Today, were going to review part number BB2441SS. These are the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors in a stainless steel construction. These Bearing Buddies are great for marine applications. The stainless construction will provide the best in corrosion resistance and the design of the Bearing Buddy makes an easy way to protect your bearings by keeping the water out, ensuring enough grease is in the hub. Basically, these Bearing Buddies will replace the grease cap on your actual hub. Remove the dust cap or grease cap and this would insert in place of that.
This will prevent wheel bearing failure by keeping water and dirt out of your hubs and bearings and then it allows the boat trailer wheels to be completely submerged and it stops corrosion and pitting on the bearings. It does provide an easily accessible grease fitting which makes adding grease to the bearings quick and simple. Inside, it will maintain slight controlled pressure about 3 psi with the spring-loaded piston which will prevent water from entering your hub. It will prevent overfilling and rear seal damage with an automatic pressure release feature. In other words, if you get too much grease in there and overfill it, it will release grease on the outside of this, seal on the inside, our piston, and the grease will just stay on your outer barrel here.
This part is constructed of stainless steel which will ensure long-lasting fit than your plastic or aluminum products. It will include the bras which are a rubber cover that will go over the Bearing Buddy and what that does is it keep any of the grease that might have overflowed into this outer barrel from getting dispersed on to your wheels or your trailer. This part does install easily. It is made in the USA. This one does fit the 2.441-inch hub bore which are commonly found on 4,400-pound, 5,200-pound, 6,000-pound and 7,000 pound of dexter axles.
This part does come with a lifetime warranty and it does contain two Bearing Buddies with the rubber covers on them. That should do it for part number BB2441SS.
