Casters are a combination of several components (wheel, rig/fork, bearing, and more), each of which come in different varieties and sizes. Therefore, a caster can be comprised of a near infinite number of component options. Different types of component options work well depending on several different factors. In this section we go through some of the major factors that help you determine what type of caster you need.

Important considerations in caster selection include:

 

Application

 

The type of application you’re putting casters on is extremely important. For example, you probably don’t want to use casters for an auto rotisserie on a coffee table. Below are some things to keep in mind when choosing the right casters for an application.

How much weight will you be carrying?

How do you plan to move items with the casters?

Pushing? Pulling? Towing?

Do you need casters purely for aesthetics? If so, our CC Vintage line is for you!
