How can you fix squeaky office chairs?
Linda P from PA
If you know where the squeak is try silicone spray. You can get it at the auto parts store pretty cheap. Or you can try powdered graphite from a hardware store. I suppose you could sit forever with a number 2 pencil and go over the area where the squeak is, but the powdered graphite is much quicker.
Good Luck. (04/25/2007)
As crazy as it sounds try Vaseline. Not sure if it'll work for ya, but it worked for the one we have here at home. I put some in a sandwich bag, snipped off the corner of the bag and "Piped" it onto the problem area, then smoothed with a Q-Tip. I've used cooking spray too. Both of them have worked. Good luck.

WD40 seems to dry up after a week or so. We have found the silicone spray lasts longer. I also think that the Vasoline trick may be even better since that won't dry up at all. (04/26/2007)
Vaseline trick works like a charm. Took the seat apart from mount, lubed up all metal contact points, and no more loud squeaks. (08/24/2008)
