Hey folks, this may seem like a silly question, but I'm having a little trouble.

Ordered replacement seat cushions (referring to the rubber feet that attach to the bottom of the seat and rest on the frame underneath) as one of mine was missing, and the others are looking pretty worn.

Of all things, I'm having the damndest time getting the stupid rubber grommets/nubs/whatever you call them, to insert properly into the seat. Tried twisting/turning, tried pushing hard on the feet, but even if I manage to get them in, they pop right back out with the lightest touch.

Is there a trick to getting these things to pop in and stay on properly? I'm pretty much considering using glue or silicone or something to hold the feet on, as I know I'll wind up losing at least one of these things...

Like I said, it's silly, but annoying nonetheless.

Put a little silicon grease, or even vaseline, on the nubs.

Line the pad up and press hard, or even give a whack with a hammer opposite the location of the nubs.

The pads are made of tough stuff. You won't hurt them or the seat pan.

cushions into under-seat body

push by hand after lining them up
then
one "rubber point" at a time
push like the dickens with the point of a phillips #2 (I think) screwdriver

I never used a hammer

they don''t go in easily, thats for sure

this took the vibrations out of my seat (the P.O. had removed the cushions as he was shorter than I)

I haven't yet found the glue that'll stick to them.

I just replaced mine. I just put a little dish soap on the nub and then
push and turn. They went in pretty easy that way. They went far enough
to lock into place
