Protostar Spacers Stuck


(Brandon1) #1

Is there any way to get the spacers out of a protostar? They are NOT stuck on the bearing, they are stuck on the halves of the yoyo. Can they come off, or are they stuck there?


#2

take a small screwdriver. One time my fiesta bearings shields and cclip came out in the half and i used a screwdriver.


#3

same you just put it in the hole and just slightly pry it off


#4

I used pliers. One end in the hole, the other on the outside. Pinch and remove.


#5

yeah the spacers can be remove by using pliers

Are there treads on the plastic? Or just on the spacer?


#7

there are threads in the plastic


#8

Or more correctly, there are steel nuts embedded in the plastic body.

I got one out with the screw driver thing so thx :slight_smile: But how do you get the one out on the side with the axle in it?


#10

Dont use pliers to take out the spacers. You’ll reshape it and then you cant put the axle into the yoyo.


#11

I grab the inside of the spacer, in the hole, so I don’t make weird marks.

BTW, you can unscrew the axle and take out the spacer.
