Upper bracket for caster
- Used to install plate casters
- Galavanized steel
- Combine with WF-LOW
The WF-UP is a metal bracket used to secure plate casters in conjunction with the WF-LOW on Flexpipe structures, such as the W-4PSB and W-4PF.
WF-UP and the WF-LOW are installed with two M8-35B bolts and two M8-N nuts.
You can use this bracket to stabilize two pipes as an alternative to the HJ-13. Since the brackets are longer than the HJ-13, this could be a good option.
This accessory is not for six-inch casters. The larger version of this bracket should be chosen if this is what you need. So if you are using W-6PSB or W-6PF wheels be sure to use the WF-LARGE product page.
Compatible with EP-96-ST and EP-96-BK
See the installation steps tab to view how to assemble the WF-UP.

- Ensure you have the following parts:
- 1x W-4PSB or W-PF

- 2x WF-LOW
- 4x M8-35B
- 4x M8-N
- 2x 28mm pipes of your choice

- Ensure that the structure is leveled when supported by the pipes that will be wheeled. Otherwise, the height difference might cause the structure to sway.
- Flip the structure for better access to the bottom pipes.
- Ensure the pipes are parallel and have 3 1/4 in of center spacing.
- Place the two WF-LOW perpendicular on the pipes.
- Place the caster on both WF-LOW and align the openings.
- Take one WF-UP and regroup it with one of the WF-LOW.
- Take two M8-35B bolts and two M8-N nuts and insert them into the corresponding openings. Then lightly tighten them together.
- Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the other WF-UP and the bolts and the nuts remaining.
