What is the Kingpin Carry?
The Kingpin Carry is a skateboard accessory that attaches to the kingpin of a skateboard truck. The Kingpin Carry takes a different approach when it comes to carrying a skateboard. Its simple design turns a normal skateboard truck into a mount for attaching and carrying hands free while keeping it secure and easily accessible.
Remove the top kingpin nut and place the Kingpin Carry on the kingpin through the hole with the tab perpendicular to the trucks axle. To angle the Kingpin Carry apply force to bend it downward. You want to leave about a 1/4 inch of space in order to have a good anchor point.
The Kingpin Carry can be used in a multitude of ways. Like skateboarding itself, it utilizes its environment and you can get creative with how you apply it. Some of the best anchor points are pants pockets, belt loops, keychains, backpack shoulder straps and Molle webbing.
Don’t get it twisted! Skateboards are meant to ride not carry! So have fun and use it sparingly. User be warned. The Kingpin Carry is recommended for cruiser boards or mini boards. If you skate street it could trip you up when doing certain grinds or board slides and also damage it.
