Skateboard mounting hardware, A.K.A. mounting bolts or deck hardware are the bolts used to fasten your trucks to your deck with a flat head on the top of the deck and the nut tightened to the baseplate of the truck.
The most common hardware uses either a phillips head or hex design and usually come with the hex allen wrench. The hex head is a good choice to prevent stripping while tightening the bolts. And while you may think, they’re just bolts… be sure to use hardware designed for skating as the steel is treated to withstand high impact without breaking. Lastly, if you’re not into rust, get a set of stainless steel skate hardware.Skateboard Mounting Hardware - Bolt it Down by Skatessentials
