Great inexpensive double lock wheels

Just reordered more I liked them so much. A very good value for a locking caster. Caster and rotation of axle lock up firmly with push of switch. The axle rotation has a minor amount of play of like 1/8" one way or the other when locked, the wheel locks firmly. This was not a problem for my application.
I've ordered some of the 3" fixed position casters to couple with 2 of these to use them for machines in my woodshop and I'll lock one end and use the less expensive ones for straight ones on the other side and to make it less squirrely when moving it. With 4 casters rotating it's hard to control, but nice to swivel into any place you want, so it's a tradeoff.
I saw someone complained that the fixed position ones aren't same height although the specs seem to indicate they are. So I'll shim them if needed and come back to update this review if I can if that is the case.

Swivel/locking casters are an excellent value. The swivel bearings are shielded. The wheel locks are effective. The wheels roll smoothly on finished concrete. I use swivel casters on all four corners of the equipment stand. That makes it easy to stow equipment in a corner of my garage. It also ensures two wheel locks are positioned for locking without having to jockey around the equipment stand.
