Q: WHAT TYPE OF SCREWS SHOULD I USE TO MOUNT MY LAZY SUSAN BEARING?
A: For our 3 inch, 4 inch, and 6 inch Lazy Susan bearings, Triangle recommends drilling a 5/32” hole and using a #6 self-tapping screw. For our 9 inch and 12 inch Lazy Susan bearings, we recommend drilling a 3/16” hole and using a #8 self-tapping screw.
Q: CAN MY LAZY SUSAN BEARING BE USED OUTDOORS?
A: Triangle’s lazy susan bearings are made from galvanized steel, which has a layer of zinc coating. This helps to prevent premature rust and corrosion allowing for protection during exposure to outdoor elements. In addition to the standard galvanization, Triangle also offers additional zinc plating and black powder coat options as well as stainless steel ball bearings.

Q: WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY LAZY SUSAN BEARING GETS DIRTY AND STOPS WORKING?
A: Should your Lazy Susan bearing get dirty or start turning more difficult, simply flush thoroughly with hot soapy water, rinse, and dry. If needed, a small amount of non-detergent oil or lithium ion grease can be applied using a syringe or Q-tip.
Q: WHAT IF I NEED MY DISPLAY TO PAUSE OR STOP AT A CERTAIN PLACE?
A: If you need your display to pause, Triangle offers a “detent”. This will cause the display to pause at a certain degree, and then with a small amount of force, you can continue to turn the Lazy Susan bearing. To have your Lazy Susan stop at a certain place, Triangle’s offers a “stop”. This allows you to rotate the Lazy Susan and once it hits the stop, it can only be rotated back in the other direction.
