This pre-drilled fiberglass rocker spring plate measures 2 1/2" wide x 5" long x .266" thick (compared with the standard .250" thick) and has a US standard size hole pattern. Center of holes is 1/2" inch from edges and 1 1/2" apart at either end; 5/16" holes. This is a very common, but not universal, hole pattern. Compare this hole pattern with your existing plates before ordering. These plates can be spray painted or powder coated. Click on additional part views to help confirm if this is the item you need. 

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. 

Sold individually, not as a pair. No minimum quantity required; larger quantities are eligible for volume discounts as shown above when applied to the same item, sku and color on the same order.

ADDITIONAL: If your plate has a different hole pattern, the Rocker Spring Plate HD - 2 1/2" x 5" Heavy Duty (Part #PFS-25HD) is undrilled so that you can use your old plate as a pattern to drill the holes in the new plate.

  1. Perfect! Review by Jeff

    I ordered the plates that were predrilled and they fit perfectly! This was an easy fix on a couple swivel chairs that we’re worthless. (Posted on 7/31/2018)

  2. Perfect fit! Review by DIY

    I read the reviews that the holes may not be an exact match but decided to take a chance. Turned out to be a perfect fit for my Gensun patio chairs. These springs are a little heavier duty than the ones I had been buying. It was great not to have to drill holes! Chairs are like new and I am ordering more! (Posted on 6/27/2018)

  9. Holes were off Review by Sad

    The actual spring plates were what I needed but the holes were too far off from what I needed, even though I measured. Had to return, since I couldn't re-drill them, which cost just as much as buying them. Make sure you measure and remeasure or better yet get the ones that aren't drilled if you have a means of drilling them (Posted on 6/6/2018)

  24. Heavy Duty Spring Plate Review by Mark

    These plates were 1/2" longer than my old plates but not a problem with the heavy duty version. Always get the robust version; save yourself having to replace the plates again. I would pay more for a white or tan factory painted version. (Posted on 5/25/2017)

  25. Quality and fit of product Review by William Dockery

    The replacement plates were identiical to what my old plates were except for the hole spacing was not the same and had to be drilled. Not a problem. Once installed worked like new. Thanks (Posted on 5/23/2017)

Carefully measure the position of the holes on your old rocker spring plate and compare with the Rocker Spring Plate - 2 1/2 x 5" Pre-Drilled before ordering. This heavy duty plate is 2 1/2" wide x 5" long x .266" thick. 5/16" holes are centered 1/2" inch from all edges. Holes at either end are 1 1/2" apart. Click on additional part views above.
Before replacing the rocker spring plate, closely examine the assembly of the rocker spring plate, reinforcing metal strap, nuts and bolts. The head of the bolt and the nut should never be installed directly against the rocker spring plate. (Bolts, nuts and reinforcing metal straps not included; re-use those from your swivel rocker.)

The thickness of the plates can be doubled, but the rocking action will be more stiff.
