Stool Round Base Floor Protector

I have a pair of stools with chrome bases measuring about 17" in diameter on which the floor protector plastic glide rings have disintegrated. So I need about 50" of plastic strip to cover the metal lip around the circumference of the base of each stool.

Does anyone know where this plastic strip can be purchased?

Usually there are snap-on vinyl or rubber "feet" that snap on to the round bar.
It may be tough to get a roll product to fit the curve of the base.
Can you post us a picture....... How-to-insert-pictures

I would think a glass shop might have something. Or possibly a metal fab type place.

Thank you all for the responses.

There is a fellow selling these things online, here

but I wanted to be able to take the base with me to a shop/retailer to ensure the thing fits on my stools before buying the protectors. They are not exactly cheap to order and then find out they don't fit.

Sorry, PJmax, the stools are at a condo, not readily available to me to take photos readily, but I will get one as soon as I can.

The bases look identical to the ones in the video.

I use caterpillar grommet and nylon grommet/edging material that I but online in rolls.
John left you a few links.
Not sure what retailer is going to have it in stock where you can go in and see it.
