What are the Components of the Caster?

A caster is a complete wheel and horn assembly which, when attached to a piece of equipment,
 
allows that item to move.
 
There are two basic types of casters:
 
 
Rigid or Stationary Casters have a rigid horn and wheel assembly which permits only a straight-line movement.
 
Swivel Casters have a swivel horn and wheel assembly that will allow rotation through 360 degrees,
 
which permits movement in any direction.
