Total Locking Stem Casters - 57 Series - Zinc Plated Steel

This Stem Caster is ideal for applications that must be totally immobile when the caster brake is engaged. Its design ensures that the swivel of the caster and the wheel are locked at the same time. This is a very popular caster for both consumer and business applications. It is also very popular with Woodworkers as a workbench caster. They are available with 3", 4" & 5" diameter wheels.
  • Built-in total-lock one-step brake system locks down both the swivel and the wheel simultaneously.
  • Case hardened double ball raceways provide extra capacity & durability.
  • Large selection of stems including threaded, pipe threaded, expanding rubber for tubing, grip ring and round and square large solid steel stems.
  • 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.

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.
Used On:

Workbenches - Kitchen Islands - Shop Equipment - Movie & Soundstage Equipment - Hospital / Medical Equipment - Surface Planers -
Computer Equipment Stands - Mobile Workstations - Electronics & Diagnostic Equipment Carts - Welding Tables - Table Saws - Router Tables
Any item that must be held firmly in place while you are working on it.


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 and 1/2" - 13 x 2 11/16" Long. The 2 11/16" Stem is NOT threaded all the way down. The threads STOP approx 1" from the top of the swivel bearing so only the upper part of the stem is threaded.

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" )
