1. SKATEBOARD NUTS& BOLTS: GENERAL INFO
Boltpacks, hardware, shorties or simply nuts and bolts, connect the skateboard deck to the trucks and are thus a very crucial part of your skateboard setup.
The hardware in skateboard bolt packs is specifically made to fit perfectly in the holes in your deck as well as into your trucks.
Additionally, these mounting kits include self-locking nuts, which largely prevent them from loosening due to strong vibrations or tension.
2. WHAT TYPES OF BOLTSARE THERE IN SKATEBOARDING?
You can find bolt packs in different lengths and shapes. In recent years, Allen (or socket) bolts have gained popularity over Phillips head for aesthetic reasons.
Skate tools contain both Phillips and Allen, and also have the matching Allen key for the mounting nuts, kingpin nuts, and the axle nuts.
Allen bolts have a head with a special 6-sided, hexagonal socket. Allen keys can befound in any skate tool and come with most Allen-bolt packs.
COUNTERSUNK VS. RAISED HEAD BOLTS
This type of screw is set in the deck to form a smooth surface that won't interfere with your skating. Raised head bolts are especially suited for drop-through longboard and special materials in longboard construction.
REMEMBER: FOR SKATEBOARDING ALWAYS STICK WITH COUNTERSUNK BOLTS!
