Clip Axle Springs
- 8 pack (eight springs per pack)
- 8MM inside diameter (for 8mm axles)
Springs help eliminate play in the wheels/bearings when using clip axles.
Springs must be used under the wheel, with the spring resting directly on the truck.
Springs eliminate wheel clicking. However, its important to know springs compress and uncompress under the pressure of skating. Springs compressing under pressure may cause the wheels to shift inward (away from the clip) leaving space on the outside (clip side) of the wheel. The space on the outside comes with the risk of a clip opening.
NOTE: always use at least one spacer on the outside of the wheels (clip side). Try the spacer in both directions to reduce as much play as possible.
IMPORTANT: PUSH THE WHEEL DOWN IF THE SPACER IS NOT FITTING ON THE OUTSIDE, PRESSING DOWN COMPRESSES THE SPRING CREATING SPACE THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CLIP THE AXLE WITH A SPACER (OR TWO) on the outside of the wheel (clip side).
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO OPEN YOUR CLIP, PRESS THE WHEEL DOWN AND PULL APART AS HARD AS POSSIBLE. THIS WILL PUT YOUR BEARINGS BACK INTO THE CORES AND MAKE MORE SPACE SO THAT YOU CAN OPEN THE CLIP.
