They worked out perfectly, if you had cushions that would fit for reasonable price, that would finish the restoration of the 100+ year old rocker, but I'm sure you don't, so thank you and God bless you.

The replacements were perfect for the rocker. Because of the age of the old ones I had to realign some holes but they really fit verty well.

Broken spring bracket on my favorite Lane rocker recliner. Searched for "Lane spring bracket" and there it was. Much easier than trying to weld the old one.

I've had to keep my rocking chair against a wall for 20 years due to broken springs. I had a lightbulb moment today and realized there just might be replacement springs available online. Found them in less than 10 seconds. Why on earth didn't I think of this sooner?!!

Larry O on Oct 30, 2019
For an Eastlake platform rocker... mine has single springs on each side. I've seen these called "youth size". I don't think the area of wood is large enough to screw in the double springs. Anyone else run into this issue? Thx Nancy
Nan s on Sep 19, 2016
Have just fitted springs to new chair, feels like you are going to fall over backwards , is there some special way to fit them??
arthur r on Jun 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had the same problem until I moved the spring set forward 2 inches on the pedestal. You will have to try trial and error to fit it correctly.
I have two rocker recliner chairs that are so stiff and dont rock easily. Is there a way to fix this?

What is considered a pair? Is a pair for both sides of a rocker?
Frank on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They come in a sealed plastic bag that contains two of the pictured components, one for each side. Each component has two springs (one controlling the rocker motion one way, the other controlling it the other way), but that's not the "pair." You'll get two components, enough for both sides of one chair.
How do you spread the springs to reattach to the original chair?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The new springs were almost an exact match to the original springs bracket and all so to begin with the hole pattern for the screws has to match - if the hole pattern doesn't match the spring set is not really the right one. Once you are sure the hole pattern is the same and the old bracket and spring is off, screw in the screws in the chair's bracket and next you need to put in one screw in the base. The screw hole should not be very far off but you may need to use several flat blade screw drivers to pry the spring coils apart. Plan on doing this with two people working on it. So once you have the two screws in the chair side bracket and one screw in the base bracket you can use the base to line up the last screw hole. Just plan on taking some time and be patient - some times it took several attempts to do each step. There again, if the hole patterns aren't identical, you have the wrong spring set. Good luck.
I just bought a 70 y o modern Heywood Wakefield platform rocker; which the 2 curves rock on each other, not on a inner lower shelf like I saw on another platform rocker. I do not like the action of it; too stiff, too short a span, too the return too quick. I am concerned that the short span has to do with the shape of the rocking pieces; these are angled, not a balanced half moon. perhaps that is to slow the backward motion, as there are no stops. As far as the too quick, jerky & stiff action, I want a more leisurely rock, paced to a heartbeat, not a jackrabbit. I presume the coils ate too stiff & perhaps need a less heavy duty pair? but ads claim "never sag" but my issue is I wish they would relax more. so I am not sure replacing them will solve the problem. I wish I could stretch out the ones that are on there. mine have 9 coils & I see that advertised as "heavy duty". will just swapping them out for a 10 coil "standard" pair slow it down? want some physics understanding here before I change the original & invest in non returnable parts. Thanks for any insights..
peggy e on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry without seeing the frame that these are going on I cannot help. The biggest thing would be if these springs are compatible with your chair, I cannot tell without seeing the rocker base frame these will attach to.
How do you spread the springs so that they can be reattached to the original base and seat?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: First I attach three screws to the top or bottom bracket. Then with the help of another person to hold the chair. I take a long screw driver and slide it between end of bracket through the spring and pry bracket down till the hole in bracket is over hole in chair frame put in screw and repeat for the other end. Hope this helps. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. If you have already attached the spring then good for you. Happy woodworking.

We took these springs off a rocker so we could paint the rocker. Now how do we get them back on? The screw holes do not match the original holes. The springs seem to be completely compressed and needs to be spread wider to be able it from base to chair. What do we need to do?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had a bit of a struggle with this when I was replacing old springs with these new ones. After attaching one side of the bracket, I then used a medium-large screwdriver to wedge into the spring coils and pry or twist them open enough to get one screw into the proper hole on the other side of the bracket. With that one screw in place, it became easier to continue wedging with the screwdriver and get the other screw holes lined up. I don't think I could have done it without an extra pair of hands helping -- one person prying, the other lining up holes and driving in the screw.
Do the screws come with the springs?
Terri R on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They did not, but I reused the old ones. It was a little difficult getting the springs in position and putting the screws back in, but I had help, so it's all good. My rocker works great again!
Springs don't fit.Do the springs need to be in tension? Not sure where to drill new holes?,
DENNIS G on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I disagree with the first answer. It will save you problems if you have about 3/16" elongation in the springs when mounted on the chair, at rest. (You can do that by putting a screwdriver or wood shims between the coils front & back while locating your mounting holes.) Otherwise, the end springs can over-compress when rocking, giving you a noticeable "bump" each time one coil of the spring rides up over the next.
How do you remove the springs from a lazy boy rocking chair?
jana j on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the springs are the same as those in the picture you just remove the six screws. Please be aware that there is tension in the springs so may need to be expanded somewhat when you attach the new springs. A screwdriver between the tines works just fine to expand the spring. You may need to partially disassemble the bottom to get at the springs. That would depend on the particular model of chair.
How many curls in the springs?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are 8 coils per spring.
What is diameter and height of springs in this Assembly?
Chuck N on Mar 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Height is 1 1/2” and the O.D. is 1 3/4”
I have an old antique rocker with single spring coils on each side. The brackets are cast iron and one is broken. I can't seem to find single springs or the brackets to use as replacements. Would the double springs work as a replacement for this? Thanks
Tina S on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure it would work as long as you replace both sides. You may have to adjust the placement of the brackets in order to get the right rock. I hope this helped
I need some help understanding how these fit a rocker? Starting with a good captain's chair from a van, I want to build a rocker base?
Andrew W on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These work with a "platform rocker". If you can find a good picture of the base of a platform rocker (google it) it will be clear how to proceed.
We have an upholstered that belonged to my grandfather, then my father and now me and I'm 70. We had it recovered some years ago and the upholsterer put your new springs on the chair. The screw holes in the wood have elongated so we drilled glued and doweled the holes. Now we need to reattach the spring set. Is there a tool that spreads the spring assembly for the purpose of reattaching the base to the chair?
