Protect your Bearings

I don't know about you, but our practice floor is filthy.  Does anybody have a practice floor that isn't?  I recently discovered a new item that has helped a lot with keeping my bearings clean for a longer period of time.  They are called Grind King Rims Bearing Protection or Grind King Rims Axle Thread Saver.  There might be other brands, as well.  I got mine at a skateboard shop, but you can also buy them online. They come in funky colors, too.

Pity they don't come in 7mm! I can't find them in that size anywhere. :(

I'm using AstroNuts. They seem to be very similar, but they're from a derby-owned and operated business.
