I think you may struggle... I looked for a generic plate for my Korum Chair and there was nothing that would fit, other than Korum's own which was extortionately priced... seems all generic plates are built to one size only... even the adjustables

Arry. You could be right, 20mm seems the normal. I've seen one for £89 but its much too much to spend just on a footplate, as much as I want one. I'm told waterline did one, but they seem to have all gone now.

How wide does the footplate need to be and how would it fit to the box legs?

Like you say, I've looked and could only find a waterline one that would fit 25mm round and be width adjustable but they don't sell them anymore.

I fear your only option may be to buy a Koala Universal and see if you an modify/change the fixing to fit a 25mm leg.

Maybe using something like a Rive D25 clip on ring (part number 708398)

My reservation would be though whether it would withstand the loading on a footplate.

Fair comment but a little digging to find the width of the footplate will give it a 👍or 👎an email to the vendor to ask them to measure them. It might just pay off @carphauler

Ask Koala to make you one that fits 25mm legs?
It just means drilling 25mm holes and everything else stays the same.
They might even start making them if they see there is interest for that size.

I don’t know what anyone else’s experience is but I bought the Koala one for my Octoplus seatbox and it wouldn’t take my weight (103kg). It bent like a banana and went straight to the tip.

Silly question - what's your budget for a footplate?

Also, new or used?

Someone selling a sliding Preston footplate here, all depends on how far apart your legs are to if it will fit though...
