Plate Casters - Stem Casters - Rigid Casters - Swivel Casters - Locking Casters

Our 52 Series casters are the workhorses for most non-industrial applications. They are rugged enough to be used daily and a very popular caster for both consumer and business applications. They are available with 3", 3.5", 4" & 5" diameter wheels. We offer this caster with a large selection of mounting plates and stems to fit almost any project or replacement situation. Two different brake styles are available: a pedal on the side of the wheel which is our TLB Option and the other with the pedal on the top of the wheel, our PWB Option. We also offer the side pedal brake ( TLB ) on the rigid plate casters which has become a very popular option.
  • Capacity up to 350 lbs.
  • Case hardened double ball raceways provide extra capacity & durability.
  • Smooth staking of king pin.
  • Metal dust cover helps protect swivel raceway.
  • Optional integrated top lock brakes available on both swivel & rigid casters.
  • Thermal plastic rubber and polyurethane on polyolefin wheels do not mark floors. They come with a single precision ball bearing with integrated spanner bushing & thread guard or your choice of either ball bearings or the economical plain bore.
  • Both Polyurethane on Aluminum and Rubber on Aluminum wheels do not mark floors. They have Annular Ball bearings.
  • All of our ball bearing wheels roll exceptionally well.
  • Polyolefin Wheels are designed for storage racks which are not moved frequently. They can carry heavy loads without the fear of developing flat spots.

Hints
There is a lot of information on this page. Don't let it confuse you. Use this information to determine 3 things.
1. The type of wheel material that you need for your application. Put your mouse over the large wheel photo to see specifications.
2. The type of attachment that you require. Look for the diagrams of the plate sizes or stem sizes.
3. The size of the wheel and the style of the brake if you require a brake.

Most photos on this page can be enlarged by clicking on the photo.

The most important decision when selecting a general duty caster is the type of wheel material to use. The following are the factors to consider: Floor Material and Surface, Weight and use of object. Always choose more capacity in the casters than the maximum amount of weight that will be needed. For most objects, figure the weight of the object and divide by the number of casters that you will install. As a rule of thumb, add 20% to that amount for safety. For objects that will be sitting in one place for long periods of time, either a hard wheel should be used or a softer wheel with twice the capacity for the weight that it will hold. Softer wheel materials may be required to protect floors but those wheel materials have a tendency to develop flat spots from sitting in one place for long periods of time. By only using half of their capacity, the wheels should not develop flat spots.

Available Stems
Threaded Stems:
Our Threaded Stems are available in the following sizes: 1/2" - 13 x 1" Long, 1/2" - 13 x 1 1/2" Long, 1/2" - 13 x 2 11/16" Long,
5/8" - 11 x 1 3/4" Long and 3/4" - 10 x 1 3/4" Long.


If you are not sure what size thread you need: THE SAFEST THING TO DO IS TO TAKE THE CASTER OR GLIDE TO A HARDWARE STORE LIKE HOME DEPOT OR LOWES, ANY STORE WHERE THEY SELL NUTS AND BOLTS. Find a nut that fits on the threads and THAT is the size of your threads. This is a "Can't Miss" approach to the threaded stem problem.

Expandable Adapters:
The Expandable Adapter is designed to go inside of tubing. You must choose the appropriate size to fit the inside dimension of your tubing. The tubing can be either SQUARE or ROUND. Installation is easy. Simple turn the nut on the top of the stem until you get a snug fit while pushing the caster into the tube. Once it is inserted, turn the swivel bearing of the caster counter clockwise which will further expand the rubber inside the tubing. The actual working decimal dimensions of the adapters are:
Option: 27 ( 7/8" ) Option: 28 ( 1" ) Option: 29 ( 1 1/8" ) Option: 25 ( 1 3/8" ) Option: 26 ( 1 1/2" )
852" to .927" .928" to 1.029" 1.030" to 1.140" 1.360" to 1.425" 1.426" to 1.589"

Grip Ring Stem
Our Grip Ring stem measures .845 x 2 3/16" Long and is designed for Metro style racks. You can also use the Expandable Adapter Option 27 which is for 7/8" ID tubing if you are not sure of your inner dimension

Square Stem
Our Square Stem is really an Octagon to compensate for the inside radius of square tubing. It is 7/8" x 2" Long with a 5/16" crosshole drilled 1" up from the swivel bearing cap.

Pipe Thread Stem
Threaded for 3/4" Pipe Coupling. The Thread is 3/4" Long.
