Changing the Brake

The rubber block on the heel brake should be changed in due time. A replacement costs between 5 and 15 Euros. Changing it is usually free of charge.

Oiling Ball Bearings

One of the two caps on the closed serviceable ball bearings, which are provided with a snap ring, needs to be opened with a small screw wrench. Clean and degrease the bearing and the balls with petroleum ether or citrus solvent. Rinse and dry thoroughly when done. Finally, regrease with a drop of oil or lubrication grease and reassemble. Good quality bearings are usually well sealed against moisture and dirt so this kind of specific greasing is not essential.

Checking the Screw Connection on the Frames

Frames, which are screwed to the shoes, should be checked regularly to ensure that the screws have not loosened.


Never store inline skates in plastic bags or rucksacks. The condensed water from the internal part of the shoe can rust the bearings of the inline skates.
