Skateboard Hardware Proper Size
Skateboard hardware, also known as mounting hardware, is used to connect the skateboard trucks to the skateboard deck. Skateboard hardware refers to the nuts, bolts, locknuts and screws used when building a skateboard. The screws can have an Allen or Phillips head. Skateboard hardware come in many different lengths, and often include one different color bolt so that the rider can mark the nose of the skateboard.
Each skateboard hardware set includes 8 bolts and 8 locknuts. The set will be used to attach the skateboard truck to the skateboard deck. If you are looking to buy bolts and locknuts individually, you can certainly purchase them that way as well by searching our skateboard hardware inventory from low to high price.
