Does anyone know where one can buy the rubber office chair arms that cover the ends? I bought two office chairs for our computers several years ago and forgot where. No Brand Name on them! The rubber arm covers are cracking and breaking. I have glued them, but that is no longer sufficient. Where can one get these rubber arm covers? Any web links would be appreciated. I am toying with the idea of making wood replacement covers to screw onto the arms.

How formal is the office? I have had luck with glueing tapestry placements onto chair arms to cover worn spots. Maybe that would work in your case, too.
I use seat belt covers on my chairs. The ones you use in the car so they do not rub on your neck.
My "Office Chairs" are in my basement computer/hobby room - no formality whatsoever!
The rubber arms are cracking and breaking up.
I found a place that wants $45 for one chair's arms and that includes shipping... The darned chairs cost $60 to begin with!
Looks like I'll be making wood arms to screw on in place of the rubber ones....
... or type "office chair replacement parts" into a Yahoo search and pick one of the many other sites.
