Castor wheels can damage varnished floors or porcelain tiles, apart from being noisy. These castor cups provide an attractive character solution to scuffing, avoiding mass produced plastic castor cups which tend to break up with continued use, and also look cheap.
If the protector cup is for antique chair or dining table castors, it can be annoying if the castors lift out of the cups when moved. For solutions see our frequently asked questions section (F.A.Q's)
Please note if plated option is selected, we need to make a tiny unobtrusive hole in the centre of the base in order to suspend in plating tank.
