Hi all,

I have four of those Rockler casters that you step up on to lift a bench or tool base onto wheels and then lift (with your foot) to set back on the floor. All four must be stepped on separately. My bench is pushed up against the wall, so this is kind of a problem—it can be hard to reach the back side and the bench tilts awkwardly until I get both engaged.

Has anyone hacked these to have a bar or a piece of wood that spans two of the levers, so you can step/lift in one place and affect two casters at once?

Scroll through the customer reviews and pictures on the Rockler website. One reviewer linked two casters together, another linked four casters together.
