Humanscale Freedom Chair Replacement Base, Cylinder and Footring Parts

Replace the base, cylinder, or footring in a snap on your Freedom Chair

Effective 11/15/2021, Humanscale requires a signature upon delivery.

When you need a replacement cylinder, base, or footring for your Humanscale Freedom Chair, we have you covered.

Our Humanscale Freedom Chair Replacement Base, Cylinder, and Footring Parts are manufactured to replace broken or worn out parts on your Freedom Chair, giving it new life with the addition of just a few components.


  • Note: In March 2010 the taper of the cylinders was changed. As a result the new cylinders will not work with an old base. When ordering replacement cylinders for chairs built prior to March 2010, it is important to also order a replacement base.

Polished aluminum
Cylinder options Standard 5"
High 8"
Extra high 10"
Footring options 18" chrome
21" chrome


Raise or lower the height of the Freedom's seat by selecting a cylinder size. When sitting in a chair, a person's feet should rest comfortably on the floor or a foot rest. Ninety-five percent of our customers select the standard height for their chair; however, a petite user with a lower desk or a tall user with a higher desk can opt for a custom configuration without worrying about bumping their knees on a work surface.

  • Standard height cylinder fits 90% of the population
  • High range cylinder is available for very tall users
  • Combines with a footring to make the Freedom Chair a Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair

Please Note: If you aren't sure which height is best for you, give us a call and we'll help you choose.

Humanscale Cylinder height


The Freedom Chair comes standard with a highly durable composite base with graphite a finish, or upgrade to a powder-coated or polished aluminum base finish.

Humanscale Freedom Chair Base


Add an 18'' or 21'' footring to your extra high cylinder to make the Freedom Chair a Humanscale Freedom Drafting Chair. The footring only comes in chrome.

    Replacement parts for freedom chair

    Posted by Gene Budsock on Apr 2nd 2020

    Service representatives are super. It would be helpful if instructions were included with the parts. The video was misleading it took a lot of sweat and different tools to remove the parts. Once I got to the rep they explained the issues.

    Fantastic customer support for my chair and have been able to fix several components over the past few years. Had issues w the arms, but replacements were provided free of charge. Decided to do the pistons at the same time and ordered a piston. Unfortunately the model had changed dimensions for the base and (speaking volumes about customer service) Humanscale recognized the error and sent me the base free of charge. Could not ask for any better service! Additional kudos to Jonah (my service rep) for doing the research and generally being a great guy. Thank you for such great service. Highly recommend the chair and purchasing from this site!
