How To Replace The Temples On Oakley Sunglasses

Ah, Oakley sunglasses! Ever felt like a Hollywood superstar with those chic shades on? Yet, life happens, doesn't it? We sometimes sit on them, toss them carelessly into our bags, or maybe they've just had one too many beach vacations. It's a bittersweet feeling when those loyal arms (or temples, for the glasses-savvy) give up on us. But don't trash them just yet!

Remember the old saying: When life gives you broken Oakleys, replace the temples with these! Alright, maybe that's not the saying, but it's a useful life hack. So, how do you replace the temples on those beauties? Dive in, and let’s do some sunglass surgery!


First, Do We Need a Sunglasses Doctor?

No need to rush to the store or pay a king's ransom. Think of it as DIY therapy; you’ll learn something new and save some cash.

What Causes The Break?

Before leaping into the process, it's helpful (and kinda fun) to play detective. Did they snap, or is it a screw that's come loose? Identifying the problem is half the battle won.


Must-Have Tools: The Sunglass Surgeon’s Kit

Alright, my fellow DIY-ers, let's gather our tools. Ready for a scavenger hunt?

The Screwdriver

Think of it as your scalpel. A precision sunglass screwdriver, especially a Phillips-head, is a must. Too big, and you’ll be like a fish out of water.

Replacement Temples

Well, this one's a no-brainer, get Oakley replacement temple. Can't replace something without... well, the replacement! Ensure it matches your frame model. A mismatched temple on an Oakley is like wearing socks with sandals. Fashion faux pas!

Cleaning Cloth

Cleanliness is next to... perfectly fitting sunglasses. A microfiber cloth will do wonders.

The Handy Magnifying Glass

For those of us who don’t have hawk eyes, a magnifying glass might come in handy. Those screws are sneaky and tiny!


The Sunglass Shuffle: Let’s Get Those Temples Dancing

Ready for the jig? Let's boogie!

Prepping Your Workspace

Lay down your cleaning cloth to create a neat workspace. Think of it as the dance floor for your shades.

Loosening The Old

Locate the screws at the hinge. Gently, with the precision of a ballerina, use your screwdriver to unscrew and release the damaged temple. Remember, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey!

Introducing the New

Slide in the new temple, aligning the holes. Starting to see the transformation? It's like watching a butterfly come out of its cocoon.

Screwing It Right

Now, gently screw it back. Not too tight; we don’t want to crack the frame. But not too loose either. We wouldn’t want our newly-fixed sunglasses doing the limbo, now would we?


Tips and Tricks: The Sunglass Wizardry

Like any art, there's always some magic sprinkled in.

Double-Check Compatibility

Remember when Cinderella's shoe fit just right? Make sure the replacement temple is the Cinderella to your Oakley frame. Perfect match!

No Over-Tightening

Grip is good. Hulk-grip? Not so much. Avoid turning into the Hulk when tightening; you might warp the frame or snap the temple again!

Keep Spare Parts

It's like keeping chocolates in the pantry. You never know when you might need some. A spare temple or screw could save the day.
