Bought the Glider Bracket Hardware back before Christmas hoping to have a glider built for a gift. Life got in the way and grand-kids came first(?).
Built the Glider using these brackets and could not be more pleased.

Versatile glider brackets
I used the glider brackets for an outside metal glider that no longer had parts available. Although the bushings were only correct on one side, a simple washer resolved the issue. Some
Slight bending also needed to be done, but all in all, a successful installation and everything works great!

I need longer gliders for a loveseat on a stand. 12" from center to center of mount. Any idea where I could find these?
rowena on Apr 20, 2015
What are the correct angles of the bracketts how far apart? Ours are not working out
A shopper on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Just converted a bench for my wife to a glider the legs of the bench where I mounted the glider was from front leg to rear leg 22.5 inch and the base the part that does not move under the bench was 25 inches so tops are further apart then the bottoms. I was using recovered gliders from and old glider stool they were 6.5 inches center of bearings long.
installed glider hardware, the swing will glide only a couple of inches forward and/or backwards? Is this all they glide or have installed wrong?
Kathy M on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine did the same thing. The brackets were correct.. There is a front and back design to the base of the glider, which I had installed wrong...flipped them around front to back and it works like brand new.
I am replacing worn-out hardware on a 30-year-old bench with the Rockler brackets here. Since these are different than my original hardware, I had to modify the bench to accomodate the longer brackets. My question - Should both brackets hang perfectly vertical to the points where they attach to the bench? The old hardware was connected so than the front bracket connected at about 7 o'clock and the rear bracket was at 6. This caused the bench to tip forward slightly when it swung forward. On the other hand, the 6/7 method provided a finite stopping point to the glider's swing. Since I don't have the original plans, I don't know the logic for connecting these brackets - 6/6 o'clock or some other...?
BradW on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My plans called for the hardware to be connected vertical.The bench moved about 6" from foreword to back.The unit never tipped and was very stable. I hope this helps you.SEE YOU AL
looking for glider bearing arm for jack post glider tete-a-tete where would I find it?
Ruth N on Jun 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rockler carries the standard glider bearings. Best way to start, would be look in the Y.P. under bearings in your area. Some carry the, "Freeway" product line. Check with "Motion Industries", "Kaman Industrial", "Applied Industrial" or an independent in your area. One of them should be able to help you.
Can these glider brackets be used to convert a porch swing to a glider?
Scott on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used them on a glider I built from scratch but the set was basically a porch swing attached to a stand. If you can make a stand it would be possible. As I recall, the instructions were pretty specific about dimensions and clearances so it shouldn't be to hard to figure out. Hope this helps.
Will these work on a wide chair?
Mickeywick on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: should work great. I used them on a cedar glider loveseat and they work very well. Built over a year ago and still operating without any problems.
What is the weight limit?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know what the actual wt limit is. These do appear to be very stury and shold easily support 300 - 350 lbs. however no one has the ability to tell how they should be configured as far as spacinf between the front and back gliders. If you put them in the position as directed in the instructions the glider will only have a short choppy swing. Not the comfortable "glide" you would expect. And no one at rockler can give you an answer or seem to be willing to find an answer to this. Just like selling an item but not being able to give specs such as weight support.
I have old glider that glides on base with springs. Does any one have a parts breakdown on the foot?
kenny n on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure of having a breakdown on the foot but you should be able to go by the old one and see what is needed. Mine was built of wood from the ground up, and I used the rockler glider bracket hardware. you might be able to go online and find something that would work. Hope this will help. Don H
These arms have quite a bit of play in them, are they supposed to be countersunk and installed with washers to limit the play?
Ronnie S on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not necssary to counter sink. Just use the install instructions to be sure you have the correct clearance between the part that will be in motion and the support item. In my case, the moving part is a glider supported on each side by a base which stands on the floor. The weight of the glider helps stabilize the arms.
Looking for Glider Bracket Hardware for baby cradle. Hoping this will work??
Thu J on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They should work just fine. Just be advised, they have a short arc. If you want something with a longer swing, you might want do do something similar but home built. If you use an oily wood like cocobolo for the swinger and brass plated screws to mount them, making sure the screws have a unthreaded portion for the swingers to mount on. Deb
how much weight does the glider hardware support?
Reynold B on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used them I’m not very heavy outdoor rocker that holds two people. It is made of pressure treated wood either to buy for or one by four lumber and must weigh about 70lb. It easily holes a couple wearing a total love 450 lbs.
I need these gliders with the hole 10.5" on center any suggestions?
Jerry D on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: specific If you need these brackets, then you have only one choice, buy them,have a welding shop cut them and weld in a piece to get your needed length. As it is, the distance between centers is advertised as 7.5"
You can make a set out of wood, using something like the ones on Ebay (I would have given the link but Rockler blocked it ) and making the arms the length you need.
the plans I bought say I can buy the glider bracket for $19.99 when I shop for them they are $31.99 item #58330 what is up?
bud b on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I yhonk Woodcraft or Amazon has them for 19.99
What is the total distance of travel of the seat from when it is fully forward to when it is fully back? It doesn't seem to have enough swing. Seems like the brackets need to be longer.
Gene P on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you want more swing you need to angle the brackets. if you install them vertically it limits the swing. I have mine at a 45 degree angle front and back and I get a lot of movement.
Can I get glider arms in stainless?
Scott S on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have been using these brackets on lots of gliders over the years and never seen them in stainless. the ones from Rockler hold up fine.
