- Snapped oakley frame – has anyone ever successfully glued any ?
…aftersales didn’t help me: my glasses were discontinued and no spares available (would have gladly paid since it was I who sat on them), got politely told “tough” with no whiff of discounted replacement. Given the customer service that is normally raved about on here and tales of free repairs and replacements of truly ancient/knackered frames/parts, I was a bit disillusioned with them TBH.
Also if warranty/customer service fails you, find out what your frame is made of and Google away for what glue works.Posted 4 years agoioloMember

If you crashed your car and smashed the front wing in would you expect a discounted replacement? Why should it be different with sunglasses? Did Oakley break them?Posted 4 years agostMember
I have some very long obsolete Zeros and had the same happen. Oakley advised no spares available but that I could have replacements at 40% discount. Not got round to sorting it out though.
I also did this a long while back with some E Wires that my brother say on and totally smashed. Got some Flak Jackets to replace them on the same basis.Posted 4 years agomartymacSubscriber
i have repaired the leg on my old (90s) frogskins.Posted 4 years ago
used a needle like an internal pin, heated it up with a flame to insert it.
worked ok, and held fine, but i couldnt fold the leg after it.
i may have used araldite at the same time, cant be certain about it though.julianwilsonMember
Iolo, the first half of my sentence that you quoted is the answer to the question you asked immediately after quoting me. Oakley have a usually justified reputation for doing just what I mentioned (but not for me) and this is what Oakley fans will say is one reason for their relatively high prices.Posted 4 years ago
