If you want your wheelchair to move faster, go farther and smoother, then you have to maintain your wheelchair’s bearings. Your wheelchair has bearings in three places: front caster, front fork, and rear wheels. Most wheelchair manufacturers say you need to re-grease or change your front caster bearings yearly, and the forks and rear bearings as needed. With the right tools, this is easy to do. This 5/16" brass pin punch allows you to remove 8mm, R6 or 3/8" and R8 or 1/2" bearings found in your wheelchair's rear wheel hub, front fork, and front casters.
- Less risk of damage - specialized tool reduces the risk of damaging hub or front fork as compared to using a flat head screwdriver
- Specialized design - designed to accommodate recessed hub for rear wheelchair wheels
Problems this product solves:
Problem 1: Flathead screwdrivers unevenly remove a bearing causing damage to the caster, front fork stem or rear wheel camber tube.
Problem 2: Most punches do not have long enough necks to reach through a rear wheel wheelchair hub to knock out the bearing
Problem 3: Most pin punches are made of hardened steel. This can damage the bearing if you want to re-grease and reuse it.
Used with the following wheelchair products:

- Quickie- Sunrise Medical
