A Loose Board (ボロの板切れ boro no itakire ) is an item that appears throughout the Corpse Party series. It is an ordinary wooden plank that can be used to bridge relatively narrow gaps in the floor that would otherwise be uncrossable.
In the game, you can collect 2 different loose boards, one of which is reused later in the game. The first one you find is right at the start of the game in the starting classroom. It is used in getting though the gap in the staircase up to the second floor.
After you regain control of Satoshi Mochida's party, go back to the corridor in front of the starting classroom: you will be faced by a dead end, but the loose board will stay there, collect it and use it in the gap on the staircase on the other side of the second floor.
The third loose board is optional to get, as you can skip the Science Lab encounter. You will see the loose board in the room and while going to get it you will be attacked by the anatomical model. You will have to use the loose board to escape it.
The first loose board is found near the entrance, which is used to give you access to the second floor, much like is is in the CORPSE-PARTY.
The second loose board is found in the Science Lab, but unlike in CORPSE-PARTY, this one is needed. After you collect the anatomical model attacks you, use it to save Shiho Hasegawa and escape the science lab. You'll have to run back to it and collect it again. After you escape the Science Lab, you will use it to cross the gap right outside of it.
The last one appears in the trap room. Kaori Hasegawa will collect it and get trapped in the room. After you cal leave use it in the same place the last one was.
Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara find the first loose board in the classroom 1-A, the girls use to cross the gap leading to the first floor. After the girls realize that the entrance is jammed, they go back. An earthquake happens and the path back to the entrance is blocked, the girls pick the board back up and use it on the other side to bridge their way to the north side of the second floor.
The second loose board appears on the east side of the second floor, near the south staircase. The girls use it to bridge their way to the lavatories on the third floor.
Satoshi Mochida and Yuka Mochida find the first loose board in the Classroom 1-A, however, it switches locations depending on which side of the room you are in, to get it, you need to memorize it's exact location and ask Yuka to wait there until it switches. You use it to cross the gap to the first floor, much like in Chapter 1.
