These Penco Universal Walker Glides have taken easy to the next level. The glides enable wheeled walkers to move smoothly over a variety of surfaces without any snagging or catching. They effortlessly glide across carpets, thresholds, and sidewalks, handling little bumps and ridges without jostling the user. Their modern ski-like design with the elevated front edge makes them easy to maneuver. The large surface area keeps in constant contact with the ground, making the walker safe and easy for any user.
Not only are they easy to use, they are also easy to install! They work with any 1” or 1 1/8” outer diameter walker tubing. The Universal Walker Glides use tension to hold them in place, so gone are the days of hitting a big bump and losing a glide, or pushing painfully to insert new glides onto bent framing. To install the walker glides, you will need a Phillips head screwdriver. Full installation instructions are below.

4 stars, Goodby to tennis balls
By Hurrah for Hip Replacement Granny from Bakersfield CA on 2013-05-07
Pros: Glides Over Small Bumps, Doesn't pick up dirt, Lasts Well On Concrete
Cons: Can Scratch Wood Floors
Temporarily need walker and had gone through 3 sets of tennis balls in less than 3 months. This is a far superior alternative. No collected dirt to drag in, no struggling to replace worn through tennis balls and no unnecessary trips to store to replace. The glides will make minor scratches if there is the hint of dust on the wood floor but more careful dust mopping solves that.
5 stars, My mom loves these!

Helps make the transition between types of flooring (mats in stores etc.) that were always a safety issue. And the best thing is: they are quiet! Gone is the scraping sounds which always announced Mom's arrival!
4 stars, Works well for 3 months
By Jean B. from Appleton, WI on 2012-04-18
Pros: Easy To Install
Cons: 3 month lifespan
Although this product has to be replaced every three months or so it is one of the better walker glides available.

Great for any walker and real beefy so they will last awhile.
