Caster strength and stability is directly related to correct installation. 

 

Install Caster on furniture leg:

  • Grip Neck Casters
  • Drill hole: 3/8" x 1 5/8"  in bottom of furniture leg. Insert caster-sleeve. Gently tap in place,.so that teeth permeate wood.
  • Older furniture may have old caster-sleeve still in place. New replacement wood wheel casters may or may-not snap into old sleeves. Old sleeves can be removed and replaced with new sleeves. (see bottom of page)
  • Once caster-sleeve is in place: push caster-stem into sleeve until it snaps into place.
  • For smooth mobility and serviceable action castersmust be properly installed.
  • A note about restorations: mixing old and new casters, on one piece of furniture, rarely provides an acceptable outcome.
