Tightening board hardware is an important part of keeping your board in its best condition and riding smooth and safe.
It’s important to include a board hardware check as part of your regular board check routine:
The screws on the battery pack and motor driver wing plates should be flush. If they are loose, use a 4mm allen wrench to tighten them.
Be sure to inspect the screws on the ends of the motor caps. If they are loose, use a 3mm allen wrench to tighten them. Be sure not to over-tighten them, as that can strip the threads on the screw and weaken its effectiveness.
Check the four screws on each truck baseplate. Tighten them using the allen key wrench and the smaller pipe wrench parts of your skate tool.
