Skateboards on a wall

The most secure way to hang your skateboard is with a mount. It might take some extra time. But it will definitely be steady, and pet-proof ;). Make sure to get your deck display beforehand!

Step 1: Remove the trucks and wheels

First, you need to remove the trucks. For this you need a pair of pliers and a screwdriver. Put your skateboard sideways. That way you have access to both the top and bottom of the deck. There are 4 bolts underneath the trucks, and 4 screw on top of the trucks. With your pliers, hold on to a bolt underneath the deck. That way you can easily twist your screw on the other side. With your other hand, twist the screw till it pops out. With a few twists, the screw should easily come out! Do this 7 more times, and you’re set for step 2 ;).

Step 2: Drill a hole into the wall

This might seem like a big commitment, but its essential for a secure deck! Measure it out beforehand!! That way your wall wont look like Swiss-cheese when you’re done. Grab a pencil and mark the wall where you want to drill. Now drill the hole. When you’re done, put in a plastic wall anchor. This is a little plastic case for you to screw into later. It will ensure that your wall wont come crashing down at the weight of all your boards ;).

Step 3: Secure your deck display

Your display should come with a screw. If not, don’t panic! You can use any large screw, as long as it fits the hole. You will need this to attach the display to your wall. Grab yourself a screwdriver, and secure the display in the plastic wall anchor. This should easily come together. And now you’re ready for the final step!

Step 4: Slide your deck on!

Your deck display has 2 iron pins sticking out, with 2 bolts on them. Twist these bolts off. Now you can easily slide on your board on the display! Perks of removing the trucks are those pre-drilled holes. Now you just twist your bolts back on to secure the board and viola! You have yourself a nice skateboard on the wall. Easy as that :).
