Great service, prompt delivery. Website was easy to navigate. Got what I needed. [online store] had multiple misleading photos of this product, and trying to order the right thing was confusing, frustrating, and wasted a lot of my time. Have used etrailer before, and will again!

Works and it’s as expected Great and fast service. I will use etrailer for my trailer parts in future

They are awesome!!!!! However my cover for my trailer doesn’t fit and you guys haven’t responded to my requests for a bigger size.

I measured 2" OD on trailer and the Bearing Buddy Bras fitted nice and tight and look great. It was a tight fit and I am not sure I ordered the correct size but they are nice and snug.

The aging dual axle boat trailer I bought had Bearing Buddy brand caps on one side and some other type on the other. One of the "others" is split and the second looked as it might not last long. Other brand replacements did not seem look and feel as durable as Bearing Buddy so I ordered two. Packaged they had a disk insert to maintain shape, they fit snugly, and seem durable.

was what I expected.

These work great and are easy to instal l.

so far, so good



- BB17B
by:

What can I say? They cover my bearing buddies and stay secure. Before these I would have to remove my camper wheels because there was a plastic hub that inserted from inside the wheel to cover my bearing buddies. Now I have access anytime I feel the need to add some grease.

Product is standard bearing buddy bras. The etrailer.com shopping experience is excellent!! The website is very intuitive and user friendly, the product selection is excellent, and product was promptly shipped on time! Great experience, I’ve now a regular customer going forward! Thank You!!



- BB17B
by:

These fit my stainless steel bearing buddies perfectly. The trick is to measure the diameter of the bearing buddy and make sure you are ordering caps made for this diameter. This is important because stainless steel bearing buddies come in two, slightly different diameters.



- BB17B
by:

Came fast and fit great!



- BB17B
by:

First off I want to say, if you use your trailer a lot and do some serious highway driving, you would be foolish not to have "Bearing Buddies" on your hubs! The covers on mine were old and getting loose. These fit perfectly and will help me get on down the road without worrying about my wheel bearings.



- BB17B

I received exactly what I needed. Thx

As usual, etrailer had just what I was looking for and their website is easy to navigate!



- BB17B

Rebuilt my boat trailer using etrailer parts everything I required was readily available and carpet roll sized perfectly for 3 side 2by6



- BB17B
by:

I needed a replacement bib for my bearing buddy and ordered model 17B after obtaining some advice from the salesperson. At first I found it a bit snug on the hub but after immersing it in hot water it slipped on easily. Fits fine now. Totally happy. Will order again. I would suggest that a more economical way of mailing the product be considered. The cost of shipping was twice the cost of the item.



- BB17B
by:

Was so glad I found this site for parts! their prices are reasonable and they did not try and take advantage of the buyer with ridiculous shipping costs. I got my order very quickly. I will come back again!! Thanks etrailer.com

Great little product wouldn't have a trailer without them!

  • Replacement Bearing Buddy Bra With 2 Inch Diameter
    The Replacement Bearing Buddy Bras - Model 17B # BB17B have an outer diameter of 2 inches and are direct replacements for models 1781, 1781SS, 1810 and 1810SS Bearing Buddies. I assume this is the diameter of the cap you were referring to, and if so, these would work for you. I've added a link to a video review of these caps for you to check out as well.

  • Bearing Bra Size for Bearing Buddies that have a 2 Inch Outer Diameter
    If the outer diameter on your Bearing Buddies is 2 inches you will need # BB19B because it's outer diameter is 2-1/8 inches making the inner diameter a little less. If you happen to know the model Bearing Buddies you have I can double check that. Or if you know your outer bearing number that will help too.

  • How To Find The Right Replacement Bearing Buddy Bra

  • Replacement Bra for Bearing Buddy Bearing Protector
    The grease in your Bearing Buddy (and the grease behind it inside the hub bore) should have blocked any mud from actually entering the bearings.

If you need a new bra for your Bearing Buddy we offer them in 3 sizes: 2-7/16-inch O.D. # BB23B (the original size included with your Bearing Buddy) 2-1/8-inch...
