Cushion Type for a Harvard Pool Table

Cushion Type for a Harvard Pool Table

What kind of cushions does a Harvard pool table take?

I bought a Harvard pool table and I am trying to find out what kind bumpers it takes.

Again, it is an 8-foot Harvard pool table.

Please help!

    Ideally you would take one of the old rubber cushions with you and pop into your local billiard supply shop. They will be able to tell you for sure.

    But if that isn't feasible, here is a guide showing common pool table cushion profile measurements. You'll need a precision measuring device.


    K66 cushions are probably the most common pool table cushion profile used in modern pool tables (e.g. 40 years old or less). Some lower-end pool table use U23 cushions. Don't try to base it just on look alone.

    Also see below, from a respected pool table restoration company:

    Only one profile of cushion will give the correct nose height on a pool table. By installing the wrong profile, cushions will give an incorrect nose height/contact point and will impact the playability of your table.

    First determine that your nose height (contact point of cushion rubber where ball would hit) is 1 3/8” – 1 7/16” above table surface (if you have a standard pool table that uses 2 ¼” balls).

    If your cushion height falls within that range, then you need to replace cushions with same profile.

    Hope this helps.
