Replacement Lace Locks for RBK skates
A few weeks ago I broke the lace lock on my RBK 9K skates. This caused me to wrap the lace around my ankle that night, and then use a shorter lace until the new piece came in. Not a big deal, but I've grown to really like the lace lock because you can make the lower laces a different tightness than the top of the laces.
The hardest part is finding the replacement lace lock, and I found it for you. I found it at a small site called Hockey Boss. Aside from the extra charges for a shirt disguised as shipping and handling, I couldn't be more pleased with their store. They shipped it very quickly, and will put them on my list of sites to check regularly when I need new equipment.
Replacing it was just as simple as you'd think. Unscrew, remove, insert, screw back in. The problem is I couldn't find anywhere or any site that would show instructions on it. As long as you can use a screw driver, you're set.
