Hi All,
I'm in need of a few of the rubber feet the go into the ends of the tubular legs of a pak-a-seat. My tubular legs on my seat are 1" diameter so I guess the inner diameter is probably something like 7/8" or 15/16". If anyone knows who might have these to sell, I would appreciate it if you could send that info along.
Thanks,
Bob M.

You can buy these in white or black at any hardware store for around $2.00

Except my local hardware store (not the best one, unfortunately).

Steeler's Choice seat company.

Jerry van Hoose also posted in his sho bud seat thread that he has some of these too. Search 'em out.

Bob..Walmart generally stocks rubber feet in various sizes. (However, after reading your post more closely, are you actually looking for the end plugs?)

Yes, you guys are right; my search was not inclusive enough. I used to live in Los Angeles which has so many really great hardware stores (think aircraft industries) but where I'm at now it's less so. I just have to search around more.

End plugs is probably the correct nomenclature. I guess I said feet because they are on the bottom, in contact with the ground or floor. After a busy summer playing, I'm just going thru things now, fixing this and that, and getting ready for the phone to ring.

The "end plugs" in my Steelers Choice seat are plastic, not rubber. They tend to slide too easy on non-carpeted stages. I bought 4 rubber crutch tips and put them on the ends of the legs as "feet". No more slippy-slidey.

Bob,

If you find that rubber end caps (feet) is what you want, then the Fleabay link below is search results where you can find just about any size, color, shape, etc. But it occurred to me that rubber end caps might interfere with pac-a-seat legs folding into their closed position. .... (For the life of me I can't remember how to incorporate the http / url into a word hot-link. Old COVID Long Haul brain Confused )

Very Best Wishes,

Very Best Wishes,


They don't present any problem in folding the legs in on my Steelers Choice seat. They do however, stick a little past the bottom edge of the seat slightly. Not a problem though.
