How to Replace, Install and Put Skateboard Trucks Back On Your Skateboard Deck

Jamie O'Clock
To replace or install your skateboard trucks back on your deck, or to put new skateboard trucks on your skateboard deck, follow these steps:
  1. First, set the skateboard trucks over the holes in the skateboard deck
  2. Next, using your thumb, push the skateboard screws down through the deck and through the holes in the skateboard trucks.
  3. Using your fingers, put the hardware nuts on the ends of the screws, and turn them until you can't anymore.
  4. Once all the nuts are in place, use your skate tools and tighten the screws the same way you removed them.
You should have your new skateboard trucks freshly installed onto your skateboard deck, and be ready to ride!
