To be used with any Boss brand 27-inch base nylon office chair, this soft casters set is the perfect way to eliminate marking on your hard surfaces and to replace office chair wheels that have degraded through age, constant use, or damage....more
These soft casters can be used with any Boss brand 27-inch nylon base office chair. For use on a hard surface flooring such as, wood, wood laminate or natural stone. These casters help to eliminate marking on hard surfaces.
As said above, it is a nice set of wheels. You might indicate the difference between what wheels are on the chair these in your promotion. Can you be sure one isn't buying an extra set of the same thing? I never checked, but it's a thought. Compared to previous casters these are 100% better just by reason of smooth movement and no discoloration.
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect fit
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good as far as I know about these things. Importantly, it doesn't leave marks on the floor, even when wet, and moves smoothly and quietly.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes -- except an instruction sheet indicating pressure is needed to insert them, especially for arthritic people like myself.
Bought these same time as an office chair. I'm glad I did. After 3 years of using the standard wheels on my hardwood floors, these felt like velvet. They're quiet, roll nicely, have that cap that comes over to keep stuff (material, shoelaces, etc.) out of the wheels and look like the standard wheels. I'd recommend and buy again.

So in my house with all hardwood floors these are a must. I hestiated at the puchase time, whether thy were worth the $$, but they really are. I should have had these on my last chair..would have saved me the cost of refinishing the hardwood floors.
Did the product fit true to size? yes
How is the quality of the product? great
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
two words....NO SCRATCHES!!! But accroding to review policy I have to write more. These wheels easily glide on my very expensive hardwood floors and I have yet to see any scratches. I was a bit reticent about ordering them but several other sites selling similar wheels had excellent reviewer comments so I went for it. What I cannot figure out is why on earth the company doesn't make these standard on all chairs??? Perhaps they don't work well on carpeted surfaces, but seems like most people have wood floors these days....Boss are you listening?????

I never thought there were different types of casters for desk chairs and I was sceptical at first, but because this chair will be on a hardwood floor I ordered these casters. I love them. They roll nicely, but only when I want them to, and don't make any noise or marks on the wood. I'm glad I took the chance and ordered them.
I have looked for a good quality, and comfortable, desk chair for a long time. Some I like are too expensive, other in my price range do not have the quality or fit. I really like that "Herman Miller - Aeron Chair", but who has between $$$$ and $$$$+ to spend on a desk chair. I sat in the "Herman Miller - Aeron Chair" and it is great. It is tall enough, a hard feature for me to find with my heigth, very comfortable over long periods of time, and really built well. I found this "Boss" chair, and the soft composite casters, on Overstock.com and decided to take a chance. I have to say, even though the delivery box came in looking like it had been backed up over a few times, it is well built, solid, and very comfortable desk chair. All together I spent around $$$ for the chair and casters, I have wood floors, and I would say there is virtually no difference between the very expensive chair and the $$$ chair I purchased from Overstock.com. I would highly recommend this chair if you are looking for a chair like the Herman Miller Chair.
I dislike those ugly rubber/ plastic mats that go under desk chairs; I know they serve a purpose, but I dislike them all the same. I have beautiful wood floors and loved the simple functionality of these casters for my office chair. They work well for hard flooring--no scratching or unintended sliding. Great buy!
Had a 'broken' office chair that I was looking to replace and came across this option accidentally. Ordered these instead and the chair is good as new -- better actually, as these casters are 'softer' as advertised and don't seem to mar up the wood floor. Just popped out the old ones and put these in.
Will these casters fit the Boss Double Plush Mid-back Chair

I actually ordered them with the chair hoping they would fit, and they do. Thanks.matt517 on May 6, 2013
We also bought them with the chair and they have BOTH been doing FANTASTIC! The casters fir beautifullyhouselovingrealtor5 on May 7, 2013
The really IMPORTANT dimension on casters is the STEM DIAMETER... that alone will determine if it will fit any given chair, regardless of manufacturer... Please tell me what the stem diameter is for these casters, so I can check it against my current chair casters (hard) to determine fit... Thank you...moonhaw on Jul 29, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The stem dimension is 11.7 inches. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 1, 2012
I had asked about sleeves or inserts for these casters to fit into. It was answered that there was not a sleeve without the entire caster. If I ordered the casters, would they come with an insert? The previous answer was confusing.cooky328 on May 24, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I like the sound of these casters. I am looking for a chair for a vanity in the bathroom. I am looking at buying a swivel chair and adding casters to it as I don't want the office chair look. Is there an insert available to buy to accept the stem of the caster? Thank you for any help.cooky328 on May 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Unfortunately, there is no insert that is sold separately without the entire caster itself.overstockcustomercare1 on May 22, 2012

Do these fit other brand chairs, not just "Boss"? on May 4, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
All manufacturers make their posts in different widths. We cannot guarantee the casters will fit on chairs manufactured by other distributors, since they're only designed for Boss chairs.overstockcustomercare1 on May 9, 2012
Dear overstockcustomercare1, Below, rollinsd on 3/6 said that the SOFT casters are made of poly/metal. In my question on 3/8, I actually meant to be asking what the OTHER/ORIGINAL casters are made of--the casters that the chairs come with that the soft ones would be replacing? Are they also poly/metal? And if so, then what is the difference between the Soft and the Original?martha105 on Mar 12, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I purchased the Boss chair from Wal-Mart online. It came with the casters for carpet. Under the seat a note is attached about needing soft casters for hard floors. That slowed me down a bit (I wanted to use the chair on a new hardwood floor). So after much thought I went ahead and invested in the so-called soft casters. THEY ARE A SOFTER PLASTIC. The hard casters are hard; the soft casters can be dented slightly with a tough fingernail. I didn't test the hard casters on my new floor, but the soft casters seem to be doing their job.martha105 on Jun 5, 2012

So, is there a real difference between the regular/original casters and the soft casters?martha105 on Mar 14, 2012
How are these different than the casters for carpet? How are they made differently for hard floors? They look the same to me.martha105 on Mar 5, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The difference would depend on the material it is made from. A caster made specifically for hard wood flooring is going to be made of softer materials so it does not damage the floor. A caster specifically made for carpet use is not going to be made/constructed of the same materials.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 12, 2012
Casters are undriven, single, double, or compound wheel that is designed to be mounted to the bottom of a chair so as to enable the object to be easily moved. They are available in various sizes, and are commonly made of rubber, plastic, nylon, aluminum, or stainless steel. This particular caster is made of Poly/metal.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 12, 2012
