Ekornes Stressless Swivel Ring Replacement- Put the Spin Back Into Your Chair!
The Ekornes Stressless Swivel Ring is used in the rare case that the ring attached to the bottom of your Stressless recliner gets damaged. If you need the attaching clips as well, please see the Stressless Elevator Ring Attachment kit.
Please measure the outside dimensions of your ring as these are available in a number of sizes. Also it is important to know whether your chair was built before or after 2011.
*Important Information about Stressless Swivel Rings and Sizing:
Ekornes swivel rings will only fit models manufactured by Ekornes from 1993 to Present.
Prior to 2012, Ekornes manufactured 2 different sizes of wooden bases for the 3 chair sizes: The Small/Medium & the Large. Clever design allowed them to fit a Small and Medium Seat on a base that had the same diameter on the bottom. The engineers at Ekornes are constantly innovating and announced at the end of 2011, that they would introduce 3 sizes of bases: The Small, the Medium, & the Large. The bases are difficult to tell apart unless you lay the chair on its back and count the Black Plastic Clips that connect the Wooden Base to the Plastic Swivel Ring that touches the floor. If there are 6, your wooden base was produced prior to 2012. If there are 8, your wooden base was produced post 2012.
If you purchased your recliner chair after 2012, you most likely have a base with 8 clips underneath. It is still possible to receive 6 clip styles as they have not been disbanded/eliminated. Ekornes has simply switched to primarily producing 8 Clip Bases from 2012 forwards. Let's look at the measured diameters of the circular rings. This is a secondary way to determine (or at least rule out) the size of your recliner base, so you'll know what size swivel ring to order.
