Tightening the axle?
« on: December 10, 2010, 04:08:56 PM »
Hi, yesterday my new (month?...) g4 finesse got really loose. I tightened it up, but was wondering whether diabolos do just need tightening every once in a while...
Thanks

PS i've also found out that for scuff marks on it (from idiots being idiotic and kicking it) can be got off with a rubber! :) Don't know whether y'all know this already or not, probably, but anyway... :)

Most of my diabolos never loosen, some do.

Give it a good tighten if it comes loose again consider some threadlock or telfon tape.
Only worry you should have is if you tighten a fixed diabolo right up and the 2 cups are still loose.

Thanks for the random tip about removing scuffs . 

Oh, btw, just in case anyone out there is confused a rubber is more commonly known as an eraser in certain parts of the English speaking world

Oh thanks for posting that now that all my diabolos smell like latex and spermicide.
