When you find the chair that fits you just right you’re not going to want to give it up. Who knows if the chair you want is even available anymore?! Besides, any replacement chair that you get isn’t going to be broken in like the chair you already have. That’s why we’re happy to offer all of these replacement parts for some of our most popular models. That way we save you money, and memories!

How do I replace the wheels or casters on my chair?
Just pop them out, put in your replacement, and then tap them in using a mallet. You may want to put something hard into the wheel or castor like a small piece of wood so that you’re not directly tapping on your replacement parts.
How do I replace the gas cylinder on my chair?
First, gather your materials. We recommend work gloves and work goggles, a rubber mallet, a pipe wrench, and something to protect your work area from any potential messes (newspapers, plastic bags, or an old towel are all good ideas). Begin by laying down the materials to absorb any stains. Turn your office chair on its side, and use your mallet to tap the base away from your chair, gently. Secure your wrench near the cylinder, and turn the cylinder until it’s free from its encasement (if you don't have a wrench, remove the mechanism entirely by unscrewing the bolts that connect the mechanism to your seat's bottom). Use your mallet to tap the mechanism away from the chair. This is where the old towel or newspaper may come in handy: if your mechanism is stuck, apply some WD-40. Next, just pop out the old cylinder and slide in the new one. Then reattach the mechanism to the bottom of the chair. Voilà! Gas cylinder replaced. If you need further instruction, there are plenty of illustrated and video tutorials online.
What’s the Herman Miller Aeron/Mirra touch up paint for?
With this product you can cover up any scuffs or scratches on your chair and keep it looking good as new even when it’s long past new.
What’s the difference between the chair mats and the ActiveErgo Anti-Fatigue mat?
The chair mats keep your floor extra safe from the wheels of your chair. The ActiveErgo Anti-Fatigue mat is designed to be used with a standing desk. It reduces the pressure on your joints and feet so that it’s easier to stand. While you can put a chair on the ActiveErgo Anti-Fatigue mat, you won’t be getting any of the benefits of the mat while you’re sitting on it. And while the mat is durable, you will shorten its lifespan by consistently rolling on it.
