All I'm saying is that should be enough to arouse some suspicion is all.

What do you people use to protect your carpet from your rolling computer chairs?

I'm moving in to a rental next week, it has newer carpet and I want to try and protect it as much as I can over the next year.

I got a bamboo chair mat, something similar to this. Mine can roll up like a carpet.

I have trash disposable carpet under my chair so I'm just letting whatever happens, happen

Obviously, I am not the intended recipient of your question

I like the ones from Costco. My first one lasted 5 years before finally cracking.

I'M DISAPPOINTED THAT CORTANA WILL BE A CIRCLE AND NOT THE ACTUAL SEXY WOMAN FROM THE GAME.


If you’ve got the correct wheel type on your chair it shouldn’t be an issue - many chairs will have an option for carpet wheels or hardwood wheels when you buy them.

I’ve been using a chair with wheels at my desk for about 25 years now and the carpet (which was installed at some point in the late 60s) is perfectly fine.

You can get those roller blade wheel style casters apparently. That's what I'm going to do when I move.

On a similar subject to the current conversations about chair pads/wheels/etc, do you guys have any recommendations for regular casters/feet to replace wheels on a chair? Are they like standard sizes or something? I never move my computer chair so the wheels are actually a drawback to me and I wouldn't mind lowering the chair an inch or two by removing the wheels.

I don't know what chair you have, but the wheels are on small posts that just fit up into the ends of the "star".

Depending on how your "star" is formed, it's theoretically possible that it would sit perfectly fine on the floor if you just pulled the wheels out. If not, then I think you'd just need to find pads that have a post with the same length/diameter as the posts on the wheels you pull out.

Been sitting in my folding chair for about a week now. I think you have to *learn* how to get comfortable in it. If I can't sit crossed legged or my feet off the ground somehow, then it just feels like a horrible office work place where comfort is off limits. The chair, it's too small. I'm doing that yoga half lotus thing now, and it's managably comfortable.
