Check EVERYTHING with new skates. Got some new Riedell skates, checked wheels were tight, trucks adjusted as a like, toe stop screwed on. Didnít cross my mind to check the plate nuts until I landed on my backside after the front two nuts fell off within 30 minutes of starting to skate.

To make it worse another skater went over one of the nuts and went splat in a big way as well.

Iíve seen lots of advice on things to check on skates but nothing ever refers to checking the plate is screwed on properly. Well, you live and learn.
