Roll-Line 12mm NON-Click-Action King Pin Prior to “04”
for use in NON-Click Skate Frames:
Roll-Line 12mm NON-Click-Action King Pins are engineered to be light-weight and withstand the use and abuse of high level competitive Skating.
Roll-Line 12mm NON-Click-Action King Pins have a 13mm deep socket and thread that screw into a Roll-Line Skate Plate (labeled “04”, which means the Skates were manufactured after 2004). When installing, a 17mm Hex wrench will be required, or better yet and the easiest way to change King Pins, is to use the Tube Wrench, mounted in a bench mounted Vice. Without the Roll-Line Tube Wrench or a very deep 17mm socket it is extremely difficult to remove the King Pin without damaging or destroying it. The King Pins are installed with “BLUE” Removable Lock-Tite to ensure they stay locked into the Skate Plate. When installing new King Pins ALWAYS use the “BLUE” Removable Lock-Tite.
Roll-Line 12mm NON-Click-Action King Pins are engineered to bend before breaking, so they rarely break. Normal causes for King Pins to need to be replaced are:
1. Improperly Adjusted Pivot Pins (see Pivot Pins for more information on properly adjusting) which move up and down or side to side in the socket, allowing an extra ordinary amount of stress and strain on the King Pins.
2. The Adjusting Threads on the bottom of the King Pin get Stripped. This usually only happens when the King Pin Locking “Keeper” Screw is loosened and the Adjusting Nut is run on the very last thread or two. (see Suspension “Cushion” information to ensure you are using the correct hardness Suspensions for your application.)
