Will SkaterTrainers work with my skateboard and wheels?
Skatetrainer was made to work with modern trick skateboards (Popsicles).
Nearly all trick skateboards have wheels between 49 to 65 mm diameter (1.9 - 2.6 inches). SkaterTrainer skateboard wheel stoppers and training aids were designed to stretch around any of these wheel sizes and more. If you are concerned, most wheels have sizes printed on them. If the size has worn off, you can simply measure them...if they are about 2.0 inch diameter, then it will work. SkaterTrainer works with any width wheel.

Can't I just practice in the grass?
You can practice in the grass, but it is not the same. Its not as predictable of a surface as hard floors. There is no pop on your ollies, the timing is different, the landing is different, the grass is often wet, which damages your skateboard, and you get dirt in your bearings.
Can't I just use a crack in the sidewalk?
Sidewalk and driveway cracks do work and are the partial inspiration for the SkaterTrainers. Cracks are great for holding your board in place, but its 98% certain that you will not land in the crack. Most falls occur when you land. SkaterTrainers are like cracks that attach to your wheels. So when you throw ollies, shove-its, kickflips, heelfips, etc, you land stable.
