Reinventing the wheel

Normally “reinventing the wheel” has a negative connotation with it, but we have been designing a better use of a caster wheel on a desk. Normally a caster wheel tends to have a swivel effect when locked on a desk. We didn’t want who ever is using the desk that we have been designing to be annoyed with a desk that will not sit still. So we’ve been working on a caster system that can be lowered when the casters are needed to move the desk. This system works with a arm lever that turns on a pivot point then lowers the wheels. This system has taken a lot of tweaking and gone through a few prototypes but we have finalized the design and ready to start installation on the desk.
