Default What are those things you put under heavy furniture?

They are like little discs that help the furniture to slide easily instead of lifting.

They let it move too easy sometimes. You sit down too fast and the chair starts moving across the floor and you suddenly get a flashback of thinking you're at sea again. Well at least us non landlubber types have that happen.
