How to build a complete skateboard at Warehouse Skateboards


Here are some step-by-step instructions for assembling your new complete skateboard:

Here’s what you’ll need:

Gripped skateboard deck
Skateboard hardware
Skateboard trucks (2)
Skateboard bearings (2 for each wheel, 8 total)
Skateboard wheels (4)
Skate tool

If you haven’t done so already, pop through the screw holes in your deck. There should be eight holes total. Insert a screw into each hole.

With the large bolt (kingpin) facing the center of the deck, attach the truck to the screws. Tighten the bolts using a screwdriver and skate tool. Repeat for the second truck.

Carefully remove the nut and two washers from the truck axle. Put them aside.

Insert the bearings into each wheel by first placing the bearing on the truck axle with the metal side down. Put the wheel onto the axle and press to insert the bearing. Repeat on both sides for each wheel.

To attach the wheels, place one of the washers onto the truck first followed the complete wheel and the second washer. Use a skate tool to secure the wheel with a nut. Repeat for the other three wheels.

Note: The nut should be tight enough to securely hold the wheel, but loose enough that the wheel can still spin easily.
