Shock Mounts Lounge Chair Armrest
One of the most common reasons to destroy the vintage version of the iconic Lounge Chair are worn and dried out shock mounts.
If they break it is dangerous for the person sitting in the chair. But also for the chair: In many cases the shell breaks. This is a nearly non- repairable damage. New shell with the same veneer structure are hard to find, or, if Rio Palisander not replaceable! Shock Mounts Lounge Chair Armrest with metal threaded inserts screws included. Four shock mounts are needed for a complete Lounge Chair.
Please note instruction video below!
We urgently advise to change all 4 at once. Many of our customer order one or two shock mounts at the first order, and some weeks later the other! There is a high risk to break the back rest shell, if the shock mount breaks suddenly!!!

PLEASE NOTE: Our glue ist manufacturer tested with Herman Miller and Vitra shells and works fine!
But we had some glue issues with Chinese fake chairs, where the glue didn’t stick. The glue manufacturer told us, it may come from acid of plywood.
If you have a fake chair please find your own glue. You can try with ours, but we are not responsible if our glue don’t work
