Glide Installation Tips

 IMPORTANT Your furniture cup must have a 1-1/2” INSIDE diameter.
Force is generally required for a tight fit when installing these pressure fit glides.
It is common for the glides to appear too large to fit.
If the glides are not forced in and pressed against the sides of the cups, they will eventually fall out
If needed, boiling the glides to become more pliable will help the installation process.

 

  1. Place your chair or table on top of something to prevent scratching.

  2. Remove the old feet from your furniture.

  3. Remove all dirt, rust, etc., and touch-up any exposed metal.

  4. Use a rubber hammer or mallet to hit the glides in the cup.

  5. Place the glide on top of the cup so that it is level. A piece of tape can be helpful to hold the glide in place if you are having trouble.

  6. Strike the glide down into the cup. Start with a medium strike to get the glide set and check that it is inserting evenly.

  7. Once the glide is holding, continue to hit it the rest of the way.

  8. The pressure against the sides of the cup will hold the glide in place.

  9. Relax and enjoy the rest of the day!
