Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Felt piece is thin, not sturdy
I've used similar pads in the past many times. The felt on these pads was about 50% thinner than other pads. Also, the felt was crushed down pretty badly after hammering it in. This did not happen to other pads.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Drgrass Wasn't suitable in my application
Installed on hardwood kitchen chairs sitting on hardwood oak floors.
My initial fear was that the round-design fastener wouldn't hold, but that concern turned out to be a non-issue. The circular nails really hold. When the fasteners are replaced in time due to pad wear, it may be necessary to move the pads over so as to avoid positioning the fasteners in exactly the same holes.
The problem I experienced is that the felt necessarily collapses a bit during the nailing process. Now each felt pad sits in a plastic circular cup with raised edges that helps everything stay in place. Once the pad is nailed onto your chair, any reduction in the felt's thickness means there is less clearance between the plastic cup edges and your floor. I observed that it didn't matter how gently or aggressively I used a hammer, some collapsing of the felt was unavoidable.
This reduced felt pad thickness made the product risky enough. But if the bottom of your chair leg is not absolutely parallel to the floor, you'll find the plastic cup edges passing even closer to your floor's surface. In my case, the front legs ended up with maybe 2-3 mm of clearance between plastic edge and floor on all sides. But the rear chair legs had only about 1 mm of clearance at the front edge. It would only have taken a slight amount of pad wear to damage my floors. I decided to not risk it and decided on another solution.

I couldn't agree more with the previous reviewer. If you have a wooden piece of furniture then get these nail on gliders. One or two strikes with a hammer and it is in place and will stay there, not like the glue on gliders that fall off after a week or so.

Simply use a hammer and it goes right in. Works much better than the glued-on product.
