tighten the hardware to avoid damage.
Place an old plate on top of a new one and make sure they are securely attached.
With the installation complete, it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of your day!
