Hey, anyone know where I can get a set of these for an 8’0" mini longboard? I never got them when I got the board, and now they are apparently scarce. I alos know that at one time there was an FCS Adaptor to make FCS’s fit the Lok Box. Help!
when is the install going to be up on the website?
this is some helpful information from Jim at lokbox
" yes the install is similar to futures. Use straight lam
ounce per hole) spread it around the hole to coat the foam, then
box, with slow even pressure. The main difference between lokbox and
futures, is the lokbox is designed to be adjustable cant-wise by 2 to 3
degrees. Also an installation or (dummy) fin is inserted into the
aid in getting your angles set properly as you can not only use an
up against the fin, but you can then sight down the board and tweak
little to get everything looking just right. The deeper you make the
hole, the more cant adjustment you get out of the box. Careful…don’t
too deep. All lokbox fins as well as dummy fins have 7 degrees built-in
the fins. If you set the box in just flush, on a flat bottomed board,
would have 7 degrees on the fins. Concave bottomed boards require
the box out a little to keep the finshed fin angle at 7 degrees.
side bites and gun fins have 5 degrees, so if you set the dummy fins at
the finished angle once the longboard side bites or gun fins are
will be 5 degrees. It is always a good idea to wipe the surface of the
with clean acetone!"
my observations are that the adjustable cant is achieved by a slightly rounded underside on the underneath of the flange which make tilting without getting big gaps under the flange possible. It also makes it a bit harder to rout a recess for the flange although i overcame this by making a bevelled flat recess and using micro balloons to put the boxes in. I suppose micro ballons would weaken the bonded structure, but because i was putting it into a multi layered sandwich i had glass running both below and above the flange which would have more than compensated
Thanks for posting up the desciption for lokbox install. Should have pics and possibly streaming vid up within the next month. Thanks www.lokboxfins.com
