While it might sometimes be too inconvenient to go outside and practice your Ollies, kickflips and nosegrinds on your real-sized skateboard, it is never hard to practice these tricks and more while skateboarding with your Tech Deck. Tech Deck is a 96 mm skateboard made to be used with your middle and index fingers. These fingerboards have the same wheels, trucks, grip tape and graphics as the real-sized boards. Tech Decks come fully assembled, but you can change to graphic wheels. Customizing and maintaining your Tech Deck is just part of the fun.
Things You'll Need
- Tech Deck Tool
- Four Wheels
Turn your Tech Deck over so the the wheels and graphic are facing up.
Hold the tool in your fingers and put the ratchet side around the nut inside the wheel. Turn the tool counter-clockwise until the nut is removed.
Remove the wheel and replace with a new one. Make sure to have the wheel well facing outward.
Slip the nut onto the truck inside the wheel well and turn clockwise until you feel a slight resistance.
Repeat steps 2 to 4 for each wheel you want to change.
Tips & Warnings
- Screws will loosen as time goes by, so keep your Tech Deck tool nearby to tighten the wheels and trucks as they loosen.
- Painting your trucks give your Tech Deck a further customized look.
- Do not overtighten the nuts. The nuts strip easily.
- This toy is not intended for small children because of small parts.
