Product Description

Easily convert your rolling swivel office chair to a stationary swivel office chair with this set of 5 nylon glides/stoppers. Please note that the glides will sit the chair slightly lower than regular 50mm caster (wheels). The pins on these glides will fit most office chair bases: the stem diameter is 7/16" (11mm) and the stem length is 7/8" (22mm). The 38mm collar works well with the width of regular office chair bases. No special tool is necessary for the replacement job. Just pull out the casters of your chair and push these glides into their place. WARNING: Replace all 5 casters: using casters and glides together in a swivel chair can make the chair unsafe. These CHCM office chair glides have been tested by F.I.R.A. to meet or exceed the industry safety standard. High quality is assured, and we offer a 30-days money-back satisfaction guarantee.

After ruining a carpet with our computer chair we changed the carpet and used cable ties to hold plastic cups onto the chair casters. After a couple of weeks of them rotating round the wheel and breaking we eventually found these. And they are a godsend. They stop you "motoring along" while sitting on the chair but still allow the chair to be dragged easily across the carpet. And the marks disappear quickly if you tend to move the chair often. Our carpet should last a LOT longer.

A few points to notice. Our chair had 5 casters so I was pleased to find these in a pack of 5.

I almost didn't buy them because the Amazon product description said the Stem Diameter was 11.7mm and my chair stems were 10.8 - 10.9mm. With the option of drilling out the chair fixing I ordered them and they fitted fine - and the stem on them was ALSO 10.8-10.9mm. So, is the description a bit off or is it my electronic vernier gauge?

The only other thing to note is the height of them. My chair ended up just over an inch lower which since it was fully extended and the monitor, keyboard and mouse positions were on fixed furniture this was the only disadvantage.

So, all in all - a great product, sturdy, and reasonably priced - just what we were looking for (almost - all we need now is to find a slightly higher set).

Delivery was also prompt.

The description mentions the product 'may make the chair slightly lower'. What it doesn't mention is that many office chairs have a center column, and when the castors are replaced with stoppers, the middle column is now lower than the stoppers and the chair is no longer usable.

I brought these for an Aeron, and suffered this exact issue. The stoppers aren't usable for my chair - I need 'castor height stoppers'. Oh well, its a cheap replacement.

I think the product would be better if the description made it clear that low-height stoppers may not work at all on some chairs.

The glides are easy to fit and are perfect for wooden/laminate floors.
I have added some self adhesive felt pads on the bottom for added protection and slide.
A tip for future buyers: buy the taller glides (castor height) as you can always drop the height with the gas lift.
If you buy the standard height and the chair is too low you are stuck!

I've had an executive-type office chair for a few years now, which has managed to get through at least half a dozen castors so far. They break because the metal spindle is offset from the centre, which puts a strain on the plastic. Searching for yet more replacements after the last one went, I came across these, which would appear to be just the ticket.

As the last reviewer said, you lose 1/2" or so in height, and it's obviously not so easy to glide around the floor, but they are a lot stronger than wheels, and will probably last the lifetime of the chair.

Recommended.

Castors on my chair have splintered edges on my my new wood floor. I wondered how I could make a glider but then searched Google and low and behold. Dont glide on my floor but much sturdier and hopefully wont damage like the castors. Well done.

3 Star review is perhaps a little harsh as I didn't do my homework and nothing led me to believe that it would fit IKEA chairs, just wanted to put a review here to warn others who may be considering to fit to IKEA office chairs.

After a couple of near misses with our cat having crept up and laid behind the computer chair almost getting run over, I decided to check and see if there was something with which to swap out the casters and found this product.

Eureka! Little to say really, except that fitting was simply a case of clicking the old casters out and pushing the new ones in. Took about 45 seconds. The chair is now firm on the carpet and can only be slid by a great deal of effort or standing up, either of which would give the dozy cat warning to get clear.

Couldn't be more happier with these. Used to replace the wheels on an expensive office chair (the wheels would make a "crack" sound when I leaned back), and they do the job perfectly. The wheels came out easy enough with a pair of pliers, and these just push right on in with a snug fit. Delivery was quicker than expected at just 2 days, which was an added bonus.
