Wrist guards do indeed protect the wrist during relatively low-energy falls by 'load-sharing' with the wrists and arm bones and by absorbing impact energy

    It helps by protecting your wrist-bone and your forearm from large amounts of weight on impact. If you don't fall completely flat onto the ground then while skating you could fall and it could help you slide instead of just hitting the ground

Buying roller skate parts can be expensive. How can I prolong the life of my skate wheels?

The inside of the wheels is usually the first to go - you should rotate your wheels so that the worn out edge is on the outside, this will wear the wheels out evenly and they will last longer.

How can I maintain my figure skating blades and boots?

Keeping your figure skating boots and figure skating blades dry is the key to their longevity. Figure skating blades should never be stored in plastic blade guards!! Always wipe off any moisture from figure skating boots and blades. You can use teri-cloth blade covers, Zookers, or Blade Blankies to store figure skating blades. It's typically a good idea to occasionally take your figure skates out of your skating bag to let them "air out". Also, never leave figures skates in your car during warm weather seasons. Most figure skates are heat moldable and leaving them in the car can misshape and ruin your figure skates.

Converting Little Tikes Roller Blades

My nephew has these skates and I just converted them from the training position to the inline position. The skates come with a bag of extra parts that you need to make the conversion. Basically you need the same bolt that is used for the first wheel and the middle wheel since the back two wheels are mounted on a long bolt that doesn't work for just one wheel. If you didn't get these spare parts then you're probably out of luck. If you're converting to the inline position you might be able to just use the front and rear positions but the plastic frame may not be strong enough. Good luck!
