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 kit includes 8mm Blind Bearing Puller/Extractor and 8mm Bearing Installation Tool which allows you to remove 8mm bearings found in your wheelchair's front caster wheels.
- Easy to use - this tool is designed specifically to remove bearings from wheelchair front casters
- Cost-effective - you don’t have to buy an entire set of tools just for one or two sizes
- The right tool for the job - most bearing tools are designed for bicycles or cars, not wheelchairs, so you have to make them work, which can damage your gear
- Less risk of damage - a specialized tool reduces the risk of damaging casters as compared to using a flat head screwdriver
Problems this product solves:
Problem 1: Automotive bearing pullers pull from the lip of the inside ring of the bearing, but a wheelchair hub axle sleeve can prevent the puller from grabbing the ring
