Nifty glider replaces threaded spikes or cones for loudspeaker or rack isolation and mobility with superb lateral stability. (With an efficient decoupling approach, spikes are not really needed at all.) Fiberglass reinforced dBNeutralizer-filled vinyl base with smooth polymer bottom handles virtually any weight load on bare or carpeted floor. With jam nut to lock-in height adjustment. (Superb also for use as turntable or amplifier feet.)

Dimensions: width: 1.3" (33.3mm) · fully mounted height: ≈ .4" (10mm)

Giant Threaded Stud Glider: Same as above with threaded stud embedded with fiberglass-reinforced dBNeutralizer into large Magic Slider. Broad footprint provides superior lateral stability, with ample dBNeutralizer "beef" to isolate the heaviest speakers in the most severe vibrational conditions (nearly five times more vibration-absorbing dBNeutralizer than regular Threaded Stud Gliders).

Easier, better and more versatile than spikes

I've used several sets of these gliders under different speaker stands supporting a variety of speakers over the years, and think they really make the most sense for most people. Currently, they're delivering a notable improvement with Solid Steel stands supporting KEF LS50 speakers, and make it easy to position the speakers -- on solid floor or carpet -- with zero hassle. They might even be an option for those who wish to pull their speakers out to the optimum listening position, and then push them back when their room needs to serve other purposes.

Herbie’s has been excellent to work with and I’m very happy with the threaded stud gliders. I highly recommend them and I hope to order from them again one day.

Works Great!

I purchased a set of giant threaded stud gliders for a hefty DIY audio rack. The rack itself is about 100 lbs., and with gear, it's around 375 lbs. I needed some feet that would allow me to "easily" slide it back and forth on a wood floor to access the back of my components. Despite the weight, the gliders work perfectly.

Product worked as advertised. Made a difference in the sound.

I had to call for some support and Herbie's was very helpful and problem was solved.

Threaded stud glider - Giant

I purchased these for a pair of Acoustic Zen Crescendo MKII speakers to replace the spikes (I was using the giant gliders with the spikes but felt they were too high with a big gap between the speakers and carpet). They work very well. Not so sure of improvement in sound as my ears are not super tuned as some people's ears are but the speakers sound great and are easily moved.

Fantastic Improvement! Works Better Than More $$$ Options!

Really impressed! These gliders tightened up the bass and have improved the overall sound coming from my Tekton floorstander speakers. Previously I tried Gaias and Townshend Podiums but returned them both. I should have started with these Herbie's Giant Gliders. They hit the nail on the head for me in the way that those other far more expensive options didn't. I am very happy with these gliders!

You Need Speaker Feet

I recently picked up some B&W floorstanders on the used market. They didn't come with the stock spikes, and I knew feet would make a giant difference vs no feet. I have wood floors, and have the stereo system in the living room where positioning options are limited. Being able to conveniently slide the speakers on the floor was a major selling point--both to be able to easily experiment with speaker positioning and move the speakers out of the way if necessary. The other feet alternatives I was considering were basic brass spikes with coasters and IsoAcoustics Gaia feet. Although I haven't compared these Gliders against anything other feet yet, I'm highly satisfied with their affect on the sound. I view the sound reproduction hobby as one with numerous bottlenecks that need addressing. In that light, Herbie's Gliders are a very high value-for-money upgrade. I have plenty of other bottlenecks to address. Even as an active hobbyist, I believe it will be a while before I will circle back to A-B test different feet.

Threaded stud gliders for the win.

I purchased threaded stud gliders from Herbie's to use with my Skylan speaker stands. The stands are placed on a suspended wood floor. The stud gliders really decreased the resonance reaching the floor, with the result of clearer sound overall. Wish I bought these years ago.

Threaded Stud Gliders - A winning product

I replaced the built-in hardwood floor footers with the stud gliders anticipating some improvements in sound. However, the results were beyond my expectations even after reading many recommendations. I anticipated a tightening of the bass but not the virtual disappearance of blurring. However, the prize was the opening up of the highs and the clarity gained. The scale and articulation of the sound is greatly improved.

Threaded Stud Glider

Used under the woofer towers of my Infinity IRS Beta. Made a significant difference in the power and projection of low frequencies. Highly recommended.

Herbie's Threaded Gliders - A++++

I bought the threaded gliders primarily to help me with slight placement adjustments of my Spatial M5 Sapphire speakers on my hardwood floors. They were very easy to install and work perfectly. The regular feet on the speakers made them very hard to move and scratched the floor when I did move them. Herbie's gliders solved that problem and I highly recommend them
