How to Replace the Blade in Your Hockey Shaft
Replacing the blade in your hockey shaft is a very simple procedure. With a heat gun, apply moderate heat to the hosel of the shaft where the blade has been inserted, rotating the shaft so that all sides are warmed. If you don't have access to a heat gun then a hair blow dryer will suffice, although it will take a bit longer than using a heat gun.
Depending on the heating power of the heat gun or hair blow dryer that you are using, it could take anywhere from 1-5 minutes of heat application before you will be able to remove the blade. The best way to avoid overheating the shaft is to simply check as you go, pulling with moderate force on the crook of the blade as you hold the shaft with your other hand about 15” up the shaft.
Once you've removed the blade and you're ready to insert the replacement blade, heat up the tip of a glue stick and smear the melted glue onto the hosel of the replacement blade. It is the glue that allows you to easily remove and insert the blade and, of course, it holds the blade in the shaft when it hardens and dries. So heat up the glue on the hosel of your replacement blade, slide it into the end of the shaft and you should be good to go.
