Questions & Answers


The 75lb load capacity is that per. glide.

Asked by David December 22, 2018

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.

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

Asked by Mark July 28, 2018

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

Does this come with the metal stems of would those have to be purchased separately?

Asked by Christian July 27, 2018

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

Is the &%lb load capacity for each individual stem or 75lb total for all 4 of them?

Asked by Christian July 27, 2018

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.

Can these be purchased in-store, if so, where in S. Okla. City?

Asked by Greg February 18, 2018

Go online and look at the product and it will say if it is available at your store or if you have to order it.

How high can the leg be raised and what's the size of the screw(1/4, 3/8, 6,8,10)?

Asked by Lance October 9, 2017

I suspect that 1" is the maximum that the leg can be safely raised, based upon the depth suggested for the drilled hole. The glide is not that deep, so the bottom of the hole would be the stop for the threaded stem. The screw is a 6 mm machine screw. But, it is designed to screw into the plastic glide sleeve which requires an 11/32 drill hole 1"deep. I hope this helps you.

What size thread on the adjustable screw? Where to purchase?

Asked by hank September 22, 2017

The screws are fixed into the base of the glides--buying separate screws would not do you any good.

What is the total length of the threaded stem?

Asked by Rich April 25, 2017

One inch.

How high can I raise the furniture?

Asked by Beth July 13, 2016

I would not extend the felt pad more than a 1/2" The thread stem is 1" long, so it needs to be threaded in the insert by at least a 1/2" Remember these glides are used a levelers.

whatis the od of the plastic insert? Does the insert come with glide?

Asked by jmajca June 21, 2016

Yes, the insert comes with the glide. I don't know the OD of the insert, but you need to use a 11/32" drill bit for drilling the hole.

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.

Sturdy and Rugged
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.
