split legs on teak Cherner chairs

What an amazing web site this is -- thank you. I have some Norman Cherner (Plycraft - made in the 50s) teak chairs. There are plastic glides nailed into the bottom of each leg. Recently, someone sat down hard and one of the legs began to split from the bottom where the glide nailhole was. I'd like to fix it without devaluing it (do I just use wood glue?), and I'd also like to prevent more splitting in the future. Should I remove the rest of the glides? With what should I replace them? Can you give me any advice? Thanks again.
