Rubber Wheel Casters are popular due to their large size. Once installed they raise furniture over 2". This old-fashioned design is great on tables and other furniture. When used on chairs mobility may be limited if chairs are occupied, as heavier weights may constrain movement. Some find it is best to roll chair when vacant. Ball bearing swivel assemblies enable casters to swivel independently of caster fork. Easy to install: insert "grip neck" sleeve into base of furniture leg, slide caster stem up into sleeve until it snaps securely in place.
If Replacing lost, damaged or broken casters: all casters on a piece of furniture should be uniform in height, style and appearance to insure proper function.

Installing Grip Neck Stem Casters
Grip-neck stem casters use a steel sleeve to hold them in place. Sleeve inserts in furniture leg. Caster slides up into sleeve and snaps in place. This style of caster became popular with the industrial revolution around the mid 1800's.
Furniture leg has socket sleeve inserted in base of leg. Caster stem slips into socket sleeve and snaps in place. Caster is held in place by stem - socket sleeve connection.
Some vintage and antique furniture has a socket sleeve already in place. New casters may or may-not snap into old sleeves. Old sleeves can be removed and replaced with new sleeves.
New installation requires a 3/8" x 1 5/8" hole drilled in bottom of leg for socket sleeve.
