Replacement Wheelchair Front Casters, CACST001R

Replacement Wheelchair Casters, 8 in. (weight capacity: 300 lb.)
Instructions

General Care:

To ensure that your casters have a long service life, inspect them regularly and follow these general maintenance tips:

Wipe metal parts with a clean, soft cloth at least once a week. All metal parts can be cleaned with auto wax or similar products. If exposed to moisture, dry immediately. Do not use an abrasive cleanser that will scratch the finish.

Check casters and lubricate as needed. Lubricate by removing fork and greasing caster stem bearings with high-quality multi-purpose grease. Lubricate wheel bearings by removing wheel from fork. Reassemble fork and wheel by tightening lock nuts until no play remains, but wheels roll freely. If lock nut is too loose, caster will shimmy. If it is too tight, chair will be difficult to steer.

To ensure the best service from your product, contact Cardinal Health at 1-877-227-3462 for more information. DO NOT use non-Cardinal HealthTM parts.

  • you require additional instruction on the proper use of this product.
  • you have any disability or physical limitation or are taking any medication that could cause interference with the safe use of this product.
