Default Fixed mount vs adjustable ones?

I prefer fixed ones, too bad adjustment is less precise...
With fixed mounts i have less loose bolts and maybe placebo effect better energy strike.....

I prefer the sliding mounts myself. Easier to make them work with wedges and I never run out of range.

I too prefer the sliding mounts. If you get them tight enough, they should be no more likely to loosen or shift than the fixed mounts. The captive nut is generally steel & replacable, so no worrying about stripping the aluminum threads in fixed mounts.

If I understand your boots are Luigino, these would be the ones: https://atomskates.com/collections/a...unting-nut-6mm

Thanks friend, Luigino bolts are low quality there not tight tolerance. So very loose fits.
Anyone other suggestion for better nuts?

These generic ones may work:

That type of "female thread with a base that fits in a slot" is called a tee-nut or weld nut. If you can extract the one from your boot and measure it, you may be able find an equivalent from an industrial parts supplier. E.g. this one has a base that is probably too big: https://www.mcmaster.com/90594a330
