Hi Robert, I would suggest going for the 35Γ—35 silicone square as that’ll fit snuggly around the square leg. You can find it here >


We have just bought 5 acrylic chairs and attached the supplied white round protectors (stuck on) but they keep working out from the bottom of the legs. The legs taper down to 36mm square The floor is porcelain tiles so the chairs do not slide, so we lift them up to move them (they are quite heavy) – We want a clear product to blend in with the acrylic, but have a bottom surface that will allow us to slide the chairs when in use. Please advise
