Prevent IKEA Gilbert Chairs from Scratching Floors?

Q: Help, Apartment Therapy community! We have the Ikea Gilbert chairs around our dining room table and love them, except that they scratch the heck out of our hardwood floors. We've tried attaching those little felt pads with Goo (heavy duty adhesive) and they just come off.

I think it has something to do with the little black ends of the chair legs being adjustable (on a ball hinge). We don't want to ditch the chairs or have a rug under them. Any ideas?
