I’ve recently been thinking of some tips, kind of, that have helped me in the past, so I thought I’d put them up here, and hope that you find them helpful!
Don’t want to unscrew your Yoyo, but you’ve got one of those pesky slip knots in the gap?
In the past, I have used tweezers, toothpicks and even sharp pencils to get these out, just get the sharp part under the loop, and pull it out. It’s worked for me countless times.
Traveling or taking your yoyos to a contest but you don’t have a yoyo case?
No sweat, put each Yoyo into a sock, and you don’t have to worry about the yoyos hitting each other, you can put them in a backpack, or a suitcase or whatever!
Also works: putting each yoyo into a fabric wrist guard.
Don’t want your string to unwind, knot or get caught on something while you’re not using the throw?
Loop a hairband or rubber band around the gap, tight around the string and bearing.
Need a makeshift yoyo holster?
Wrap a rubber band or hairband tightly around the gap, and clip a carabeaner to it.
Don’t have a multi tool/string cutter?
You don’t need a multi tool just for cutting string. I use one of my pocket knives more than I use the string cutter. You can use teeth, knives, scissors etc. Don’t get me wrong though, I use my multi tool’s bearing remover all the time!
Alright, guys. I hope this was helpful, if you have any more tips/advice, fell free to leave them below! Thanks
