Shopping Cart Casters

 

The shopping cart caster is one of the most commonly recognized casters. Shopping carts, or grocery carts, typically use two rigid and two swivel casters in the rear and front of the cart, respectively.These casters will usually contain a single polyurethane wheel in a zinc plated fork. The wheels will also use a sealed ball bearing to protect from dust, dirt, and weather. Shopping cart casters use a special keyed stem in order to keep them properly aligned.

Shopping cart casters occasionally come with special options, such as anti static or self deceleration.

It is often noted that shopping carts have squeeky, wobbly, or otherwise imperfect casters. These problems are generally not issues of the caster, but rather a lack of maintenance and abuse during use.
