Buying Replacement Fidget Spinner Bearings

Guides: Buying Replacement Fidget Spinner Bearings

Published: April 24, 2017

Where can I buy replacement bearings for my fidget spinner? We get asked this question a lot on Spinnermint. Maybe you're current bearing is warped or broken in some manner. Maybe you just want to upgrade your bearing. Luckily, with the rise of the fidget spinner industry, 608 and r188 bearings are becoming more commonplace as demand rises. Makes sense. It still takes a little bit of hunting around to find bearings meant for fidget spinners though as most applications up until now have used lubricated bearings which is something as fidgeters that we want to avoid. And while it's fairly easy to clean and remove the lubricant from your bearing, there's always that feeling with a pre-lubed bearing that you're not getting the best spin possible out of it.

Not sure which type of bearing you want? Check out our primer on the different types of fidget spinner bearings.
