Rating:
86% of 100

Our Quick-Release Workbench Caster Plates let you remove your Workbench Casters (#43501, sold separately) by simply removing the caster bracket pins. This means the caster levers won't protrude and interfere with your movement around the bench. If your bench has an overhang, you can also store items such as a shop vacuum under the overhang without obstructions. With your bench, table or power tool stand in the desired spot, just lower it with the foot levers, remove the pins, and the casters slide out laterally. Includes hardware for mounting to 3/4" panel. Powder-coated steel. Longer bolts may be required for thick workbench legs.

Avoid Tripping
The quick release plates make it very easy to remove the casters when the equipment weight is not on them. We use the casters on seldom used equipment that does not have much room around it when in use. Taking the wheels off prevents hitting the wheels when walking around the machine.

Great Product
These plates will save a lot of money by not having to buy multiple sets of wheels or saving lots of time by not having to bolt and unbolt the wheels when you need to move multiple items.

Works well for being able to remove or place as needed
I have a small shop and I don’t always keep my bench in the same location and will rearrange things to make room for a particular project need. I don’t like to have the rollers always protruding because a project may take several months before I rearrange again, and it’s a nuisance to have the rollers on. This solved everything for me giving me the option to add it remove them - built out of steel, they work nicely - my bench isn’t light - i’d guess 400 lbs and I haven’t had any issues

THESE WORK PERFECT !
A real life saver in my tight little shop, now I can take off the wheels and stop tripping until I need to move the bench. It takes just moments to use these and they work exactly as described

Quick release for caster set
because I was screwing these into 2x4s, I had to go get screws from the local hardware store. Other than than, easy to install. Plus, the casters go on very easily. Don't have to lift the table I installed them on. Consequently, I don't keep all four wheels on the table only two. If I have something on the table that is heavy, I add the 3rd and 4th wheels. But by keeping them off when not needed, they don't protrude into the work area for me to trip over.

want my bench casters out of the way. great sale price!
Mike H on Jun 22, 2019
Having the quick release plates on the special bed platform will prevent a tripping hazzard when not needed. The platform will be finished and having just the plates exposed will be nicer to look at. Adding the casters will be quick to install when needed
mike v on Jun 22, 2019
They work great makes it easy to move heavy work bench around for cleaning
Robert C on Jun 20, 2019
I wanted the ability to swap the casters to another table and this will allow a quick swap.
Plus they were on sale along with the casters so I bought both to try them out.
James S on Jun 7, 2019
Looks like these are the sturdiest casters that I've located thus far. And, with the added feature of being able to remove them from my workbench they are a plus.

Will be using on a cabinet under a shopsmith and workbench. They were also on sale.

We need to be able to remove the casters as they stick out 6 inches on each side of our Lathe ( a trip hazzard) when we use it in the shop.
Dale W on May 25, 2019
Removable option is best - and usable on multiple benches for times when everything gets moved.
Allen G on May 19, 2019
I can take the casters off if I wish and eventually get plates for each tool bench and just use one set of casters whenever I need to.
John B on May 13, 2019
I hope these casters will make my heavy work bench easy to move by myself.

Joseph D on May 5, 2019
Can use on the Woodworking bench and two other heavy benches. Don't move often, but when I need to move them it is nice to be able to just move the casters. Lets the bench fit into smaller space when not needed.

My large power tools are all on casters but I have two large heavy workbenches that are not currently mobile. With a couple of sets of these quick-release plates and one caster kit I can move as needed and remove the casters once done.

Great item. I have multiple items to move so I am putting plates on each one with one set of casters in each location - home, shop and work.

Joe H on Feb 28, 2019
I picked these plates because I am constantly tripping over the castors at the end of my bench and legs of my machinery. It will be a relief to remove the castors and still be able to reposition them for moving heavy equipment around my shop.
Helen G on Feb 28, 2019
so that one set of casters can be utilized on multiple pieces of shop equipment.
Jake J on Feb 28, 2019
As advertised; you can leave them in place after moving the structure/cabinet. This will work with the Workbench Caster Kit 4 Pack. You can then remove the Casters and store them away or use them on a different cabinet if that is set up the same way.

BEST ANSWER: If you need longer screws to go through the wood there is no problem, use the length you need to go all the way through the wood with about 1/2 inch to spare, this is the amount you need for the thickness of the quick release and for the nut. As for height, The box tells you to drill the holes 2 inches from the floor, and the second hole 4 inches above the floor, you should center the holes on the leg (side to side. I hope I have helped you

I am in the process of making a rig for my lathe stand. it will be nice to save money by using just 4 casters
for the two units. John
Has anyone tried mounting larger casters to this set? I have to mount it higher than the 2" that these specify. My requirement is that the first screw must be at least 2 5/8" off the floor. I'm thinking of putting a 3" caster on the mounts to raise the lower bolt for the quick release plate to 3 1/8". Any thoughts?

BEST ANSWER: I had a similar problem and just mounted the caster set a little higher. It works good but just leaves your stand or whatever a little closer to the floor. Measure your clearance and just allow for that to allow space to move.
When the casters are in the deployed position how high is the table elevated off the ground based upon the measurements found here on the Rockler site for mounting the hardware?

Will the Rockler plates work with the WoodRiver work bench caster set?
Patrick K on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will. I think they are the same manufacturer, just different box/brand. It worked for me.
Is it possible to use screws, instead of the "bolts," to mount the caster plates?
Ragpad on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For those interested I found that flat head #14 screws of your desired length fit the best and don't interfere with sliding the casters into the plate.
I bought your caster set 3 or 4 years ago for a bench I was building but ended up not building it. I would like to use them now and wonder if they will work with the plates?
Tom L on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think they should, but it does depend on which casters you purchased. Rockler has a return process if they don't work.
Does using the quick-release caster plates lower the load rating of the casters?
Denean S on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did not read that in the literature and I would guess the answer is no, the quick release brackets are the same material as the casters so I would guess there would be no reduction.
For Item #: 53004 does it come with caster wheels or i have to buy the wheels separately ??
Hari T on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the Workbench Caster Plates do not come with caster wheels, they come separately. However, you can buy multiple sets of the Caster Plates and only one or two sets of the caster wheels and save yourself some money, that is if you don't mind swapping the caster wheel sets from unit to unit.
I already have the Powertec 17000 version of workbench casters installed on a bench and wondering if these Rockler Quick-Release Plates would be compatible. Has anyone tried matching these on an install?
monsenor on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used them on a bench that I made, they should work
I would like to maybe use it as method to go from the kitchen island to a regular dining table. Will it for work for this? Can the structure be in stable position even when on casters? How many inches will it go down when the casters are put to the side? Thanks!
Natalia P on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When you put the castes down it will raise the table approximately 1/2". I have installed these on 3 different tables in my shop. I generally leave the casters down so I can easily roll the tables around. The casters are very stable in the down position.
Can these be mounted to angled steel legs? I want to use them on my Performax 22-44 sander and Belsaw planer, both of which have steel bases with angled legs.
