I use four c-clamps attached to each corner to serve as legs(albeit short ones.) If the corners are finished pieces with no rush, I pad them to keep from damaging the wood. If the corners are filled in, I clamp two clamps on each side. Then I rush enough to be able to move the clamps closer to the corners and out of the way. I use a two by 3/4 inch piece of wood with a strip of felt glued to it to cushion and protect. If the rush gets smashed by the clamps, I spray a little water on them and the strands "fluff" back up. This works very well for me, but it probably also helps that I have a carpeted table on which I work.

You are so right much easier to adjust and unhook rehook, & I put some electric tape over the end that goes onto the table so they don't scratch up the work surface or screech as I spin the chair... more
