Skateboard hardware refers to the various components that hold a skateboard deck to the trucks and wheels. It includes screws, nuts, and washers.
Screws: Screws are used to attach the trucks to the deck. They come in different lengths and thread sizes, depending on the thickness of the deck and the width of the trucks. The standard length for skateboard screws is 1.25 inches, but shorter or longer screws may be used for decks of different thicknesses.
Nuts: Nuts are used to secure the screws in place and prevent them from coming loose. They come in different sizes to match the thread size of the screws.
Washers: Washers are used to distribute the pressure of the screws and nuts, and to prevent the wood of the deck from splitting. They come in different sizes to match the thread size of the screws.
It's important to use the correct hardware for your skateboard, using the wrong size or length of screws can damage the deck or trucks and make the board unsafe to ride. The screws should be tightened enough to keep the trucks securely attached to the deck, but not so tight that they strip the wood or damage the trucks.
Additionally, some skateboarders use riser pads, which are small plastic or rubber pads that are placed between the deck and trucks to provide extra cushioning and reduce the impact of hard landings.
