How to clean your Thraxx Spinner Bearing

We thought this would be a helpful  step by step on how to clean the r188 bearing found in your THRAXX fidget spinners.

It’s really simple and having a clean bearing will help the longevity of your bearing in addition to optimal performance.

4 Steps to a clean bearing

1. Pull grips off – You want to use nothing but your fingers for this step I personally use my nails and i place them right under one of the grips. Just like your grabbing it, now pull straight up with a little wiggle. If one sise doesn’t come off as easy try the other side. They are precision machined to the perfect size for the bearing hole so it is imperative that you pull straight up. Once you get one side off the other should be a breeze.

2. The cleaner –  Spray this contact cleaner on both sides of the bearing (direct stream) to get all the debris that’s built up in the bearings.

3. At an angle –  Spray the stream at an angle to get the bearing spinning to make sure everything gets out of it. You’ll notice the bearing spinning on it own.

4. Spin Dry – Put grips back on and spin until dry… if you still feel something in the bearing run through the steps again… I vigorously spin the THRAXX for 1-2 minutes until it’s completely dry.

If you find that you still feel something in your bearing repeat the steps, sometimes it takes more than one cleaning to get your bearing performing at it’s best.

    Will this cleaner ruin Brass or Copper when cleaning the Bearing ? I’m not sure you were making Spinners out of these metals when you wrote this how to video.

      Hey Chris – No the cleaner will not ruin you brass or copper spinners. Yeah we had all the protos made of all the materials and the contact cleaner worked wonders. We still use this method.
