  1. I've broken two of these now, each lasting about 7 to 8 years. The weak point is if you stand on it on even a slighly uneven surface (like one wheel on a kitchen rug and the other two wheels on the tile floor), the stem on the wheel caster will snap off and break. Because it is plastic and weight bearing, the caster wheel stem cannot be repaired. I've searched for a replacement caster, but it seems difficult to find an exact match. The step stool works ok with just two wheels, but doesn't roll as nicely, and I think it won't be long before another wheel snaps and breaks. I'm thinking of buying the all steel rolling kick stool. This model is almost all plastic material.
