Skate Tools come in handy everyday that you skate. One sometimes a skater needs to adjust the tightness of their trucks on different terrain, or you have to tighten your mounting hardware cause that downhill run vibrated them loose. Maybe your someone in your skate crew just got new bushings and they want to put them on their trucks. Sometimes a wheel bolts needs adjustment from the axle hitting the pavement on those failed kickflips. It’s better to be prepared than not. Most skate tools that are available from Unit Tools, Spitfire Wheels, Andale Bearings, Carver Skateboards and Ace Trucks come in a wide selection of colors and include sockets that fit the kingpin, wheel axle nut and a smaller one to fit your hardware. A lot of tools also have a phillips or allen head key. The Independent Genuine Parts brand offers The Best Skate Tool that includes an axle rethreader, a bearing press/remover, 2 allen head wrenches and a phillips as well. Alien Workshop Skateboards offer a similar tool.
