    I have always had my machines on concrete. After going through hell we're finally moving into our new home. The pins will now have a place designed for them. ( Log great room with a dedicated theater and bar over looking the lake!) Is there a certain product that works best to protect the carpet and maybe help them slide? Thank you.

    I use new leg levelers and clear coat them a couple of time before installing them.

    2nd on the sliders they work great. Then you can move your pins around with ease.

    New leg levelers will be fine on carpet. Just watch out for old rusted leveler with the bottoms worn out.

    Magic sliders from HD are great on carpet, especially low nap commercial style carpet. They allow you to slide games in and out from walls easily without sliding too easily when nudging etc.

    Sliders are great on thin carpet...

    But for thicker i would go with Pinfooties from our very own Bryan Kelly!

    I get these from Amazon. The machines don't move as much as you might think with these under the legs. They kind of settle into their place and remain stationary.

    I also have these under all my pins and video games. They work great. You can still nudge them, as they do settle in the carpet after a few weeks.

    Congrats on getting into your new log home in the Northwoods! Hope you're breathing a sigh of relief. We're almost neighbors.

    I use Moving Men furniture sliders. Any furniture slider will work, but I think Moving Men are the best.

    These are what I use they are great. They will sink into carpet so the game wont move but when you want yo move it they slide easy when shifted out of the hole.

    These are absolutely awesome. Perfect for carpet or wood or tile floors. I can slide my pin by myself on these out of my carpeted game room, through my tiled kitchen, over my hardwood floor to my back door where I can cart it away.

    enough for 4 pins:

    Pin-butts for me too. They come in tons of colors, so you can color match your game!
