Many office chairs are able to roll and can be converted to be stationary. (Black office chair isolated on a white background. image by wolandmaster from Fotolia.com)

Office chairs are often equipped with castors or wheels to enable movement. However, a time may come when you no longer need the mobility of an office chair. You can convert a rolling chair into a stationary chair quickly and easily by removing the wheels on the bottom of the chair.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the chair on its back so that the wheels are off the floor and facing you.

  2. 2

    Remove alll wheels. Depending on the chair, this can by done in two different ways. Hold the chair tightly and simply pull the wheels out of the legs/base of the chair. If wheels are held in place with bolts, turn the bolts counter-clockwise until the wheel is released.

  3. 3

    Glue on protective padding to the chair legs. You can get pre-cut felt, cork or rubber pads or get a sheet and cut it to size. The padding will protect the floor from damage.

Tips and warnings

  • Be careful when sitting in the chair for the first time, to make sure the integrity of the chair was not affected during wheel removal.
  • Test the chair for stability. Turn chair right side up and carefully sit down.
