I have a glider rocker and it squeaks terribly. I think it is the wood, not the bolts. Help please.

Here are the recent answer to this question.
Been having some trouble with my glider. It was creaking and would randomly stick. Discovered the sticking was a design flaw having to do with the locking mechanism (to keep it from rocking). Repaired that, but now, weeks later, the creaking has become much worse. The gliding mechanism is due to 8 bolts (like axles)--4 to a side. I have oiled all 8 bolts, but have seen absolutely no change in volume. Anyone have any other ideas?

Parafin wax (candle) is best applied by rubbing it into the wood, melted wax will only pop off very quick.

Take WD-40 or even kitchen non-stick spray and spray the wood where it is rubbing and see if it helps. Another option is to take a candle or beezwax and either melt it on there or rub it on there. This works great for kitchen or bathroom drawers that stick and don't slide well too.

We have a glider wooden chair in our living room, it came with a gliding stool. The rocker squeaks so loud that you can't sit in it and watch TV or have a conversation. HELP! My husband wants to get rid of it, but we have a lot of company and no other chair to replace it.

I have a wooden glider rocker that I can no longer use because of the horrible squeaking noise it makes as it rocks. I have tried WD40, spray graphite, and even Pam cooking spray to no avail. Does anyone know how to make the squeaking stop?

You might also check if it's the chair itself squeaking or if the squeak is coming from the floor beneath the chair when you're sitting. A very tiny floorboard movement can make big noise. (09/13/2008)

I have a glider rocker that squeaks. It is the seat springs that are squeaking though, and not the wood or screws etc. Any idea how to fix it?
