How to install skateboard deterrents

Installation of Skateboard stops into masonry surfaces

  • Set out skateboard stop positions as required keeping approximately 50mm in from edges and spaced no more than 750mm apart. Care should be taken in determining the appropriate offset of the skate deterrent button from the edge of the seat or wall to prevent cracking or damage of the substrate material during installation.
  • Using the appropriate tools, drill holes as set out below:
    Models SK20D-SS, SK20F-SS and SK23R-SS drill a 10mm dia hole 30mm deep. Models SK30D-SS, SK30DC-SS, SK30F-SS and SK30FC-SS drill a 12mm dia hole 40mm deep.
  • Ensure holes are free of dust and half fill with a suitable injectable two-part epoxy.
  • Using a twisting motion insert the Skateboard stop down fully into the epoxy, wipe off any excess epoxy before it cures.

Note: Always use appropriate personal protective equipment when using power tools or chemicals.
