Patio Furniture Glide Installation Tips

The furniture cups must have a 1-1/2" or 1-1/4" INSIDE diameter.

  • It is typical for the glides to appear too big to fit. These are pressure-fit glides, and force is needed to install them. A tight fit is necessary to prevent them from falling out.
  • If needed, boiling the glides will make them more pliable and help with installation.
  • Use a rubber hammer or mallet to hit the glides in the cup. A regular hammer can crack them.
