Glides prevent the legs of chairs or sofas from scratching or damaging flooring and also enable easy movement of your furniture around the floorspace. Felt pads are advised to protect wood or hard flooring and glides to prevent marking on carpets. Steel glides are available as a 3-pronged option or a single prong option in a range of sizes. Plastic glides are also available with a felt tip. All of these glides protect flooring. Glides can be used in groups of 3 or 4 on wider furniture legs. They are either knocked into the base of the leg to secure or are self adhesive.
