FAQ: What is a domestic swivel?

You may have noticed on most of our bucket bar stool listings, we offer two different types of swivels: imported and domestic. Or if there’s only one option on the listing, it’s the domestic swivel. So why is that? 

Domestic swivels are the more durable and long-lasting solution when choosing your swivel type. These swivels are constructed to last up to one million rotations by using nylon threads in the swivel mechanism. In comparison, imported swivels last between 60,000 and 100,000 rotations and use ball bearings to swivel.  

We also offer a warranty on the domestic swivel option, protecting your purchase and buckets for a longer amount of time. 

With our premium bucket bar stools, the domestic swivel is included, making it a higher-grade, more durable product. But because swivel mechanisms take the brunt of wear and tear, this is also an upgraded option on our more basic bucket models. We want to give you the option of investing where it matters with your furniture! 

Bucket bar stools are some of the most comfortable seating options you could provide your customers with, why not make sure your stools will last for many customers to come? 

If you have a question about our swivel options, bucket bar stools, or any of our furniture, please give our customer care team a call at 800-986-5352. We’d be more than happy to go over the right options for your establishment with you!
