.cart-wrapper .col.item-qty .quantity {
	float: right;
	margin: 0;

.cart-wrapper .col.item-qty, 
.cart-wrapper .col.product-price,
.cart-wrapper .col.sub-total, 
.cart-wrapper .col.item-remove {
	box-sizing: border-box;
    	display: block;
    	float: left;
    	white-space: nowrap;
    	width: 33%;




Help guys. It should be like this:


You are having a float drop down due to lack of space for the input widths

On <td class="col item-qty" you have width:33%

At some point, the 3 inputs at width:36px; + borders is exceeding the <td> width:33% causing a float drop

It only takes one pixel to make a float drop

Try narrowing the widths of your inputs to 34px or whatever prevents the float drop


Yeah. I did it now my problem is, how do I center the div quantity (input &button)? I tried margin: 0 auto; but it's not working.


You can't center three floats with margin 0 auto;
That only works on one element (their parent) with a width.

The 3 input's parent is .quantity
You would need to remove the float: right; from .quantity then it would center with margin 0 auto;

You will need to set up a new class or selector for that situation.

If it does not conflict with any other parts on the page a simple correction here should work..

.cart-wrapper .col.item-qty .quantity {
	/*float: right;*/
        width: ; /*total width of 3 inputs*/
	margin: 0 auto;

If the inputs were inline-blocks then you could center all three of them with text-align:center on the parent.
Then you will have whitespace nodes to contend with in order to get the inputs right next to each other.


Something like this should work

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <title>Test Page</title>
.quantity {
    display:table;/*contain floats*/
    margin:0 auto;
    /*visual test rules below - remove on real page*/
    outline:1px dashed red;
.quantity div { /*simulate inputs*/
    border:1px solid;
.quantity div:nth-child(2) {
    border-width:1px 0;


<div class="quantity">
