If your futon breaks, you can get replacement parts from Futon Planet. Although Futon Planet does not have every part to repair your old futon, they do carry a lot of important hard to find replacement futon parts.
One of the most common things to break on a wooden futon frame is a part called a “glide” or sometimes also called a “futon roller.” If this broke your futon, conisider yourself luck. These parts are easily replaced in most cases. Futon glides vary in price, but it is likely the better quality single sided futon rollers cost about $20.00. Oblong futon glides and double sided futon rollers go for about the same price. Although, futon rollers may not cost much to make, most dealers have a shortage which drives the market price up.
Futon hinges can break on metal frames. This are a bit more costly to replace and can cost anywhere from $60-$80 to replace a set. If only one hinge is broken, it is still recommended you replace both to make sure they work together properly.
