Caring For Your Sliding Transfer Bench

Caring For Your Sliding Transfer Bench

While Eagle Health products are made to endure daily use and the test of time, there are a number of ways to care for your bench to ensure that you have an optimal experience every time. To keep you informed and feeling your best, here are some care tips from our very own Eagle Health Supplies professionals.

General Cleaning & Upkeep

We highly recommend wiping down your chair or bench after each use to keep away any soap scum, mineral deposits or watermarks. It’s simple and quick, and all you need is a soft cloth, warm water, and mild soap. You may also use a soft cloth and any non-bleach cleaner. (Bleach will discolor your seat.) Make sure you get your legs, sliding rails, and seat when wiping down, and please do not use bleach to clean your bench.

Sliding Rails

Our sliding rails are made of lightweight, high-strength aluminum. They’re rustproof and polished, but sometimes a natural build up of that pesky soap scum or mineral deposits can get in the way of smooth gliding. When you’ve wiped down the rails, spray WD-40 on them and your seat should be able to slide with ease.

If you’re experiencing difficulty with the locks at the ends of the rails, spray lubricant on the brass push pins. It should loosen the pin and keep your seat secure.

Swivel Plate

If our patented swivel plate under the seat ever gets stuck, please make sure the red lever is released after you’ve pushed it down. Similar to the sliding rails, you can also make sure it’s well-kept by spraying WD-40 on the brass pin in between the swivel plates every so often. This will help eradicate any built up soaps or minerals.


Some of our benches have raised cut-outs, which mean there’s a plate beneath the seat opening. (For example: Item # 77663 Swivel Sliding with Cut-Out & #75233 Swivel Chair with Cut-Out.) Be sure to rinse the shallow opening and wipe it down with a soft cloth. This will keep your bench clean and all the better for your comfort and ease.
