There are 3 different lenths and these being,

Short for the 2 fron studs.

Medium for the Middle studs.

Large for the 2 back studs.

 

Buying the large ones means you can scout the excess off after fitting.

If you are doing this on a regular basis I would advice getting a Tap from the local Engineers supplies. This can be used 2 fold, first to clean the edge of scoured inserts, secondly to clean rusty or corroded existing inserts.

Another advantage is that you can re thread broken studs by this following method, Level the broken thread then Use, a centre punch to make a mark in the dead centre (important) Then use a larger drill bit to drill through the old stud (not the thread part though)(be careful that the drill is not on an angle or it will come through the side wall of the insert)Now use the Tap to re-thread the old insert.(the old thread will come out at this stage)

As well as the Tap you will need a Tap Handle.

 

When putting new srews in always put a spot of Grease or Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) on the thread. The reason for this is that the insert and the stud are 2 different metals and electrolitic action causes corrosion and makes it impossible to remove the stud when needed.

 

You may need 2 taps if they have changed to Metric.

 

A few words of caution, Beware of using collars for other sports such as Golf, Cricket,Rugby,Steeplechase etc; they may look the same but have different threads. A couple of types may be interchangable but dont take the risk.

 

There is a National demand for this work, no-one is "tapping" into it.

Lot easier and quicker to hacksaw stud off if thread has gone,whip up insoles and heat collar with electric pliers,remove collar and replace with new one.

I've done loads of these,even replacing blades with studs including making new fibreboard insoles and when they bring them in Friday morning after training Thursday night and want them for Saturday afternoon time is definitely of the essence :lol:

I agree with your methods michael26uk but........... sometimes the insert is in a moulded unit and not replaceable, unless you drill the whole thing out and insert a collar from the inside, the problem with this is that the person wearing the boot can feel the base plate of the inserted collar.

Not always the case tho as there are ways of getting around this but there needs to be room in the boot and a wearer with feet that are not sensitive.

Flexibility is paramount for Pros.

Hi all, I'm new on here so be kind!!

 

I repair and customize football/rugby boots as a second income. mixedsole boots are becoming very popular and i have now found several suppliers of inserts at varying lengths. you need them as boot soles differ in thickness front to back and make to make.

 

got this down to a fine art and even do boots for pro players [not allowed to name them due to boot contracts].

 

if anyone need help finding the parts or just some advise feel free to contact me.

 

john.

Hi, I bought a pair of second-hand adidas world cup boots on ebay last year and one heel stud on each boot wouldn't come out due to rust. Anyway I managed to snap off the thread on both (a great effort on my part). I have drilled out most of the stud but don't know whether to try to get a tap and handle and repair the thread or take the stud insert out. In any case, I don't know what size tap I should be looking for or how to remove the existing insert. It would be a shame to chuck a pair of boots for what looks to be a relatively easy fix.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi all not sure if this thread is still active but looking to either pay someone to convert some moulded Adipure boots or point me in the right direction of hat inserts studs to buy and where to get them from!

 

The latter will probably result in the loss o a couple of fingers on my part and some unusable boots but in willing to try!
