We need replacement casters. In order to know if these will fit we need to know the bolt hole pattern, not the size of the plate.

A 3" diameter wheel with a 3 1/8" high load? I doubt that. Either the wheel is smaller, or the load height is higher.
Asked by: cadcoke5
The floor clearance is 3.125'' when installed. The wheel is 3'' in diameter and the overall height is 3.75''.

3 in. Polypropylene Swivel Plate Caster with 210 lb. Load Rating is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great design, very flexible. I have installed dozens of these throughout my mothers house on all kinds of furniture. My mother is on the edge of her “elderly” years, so I wanted to make the furniture she frequently moves (tables, cabinets, benches, etc etc) easier to move around. These made it very easy to do so. A nice thing about cabinets, or Kitchen islands, is that they usually have a hallow bottom. What this means is you can install wheels like this, with only an inch (for carpet) or a quarter inch) for tile/hard surfaces, hanging farther out. In other words, you don’t even see the wheels, and the furniture item is magically easy to move. I have used this in a lower cabinet with a counter top in the laundry room and it works great. I’ve used this in a Kitchen Island as well. The Island with the Marble counter top, Dozens of pans, utensils, etc etc, is easily near 1000 pounds, and 8 of these hold it up, and support it effortlessly. The smooth movement (including rolling, and spinning) make it seem like a 50 pound object when pushing it. It’s a world of difference. Not to mention they don’t cut up the tile as simply sliding such a large and heavy object would. I’ve used this in plenty of other objects on both hardwood and carpet surfaces, and it’s great. As far as price, it seems high, but these things are constructed with pure steel, and dense rubber/plastic (on the wheels) They are built to last, built to stay smooth in movements, and considering the amount of metal and precision moldings, the price is actually fair. The parts consist of the wheel, a bolt+nut to hold it in place, the mount for the wheel, the plate to fasten it to an object, roughly a dozen ball bearings between the plate and the wheel mount, and a large rivet to hold them together. Also grease in the ball bearings to keep them smooth. The wheels with the side locks are best for hardwood surfaces. Carpet surfaces they usually settle into the carpet and don’t move, where as hardwood, they are easily movable. Especially if you have kids, large dogs, or high traffic areas that will likely have creatures of some kind bumping into them. Usually however, you don’t need all of the wheels to have the locks on them. If you have 4 wheels, only two of them need the locks. If you have 8, only maybe 4 of them need locks, saves a few bucks. Note, these are best fastened with bolts+nuts. The holes on them are 1/4th inch wide, much wider then a traditional screw. I highly recommend using “Tee Nuts” if using these in furniture. Much nicer and flatter surface then Hex Nuts. For more info on “Tee Nuts” Type “Tee Nuts” into the home depot search engine and you will see 12 different sizes. I have a detailed review that you will find on any of the 12 Tee Nut pages. Maintenance. There really is no maintenance in these things. They are built very strong; I doubt they’d ever break, unless you simply wore down the wheels, which would require plenty of miles of use, and on rough surfaces. Aside from that, if it is in a dirty environment (maybe a workshop, or outdoors) the ball bearings are the most likely part to be effected. In which case, just get a synthetic grease to keep them lubricated. Maybe WD-40 or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for furniture dolly I used this swivel caster along with rigid ones to make a dolly used to move a large cabinet that I was building. This allowed me to move it from sanding area to painting area with ease.

This 3 inch swivel plate caster with a Polypropylene wheel, rated at 210 lbs. is well built and appears to have the rated capacity. The swivel contains ball bearings in a 1 3/4 inch diameter raceway and it swivels smoothly. There is no seal on the swivel bearings, so a clean environment will suit the caster better. The wheel rolls smoothly as well and is very close to perfect round. The mounting base is a 3 inch x 4 1/8 inch rectangle. I would have preferred for the wheel to have less side clearance between it and the support, but this is a minor issue

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need a heavy duty caster for a project? This is the one you need to buy. The base is 3-1/2" X 2-1/2", which makes it large enough to mount on a large object or a 2 X 4. The metal is thick and will support the weight rating without any problems. The ball bearing swivel moves freely and should continue to do so even while under the rated weight load. The 3" polypropylene wheel will provide a smooth roll on virtually any surface. A double set of ball bearings are built into the orange wheeled caster, providing greater movement when the wheel is under a load.

The caster itself rotates freely and silently, which makes it turn very nicely. The wheel rotates smoothly and moves pretty effortlessly. The mounting plate is heavy duty construction with four bolt holes (bolts not included). This is a pretty heavy duty unit and works very nicely when I move my cabinet.

The 3" polypropylene caster is on a bolt running thru the middle with a lock nut on one end so it could be replaced if needed. The plate that it is attached to has four pre-drilled holes in it and should match your existing holes or drill new holes in the item that it is to be attached. There were 4 casters on my dolly and after it went thru the hurricane they needed replacing. This was an exact match for what was on the dolly. This is a high quality caster and was an easy replacement

Quite appropriate for their load rating of 210 pounds. The swivel moves easily and would benefit from a dab of grease or oil. They install easily with just 4 screws or bolts through the top plate. They may also be welded to an appropriate metal part to make it mobile. Be sure to remove the sink plating/galvanizing before applying any heat as the zink will vaporize creating fumes that can cause an illness.

The metal base and wheel support is very sturdy steel. The swivel unit operates via small roller bearings and worked very smoothly. Having those features in mind you must know that the wheel and supporting metal assembly are rated at 210 pounds (per wheel). I think the unit might support more weight because it is very well made. ...BUT common sense must be used when attaching to whatever your project is to assure safety.
