Barstool Swivels and Parts by Trendler

Trendler Barstools Swivels

Bars and restaurants are social environments. People go to bars to unwind, spend time with friends, and see a show. These establishments can help enhance the experience of their patrons with barstools that swivel.

Since 1932, Trendler has been a leading provider of barstool swivels and swivel replacement parts. We design and produce heavy-duty barstool swivel mechanisms and replacement parts for a variety of barstool types and styles. Our barstool swivel plates and parts are manufactured in our Chicago factory, and they are built to be long lasting.

Our barstool swivel mechanisms and replacement parts are ideal for bars and restaurants that need to replace the swivels on their existing barstools or for consumers who have bars in their homes and want quality barstools that will impress their guests.

Why are Barstool Swivels Important?        

In short, barstool swivels make it easier for patrons to move around within a bar or restaurant. People can get in and out of their barstools easier when they swivel without sliding back which can prevent damage to the floors. Patrons can also easily turn to face each other when talking and if there is a live band at the bar, they can turn in the direction to face the band. This prevents people from moving their barstools to get a better view which can block aisles.

Barstool swivels help the bottom line of an establishment as well because it is easier to face the bartender and order another drink.

When Should Barstool Swivels be Replaced?

When barstool swivels are worn out or in disrepair, they should be replaced immediately. You should replace swivels when they become loose, wobbly, or noisy, and if the return spring becomes broken or the ball bearings fall out.  

It is important to get a high-quality barstool swivel replacement as cheaper swivels may become easily damaged or noisy. Inexpensive import barstool swivels tend to be of lower quality.  

At Trendler, we produce high-quality, durable barstool swivel plate and replacement parts in the U.S.

High Quality Barstool Swivels

Trendler offers a variety of barstool swivel mechanisms and replacement parts that can be easily installed on any type of barstool. Our barstool swivel plates are made from high quality steel and feature ball bearings that make the movement of the swivel smooth and quiet. The powder coating on the steel parts protects from moisture and rust which adds to their durability.

The barstool swivel mechanism allows for a 180-degree rotation and some of our swivel options include 90 degree stops and auto return. This allows the barstool to automatically rotate back to its original position.

Our barstool swivels are ideal for the following:

  1. Metal barstools
  2. Wooden barstools
  3. Upholstered barstools
  4. Backless barstools
