Bearing Buddy installed diagram

Bearing Buddy Operation

Replace your existing grease cap with a Bearing Buddy to ensure a safe, easy way to monitor and control the level of grease in your axle hub. To adjust the amount of grease in the hub, use a grease gun to add more through the appropriate fitting. Adding grease moves the Bearing Buddy spring-loaded piston outward 1/8".

The O-ring inside the barrel of the Bearing Buddy maintains a seal from the outside. The interior of the Bearing Buddy is pressurized, preventing water from entering the barrel and diluting the grease.

An automatic pressure-relief feature is built into the Bearing Buddy. When the device is full, grease will seep around the edges of the piston and into the barrel. This prevents overfilling that can damage the inner seal.

You can manually check the grease level in your Bearing Buddy by pressing on the edge of the piston. If you can rock or move the piston, the hub is properly filled.

Your product arrived on time and undamaged. It installed exactly as described in the literature. I am very pleased with my new Bearing Buddy's. As a side note I noticed a small amount of chrome machining debris inside the hub of the housings. It was easily cleaned out with a rag before installation. These Bearing Buddy's are installed on a 32 year old utility trailer I am refurbishing. Although the trailer is small (4 x 8) it has a 5000# axle and has seen some pretty tough use. Ive attached a pic of the trailer undergoing refurbishment along with a couple of pics of the installed Bearing Buddy's. Excellent product and service! 107659

This product is as good as their rep have used them before on a boat trailer never had a bearing go out as long as I used the buddy bearings they are great! Service was just as good. These bearings were installed on a heavy duty low boy trailer. No pictures trailer is in South Texas about 300 miles from my location. Hauling oil field equipment.

Review from a similar Bearing Buddy Chrome Plate Bearing Protectors


Bearing Buddy is a good product. I had to use a block of wood and a small sledge hammer to put them on. They would not go on with a rubber mallet. I measured 2.045" and the closest one from Bearing Buddy was 2.047"They are on and will not come off.... The trailer is a kit that I bought at depot in 1997... I would recommend this product 98794

Stellar eTrailer.com Tech and Customer support and quality product. I have an imported folding trailer (HF 90154) & they do not stock protective hub covers for their trailer. I contacted their customer support they provided me the hub dimensions (dust cap by diameter 52mm) , I then shared that info with etrailer tech support who directed me to the right bearing buddy product that I needed (2.047" or part# BB2047). They shipped and delivered it in a timely manner. I installed it this morning and it seems to be working flawlessly as I would have expected from bearing buddy! 117085

part number BB2047 will fit the following Harbor Freight Trailers.. 90154, 42709, 90153.42708, 2575 and 2948, as all those trailers use the same Harbor Freight replacement dust cover, received mine and they installed with little effort great product..Thanks etrailer,com

Review from a similar Bearing Buddy Chrome Plate Bearing Protectors


I purchased the Bearing Buddy for my Haul Master Trailer. Harbor Freight didn't carry their knock off version for this hub size. It was easy to find on the Etrailer site, and arrived in quick order even during the holiday weeks. I installed the first one following the instructions similar to several Youtube videos, and pumped in some grease as directed. As I completed the second Bearing Buddy install and filled the grease, the fitting broke off at the hub. The grease fitting was weak and broke off. l removed the Bearing Buddy by tapping on each side until it worked out. I was in luck since I had a spare grease fitting the same size to use. I reinstalled and completed the job. I was surprised that the fitting failed, but I still like the product! 111685

Review from a similar Bearing Buddy Chrome Plate Bearing Protectors


I ordered a set of these to put on my Harbor Freight folding trailer. Towed it 220 miles at 65 to 75 MPH and the hubs never got hotter than a warm paper cup of coffee. I will now be ordering two more sets of these for my boat trailer and camper. If you have a trailer without these these, this should be the first thing you replace! Don't need anything other than a block of wood and a small sledge hammer (How often do you hear that!) to install and then you'll also need grease and a grease gun. ETrailer was naturally expedicious about the order. Here sooner than expected. 42430

Anyone with any trailer experience has already heard of "bearing buddy" and if it wasn't a great product there wouldn't be so many copy cats. What impressed me the most was the fact they had them in the 2.3" size, and even more impressive is etrailer was the only place I could find them. To top it all off, I needed them in a hurry and etrailer got them here on time. They are great to use on any trailer, but I would never have a boat trailer without them, EVER. Great product. Great distributor. Thanks etrailer! 90584

Review from a similar Bearing Buddy Chrome Plate Bearing Protectors


I bought these to go on a little Harbor Freight trailer I built. Of course, Harbor Freight doesn't sell bearing protectors that fit their own hubs. When I first went to install them, I thought they were too big-- but a couple of whacks with a hammer and they slipped right in. Fit like a glove, and really did the trick. Thanks again, etrailer.com! One more thing-- they arrived a day early. I can't say enough good things about etrailer.com! 85801

Product arrived much quicker than I expected, in fact, 2 days after ordering. Have used bearing buddies for several years. I had a very old trailer that I was putting them on and the size of the hub was smaller than the normal 1980. This was the only place that I could find this size in a quick search. I did have to ease the hub size slightly, but they fit well now. 54892

I wasn't sure if these would fit integral hub rims from the 50's, but sure enough, they did. They fit pretty tight, so I'm not worried about losing them, and they will save the headaches of pulling the bearings every year to re-pack them, as long as the springs have a little compression on them, I know they're good to go. 16129

Expert Answers about Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 2441 - Chrome Plated (Pair) - BB2441Do you have a question about this Grease Caps?


  • Bearing Buddies for a 6,000 Pound Dexter Axle with 8 Lug Hub
  • Check the outer bearing and race numbers stamped into the metal of the bearing and race in the hub. Most 6,000 pound 8 lug wheels we carry use outer bearing # 14125A if it is an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. If it is an 8 on 8 bolt pattern, it may use # 506849 outer bearing. If you have the 14125A outer bearing, you can use Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors, # BB2717SS, or # BB2717.

  • Determining Size of Bearing Protector Needed for 2001 Load Rite Trailer
  • The best way to determine the size of bearing buddy needed would be to take a highly accurate measurement of your hub bore using a digital caliper. I have edited a photo for you that shows this dimension. If you happened to know the reference number from your outer wheel bearings, the proper bearing protector could be determined. If you would care to reply with either the hub bore dimension or the outer bearing number, I would be happy to suggest a bearing protector for you.

  • Do Trailer Hub Bearing Buddies Also Work with Inner Bearings
  • A Bearing Buddy allows you to pump grease into the center of the hub all the way back to the grease seal. A double lip seal should be used to prevent grease from blowing out the seal when added. You can pre-pack the bearings if you wanted to but that would negate the function of the Bearing Buddy. The outer bearing is mentioned because that is how the hub bore size is determined.
