Boltless Caps

our boltless headset caps are designed to fit any bicycle that has a normal 1 1/8" (32mm) cap and bolt already installed - they are a marvel of design and engineering and fitting takes less than 1 minute

if installed and cared for correctly, our boltless headset caps are also bomb proof

PLEASE BE GENTLE

if your bicycle has been put together correctly, it is the stem bolts that hold everything safely and securely together NOT the headset cap & bolt - please NEVER torque your headset cap up during installation

here is your old headset cap

using an allen/hex key (probably 5mm), undo the bolt and remove your old headset cap and bolt

keep it safe, you will need to use it if you ever need to retighten your headset bearings in the future

take your shiny new retainer and add the bolt to it - see how delicate it is

add a dab of grease to the bolt and carefully place the retainer and bolt over the hole in your forks

gently turn the bolt a few times with your fingers only

using a 4mm allen/hex key and only your fingers, tighten up the bolt carefully

PLEASE BE VERY GENTLE - DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT - IF IT'S TOO LONG - CUT IT

it should now sit firmly in place, lined up and the bolt . . . NOT EVEN FINGER TIGHT!!!

take the cap-insert in your hand and add a tiny dab of grease to the O-Ring at the back

place it over the retainer you have just installed

then align the design so it's facing the right way round on your bicycle

push the cap-insert into place - it should feel firm and tight, if it's been fitted correctly
