How to measure a Threaded Stem.
||We ask that you
follow this advise. Threaded stems can be complicated. They could be
American threads or Metric threads. This is where everyone gets in trouble. The
first thing everyone does is to take a ruler and measure the diameter and they
think that is the size of the stem. Well it MIGHT be but it MIGHT NOT be the
THE SAFEST THING TO DO
IS TO TAKE THE CASTER OR GLIDE TO A HARDWARE STORE LIKE HOME DEPOT, LOWES OR A
SIMILAR STORE WHERE THEY SELL NUTS AND BOLTS. They usually have a socket board
that you can thread your stem into and determine the correct thread type and
size. Could be American or metric thread . If they don't have a socket board
find a nut that threads on and write down that information. Don't be afraid to
ask for help and Do NOT try to measure it yourself unless you have thread
gauges or size verified nuts to try on the stem.
