Twinkle Toes Toe Stops
MATERIAL: Formulated from a natural rubber compound designed for high level performance on various surfaces. High abrasion resistance contributes to a longer lasting toe stop.
STEMS: 20mm anodized aluminum stems. This length is between the typical short and long stem lengths, though closer to the short stem end of the spectrum. (Standard short stem: approx. 17mm; standard long stem: approx. 30mm). Why 20mm? Because a shorter stem is preferred by most skaters for skatepark, dance skating, speed, etc., however if using a nut to lock them in place, standard short stems don’t leave much room to actually screw the toe stop into the plate. The extra few millimeters are to leave room for a nut.
CARE/UPKEEP: “Grease is the word!” We all know how the song goes – and just like the lyrics say, it’s suggested to always lightly grease the stems of any toe stop before screwing them into a skate’s plate. This dramatically helps prevent cross threading as well as the possibility of the toe stop getting stuck in the plate by becoming jammed over time.
