Simple Glide®

US Patent 8,621,710 and other international patents

The longest-lasting and most cost-effective glide available


Easy to install on new tubing, Carpin's patented SIMPLE GLIDE provides an attractive non-skid rubber base that can be quickly replaced in the future.


Available in a variety of colors and diameters to fit different sizes of metal tubing, SIMPLE GLIDE was specifically designed for use in classroom and cafeteria furniture and other applications that want to reduce long term maintenance costs. SIMPLE GLIDE is ideal for use as OEM equipment, but also provides an intelligent retrofit solution for older furniture.


If the glide base ever wears out, only the rubber bottom cap is replaced. The innovative gripping hardware stays in the tube, saving you time and money on future glide base replacements.

SIMPLE GLIDE offers these exclusive features and benefits:


  • Easy to install on new tubing


  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Attractive and quiet
  • Environmentally-friendly
  • Simply replace the base



The SIMPLE GLIDE system adds style and durability while being extremely environmentally-friendly. The rubber base material leaves no marks, helping reduce the need for floor cleaning chemicals. The glide base rubber material is also 100% phthalate-free.


A special removal tool is available that removes the rubber bottom portion of the SIMPLE GLIDE.






The patented SIMPLE GLIDE is a simple and sensible solution that allows you to color coordinate the glide to create a customized look.
