Why Does My Office Chair Keep Sinking?
By Rachel Howe on Thursday, May 10, 2018

Have you been wondering lately, "why does my office chair keep sinking?" every time you sit down on it? What is going on and why is it doing that?

It's not just you. This can happen to your chair after a few years of frequent use. The valve that your seat height lever controls is controlled by a piston that lets air in and out. When your chair keeps sinking, this means that valve, also known as a chair cylinder, is no longer working.

In order to fix it, you will either have to replace the piston or get a new chair. However, replacing the office chair's piston can be challenging, and sometimes, not possible.

If you're up to fixing it or replacing it, you can give it a go by checking out our blog post on how to replace an office chair cylinder here, or by simply watching the video below.

If you tried to give this your best go and the chair still isn't cooperating, head over to our best sellers , top-rated , or on-sale sections to find a perfect replacement!
