Pacer Hooded Caster - Set of 5 Bright Chrome 50mm Diameter Locking Caster | 5/16" x 1-1/2" Grip Neck Stem | 300 lbs load Capacity per set of 5
The Pacer Series is a sleek modern looking caster that comes with a 5/16" x 1-1/2" Grip Neck Stem. Grip Neck Stem Casters are commonly referred to as wood stem casters. These casters are made to mount in wood furniture. Grip neck Stem Casters almost always need to be used with a metal wood socket before installing in wooded furniture. These metal sockets have teeth at the base with a hollow tube that is meant to be inserted inside the wood to allow you to mount the casters. The spikes on the bottom of the socket are meant to be hammered into the furniture after the hole is drilled into the furniture for the socket to be inserted appropriately. After the metal socket is inserted into the furniture, you will use these Grip Neck Stem casters as seen below to insert into the metal socket, these casters will pop into the sockets, and no further adjustments will be needed. Then your furniture will now be safely outfitted with a furniture caster. Long story short, These casters need a socket that would be permanently fixed to the unit you are planning to mount the caster to. This will allow the grip neck stem caster to quickly and safely pop into place.
