Name for roller blade wheel bolts?
June 9, 2012 1:33 PM   Subscribe

What are the bolts in roller blade wheels called? The long ones where the bolt screws all the way into the other part. I need the specific type so I can find a smaller version for a different project. I just have no idea how to search for this.

Perhaps you are looking for something like binding posts or shoulder screws.

Based on these Rollerblade parts, it does appear to be the axles you are looking for, which do resemble the binding posts mentioned above.

I also see those ("Chicago screws"?) made out of much lighter material and used for, e.g., binding paper. I'm sure those wouldn't last very long if used as a rollerblade axle, though, so maybe you need a more specific name.

They are called sex bolts, of all the possible names they could have chosen.
