Types of skateboard bolts

In the assembly of a skate, two kinds of bolts are used: 

On one hand, we have those that hold the trucks to the deck. They can have allen type head (hexagonal) or phillips. Four screws are used for each truck, and of course with their four respective nuts. The bolt packages we sell always include all the elements needed to set up the trucks (8 bolts and 8 nuts).

The other type of bolts we find is the kingpin, which is located in the center of the truck. All the trucks already have the kingpin incorporated, but the use and the hits that it received make it sometimes necessary to change the central bolt or kingpin, and you do not have to replace the entire truck. 

Skate bolts sizes

Allen and phillips bolts that hold the trucks to the deck are available in different sizes that refer to the length. The most usual measurement is, in inches, 1.25”, 1” and 7/8”. Depending on the height of the truck, or if you are using risers, pads or shock pads, it would be necessary to use a longer bolt.

Recommended skate bolt sizes

To serve as a guide, these are the correct sizes you should use for each kind of pad: 

  • No Pads: 7/8”
  • Low pads or shock pads: 1”
  • Medium pads: 1.25”
  • High pads: 1.5”
