Guides to Install, Replace or Repair Swivel Base
The Lazy Boy Swivel base is a luxury tool, but based on the owner’s preference you can decide to add it to your recliner, repair or replace it when damaged. Note that the installation of your Swivel base depends on the recliner model.

1. Invert Your Recliner Upwards
To make your installation less stressful and also keep your work environment tidy, it is advisable that you make use of a sheet. Turn over the chair on the tarp to reveal the base mechanisms. You might want to ask for help.

2. Remove The Detachable Coverings
It is only when you expose the chair mechanism that you will be able to proceed with your installation, replacement or repair. This can be simply be done by removing the detachable coverings by using your hand, claw hammer or screwdriver for coverings that come with screws and nuts.

3. Remove The Swivel Base

4. Detach The Screws Of Your Rocking Base And Remove It

5. Detach The Mechanisms From Rocking Base
To install the swivel base, detach the reclining mechanism from the frame of the rocking base. Then you can take heed of the next step below.

6. Screw-In The Frame Of Swivel To Reclining Mechanism
This is the stage where you can attach your frame to the reclining mechanism by screwing it in. The reclining mechanism has about 3-4 holes for attachment. It is important that the frame is securely fitted to the reclining mechanism so you can make use of 3 holes.
Flip it over across the crossbars, and use a stick to hold it in place. Make sure the holes align at the sides. In case the holes are not well aligned, use a metallic object such as claw hammer to adjust it, so it doesn’t make things difficult. Make sure to screw in the sides as well to the crossbars.

7. Lock In Swivel Base
With all the above steps in place, you can now attach your swivel base. Place your swivel base across the pre-designed holes and carefully lock them in with special 360 rotating screws. Rotate and spin the swivel base to ensure it’s flexible.

    The 4 screws the hold the circle wooden base to my lazy boy swivel rocker are loose and/or somehow come through the holes in the base. The rest of the chair is in perfect condition so I hate to throw it away. Do I need to replace the whole wooden base where the problem seems to be only that the screws are no longer attached to it?

    I have a Hampden swivel rocker and a spring is broke. I cannot find my correct springs; they are offset mounted. Does anyone have the numbers I need to give to Lazy Boy to order. All the springs I have found are mounted wrong.

    I’m needing help with replacement springs for my Hampden swivel rocker. It does not recline and the springs are mounted offset. Does anyone have the numbers from the bottom of the chair that I need to order new springs.
