A swivel locking mechanism is a type of tool that is used to lock the swivel function of casters or wheels. Casters are the small wheels that are commonly utilized in chairs, tables, and other furniture to provide mobility. The swivel function of a caster allows it to rotate 360 degrees, which provides more flexibility in terms of movement.
However, in some cases, it is necessary to lock the swivel function of the caster to prevent the furniture from moving. This is where the swivel locking mechanism comes into play.
A swivel locking mechanism typically consists of a lever or a pedal that is attached to the caster. When the lever or pedal is engaged, it activates a brake mechanism that halts the caster from rotating. This allows the furniture to stay in place without moving.
