Be sure that you have installed grip tape on your board before installing your skateboard trucks. If you have not, please see the Grip Tape Application guide. Also be aware of the type of hardware you have. This will decide whether you need an Allen Wrench or a Phillips Head Screwdriver.

Insert bolt hardware through the factory drilled holes from the top side of the skateboard. If you have a riser and would like to install it, please reference the Wheel Bite Prevention guide.
