Larp Weapon Maintentance

Larp Weapon Maintenance Banner


All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone which can be purchased from our site.Larp Inn Weapon Lube - Silicone Spray is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.

Weapon Lube

Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight.

Always remember no matter how awesome the larp sword is, its still moulded foam and latex on a rod. If you mistreat it, you will damage it, but if you take care of it, your sword, mace, axe, spear or dagger should last you for many, many battles.



Sometimes a weapon has surpassed the need for a little silicone and TLC. If your weapon needs repairs or no longer passes saftey we recommend you check out our 'Latex LARP Weapon & Shield Repair' article on what to do next.
