" I bought one of these to support the weight of a large wooden gate that had a tendency to drop over time. This castor is well made and the large diameter wheel means that it runs well, even over my gravelled driveway. If you want the castor to take the weight of the gate (rather than just act as a guide) you will need to compress the spring before fitting. The amount of compression will depend on the weight of the gate and I clamped it in place first to get the right amount of compression, then used a cable tie (see photo) to lock it before marking and drilling the holes. Once fitted cut the tie. The holes in the fixing bracket are a snug fit on an M10 bolt, which will prevent it from sliding upwards over time. The swivel bearing is open at the sides, so I would recommend that you grease it up with a thick grease to prevent corrosion. I am pleased to say that it has done the job nicely, so no more sagging gates! "

castor wheel
30 Aug 2015
By
, Newtownabbey
" Bought this for one of my gates, which I had hung on a post, to take the weight and stop any extra purchase on the post or hinges. And it does just that and works well with great ease, can say a good buy and cheaper than the first one I bought from a different supplier before I realised screwfix sold or had them. Well done screwfix. "

" Good design, smooth running, works well on uneven ground, easy to fit and takes a reasonable load off of the hinges.
Fittings would be a very handy addition to the package.

Nice castor
19 Jun 2015
By
, Derby
" Nice gate castor. The spring loading means that even on rough or unlecel ground the castor tracks along the floor correctly offering support to the hinges. The lack of fittings is a little rubbish but the fact they are M10 and not larger means they're not too hard to source, if you're anything like me you will probable already have a few in a pot somewhere in your van or workshop from a previous job.

" Purchased this gate wheel, due to my 5 bar gate keep dropping. So far, works a treat :-).
Word of warning, due to being a heavy gate, the spring compresses. So allow for this when attaching. "

" Perfect item for what I needed it for, very large gates, heavy cast iron ones, and they worked a treat.
The spring helps over the rough terrain and stands up to a lot of use.
Couldn't have bought better.
Thanks Screwfix!
