    I found that gaffer's tape worked much much better to protect things. It adheres better than painter's or masking tape, and if far easier to remove than duct tape.
    Cheers Jim!

    How did you not scratch the rails when cutting the ends to shape with that blade?

    Dang man, this isn’t a terrible idea… I’ve been seeing some beat pints already. The pint label scratched off! Such a bummer

    wow that ductape thing really makes board bit more safe than just simple coloured tape under that tape 🙂

    How does the rail guard or tape protect the Onewheel? Is it just for aesthetics or is it extending life of the board?

    I have two ideas. Both personally tested.
    1. Gaffer's tape: Easy, cheap, quick. comes in variety of colors.
    2. Vinyl wrap: def need some experience working with Vinyl. Not as cheap as tape but cheaper than sidekicks. Better protection that Gaffer's or any other tape.

    I feel like I would just cut down some XR/+ sidekicks… however I have used vinyl tape to fix spots where my vinyl wrap had peeled off.

    This is great! Awesome idea 💡
    I concur with, Mario; there are some great gaffers tape out there but they also have varying types and adhesive. Some will be better than painters tape but some can be just as residue-ey (is that even a word??) as duct tape so choose wisely.

    not a bad idea for maybe the pint since there isn't anything available yet but honestly if you can't afford $35 rail guards than you probably shouldn't have spent $1k+ on a onewheel
