Colson Caster Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, has added a Quick-Change Caster Pad to its line of quality casters, wheels and accessories. Requested by Colson customers, the Quick-Change Caster Pad is now available and fits most industrial 4” x 4-1/2” top plate casters.

“Today’s customer wants everything quickly and easily, and rightfully so” said Don Laux, president and general manager for Colson. “That’s why Colson now offers the Quick-Change Caster Pad, which allows casters to be replaced in the field with the turn of just one nut and bolt.”

Crafted of unplated carbon steel, the Quick-Change Caster Pad is rugged and safe for welding. Simply weld the caster pad into position on equipment and replace the caster with just one nut and bolt. The caster pad holds the caster securely in place with a cross bolt on one end and an integrated retaining clip on the other. In addition, the Quick-Change Caster Pad is sold in box quantities to provide bulk discount pricing. Materials handling carts and waste containers are a couple, among many, common application examples. Pair the new caster pads with Colson’s 40 Series caster fork and Trans-forma LT wheel for a low-cost, quality assembly that is perfect for a quick change in any industrial application.

Colson has been in business for more than 125 years, and today manufactures and globally markets more than 35,000 fully-tested caster and wheel products. The Quick-Change Caster Pad is available now for immediate shipment.
