Answer

Hello Gulam, this is a common question. Your total load rating depends on how many casters you are spreading the load across. For example, if you have an office chair with 5 legs, then 5 of these casters can handle a 400lb distributed load (80lbs x 5 = 400lbs).

no, this is a very smooth design and the only way it would scratch the floor is if it was worn out or the mounting of the wheel failed. great design.

Not quite. Whenever you lean any direction in the chair, it will put more load on the wheels under the direction you are leaning, more the further you lean. I would conservatively derate them to 250lbs total per chair for that reason, and if your chair itself was formerly capable of more than that due to a limit other than the casters, yet you were putting more than 250 lbs of load on the chair, this seems like it could be why the old casters have failed, that you need a more heavy duty chair that takes heavier casters.

Purchased 4 of these for a twin bed frame. They did not lock in like the originals (lost many years ago) but they make the bed easy to move for cleaning or to change sheets.

The EVERBILT light duty hooded swivel casters are functional. The ball shaped wheel makes rolling around pretty easy but the quality is lacking. One of the casters was shipped to me with a good sized dent in the rubber wheel which has not impacted the function of the ball stem caster but looks lousy. I believe that this caster should not have been packaged up and shipped out. I also believe that whether you are replacing casters that are worn out or putting the casters on something new the metal cups should come with each caster.

The caster itself is great, the only thing that would make it better, if the sleeves were included. Had to use the old ones. :(

These casters tend to lose their ball bearings. I have had to replace several. I buy them because they are a perfect fit for my chairs. When the ball bearings are in, they work fine.
