Default Screws on plate....

Hey Dr Sk8,

I was just wondering, I had a plate from one boot placed onto a new boot and the original boot and plate were held on with 6 Screws, when I got my new boot and old plate returned it was only fastened with 4 (2 each side of plate) screws instead of 6, (3 each side of plate).

Thanks for your time.

Should of they have just done the same amount of screws or is the less amount of screws going to be Ok?

Exclamation

A few more details would help. Some plates are only held on with 4 screws. I have seen many more in some plates I have 8 in a Skater brand Polar figure plate. 6 in front and 2 in back. Overkill to be honest. So let me know what plates we are talking about here so I can be a bit more helpful.

Sorry! Yep can help....

Pilot plate.......

There's room for 3 screws down each side of plate, as in 3 screw holes.

I would suggest using all 6, if you are doing derby. I used 4 on mine because I don't stress the toe stops.
