How to Lock a Swivel Seat So it Doesn’t Swivel

By

From swivel to stationary in 2 steps!

If you have swivel stools and are concerned about your children banging them into the counters, there’s an easy way to child-proof them by locking the swivel mechanism.

From swivel to stationary:

  1. Turn the stool upside down and identify the swivel plate which connects the base to the seat. It usually looks like two plates with a swivel mechanism between them.
  2. Drill a hole through both the top and bottom plates (use a drill bit made for metal), then insert a screw. This will lock your seat so it doesn’t swivel, creating a stationary stool.
