What are Chair Raisers used for?

Chair Raisers are used to increase the height of beds, lounge chairs and sofas. This makes it easier to get in and out.

Even though they are called “Chair Raisers” they can be used under beds, lounges, sofas and tables.

Any furniture that is heavy enough to remain stable on top of the Chair Raisers can be raised.

Plastic Chair Raisers - Frequently Asked Questions

What size Chair Raiser should I use?

The correct height for each installation needs to be worked out by an Occupational Therapist or
other suitably trained professional.

My furniture has square legs. Can I use Chair Raisers?

Yes, as long as the leg fits within the “well” on the top of the Chair Raiser. If the leg is too big for
the well, add a Chair Raiser Biscuit.

My furniture has castors or wheels. Can I use Chair Raisers?

The answer is probably yes. The wells on the Chair Raisers are designed to accept common castor
sizes. You may also be able to remove the castors to make the leg fit into the Chair Raisers.

Should I get the little mats?

The mats fit in the wells of the Chair Raisers, under the legs of the furniture, to reduce movement.
They are not usually necessary for safety, but many people do prefer to use them.

What are chair raiser biscuits used for?

Chair raiser biscuits allow chair raiser to be used with oversize legs. The biscuit is screwed into the
bottom of the leg and provides a firm anchor, which prevents the furniture sliding off.
