Using A PVC Water Pipe
Things You Need:
- 3-inch diameter schedule 40
- 2-inch drywall screws
- Hack saw
- Electric drill with 3/8 and 3/16 drill bits
This method is also a simple way to hang your skateboard decks through your walls. This method only supports the wheels of your skateboard.
Step 1: The Cutting Process
You should be careful about cutting the PVC pipe when you are using power tools and follow the safety precautions. First off, cut the pipe in half with a hack saw around 8 inches for a standard skateboard. Then, it would be best if you slipped the pipe in half lengthwise.
Step 2: Drilling
After you finish the cutting process, you need to drill 2 3/8 inch holes right in the center of the pipe from top to bottom. It requires 4 inches apart as it will serve as the corners of the notch that you need to cut for the next step. Then, you need to drill another two holes with 3/16 inch holes from the center, from right to left. It should be ½ inch on edge and another one or ¼ inches through the same edge.
Step 3: Notch Cutting
In this step, this is your final process for your DIY wall hanger. It would help if you cut a notch through the center for your trucks. The cut you’ll do also depends on the style of your trucks, whether it’s a venture, gullwing or independent. Right in the opposite of the mounting holes, you need to cut the edges on the large hole and do it once again on the 2nd large hole. Cut it down the length between the two large holes by using a hack saw.
Step 4: The Final Step
After you finish cutting the base, you need to hang it on your wall. You need to use drywall screws, about 2 inches, which are good if you have a wooden wall. If you have a concrete wall, you can use Tap-Con screws. After you hang it on the wall, you are ready to hang your skateboard deck on it.
Well, hanging your decks on your wall is a simple way to do. It doesn’t consume time or even your effort. Although one advice is to use your tools safely, all in all, we hope that all the mentioned above can be helpful.
