Do jam plugs serve any real functionality? It always seemed like they were invented just because rink owners harped on “your skates MUST have toe stops” and they wanted to avoid damage to their skate floors. Jam skating lent itself to moves where the big toe stops just got in the way and jam skaters would always take them out. This was always a big battle between rink owners and skaters.

I suppose that little tiny piece of plastic would offer some protection to a skate floor. Possibly even some protection to the skate’s plate, keeping the toe stop threads clean and undamaged. Beyond that, do jam plugs offer any other benefit or practical use?
