FIXES: When a swivel rocker rocks too far and risks tipping over backward, it needs a new rocker spring plate or a pair of them. Plates wear with normal use and eventually need replacement; this is common. Replacing them is an easy fix to maintain your furniture.

  1. As described, but much weaker than steel spring plates. Review by Chair Repair Guy
    Rating

    They arrived in just a few days. I wish they came in a 3" by 6" so the match drilled holes I put in them with a drill press were further from the edges. Even these heavy duty ones are not has strong as the original 1/8" steel plates. I'm replacing the steel plates with sets of fiberglass plates as they break (only two of the steel plates have broken after 18 plus years of use) in harsh MN weather, outside uncovered year round. Even though the fiberglass plates are more than twice as thick, they are much weaker that the 1/8" thick steel plates. They allow the chairs to tip further back and even sideways more than I like. I'm sure when they fail, they will fail at the bolt holes. Just not enough material between the holes and the edge of the plates in my case. I wanted to buy replacement steel plates, but can't find them. Match drilling was easy, but I had to modify the chair's clamps on one end to accommodate the fiberglass plates being more than twice as thick as the steel plates. I'm sure they won't last 18 plus years as the original steel ones have, but I didn't want to buy new chairs, as I love these swivel rocker chairs. I'd have doubled up the fiberglass plates (used 4 per chair) if the design of the chairs would have easily accommodated that, but is does not.

    Patio Furniture Supplies Note..... If you do not have Reinforcing Metal Straps part number PFS-2G5467 you need to purchase them. The head of the bolt and the nut should never be installed directly against the rocker spring plate!!!

  2. Good Product Review by Andy
    Rating

    I bought these after purchasing the ones with pre-drilled holes. The pre-drilled didn't fit my chair and it was my fault I didn't measure (didn't notice the warning on the items description).

    In any case, these are good for what they are. The original ones lasted 10+ years, so I hope these last as long.

    Frankly, I was surprised to see they were plastic, but I hope they're good plastic! (Posted on 7/14/2017)

  5. Worked as advertised Review by Tony

    Seems a bit pricy for a flat piece of fiber plate but they are less expensive than buying replacement chairs. The replacement HD rocker plates worked great! (Posted on 7/9/2017)

    Now guests don't hollar woah and flail their arms about when they lean back. Drilling the holes was easy with a sharp bit. I'm glad I got the heavy duty ones. Perfect replacement. (Posted on 6/19/2017)

    We bought one set to try and they worked perfectly, so we're going to get 3 more sets for our other 3 chairs! (Posted on 6/19/2017)

    Love the heavy duty spring action to this replacement. Easy to drill using the old piece as a template. Took all of 10 minutes and my rocker chair is back in use. (Posted on 6/16/2017)

    After having received the wrong plates from the manufacturer, I decided to make my own. This product was received quickly and is exactly as described. Easy to drill and replace. I really like the added strength of this heavy duty rocker plate. (Posted on 6/15/2017)

  11. Fit perfectly, makes my chairs feel new again. Review by Good Firm Springs
    Rating

    I have 2 swivel rockers I bought off of CraigsList. They were pretty wobbly so I bought 4 springs and painted them. The package was opened; I think Patio Furniture Supplies didn't package them so well but nothing was missing. I took off the old springs and used them for templates. Easy to drill through the new ones. Two of the old ones had a crack in them that I could not see until I took them off so glad I replaced them. The chair is much firmer now as it should be. The new springs are a bit thicker than the old ones so I was thinking I'd have to get new bolts to extend through, but it worked fine. I'm glad I got the HD springs. (Posted on 6/9/2017)

  12. Great product Review by Mark

    These are exactly what they say they are. Easy to replace - just take the old ones and use them to mark the new ones and drill. My replacement took about 5 minutes of work.

    The new plates are very tight and take about one season to loosen up enough for a comfortable rock on the patio chair. Looking forward to years more of use! (Posted on 6/5/2017)

  13. Good Service and Product Review by GotWrong Part
    Rating

    I am changing my review to a 4 star due to good customer service for getting the correct parts back quickly. These are thicker than the standard so are stiffer. After years of the old one being broke down, feels good to have these fixed. Not a problem to install and was medium easy. 16 Year old grandson assisted and he was capable of doing the install.

    To drill new holes, use the old part as a template. I used Vice Grips to keep them from slipping during drilling. Place on a board and the vice grips only touched the board and the template with the new part sandwiched in between. (Posted on 6/5/2017)

  14. Right Part Number ordered but wrong part sent Review by GotWrong Part

    I have sent the pre-drilling wrong part back and waiting on some indication I am getting the right one.

    Return was easy and they sent a shipping label by emai. However, did not get chairs repaired in time for Memorial Day since wrong part was sent. (Posted on 5/30/2017)

  16. I was disappointed in having to pay return postage. Review by cclk
    Rating

    Material was delivered timely. I ordered 2 of the wrong ones - my fault. The descriptions were accurate - I overlooked some of the information.
    I was disappointed that I had to pay return postage since I was now ordering 10 of the correct plates. Again - it was my mistake. (Posted on 5/16/2017)

  17. Worked Perfectly Review by lquintana
    Rating

    I needed to replace 4 springs on 2 different chairs. One was a swivel and the other a rocker. I went with these so that I could customize where the holes were drilled. The material is easy to drill through and fit perfectly on the chairs. The furniture feels like new again. Very strong and sturdy springs that will last. Quality product. (Posted on 5/4/2017)
