Heavy Duty Swivel
I have a Lazy boy recliner rocker that also swivels. The swivel finally broke after 26 years. Rockler had a direct replacement. The installation required using the screws from the old one and the installation could not have been any easier. Highly recommend.

The extra holes allow for more screws into the plywood round upholstered seat. Plus, I have some of these still in use after 15 years in a pub.

I need them to fix bar stools that been losing bearing balls. I think the nylon bearing retainer will improve the performance and also they have good reviews. Based on the specifications they will fit.

Looking to replace a 7x7 swivel with with slotted holes 5 3/4 center to center. will this swivel work?
Harvey C on Jan 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can see the diagram for this swivel if you click on the "Technical Document for 41202" on the webpage for this swivel. It shows you the dimensions.
Can this be used safely hung from the ceiling? This would be used to make a laundry room hanger.
A shopper on Aug 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The design of a bearing of this type requires that the two races compress the balls. Hanging this one from the ceiling pulls the races apart, rendering the balls useless. Also, this swivel will turn easily if someone sits on it and uses their feet, but it will not turn easily if hung from the ceiling. I suggest you get a donut-shaped 1000lb load lazy susan bearing, mount it in a box with a hole in the bottom and suspend the rack through the hole. The bottom race sits on the box (which is attached to the ceiling) and the rack sits on the top race and extends through the hole, keeping the bearing in compression. The lazy susan bearing will turn easily.
is this weather-proof?
Mel D on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used a number of these and I would not consider it weather proof, it is a great heavy duty swivel but it has exposed rotating faces and is not coated or sealed to keep out weather, still its a great product, if I needed it to be weather proof I think I would make that happen with the item it was being used with.
bar stool swivel plate does not stay when turned 1/4 when I am trying to install it on base. How do I make it stay?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what you mean? To get it to turn a quarter before the install? If that's what you mean use a flat tip scew driver into the top hole and catch the side of the bottom edge and push should give you what you need to attach one end
do they spin all the way around ? I think its called 190 degree ?
thomas on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
Will this go 360 degrees? I want to use this to make a large “lazy susan”, big enough for my child to sit on and be spun. How fast will it turn? And is it quiet?
Jeff K on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will go 360- I used them on bar stools and they’ve held up fine. It will turn fast enough to get dizzy with no problem. Very little noise and a little white lithium grease would probably eliminate most of it all. If you’re talking about something 4 or 5 feet in diameter I can’t say for sure but something for a small child I think you’ll be happy with them.
Can this swivel be used to mount something on a wall? If it is mounted on a wall will it turn with ease?
Gerst on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We bought this item from Rockler for repair of some kitchen stools, and it works wonderful, even with 250 lb person sitting on them. I would think that it would work just as wonderful if you attached it to the wall to hang something...Our stools move with ease. Good luck.
How stiff is this swivel? I am building a child's wagon and need a swivel for the steering mechanism. Would this move freely enough?
Richard on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The swivel I bought is supporting a cabinet roughly 16 by 16 by 60 inches tall with four shelves installed for holding shoes, sweatshirts, sweaters etc. So it moves freely but not quickly. I basically rotate it around to view the side with the mirror, then rotate it back. It takes two hands to move. On a child's wagon as a turning device, you may find it overkill or not that responsive to making a wagon go aroound a corner. I would look for a book that explains how "the red-flyer" or other type of child's wagon is steered and maneuvered. Good Luck.
Would I be able to mount something weighing 55lbs from the ceiling without it falling? I know it handles 188lbs in compression but what about tension.
Steve on Jun 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I would NOT use the swivel to hang anything from the ceiling. The pivot shaft is attached to the upper and lower plates in a manner that is very weak for tension. It is designed only for compression and works great for lazy suzan turntables.

Is this swivel heavy enough for a stool?
John D on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is. I used one to replace a worn out swivel in an old swivel rocker recliner chair a year ago. Works great. No problems at all. Highly recommend. I'm sure it would work in your application.
Can I use this to make a large recliner swivel?
Karen P on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You might check the specs for this to find out if there's any weight limit but I found it to work for a swivel stool/chair. It might work even better for your purpose since it is very stiff and for a lighter wt. chair it takes some effort to swivel. For a heavier chair it should work pretty well. jbs
WHAT IS THE ACTUALLY LBS LIMIT?
KIM D on Dec 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 188 lbs. center load rating
I'm trying to replace a 6 - 1/2 " square base, I see this part is slotted, will that work?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: IT works good, because there are 4 screws that hold it in place. The slots as opposed to a single hole doesn't matter. I used mine on a swivel bar stool, works great
I have an upholstered swivel rocker (with springs for the rocker action). Will this plus the spring attachment be the correct replacement?
Joseph R on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Joseph - I do wish I could answer your question but I cannot. My use for this was on a simple bar stool - no springs were involved. Sorry....
Does this heavy duty swivel come in 7" square size? It looks identical to my existing swivel...but mine is 7".
Andrea K on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can't get a good measurement but it looks to be 7"but I would Have to tear it apart to get a good measurement
Any way to adjust the tension? Turns fairly stiff
