Build you own clip-on wheels for $5



  • The idea I had in my head about this concept was more like what the custom bag builder made (though I had thought of it in this type of thing) with roller blade type wheels, turned 90 degrees to these wheels, and a clip on handle or in V.2 board a cut in handle on 1 end and cut in wheel groove well points to lock onto.

    I was even thinking a small nylon rope, with hard plastic grip that clips on.... So it's easy to store with the power supply and wheels in a backpack.



  • This is is all great! Seems like the most recent improvement w the lil wood strip makes it taller too



  • @thegreck Nice change. I just saw this post. Making it a little taller is a nice idea too. I found putting the wheels farther apart helps with stability too.

    I actually just ordered a couple of wheels that I can screw directly onto the deck - because I'm just that lazy. I'll post pictures & a review when I get it completed. Here's the link to the least obtrusive side mount caster wheels I could find...

  • thats awesome ,really good idea,but I think if it is the foldable little scooter ,that would be better



  • Nice job, Dirt Cheap!

  • Thanks for all the tips here -- I really wanted something like this. I am close to finishing mine -- tried this hilariously large binder clip found on Amazon because I wanted to see if I could get away with only one clip, plus try out a swivel wheel. It works fairly well! Although ideally I'd love for FM or someone else to mass produce a perfect version that I could just buy.

    I glued a felt strip to one inner side of the clip because the metal on the grip tape was fingernails-on-a-chalkboard horrible. Also found that if I clip it on the corner of the board instead of the middle, I can drag it behind me like I would a roller suitcase.

    (Also as mentioned above, drilling through the clip suuuuuucks. Gave the task to a handy DIY-type buddy and the struggle was real.)

    I shared that video on FB a while back on here. Clever way to tow your board home... way better than carrying it. Thanks for officially sharing the link.
