Having a good office chair is something to cling on to. If you’re going to be sitting somewhere for eight, nine, 10 – maybe even more – hours each day, it’s crucial that that seat is comfortable, supportive, and (in an ideal world) that it looks good too. Not only will a good office chair that’s been ergonomically designed make your working life more productive since you’ll be able to sit still for longer (although taking a break to move around every hour is a must as well), but it will make you happier to be working in the first place. All in all, a good office chair needs to be cherished.
So when your beloved office chair starts to have problems with its mobility (in other words, when its casters start to fail), your initial thought might be one of despair. But there is no need to worry; you don’t have to start the exhaustive and possibly expensive search for a new chair that will cradle you as well as the old one did. No. All you need to do is replace the casters. It’s as simple as that. Popping new casters on an old chair means that although the seat is just as comfortable as you’ve enjoyed over the years, the movement of the chair itself is brand new. It’s the best of both worlds.
Yet changing the casters on an office chair is not something that anyone has to do on a regular basis, and it’s highly likely that you’ve never done it before at all. Luckily, it’s not as difficult as it might seem, and this useful infographic will give you all the steps to do it right.
