Here are some tools and gadgets for a better skateboarding experience...
The Unit Tool
This is a must have for all skateboarders. The Unit Tool features a 3/8 inch socket for mounting your board, a 1/2 inch socket which is perfect for putting on most wheels and a 9/16 inch socket for putting on trucks. And there's more... a slide-out Allen head and Phillips head screwdriver fits in the center of the tool. The Unit tool is small enough to take anywhere - so you're always set for any of those unexpected breakdowns.
Skateboard Hangar from Rex
Pretty simple and very cool gizmo to have for your skateboard. Throw up a tack on the wall or in your closet and the Skateboard Hangar is ready to go. It'll keep your board safe from annoying parents trying to "clean it up" for you. And if your board is lying in your driveway or on the street, you know some moron in a car is going to run over it eventually. It costs about $4.99 US. You can pick one up at www.skateboardhanger.com
