Have You Seen These Casters I’m Looking For?
I want to build a box for my (small) walk-in closet that I can use as both a seat to get dressed on and a stepstool to reach the higher shelves. I want it to be on casters so it is easy to roll around, but I want the casters built into the box and hidden from view. Think of it like a Rubbermaid stepstool, when there is no weight on the stool it sits about a 1/2” above the ground, and when weight is applied to it, it rests on the ground securely. I’ve considered getting those Rubbermaid casters but I think the finished box will be too heavy for those existing casters to keep it off the ground.
So I’ve looked on the internet for “spring loaded casters” and “concealed casters” and can’t find anything that will work. They are either too big (I think 2” or smaller is what will work best), or too heavy duty (I want the box to touch the ground when about 25-50 lbs. is applied to it).
One thing I learned is that “gate casters” will not work because they are too big and want to attach to the side of the box. Anyone out there have any ideas?
