Q:The 75lb load capacity is that per. glide.
by|Dec 22, 2018

Answer This Question

A:  I do believe it is. We used them on a microwave stand I built and fully loaded it weighs about 200 lbs. and the glides are holding up just fine.

by|Dec 23, 2018

    A:  I suppose some engineers computed that number. It is probably 75 lb per glide. Otherwise they would be useless under a table or chair. It seems reasonable. The feet and screw will definitely hold more than that. If the plastic nut inserts wear out over time you could easily replace them with T-nuts and they would be even more sturdy.

    by|Oct 7, 2020

      A:  The weight capacity is not on the packaging. From the appearance I suspect that it is per glide.

      by|Sep 18, 2019

        A:  Would say total of four. They are plastic feet, and while thick, probably crack or break under 100lb load.

          Q:Would 8 of these be sufficient to hold a bar?Looking for something to level it out and since the load capacity is 75lb’s i figured 8 would be enough

          A:  I used them to level two statues. They are sturdy and they are easy to adjust to achieve a level product. My statues were not over 50 pounds each so weight was not an issue. Using 8 if them to support the heavy weight should work well in my opinion.

          by|Aug 3, 2018

            A:  If the bar weighs less than 600 lbs. I think they would be fine.

              A:  These are three part: anchor, stem and foot.

              by|Jul 28, 2018

                A:  Yes you drill a hole, pound in the anchor and then thread the padded stem. I did 40 chairs (160 stems) in 2 hours. Every few months I replace stems. Heavy use .

                      A:  Can you get a metal threaded socket, as I find the plastic splits too easily?

                      by|Jul 8, 2019

                        A:  Yes you will receive the metal stem with the pad on the bottom and the sleeve that the metal stem fits into.

                        by|Aug 2, 2018

                          A:  These come exactly as pictured. Plastic insert with threaded metal stem. Very simple to use

                          by|Jul 28, 2018

                            A:  It comes with everything pictured: Felt base and stem, and threaded socket. All you need to do is drill the appropriate size hole for the socket and you are good to go.

                              A:  I would presume this is 75 lbs each. I have them on all my 4 leg chairs and I weigh way more than 75lbs and they are just fine after a years use.

                                  I put them under the base of a table that I just built. It weighs about 75 pounds. I don't trust the plastic threads on the inserts to hold up, so I threw away and replaced them with T-nuts. So far I haven't need to add jam nuts. The table is very stable, doesn't rock. The price was very reasonable.

                                  These were easy to install, and work as intended. However, fairly quickly one of the felt pads fell off, hence the 3 stars and not 5. Fortunately it was a quick fix with a dab of super glue. I would still recommend these, just keep the super glue handy! Also, it's my own fault for not measuring, but if I had it to do all over, I would get the smaller ones, these are bigger than our chair legs so they stick out on all sides which looks a little goofy, just thought I'd mention it.

                                  Excellent choice to protect floors
                                  I have tried several types of scuff guards but these worked so well we put them on all of our chairs. The chairs glide and don’t scuff our hardwood floors. The felt pads stay put. I used a 11/32 wood drill bit that is recommended and tapped in the plastic inserts with a hammer. The stems screw into the inserts by hand. A hand blower or vacuum comes in handy after the drill work. Marking the drill bit to insure you get the proper depth (length of metal stem) helps. Blowing the saw dust off before pulling the drill bit out helps keep the dust from refilling the hole. It takes me about 10 minutes per chair to install these after I get set up. I have provided a few photos I hope they help answer any questions.

                                  Just had our floor refinished and wanted to protect it. These pads are easy to install, although I should have drilled the chair pad holes differently. Lesson learned and hint to others.

                                  Never realized that these would make such a difference. Our chairs now slide easily over our hardwood and with no scratches. Took less than 5 minutes to install on all four chairs and the table legs. Because these screw in, they don't fall off. Wish I had bought these sooner. Will soon be on all of our items with legs.
