Sorry folks--I never write reviews, but after struggling to get two 'socks' on, I have to warn--it is way too difficult to get covers on. In fact, my forearms are so fatigued, that I can barely use the keyboard to warn others. Get a product that has the carpeted side manufactured on and save yourself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich worked great!
I had to move a heavy king bed that was sitting on a deep pile carpet. I didn't want to disassemble the bed. Lifting a single corner and yanking did no good. A buddy and I yanked 2 corners to no avail.
I bought the 4 pack and slipped the first disc under a leg to discover there were actually 6 legs! Oops. I placed the discs at the 4 corners and found the bed moved quite easily. Amazing.
When I slid the bed back and removed the disks I found that the bed legs left deep depressions in the discs. I do wonder whether repeated use of the discs will cause significant wear. But truthfully I don't know if they will ever be used by me again.
The disks are a huge back saver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whatIthink works great on hardwood floors, no scratching
I put in hardwood floors and did not want anything to scratch them and I do have to move furniture around to clean. I put the sock covered glides on the discs and can move everything, even a fully loaded refrigerator while we were working in that room! only took one person to move it. these work great. every now and then use the wand tool on your vacuum to clean them. Home Depot had the best price for this product too. I wish they sold extra socks!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worker Not good
"Socks" kept coming off base so basically product works only half the time. The rest of the time you spend putting the socks back on. Also very hard to get on. Spent more energy and effort getting them on than moving the file cabinets themselves. Had to resort to tire inner tube installation method of using two screwdrivers to pry the sock on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wood These are fantastic!!!!!
We have used numerous things over the years to move heavy furniture. Sliders work OK for most furniture but do tend to scratch the floor if furniture is very heavy. We needed to move a very heavy pool table (900 lbs.) and could not budge it. We bought some huge sliders and jacked the legs up enough to slide them under the legs. They flattened the sliders and pool table still did not budge! We purchased these from Home Depot as they were guaranteed to move 1000 lbs. and repeated the process. My husband and I (both in our 70's) were able to move the table across the room and reposition it several times. I thought I would be returning these for my money back but instead intend to go buy more to have on hand! They really do the job and the heavy cushions should protect wood floors as well, much better than the plastic sliders.
Some commented they were no good and difficult to place the pad on. Don't know what they were trying to move or if they have children. This will easily move up to 1000 lbs. and you put the pads on just as you would put socks on children. Turn them over, inside out and they slip on easily. You then turn them up over the edges of the plastic disc. Great product!

Not sure if these work well because it's taken me over 30 minutes to put a cover on JUST ONE. Poor design and not worth the effort. Best to go with something already assembled.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeepGirl Worked well
Needed to move a full sized sofa bed on a hardwood floor to remodel a room. These worked well, and I liked the protectalls to keep the movealls from hurting the hardwood. Hardest part about them was putting the protectalls on. What a pain! They are really tight. But once on, they stayed on and served their propose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by m3rdpwr Very good.
I've had these on all my furniture for over 10 years.
I placed them under my sectional couch because it's always getting moved or separated for different occasions.
They slide easy and have held up very well.
Warning, if you have dirty floors or track in sand or dirt, be sure to clean the floor before moving the furniture. I slide the couch once without knowing some sand had been kicked to the edge of the slider and caused a scratch on the nice hardwood floor.
I also recommend removing the sock every so often and clean it off or hand wash it when needed.
I own several sets for my sectional couch, large kitchen table and other furniture.
It can be expensive initially, but well worth saving your hard wood floor.
They price has come down $1-3 a pack of four since I initially bought them.
