Rubber Tyres Swivel Braked 50mm Pack of 4
Good little runners
They're castors, what more can I say?
Well, actually, they're pretty good castors. They run smoothly due to the rubber tyres, and the locking mechanism is good - it appears to stop both the wheel spinning, but also stops the castor from turning, so a cabinet mounted on these won't squirm around.
They're also pretty shallow - which is useful in terms of maximising the usable storage height of a DIY cabinet, whilst keeping the overall height down. In fact, this purchase is specifically for replacing some wheels on a cabinet in order to reduce the top surface height.
They're not exactly cheap, but still reasonable value given the quality.

Did the job
I have a large cupboard to strip and repaint. 4 castors with brakes and an offcut of plywood have made a stable platform to jockey the cupboard round the garage as I work on it.

These braked rubber wheeled castors, really good. Time will tell whether they last the test of time. Smooth operation under load I found.
Would have been happier if the price was a bit less, but still probably a fair price.

A good set of casters, nice and strong - exactly what I was looking for.
