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).

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

Threaded Stud Gliders Deliver Significant Improvements

Replacing the stock spikes on my Target stands with Herbie's Threaded Gliders has resulted in a higher, deeper sound-stage, better separation between instruments, more realistic timbres and a heightened sense of realism to vocals. These enhancements are not of the subtle "I-think-maybe-I-can-hear-a-dfference" variety-- they are significant and plainly evident. I've been, to put it mildly, very surprised to discover that an investment of $140 can bring about this degree of improvement. Thanks, Robert !

Excellent!

The Gliders replaced the stock spikes/saucers on my Paradigm HT speakers. The Gliders added stability and better adjustment on a somewhat uneven surface.

Threaded Stud Glider

I purchased the large Threaded Stud Glider for my Maggie speakers, and did not expect a large difference in sound. But these devices made an amazing difference. They made the bass clearer, and entirely eliminated listener fatigue by controlling the highest frequencies and keeping them in balance with the rest of the sound. I am not only pleased but blown away by the difference. Highly recommended!

Unexpectedly Good Difference

I wasn't expecting the feet to make a huge difference sound-wise, but the improvement was night and day (not to mention the glider bottoms makes repositioning a breeze). Robert was quick and happy to respond to all my questions, a real treat to deal with. I have no qualms recommending these to anyone looking for aftermarket speaker feet.

Giant Threaded Stud Glider

Installed the giant Threaded Stud Gliders into my ATC SCM100 active towers. From my very first listen it was obvious the Herbies footers were an emphatic improvement. The whole soundfield has more clarity and the speakers disappear more as sound sources. Positioning of instruments in depth is better defined. The tone and texture of voices/instruments and particularly transients are clearer and more realistic. There's more delicacy and decay to sounds. It's like a layer of intermodulation distortion has been removed - the whole audio range sounds cleaner and more present. These definitely get a recommendation from me.

Perfect!

As part of my recent upgrading of my home theater system, I bought a new pair of floor standing front speakers. They came only with spikes, which would not work on my hardwood floors. So I got Herbie’s threaded gliders. They are the perfect solution — they get my speakers off the floor for better sound, and they make it easy to reposition the speakers without leaving any marks on the floor (which means without risking being killed by my wife!).

Herbie's Threaded Giant Sliders

These gliders cleaned-up speaker distortion and made it much easier to move around my 118 lb. speakers on the carpet. The product worked as advertised.

Threaded Sliders

Used to avoid rug damage with my Vandersteen CT Quatros. Worked well sonically and provided speaker stability.

Threaded Gliders

Drilled in threaded inserts on my Cornwalls and added the gliders. Awesome quality and now I can level and easily move the speakers around. Highly recommended.
