Rated 5 out of 5 by jakityjak these are fabulous
ive had to use a walker for a couple of years now but I still live independently and take myself shopping, to doctors appointments, etc. I've had the tennis balls, then tried the little ski type feet but these are so much better. They glide easily inside and out. Highly recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dementia Just glide away
I work as a caregiver and have seen several other devices. I ordered these for my Mother in law and they work very well. The walker glides easily and works outside better than the other devices I have used. As with tennis balls and other types they do wear. This is my second set in fact I love them so much I bought two sets.
They are slightly bigger than the legs nothing a little dab of f glue won't fix.
I think all Walkers should come with them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dancer95 Do not work
This product is a great idea but does not work as promised. I tried really hard to use them but they moved around while the walker was being used and even came completely off one time making the walker imbalanced. The directions say that you may need to use a hair dryer to get them to fit properly. I thought that was a little strange considering this product was meant for use by the handicapped. Anyway after a good effort, these did not work for us.

I ordered these for my mom's walker, to replace the tennis balls she had been using. I hoped that these would give her better glide and would last better than the tennis balls. No such luck. I received these in July and put them on her walker. Several weeks ago, I saw that they had completely work through and that she was now dragging the metal bars of the walker on the ground rather then these "gliders". Few people only use their walkers only indoors on carpet. These do not last when used outside on concrete/asphalt, etc. So, beware, if you are looking to buy...they will only last about 3 months when the walker is occasionally used outdoors. Not a good value at all!
Rated 5 out of 5 by toni175 better than tennis balls
don't know why walkers don't automatically come with these? bought for my mom (83) to replace the frayed tennis balls---works way better and she can move more easily--it also lights up in the dark --nice added feature---to the other reviewer ---you have to take off the original rubber piece on the walker in order to place these on---it will fit because all walkers are the same size

I got a set of these for my Mom (88 yrs) to use on her walker, which she has become more dependent upon, lately. She loved them so much she asked me to buy her another set for when this one "wears out". She was worried they might not be available to her at a later date. Of course, that made me a very happy daughter. Anything that makes her life just a little easier is well worth the price. Based on Mom's stellar review, I give this product the highest rating!
Rated 3 out of 5 by VAL14 One size does not fit all
Did not fit on my particular walker. Should come in a set of different sizes. I think it is overpriced for plastic. The concept is good though
