CIB Slider Installation:
This installation method works for all compatible plates using Universal and Pro Sliders. Pro Sliders are only compatible with Wide Truck builds.
TOOLS FOR REMOVING SKATE HARDWARE:
1 x DRILL & 5.5 MM DRILL BIT
1 x PERMANENT MARKER
1 x HACKSAW/GRINDER/RECIPROCATING SAW
1 x METAL FILE (OPTIONAL)
A work bench will come in handy.
- First start by removing the laces and innersoles.
- Next remove trucks from plate.
- Undo existing mounting hardware and remove plate and hardware from boot.
- Now lining your CIB Sliders up with the center of your king pins mark the holes with your permanent marker. FIG.1
- With your sliders held over the edge of a work bench you can carefully drill the holes.
- Make sure to drill exactly on your marks. FIG.2
- Now you’re ready for reassembly.
- Reusing any existing boot washers install all new CIB mounting hardware.
- Be sure to use the longer bolts on the back end (larger heeled boots may require longer mounting hardware).
- Seat plate and your CIB Slider and secure all bolts with a flat washers and nylon nuts.
- Last and most important is trimming the excess bolt length!
- This will give you wheel clearance and help reduce any wheel bite.
- Using your hacksaw/grinder/reciprocating saw cut excess bolt flush with the nut.
- Take extra care not to cut into your plate or sliders. FIG.3
- Reassemble trucks and wheels.
- Now you’re ready to shred!
- Taking it to the coping.
