Just what I was looking for.
These worked perfectly. The fit was great. They happened to be a little larger than my original braces but they are not very noticeable. Stained and poly’d them. Quick shipping.

Oak Chair Brace
I'm restoring a 1940's wood highchair and one of the original braces grew legs and disappeared. These are larger than the original ones and didn't quite fit correctly BUT, with a hand plane and a little sanding I was able to shape them to fit correctly. I knew that these were universal so was prepared to have to do a little modifying to make them fit. Had both fitted and installed in less than 30 minutes. Great product.

Good product
The only suggestion I wanted to make if at all possible have the manufacture round the ends instead have pointed ends.

repairing an antique chair one brace had broken oak<br />Chair over 100 years old...hope it works
nancey l on Jun 24, 2018
The first pair I bought split immediately upon screwing one of them into the chair. I really need only one of them. A friend suggested that the screw, with a rounded, domed head, was the issue. Maybe so?<br />Yes, it has been a while since I ordered the first ones, but the chair is a family heirloom. It is not being used until I manage to get it cross country to my niece. I appreciate that I can still get the item from Rockler.<br />Thanks,<br />Jill

I have an oak claw foot table set that I bought in 1986 or 1987; beautiful set but chairs need to be fixed or replaced, any recommendations.?
Kimberly K on Jan 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The chair knee brace is usually not flat on the back side. It is designed that way to fit the back rung which is round and is needed for proper connection. However when you attempt to make the connection to the set, which is flat you need to remove the curved part to the set for a more solid connection. This can be done with a flat file or a course sandpaper. Good luck with your project
Can I buy just one?
Russ R on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. However, they will keep. If one breaks on one chair, another one on one of your chairs is surely going to break later. Just store the extra in your shop. I have a chair and extra brace out in my shop right now, waiting for me to get round-to-it.,
What size are these oak braces?
Kay M on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Approximately .75 inch wide by 6 inches long. I used them to replace two broken pieces on an old chair. They appear to be standard replacements.Enter
What size screw is used?
Tim C on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the dia of the backrest dia.
Instead of a screw I would like a tee topped bolt to attach my chair back brace into the chair bottom??
