Measuring Your Oval Chair Leg Inserts

Firstly, remove any existing chair leg inserts from the frame. You might need to use a flathead screwdriver to prise them off. Oval leg inserts can be specific in how they fit into the frame’s holes. Make sure you look at any rail end caps that you are removing to see if it looks like this will give you a good indication as to what you need to buy to replace it. You should always measure the length and width of the hole of the chair leg to be sure you are buying the right size. For additional support in measuring your oval chair leg inserts, see our page here.

Fitting the New Oval Leg Inserts

Firstly, ensure that the chair leg hole is the correct shape and that it has not been damaged through use over time. Place the new end cap on the hole and give it a light tap with a hammer to insert it snugly into the hole. You should do the same for all of the legs and inserts. If the tubing is a little too tight or too loose, you can manipulate the tubing with a pair of pliers to ensure as tight fit as possible.

You can sometimes reuse old chair leg inserts, but we always recommend buying new ones when carrying out maintenance and repairs on your patio furniture. This will increase the furniture’s longevity, allowing you to enjoy the comforts of your patio furniture for many more years to come.

That should be it, done and dusted! New oval chair leg inserts fitted! For additional help on the topic of chair leg inserts, read our Ultimate Guide. If you wish to order some of our chair leg inserts, you can find them here.
