Skate Mechanics: Putting All The Parts Back On
These are all the parts: 16 washers, 8 axle nuts, 8 spacers, 16 bearings and 8 wheels
This is the correct order per wheel: washer, bearing, spacer, bearing, washer, axle nut. (Note: not all skates have washers)
Put the outside bearing back in the wheel by just pushing it in
1
If you have washers, put one washer on the axle. Washers are meant to protect the bearings. Not all skates have washers.
2
Put one bearing on top of the washer.
3
And put the spacer on top of the bearing. Spacers synchronize the spinning of your bearings
4
Place your wheel on your axle and push until you hear a click from the bearing getting back in the wheel.
5
Optional: put a washer on top of the wheel
6
You can also put your bearings back in first. Don't forget to put the spacer in between the bearings!
7
Use your skate tool to screw you axle nut back on.
8
Experiment with how tight you screw the wheels back on. They should spin smoothly, but they're not supposed to move on the axle
