Add Spray Paint to Caster Brake Levers for a Little Added Shop Safety
posted on February 1, 2008 by Woodworker's Journal
Brake lever on shop caster with red coloring Coloring on one end of your caster's brake levers gives you a nice clear look at their position without having to bend down.

Most of my larger shop machines are mounted on swivel casters with brakes, but sometimes it’s hard to see which end of the brake lever to step on without bending over to look closely. Here’s an easy fix: just spray-paint the “locked” end of the lever red. You’ll never need to stoop over again. Just step on the red ends to set the brakes.
