Are you a longboard or skateboard collector ? You want to showcase and store your boards collection in an elegant way ? Then 3D print these magnetic holders !

I was looking for an easy solution to hang nicely my longboards and cruisers collection. I also wanted to have to graphics side visible and a discrete hanging system. Since I often use magnets in office (it is made from a freight container), I asked myself if it was possible to hang a board vertically, with strong magnets placed on the bolts...

This my first instructable and entry for the 3D Printing contest, don't forget to vote if you like it ;-)

Step 1: Materials

This is want you will need :

- 8 x strong neodynium magnets, axially magnetized.

For metric system : 15mm diameter and 8 mm height

For imperial system : 9/16 diameter and 3/8 height

You can easilly find it online. For example here

- 2 x 3D printed Holders. You can download the files here :

For metric system : here

for imperial system : here

I printed mine at a local Hub in Black PLA.

- Strong epoxy glue

I used the 2-K from UHU

- Screws for the fixture on the wall

- 4 x Screws and wall plugs

I used 4mm Diameter Spax


<p>Thanks <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/Genghis72" rel="nofollow">Genghis72</a> - I'm very excited about this Instructable. Please see my initial test. Looking forward to getting it on the wall. <br>Next I'm gonna try my hand at making it out of wood by using the lessons from the free Instructables Woodworking Class (https://www.instructables.com/class/Woodworking-Cla.... </p>
<p>Nice! It surprises, me every time how strong these magnets are!</p>
<p>Reasonably good design, but I thought it was audacious to be charging for it, if you want to promote it freely here. </p><p>I mean, the design isn't even very optimized. <br><br>I'm not against you making money for sophisticated projects and ideas, but there's so much good will that comes from sharing this and so little profit from trying to sell it. <br><br>Not surprised other people made a free design in a jiffy that is the same thing....</p>
<p>I did a version of this. Feel free to download :http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1344490 . Great Instructable!</p>
<p>I cant get my hands on 15x8mm magnets here in Malaysia , so I got some 15x5mm ring magnets instead .... hope it works</p>
<p>I wish there was a way to do this without 3D printing :( Any ideas? Also...could it be hung horizontally? Does it really matter how the board is oriented on the wall?</p>
<p>wood?</p>
<p>Yes, it also works with wood. I have made the first prototypes with. The 3D Printed version is just more precise and easier to build.</p><p>The matter how the board is oriented doesn't plays a big role. Horizontally works also fine !</p>
<p>Hi,</p><p>I'm very interested, but before I buy the drawing, I'd like to know how many cm&sup3; or in&sup3; it uses so I can estimate my costs.</p>
<p>Love this idea! Great work!</p>
<p>wow. brilliant idea! very clean looking</p>
<p>Brilliant. We had a bunch of scooters in the design department hallway in university. I wish we had made some sweet magnetic holders for them.</p>
<p>Mega, MegaAwesome </p>
<p>Great idea, Think Ill try make one a lil thinner. appreciate the inspiration. </p>
Fantastic!! Voted for you!!
Cool design! Are the magnets strong enough to hold up longboards?
This is so sick!!! Dude, I'm gonna have to refurbish and do this with my best up old z flex. Looks awesome.
<p>Awesome idea! (And awesome board, too!)</p>
<p>Are the trucks on skateboards a standard size, or would you have to print a different-sized hanger for each brand of board?</p>
<p>Nowadays have the trucks the same size. The only difference in the mounting is the distance between the two holders.</p>
<p>Cool, I can make one as a gift, then.</p>
<p>Very cool! I love the clean and simple design.</p>
<p>Thank you very much ! That's exactly what I was expecting with this design ;-)</p>
great idea. How well do you think this would hold a bigger longboard?
<p>Yes, I tried with my Pintail (about 1m long) as well. It works also great. I will upload pictures as soon as possible !</p>
<p>Thanks for all the nice comments ! This is my very first instructable and I am participating at 3D Printing Contest, you can vote then if you like it ;-)</p>
off to buymagnets
nice idea
<p>Super and very elegant. I do not have skateboard but the simplicity in meeting the needs is super smart and intelligently crafted.</p>
