    Default Using your skate tool

    What is a skate tool?
    A skate tool is something that you can use for all basic skateboard matinence. If you are a serious skateboarder and you don't have a skate tool, I would HIGHLY reccomend purchasing one.

    Parts of a skate tool




    Red Circle- This is what you use to take out the hardwear of the board. You put the screw part in the top of the hardwear, making it unable to move, enabling you to take the hardwear out. You can also use the end with the plastic ring to take out your bearings.

    Blue Circle- This is the part of the tool you use to take out the hardwear. You unscrew the nuts once the part from the red circle ^ is holding the screw in.

    Gray Circle- This is the part of the tool that one would use to tighten and loosen the kingpin. Turn it right to tighten, and left to loosen. Here is what a kingpin is:



    Yellow Circle- This is what you use to take out the nut right next to the wheel. You will have to take this off if you want to change your wheels, clean your bearings, change your bearings, or anything else like that. Here is the nut that I am talking about:




    Well, I hope this helped some people.

    what about the top right part of the red circle: to get your bearings off of your wheels.
