Easton skate users
 
Does anyone have a problem with the hardware on the skate holder coming loose? (the bolts holding the runners in the holders)


Before every skate i check the bolts and they are always loose! It's pretty annoying. :madfire:

Do i have defective hardware?

I have got some blue (breakable) threadlocker, will that do the trick?

I have never had that problem. Threadlock should fix that.

yeah, i've had it happen to me a couple of times this year already...it's really annoying, especially since they're brand new skates!

I used to have Easton's and that did happen to me. The Pro Shop can fix it for you but it got really frustrating. I know people who have had that problem with Missions as well.

i always wondered whether having bolts there would be a problem - purposely never bought eastons for that reason.

blue or even green loctite (green is lower strength) should work.

don't use too much and don't use the red stuff!

yup!
i used the blue loctite/threadlocker not long after posting this and haven't had a problem since. Skated several times and i have had a couple of sharpenings and the loctite (blue) is still holding everything tightly:handclap:

I use the Easton Ultra Light and have no problems with them, I'm very happy with them.

What model do you have?

I've got the same problem with my Eastons, so I just check them out of habit before every skate now. Kinda annoying, but I like the skates so I'll deal with it! Threadlock would be a good way to go too, as someone suggested above.

I hated my Easton's for that reason alone, so I bought Graf's. Threadlocker will help it but I think its a faulty/bad design.

I used a little blue loc-tite on mine and I haven't had to touch them since last summer. It's a better design then having the bolt for the blade inside the boot where it gets rusted and rotted. It was a small problem that literally took 5 minutes to fix permanently.

Nice thing about Graf is the bolt is on the back of the blade holder still outside the boot, Allowing adjustment and not having to worry about rust.
