Select Your Risers

Step 1.

Watch the ‘How to’ video and then continue the steps below.

Step 2.

DETERMINE BEST TOP POCKET SIZE: Measure your furniture legs at the BOTTOM where they touch the floor.  This is the best POCKET SIZE.Terminology

For example, if your furniture leg bottom is 2.0″ x 1.0″, then the 2″ x 2″ pocket is the best fit.  Note, many legs are round or trianglular and that is not a problem to use a square pocket riser.

Step 3.

DETERMINE BEST LIFT HEIGHT: Face your furniture (sofa or chair) and measure the distance from your knee to the top of cushion. This is the best LIFT HEIGHT.  See image.

Correct Height

Note, the cushion top can be slightly depressed, like you are sitting in it.

Step 5.

SELECT YOUR POCKET TYPE.  For a sectional with legs close to each other, get some “U” pockets. Got a flat bottom dresser? Get some “L” pockets.  Square pockets are the most popular, but here are the choices.  

Step 6.
