This unique hardware lets you turn virtually any bench into a glider! Measures 7-1/2" between centers with 1-1/4" offset. With rust-resistant plating and ball bearing pivot points. Mounts with common 1/4" dia. bolts (not included). Set of four.

I used these glide bars on my first glider and they worked great. They were easy to adept to my plan which was based upon my comfortable proch swing hung by chains.
The only problem was that the instruction said to hang them vertically. This made the glide back-and-forth motion to be too short only about 2 inches. I saw some other factory made gliders and home made ones and each one had the lower bolt pattern set in from the uppers by 2-3 inches. After I moved my bolts in by 2 inches then the glide motion was greatly improved and smooth like a swing.
I will order again for the next project.

I have used the glider brackets on 6 different glider benches and chairs. They work just like they are suppose to. Very simple and easy to use, and glide great.

These brackets worked out so well on the glider bench that I am building a narrower chair version of it now. They worked much better than the more expensive pivot hinges that the design called for. Modifying the design was simple with these.

The glider brackets glide great. However there is to much side play.

The glider brackets work well, were easy to install, and appear to be very sturdy for the long haul. This is one of my biggest misunderstandings to date. When our youngest son (18) said he wanted an oak glider swing, this was what I envisioned. As I was finsihing it he asked, "isn't it going to sink into the ground?". What he actually wanted was a throw-together for next to the fire pit. What he got should provide him a lifetime of enjoyment. I also threw together a jumbo rocker from 2X4s for the fire pit.
