locking swivel chair

exactly what it sounds like...
  [vote for,

urbanmatador sitting at desk, typing. cat suddenly jumps on lap, causing sudden unexpected swivel of chair, leading to displaced items from desk all over the place.

this seems simple enough to bake. i've found adjustible desk chairs in which every other feature is lockable (the back tilt, the height, the lumbar support) but none of them allow you to lock the swivel.

locking wheels might be nice too.

       I'd like to see a whole new round of slapstick routines to go with your new chair...

       Seen wheel locks.

       Hmm...the momentum of a jumping cat causes sudden chair swivel leading to destruction? either you need to eat more or you need to put your cat on a diet.

       Lions are cats.

       Bulldozers are Cats. Meercats aren't.

       Yet rabbits are generally bare.

       [freefall] you haven't met my cat. not even my cat. just a neighbor's cat who spends a lot of time in my basement. skinny as a rail, but *fast*...

       [urbanmatador] you might need one of these, <linky>.

       It’s not the mass of the cat so much as the momentum that causes the problem. Clearly you need to increase the chair’s moment of inertia.

       (Dr Curry, where have you seen wheel locks for chairs?)
