The middle piece of my office chair has cracked, and has made the seat all wobbly. I didn't want to buy a whole new expensive chair, so I looked online for a replacement part. Thankfully there are a bunch available on Amazon for $20 that fit most office chairs. Has anybody ever have to buy one of these? Are they worth it?

I've never bought office chair parts, but I have purchased multiple different mechanical parts for tractors and such from Amazon. I've noticed that quality is hit or miss on stuff that is incredibly cheap (i.e. Chinese knock-off 'quality'). There's no rhyme or reason, but sometimes the reviews are telling.

Shopping for cheapness seems to be like playing a slot machine.

That part I looked up had really good reviews. I'm sure it will work great!
