Topic tags/keywords: casters swiveling

Hello, I have a conundrum….a bakers rack that I just assembled with swiveling casters. I’m looking for a solution to stop the casters from swiveling and allowing them to only move in-line. The casters have stops on them which is fine but the rack is in a tight space and I need to be able to pull the rack out straight and return it into the space the same way. Is there perhaps a ring, clip or pin that I can use to achieve this? My casters are heavy duty 3” Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

do you have a swivel caster on each leg ?
I find anything with two non-swivel rear casters
and two swivels in the front easier to drive and park.
if you have 4 swivels, you may have to replace two of them.

Use 2 swivel and two non. Exchange what you have for what you need instead of trying to make the wrong part work.
