Loaded Skateboard Longboard 1.5 Inch Flange Head Hardware

Loadeds first consideration when they began redesigning their hardware was material strength. Loaded saw plenty of chewed up and broken bolts popping off the setups of fervent freestyle fanatics and knew that there was room for improvement. After some research and testing, Loaded selected an extremely strong variety of steel with incredible properties (very high elastic resilience and significantly higher tensile strength than Grade 8 rated hardware). Loadeds new lock nuts are also made of this material. Next up was the actual bolt design. Loaded had used washers with hardware for years to more evenly distribute pressure on decks and help prevent damage from over tightening, but washers added one more (well, eight more, to be more accurate) tiny component to handle while assembling completes. To retain the benefits and simplify the assembly, Loaded designed their hardware with a flange head, which in essence integrates a washer into the bolt itself. In addition to distributing the load from mounting, the flange design also eliminates washers (from top mount setups) and results in a lower and less obtrusive bolt head on the top surface of the deck (for reduced interference with foot movement and less chance of scraping if the board flips over). The hex key socket is also slightly recessed beneath the surface of the bolt, providing a small amount of material shield to be ground away before damaging the socket and making adjustments difficult. Finally, Loaded looked at the thickness of their decks (and other boards we all ride) and used this information to specify a non-threaded portion of the bolt that increases strength and creates a smoother and less damaging interface with the mounting holes of the deck.


Available in 1 inch, 1.25 inch and 1.5 inch lengths and come with an allen wrench.
