Caster Mounting – Part 5 – Round Stem

Round stems are by far the simplest stem design around. It is literally a piece of round stock riveted into the kingpin of the caster. They actually are not that different from a grip ring stem. Instead of using a locking ring to hold it in place, it is a simple compression fit.
