Endless Frame Locks are the missing link for unlocking maximum performance from your 165 mount frames.  Specifically designed for the lateral mounting slots on all Endless 165 frames, our patent pending Frame Locks minimize unwanted play in the frame-to-boot bolted joint while simultaneously improving mechanical coupling between the frame and boot.  

This part was engineered to keep 165 frames from shifting when subjected to intense or abusive skating.  If you struggle to keep your frames secured in place, or have always wished there was a single perfectly centered hole for mounting your frames this is your solution.

Insert these parts into the front and rear mounting slots from inside the frame in place of standard washers.  The frame mounting bolt passes through the hole in the Frame Lock.

Learn more about why Frame Locks are superior to standard washers.

Absolute Frame Stability: Frame Locks restrict frame movement by securing frame mounting bolts at a fixed position. The usual play in frame mounting slots is significantly minimized.

Frame Shifting Safeguard: The Frame Lock prevents large frame shifts if mounting bolts loosen slightly from rigorous use or neglected maintenance.  They convert the usual friction joint to one that more appropriately places the bolt in shear and tension.

Precision Alignment: A single tightly toleranced thru hole in each Frame Lock ensures precise lateral and angular frame positioning/alignment.

Superior Clamping Force: The clamping force of the mounting bolt is distributed over a greater surface area, which reduces frame deflection under load at the base and improves coupling of the frame to the boot.  This translates directly to enhanced power transfer, responsiveness, and stability for jumping.

Features

Centered Frame Locks have a centered hole.

Offset Frame Locks provide an offset hole for laterally shifted frame positioning.  

A combination of Centered and Offset parts may be used to achieve a 0.7 degree angular shift in alignment.  Or two Offset Frame Locks may be used in opposite directions to achieve a 1.4 degree angular shift.

A set of centered Frame Locks is included with Endless Swan Frames.

Boot Compatibility

There are three primary mounting standards: 165 raised heel, UFS, and Trinity. It's important to know which mounting interface your boot has so that you can choose the correct Endless frame. These three mounting types are not interchangeable with one another. In other words you cannot fit a Trinity frame to a UFS boot, nor can you fit a UFS frame to a 165 raised heel boot.
