Retractable casters

Kurt Vanhee

Hi all,
Last year i bought the rseat formula and monitor stand as well.
As the missus is bit frustrated that she can not clean that area very well:p, i decided to make a wooden platform to put it on. The platform that rSeat hasm is only available with dbox and is way too expensive:(, at least for me.
So when browsing to look for some ideas, i came across these retractable casters.
I was able to find them on ebay but seems again too pricey. At least because i am
based in Europe. Been looking around but i am not able to find these somewhere in europe:redface:
So asking for your help.
Much appreciated.

Mid pack attack!
you my friend are amazing! I'll see if I can dig these up but they look like they would solve some design ideas I was having for other projects.

Those are great for a race-frame based rig. I use locking casters on my office chair so it doesn't roll away when I push the brake pedal. It works pretty well - I call them my "Parking Brakes". :)

You could use swivel wheels with a lock function.
I have a rig one man almost can't lift.
After rolling it in position, I lock 2 of the 4 wheels.
The rubberwheels also are damping the simvibe's very well.
