Default Felt feet in lidl

1.79 a pack. The brown ones are about 15mm and 30 mm diameter plus a large rectangular pad.The grey ones have a steel pin for fixing and about 20mm dia. The plastic ones look to be a soft type. Didn't see if self adhesive though. Dimensions are approximate from memory of visit earlier. I didn't examine any closely.

Poundland sell similar pads, though they're not always in stock as with many of their products.

They seem to be a standard stock item in Wilko.

Very useful. I keep stocks of all these types of stick on felt and rubber feet.

These 'felt feet' are always (well, usually!) available in Asda if anyone needs any. Sold for putting under sofas, bed posts etc to prevent them scratching wooden floors.

Very useful, thanks - I think I'm running out of those grey ones in a white plastic surround, which have come in handy for all sorts.

(If you ever need larger ones, cut-up bits of carpet tile are very good - they tend to stay together on the backing, which provides a secure surface for gluing them on, and depending on how hairy the carpet is you can sometimes cut them with a hole saw).
