InterMetro 3" Caster is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Smooth Rolling Casters I bought these to add to some InterMetro shelving that I didn't have casters for yet. They fit perfectly even though the shelving was 2 years old. They roll extremely nicely, the rubber on the 'tires' is excellent. Highly recommend adding these to your shelving - cleaning, moving etc is so much easier with these casters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from InterMetro casters I love the InterMetro products. These castors make it so easy for me to move the shelves around, allowing me to keep them close together, saving space, but then makes access so easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great strength I assembled a two tier structure to use as a TV stand in my bedroom. The TV is a Samsung 52" flat screen. Easily 150 lbs. Absolutely no issues holding it. Easy assembly once I saw how much force was safe to use inserting the caster into the supporting pole. Once I got it lined up, I turned it over and gave it a good slam on a carpeted rug and it popped right in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from intermetro caster I purchased these to use with my intermetro shelving. Just so I could move things around easier. They work great and are easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great part of a practical kitchen island We needed a kitchen island that would be good for food prep (very little counter space in an NYC apt), storage, not to big, and movable. Intermetro let us design something that is all 4. We are so happy with this thing! Wheels are terrific, easy to install. We did 2 with brakes, two without and it serves the purpose well. Here's the components of our kitchen island. 1. InterMetro® Butcher Block Top - 13-1/4" x 35" x 7/8" h 2. Shelves 14" x 36" InterMetro® Wire Shelf. In Black, it's 483015. We have 3, but you could probably get a 4th one in there if you wanted more shelf space. 3. 4 posts, 34-1/2" InterMetro® Post. Black is 483030. 34 inches seems short, but when you add the caster wheels, its counter height. 4. Wheels - we have 2 caster wheels with brakes and two without. 3" InterMetro® Caster w/ Brake is 483077 5. Canvas cover - we thought about this but didn't do it. We have young kids, but they don't grab everything as much as I thought they would. In fact, we keep plastic containers on the bottom, and when they are interested, it's kind of a nice distraction that keeps them busy. The fact that its on wheels has not been dangerous for the kids, but if we don't want it to move, locking the two wheels keeps it in place. Overall, a great product, and I'd buy Intermetro shelving again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from much better than i even hoped bought the shelving unit for a space that was a little deeper than i thought - after several times of tying myself into a pretzel trying to get to my stuff, i decided to add wheels to it so i could pull it out - best decision i ever made. the stuff on shelves is heavy (tools, gallons of paint, etc.) but these wheels (and the locking ones) roll smoothly and evenly with minimal effort. i initially thought the cost was a little high, but after having seen them in action, they're worth every penny and more. If you even think you may need to move your shelving unit, i highly reccomend these. And bonus, they add 3" underneath the lowest shelf so you can slide things under it as well....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy and smooth These are not dinky or wobbly or get easily clogged. I originally only had these on one of my Metro shelves, but then I got them for all my shelves, since it makes cleaning behind and under the shelf so much easier. Pricy, so I waited for the 25% annual shelving sale.

Community Q&A

Do you carry smaller casters that would be compatible with the 48" clothes rack?

Asked by: Barbara13
No, at this time, there are no smaller casters that are recommended for InterMetro Shelving solutions that are over 34-1/2" in height, like our Large Garment Rack by InterMetro.

If I use this caster and place the bottom shelf as low as I can, how far from the floor is the top of the shelf?

Asked by: rubyrose324
With InterMetro 3" Casters and the bottom shelf placed as low as it can be, the surface of the shelf would be 7" from the floor.

Do these casters work with all InterMetro products?

I have a InterMetro baker's rack purchased several years ago at a Container Store, would these casters work with that baker's rack?
Asked by: Russiam
Yes, the InterMetro 3" Caster can be use with our InterMetro line. We recommend two InterMetro 3" Casters and two InterMetro 3" Caster with Brakes, installed diagonally for your unit.
