How to remove Counter Stools

Floor Mounted Stools

Remove floor mounted stools

If you purchased good counter stools for your restaurant, you may have noticed they are not easy to remove.  If you were not the person to install them, you may have no idea where and how they even attach to your floor.  If you are using counter stools purchased from you will have no trouble removing them.  Our counters tools require a special wrench built by the manufacturer.  This wrench goes inside the column of the counter stool to remove a large bolt that attaches the stool to the floor.  After you have removed the bolt, you can pull the counter stool off of the floor.  Once the stool is removed you will see what type of floor attachment was used to connect the stool to the ground.  Most counter stools attach to concrete floors.  You will have some trouble removing the floor attachment if it is attached to concrete.  If you have a wood floor, you will be able to removed the wood plate very easily.

Floor mounted bar stools used to come in all different shapes and sizes.  There used to be hundreds of small manufactures that made bar stools in the US.  That number has gotten smaller and smaller over the years.  The bigger companies have bought out the smaller companies and both big and small manufacturers have gone out of business.  It is really hard to compete with imports from China.  Now with all that said, there is still one manufacturer in the USA that knows how to build a commercial restaurant floor mounted bar stool.  That company is Richardson Seating.  Richardson Seating was established in 1975 after Richardson Seating’s founder sold his previous seating business.  Richardson Seating is a family run business and the family that runs it has been in the commercial furniture business for 4 generations.  That’s a lot of experience  Richardson Seating’s dies for its floor mounted counter stools predate even Richardson Seating.  Richardson Seating uses highly durable iron components for its line of floor mounted bar stools.  They use an iron bushing, iron threaded rods, and an iron bell.  Most companies simply use chrome plated steel.  Richardson Seating goes one step further by using iron.  They also have the largest selection of floor mounted bar stools that I have seen.  You can find Richardson’s line for sale at


If you are considering purchasing floor mounted bar stools, you should definitely check out Richardson’s selection.  You can’t go wrong with American Made.
