Ekornes Stressless Replacement Glide Wheel Casing- Bring smooth reclining action back to your older Stressless Recliner!

Choose the quantity of glide wheel casings that you need above. Did you know that Ekornes changed the glide wheels and casings around the year 2000 (sometime between 2000-2002)? So Stressless chairs produced at this time or before will not be compatible with this Glide Wheel Casing. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide replacements for those casings. We have however, heard from customers that the glide wheel casings from earlier models can often be found "used" from local directory listing or auction sites.

We have found that a broken glide wheel casing is typically the cause of a Stressless recliner that will no longer recline back and forth effortlessly. You will need your existing glide wheel, washer and long bolt (which attaches the wheel to the actual Stressless seat). Please use the existing parts from your Stressless chair. If you no longer have those parts, please order the complete Ekornes Stressless Glide Wheel here.

Remember that Ekornes changed the glide wheels between 2000- 2002, so Stressless chairs produced at this time or before will not be compatible.


stressless-glide-wheels-old-and-new-small imageHelpful hint: To remove the glide wheel bolt and replace the glide wheel or glide wheel casings, use a star bit size T45 (or comparable-sized Allen wrench hex key). These are typically available at your local hardware store.

    Excellent product which was easily fitted with a Torx T50 key (not T45 as suggested)

    Dispatched on day the order was received 21/6/2021. Arrived 10/7/2021 having travelled with USPS from Pearl MS 39208 via North Houston, Chicago, Miami before arriving London Heathrow Airport on 9/7/2021. I received it the day after. Thanks to Unwind Company for chasing up USPS, I recommend them and would use them again - if they use UPS instead!

    Fit for old model chair

    Published by Peter on 8th Jul 2021

    I had a 30 year old Stressless with the older type glides. I was at the point of trashing it and bought these to attempt a repair. The good news is they work perfectly if you reuse your old wheel and bolt. To get them to work I enlarged the bolt hole with a file as the older style bolt is a little larger. Otherwise no issues.
