Default What size is toe stop bolt on Arius?

Anyone know the length of the toe stop lock screw in the Arius Platinum plates?

In my quest to price an ultra light skate, I want to research a titanium bolt replacement.

Problem is, I can't find the bolt length. Several sites state it takes an M5 diameter (apparently standard for all Powerdyne plates) but nobody lists the length.

Anyone have an Arius Plate and a ruler?

Why does length matter? Just buy the correct diameter stud toe stop and screw it in rite? In all my years and helping friends build an swap parts an such, i have never once seen a toe stop that fits diameter and thread be too long. Every stop on every skate i have ever come across has seated all the way no issue.

He is asking about the length of the toe stop pinch screw. Are you answering his question or just being silly?

PS, I can't answer because I cut the toestops off my set of Arius when I turned them into 6 wheelers.

Some choices



The shaft is SAE threaded, if it’s to long cut some off.
If it were metric threaded you would buy roll-line stops.

These stops have hollow aluminum shafts, titanium would be solid and heavier.
Width wise, they are all the same, one size fits all, just metric or sae threads.

To save weight get some Snyder Advantage Titanium Plates.
If you have to have D/A45's get some Magnesium S/A's and do the Titanium axle D/A45 conversion.

Good point.

Anyway, sourcing an M5 titanium Allen head bolt is a google search away

https://www.google.com/search?q=m5+t...&client=safari

Length wise, I’d get a 1 1/2” and cut off the residue, put a nut on before cutting to chase the threads. Getting a 1” also shouldn’t break the bank.

I like the colored ones.

So...now you can put on some light weight toe stops

I got the plates you want to know about, but I took my bolts out, and put a jam plug in there, which doesn't need a set screw.

If you want the lightest setup possible , that means no stoppers, so just take it out and don't worry, unless you need or want stoppers of course.

Tomorrow I will pull the bolt out of the platinum plate my friend has and look it over to make sure it is the same as the one on my red plate.

You may have already found the information or moved on, but the bolts are 16mm.

Yes he moved on. Interestingly, he wears the same size 9 boots I do. After 2 nights of rolling my stuff (and OMG this beginner did not die on my Short Forward sk8s ...) This included my Bont Arius... I built him a Solaris w/ a Ti Energy and Bont RA wheels for his "starter sk8s". Built a set of Bont Hybrid Carbons w/ mag Avengers for his lady friend too.


There will be more to follow I am sure.
