    Slipping chair and/or bedchair legs - any solutions/fixes?

    The spring & plate make it sound just like my chair.. It is easy to take it apart and refit,, I've just received two new lengths of tube to replace the front legs on my chair which is a job I'll be doing on Sunday morning so if I remember I'll take pictures and post them on here for you.

    Sticky baits ellipse pellets

    I use two super glued together. I actually chose the Sticky ones over the sonu bait ones I thought how simular they were to the Hinders ones.. My local shop had both sonu & Sticky at the time. I just use the sticky now.
