Caster Screw In Brake
Category: Moving dolly, furniture dolly, caster, caster brake, other, workshop, home
Problem: I have my washer and dryer on casters so they can be easily moved and cleaned behind. The washer is on a moving dolly. However when the washer spins, the washer wants to “walk” around quite a bit. I wanted it to stay in more of one place but still wanted the ability to easily move it.
Action: I drilled and tapped a 1/4 20 hole in the side of the twq front casters and screwed in thumb screws until they pushed into the caster wheels and held them in place.
Result: It works Great!
When idea was conceived: 2017

How much money it took to develop: None Since I had the thumb screws
Current status: In use
