Mount my plates!
Yes we can mount your plates! We are happy to mount plates according to your specifications. Or if you need any advice just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT OFFER SAME DAY MOUNTING AT THE MOMENT DUE TO BEING SO BUSY.
You can bring your plates into the shop or post them to us, whatever you like!
We can sometimes do same day mounting for an extra fiver if you want your new set up straight away. Please check with us though before purchasing about the ETA of your setup as we often have a queue!
Please note, if you didn't purchase the boot and plate from us, you need to choose the 'Did Not Purchase from DTS' option.
If your setup is NOT a standard skate boot with skate plate (you want us to mount to trainers/shoes) there is a higher charge as often this can take a considerable amount of time due to the nature of the shoe not being made for this purpose. Please select the 'Custom Mount' option.
We take great care when mounting plates to boots. We love roller skates and we know how important yours are to you. Different boots and plates can require slightly different mounting specifications and this can change according to things like size and shape of the boots and plates. We are very experienced in building skates and always make sure that we mount your skates in the best way we can. If you have a specific way you would like your skates mounted then please let us know before mounting.
A lot of boots we deal with are hand made and custom built. This means that there are often inconsistencies in the shape of the boot sole or the way the leather has been glued/stitched to the boot. To the naked eye may not be not noticeable, however if you look closely it can make the mounting between boots look slightly irregular. We will always mount for best SKATING PERFORMANCE rather than for best visual look. If you prefer your skates to be mounted for aesthetics rather than performance please contact us before we mount your skates. Additionally, if you have ordered custom sizing (split sizing in length or width), this will affect the way you mount looks.
We take all of this into account when building your skates and will always choose a centreline that will give you optimum performance and control.
Trainer mounts are often not an absolutely perfect art. While of course you should feel symmetry when you skate, due to the nature of some trainers, perfection may not be our usual 100%.
Please note: While we are alwyas careful, we cannot guarantee plate mounting without the plates being marked.
