    I found that if I put those little stick on pads on the bottom of the chairs you're much better off. If sand gets between plastic that's on the bottom of the chair and the floor it can really do some damage. You can get those felltor fabric cushions for the chair bottoms at Home Depot they come in jumbo package of all different shapes and sizes I use them on all my furniture for my wood floors. And also please remember that you need to keep the sand away from it

      We use those stick pads on all furniture - there is really no reason not to, just in case!

    I would apply felt pads to my chair legs. It is possible to scratch this flooring with repeated dragging of the chairs across the floor.

    My wooden chairs have scratched my Saltillo tile, so I would imagine they could easily scratch vinyl too. I put those glides/slides onto the bottom of the legs. Works well.

    Those stick on pads will not stay on for love or money.

    The sticky pads come off and leave a sticky black residue on the floor. I am in the process of cleaning off the residue with goo gone, washing the good gone off with dilute detergent, then washing the detergent off with water, What a hassle!! I am now using "clear" Scotch brand cups on the bottom of each chair leg. This brand has a cork slide on the bottom. They are short and have a split so the 1" cups can fit a little larger chair leg.
