Do you know how to fix a sinking office chair? Furniture of the house and office is much important because it plays an important role in the shining of the house and office. If we discuss the chair, it’s an important part of the office.

A few days earlier office management decide to exchange the chairs with a new sinking office chair. Currently, settled chairs are replaced after only one reason. The reason is the failure of the height pipe.

Chairs that have faulty adjustable cylinders have this as a common feature. You see, your desk chair uses a piston cylinder. The cylinder maintains the height of the chair, the chair holds a clump. If you want to change the height of the chair then push up the clump and change height.

But there is a problem, after a few years, the piston-cylinder loses its work because the piston-cylinder manages the height using pressure air. It’s not easy to maintain the height because 60 to 70 kg weight is on a chair and the piston-cylinder maintains the height using pressure air.

Most of the chairs have a 3 to 4 year age of his piston. After a 3 or 4-year chair lost his piston cylinder and then the user feels uncomfortable. He absolutely feels uncomfortable because each user sets his height according to his needs.

In this situation, the replacement of the chair is not a good option because if the company purchase 200 or more chair for its staff every 2 to 3 year then the company lose a large amount of budget on purchasing chairs.

In this step, we can put a clump around the pipe. You will easily get a clump from a hardware store. Reached the hardware store and says” We need a clump for pipe”.

Put clump on pipe and tight as much as possible and ensure that the clump is fully tight on the pipe. That clump pushes up the seat and maintains the height of the chair. The clump has an important role and tries to get quality clump.

After measuring the distance we will purchase a pipe that is put on the pipe that is released by the piston cylinder. Please buy a quality pipe because these pipes are pushup your weight, if you select a normal pipe then it’s possible to break the pipe after 2 or 3 weeks. So, purchase a quality pipe and increase the life of the chair.
