How to Choose the Right Size Skateboard Hardware

About skateboard hardware

Skateboard hardware, also known as mounting hardware, is used to connect the skateboard trucks to the skateboard deck. Each truck requires four bolts and locknuts. Hardware is sold in sets of eight, though you can purchase parts individually as needed. The screws may have an Allen or Phillips head.

The length of the screws you will need depends on what style skate deck you have, and whether or not you install risers. Skateboard hardware comes in many different lengths, and often includes one different colored bolt so you can mark the nose of the skateboard.

Hardware will naturally wear over time, like other screws. If you notice that the bolts look stripped or rusty, it's a good time to invest in a new set. Doing a lot of skate tricks on your skateboard can wear down your hardware even quicker. Hardware sets are generally inexpensive, and can be easily extracted and replaced with a screwdriver.

Warehouse Skateboards has a range of skateboard hardware sizes, colors, and brands in stock to suit your needs. We also sell bolts and locknuts individually if you don't want or need an entire set.

Choosing skateboard hardware size

Skateboard Hardware at Warehouse Skateboards

The best hardware size depends on what type of skateboard you have. For most shortboard applications, the standard hardware length is 1". For a longboard or cruiser, 1 1/8" is a good standard. If you choose to add a riser to your board, which increases the space between the deck and the skate trucks, you will need to adjust the length of your hardware. Below is a general guide for hardware size.

7/8" to 1" hardware - no riser
1" to 1 1/8" hardware - 1/8" riser
1 1/4" hardware - 1/4" riser
1 1/2" hardware - 1/2" riser
