    So..(problem)

    I can't really describe what's happening but every time I skidstop or go up hill, the crank slips. It goes loose and really trips me out when I'm trying to go up hill or skid stopping. I dont know if it's my rear cog or my cranks but I want to fix it before I end up in a messy accident.

    Check your cranks
    Run a front brake so you don't have to skid so often.

    Your crank arms - even if they are loose - won't give the feeling of "slipping". As suggested, tighten your cog/lockring.
