How to Get Bearings Out of Skateboard Wheels

There are a few reasons why you might need to know how to remove bearings from your skateboard wheels. Maybe you're trying to clean them or replace them with new ones. Whatever the reason, it's a good skill to have!

Let's take a look at how to do it.

Materials Needed

Before you begin, you'll need a few supplies. First, you'll need a bearing puller. This is a tool that helps remove bearings from wheels without damaging them. You can find bearing pullers at your local skate shop or online.

Next, you'll need some gloves to protect your hands while you're working. And finally, you'll need a bowl or container to catch the bearings as they come out of the wheels.

Step 1: Put on Your Gloves

The first step is to put on your gloves so you don't damage your hands while you're working. Once you've got your gloves on, go ahead and place your bowl or container next to your work area.

Step 2: Insert the Bearing Puller into the Wheel

Next, take your bearing puller and insert it into the wheel. The goal here is to get the prongs of the bearing puller as close to the center of the bearing as possible. Once you've done that, start turning the handle of the bearing puller clockwise. As you turn, you should feel the bearing starting to come out of the wheel.

Step 3: Remove the Bearing from the Wheel

Once the bearing is loose, carefully remove it from the wheel and place it in your bowl or container. Repeat this process for each of the bearings in your skateboard wheels until they are all removed.

And there you have it! Now you know how to remove bearings from skateboard wheels like a pro! With this handy skill, you can keep your bearings clean and in good condition so they last longer and perform better.
