I have finally decided to do this simple, yet unpopular, mod to my skate. Finally I can leave it with peace of mind outside, locked to a pole or bike rack or anything solid, while I go to the beach or into stores.
Easy to brake, dont leave it out. But well thought I guess.
Skatan now has your soul. Forgiveness is not an option.
Doubles as handle bars. I just went with putting a big hole in the nose of my board so I could loop a cable lock through it.
I tough about that option, but cable is too easy to cut with bolt cutters and would not give me peace xD
This is a good option for short quick errands without having to lug around a heavy ass board into a store. You probably wouldn’t want to wonder off too far or for more than a half hour.
This mad me LOL so loud! But seems like a good solution.
Easy to brake? So far seems the best solution i saw on the internet, and it is so damn easy to make The lock looks like a quality U-lock… so you will need a battery angle grinder to brake it, a bolt cutter will not do the job, and it makes lots of noise and sparks … And the holes in the board seems to have lot of wood meat around, so i don’t se why should break easy. I probably will do the same to my board when i decide to build it if there are no better option that come up by then…
Anyone has a suggestion for better and more secure locking method? i am not talking of carrying it with you, i am talking of locking it, thanks
I wouldnt leave 1k++ worth eboard outside alone even with a ulock. If it’s a normal eboard, I don’t mind. There is always a possibility where if I can’t steal it, I will break it.
This is the reason why we invented the Holy Pro and make our decks from fibre reinforced material (-; You can even lock the truck to the deck.
I like the idea but i wouldn’t use it. It’s nice to see when there is only deck on that post where you left your board or somebody has wrecked it. I see almost every day some bike FRAMES locked in poles. It’s so easy to take everything else off.
I have never seen a strip of plywood, attached to a post. Would be at least something new!
Lol I just use an alarm lock through and round the trucks,doesn’t need to be bulky, anything touches it a warning goes off then 120 decibel alarm sends them scurrying !!
Like this minus the seat post holder
What country are you from? I could send you an ebay link but think your American so just search Amazon.com for alarm lock
Just don’t buy one that looks like this! The button broke and nearly couldn’t get it unlocked! Sent it back lasted a day!!

Sounds appealing,bluetooth lock no keys even has its own app! just a shame the button to release the lock got stuck!! They also make a code version but no way I’m trusting to buy another! Thought I was gona have to ring my builder mate to bring his tools till I pryed it apart! Steer clear…read reviews!
About ten years ago I had a crappie old skateboard. It was like worth $5 ! Some crazy chick stole it when I went to the bathroom in a coffee shop. Even a small chain locked to a chair would be enough. Unless you lockup your board at the same time and place every day I don’t think you need to worry about someone cutting a lock with tools.
i carry mine into the store.
Cashier: “Is that one with the motors? how do you ride that with your groceries?”
Me: “I am a god. Check the forums, they’ll tell you.”
Cashier: “Suddenly i want to have ten of your babies.”
Me: “I only have three children, and no you can’t have them. Plastic is fine, thank you. Can i use the chip here?”
