Stainless Steel Stem Caster
“If you want help making a selection, call: 800-501-3808”
Threaded Stem Casters should NOT be used as a “Leveling Device”! Capacity ratings are based on the weight being directly on the top of the swivel bearing, not somewhere above it on the threaded stem.

We do NOT include mounting Hardware.
Use the Polyolefin ( Industrial Plastic ) wheel for “Standing Loads”. Polyolefin wheels eliminate the possiblilty of a flat spot developing on the surfiace of polyurethane and rubber tires when the weight exceeds 2/3 of the rated capacity when the object is left parked most of the time
If a caster failure occurs it is almost always because of misuse or abuse. It has been very rare that a product failed because of faulty material or poor workmanship. The following are examples of things that we do NOT want you to do:
- Dragging the wheel sideways.
- Shock or Impact caused by dropping the load instead of setting it down on the castered equipment.
- Improper Installation such as:
A. Rigid casters not installed parallel to one another.
B. Swivel casters not installed parallel to the floor.
C. Using less than 4 bolts to attach the mounting plate.
D. Distortion of the swivel bearing when attaching the mounting plate due to welding improperly.
- Exceeding the rated capacity of the wheel or caster.
- Exceeding a rolling speed of 3 MPH.
- The build up of heat caused by continuous operation causing tire separation.
TB Pedal on side of wheel locks on top of the the tire. The – TB Wheel Brake locks only the wheel, not the swivel.
Wheel Brakes are not designed to hold on inclines.
Available Threaded Stem Sizes:
We do not provide the nuts to attach threaded stem casters. Threaded Stem Casters should NOT be used as a “Leveling Device”! The weight should be supported by the top of the swivel bearing of the caster, not somewhere above it on the threaded stem.
