I need one of those heavy plastic "things" that is used near a computer desk so the chair can roll around without damaging the carpet. My deceased parent had one and it extended under the desk where my feet would be and then outward a few feet to accommodate the chair.

I can't look to buy one unless I know it's name.
Thanks.

I would call it a "chair pad"

The last one I bought was about $60.

I searched just now "chair pad" on Google images. It showed alot of chair (seat and back) cushions.
There was one photo of a thing under a chair. It was called a "chair mat"

Buy Bamboo Office Chair Mat from Solutions.com

Wow those are expensive.

You could buy 14sq ft of some laminate flooring for about $15-$50.

I'm assuming it would be sturdy enough.

I know, huh? It is like saying "Let's put this $200 bamboo chair mat to protect our $100 carpet in the room"...brilliant!

Overstock.com has these for different pile heights of carpets starting at $56:
Cleartex Advantagemat PVC Chair Mat (36 x 48) | Overstock.com

or hard floors in the $80 range:
Cleartex Ultimat Contoured Chair Mat. (39 x 49) | Overstock.com

The good thing about buying from them is their $2.95 shipping rate not matter what you buy. These things are big so it would be nice to have one delivered to your door for not a high price. I don't work for Overstock but have bought home products from there successfully in the past.
