Solid Wheel

"I used 4 of these wheels under a 4'x8' metal welding table. They handle the weight without any troubles and roll smoothly. The swivel lock works fine but the wheel lock does slip a bit. On a relatively flat surface the lock is adequate."

Nice wheel, locking pin is useless

"I love the wheel, it moves a heavy cart with ease. I spent $10 extra for each wheel so I could lock the wheel straight when I want to. Problem is, it doesn't stay locked. The pin only goes in about 1/8 of an inch, into the hole, and the hole has rounded sides, so any bump or sharp turn and all of a sudden the wheel is swiveling.
Real bummer, so I basically never trust locking the wheels and have to have one other person at the other end of the cart to steer it.
Other than that its a great wheel, if you are thinking about this, just get the swivel wheel and save yourself some money."

"It is a good product. The wheels don't lock completely but otherwise they have functioned exceptionally."
