Worked perfect for replacing wheels on my hand truck. I couldn’t find the size I needed locally, but found them on etrailer!!

Still working after a year !

The cap nuts I received were a perfect fit and work great. It’s good to have my boat trailer back in service.


Service was excellent.
I'm going to use
eTrailer for all my future needs.


Great replacement part for boat trailer roller KC


Just what I needed and fast delivery! Great service!


the price is good and the shipping cost is ok


Purchased this for my air compressor wheel axle. I couldn’t find this size at multiple stores where I live. Searched on etrailer, ordered them, and received them quickly. Air compressor now has new wheels and are firmly in place.

One year later, my compressor wheels are still held in place solidly.

Great product.


great service and communication provided along with products that work well thank you George


Exactly what I needed. Last year, I bought a [trash can] from [hardware store]. It's a fantastic product, but it uses 5/8" pal nuts to hold the wheels on the axle.

When one became dislodged and lost, my trash can was out of commission. A trip to [hardware store] and [industrial supplies company] was unsuccessful, and [trash can brand] only offered entire wheel kits for their products. etrailer saved the day by carrying these and selling them in small quantities.


Needed 2 to hold the wheels on my pressure washer and could not find any at the hardware stores around here. Just what I needed and so far are working good.

Still working after a year of service.
Lowell - 07/19/2019


I needed to replace a wheel on a recycling container and this nut was the EXACT replacement part. A Harbor Freight wheel and this nut were the low cost repair and had me rolling again quickly. Shipping was very quick and allowed tracking.


Had hand truck with 5/8” axel. Lost an axel cap moving lawn & garden debris bags. Checked Lowe’s & Home Depot hard-to-find hardware trays to no avail. Largest size was 1/2 “. Found your company on Internet while searching “axel caps”—it was among first to pop up! Ordered a bag of extras as I know eventually I will lose another! Thanks to etrailer, I found the right sized axel cap—and I don’t even own a trailer!

Doing what its supposed to do.

fast delivery durning the holiday season, very impressive


Have been looking for these for awhile, occasionally one will pop off and I wanted replacements.


wil install next weekend but all good that why i deal with u all
haven had issue relating to products nor etrailer staff
will contiuned to buy no matter what

after the crash in 2008 all discout store closed and all i have is you all

keep up with the good work

I have 6 keel roller and i fish alot is salt
they broke which is normal
i replaced rubber roller and needed the caps to finish off
i order rubber keel roller from you befere the project
didn't remove boat from trailer just locked toung to truck and bottle jacked boat very carefully then added 6 x 6 wood , piece of cake


These cap nuts worked perfect for my needs. 5/8" size are not available locally and these are very strong and stay put.


Works.... so far


Ordered for spare, but looks like it will work fine.


A great selection of trailer parts at a great price.


worked perfect. Fixed my recycle bin's wheel.


I looked in all the usual places for a simple part; a 5/8" axle cap for a two wheel dolly. No one had anything bigger than 1/2". Even on the net, I did come across one other source but you had to but quantity. So I was very happy to find etrailer. I got the part in a couple of days. The price was very reasonable. i'll keep them on my list for future searches.


My hand truck lost it's friction fastener that keeps the wheel on the axle. This inexpensive, but highly functional, fastener solved the problem.

Still working great!

Fit perfectly , 1 day late on delivery but it didn't matter thank you


I have never had a problem with etrailer. I needed a cap nut and couldn't find it anywhere else. Thank you etrailer.

  • Does Clip Need to be Installed to Keep Replacement Cap Nut # CE10801 on Roller Shaft
    The Replacement Cap Nut # CE10801 that you referenced does not require a pin or other accessory to stay on a 5/8" roller shaft. It was designed to stay in place during the normal use of your roller shaft.

  • How to Remove Cap Nut on Roller Shaft
    Cap nuts, like the part # CE10801, are best removed with a pair of pliers to pry it off. Since these are intended to be used only once you need to make sure you have some replacements handy for when you need to put them back on. This part is for a 5/8" roller shaft. If you need something else I have linked our selection for you to check out.

  • If Cap Nut Measurement the Total Width
    The measurements for the 1/2" Cap Nut # CE10800 and 5/8" Cap Nut # CE10801 are referring to the cap portion. The correct cap nut will be the one that has the corresponding diameter of your roller shaft.

  • Part Needed to Secure Wobble Roller to 5/8 inch Shaft
    For a pal nut designed to fit a 5/8 inch shaft you would want the part # CE10801 which will secure to the end of a 5/8 inch shaft. We don't have a retainer ring for that shaft size.

  • How to Reinstall a Missing Pal Nut on a Keel Roller
    It sounds like you had a pal nut like # CE10801 come off. Have a helper get a piece of lumber like a piece of 2x4 and hold the end of it up against the pal nut on the other side of the roller. That will give you something to hit against when you install the nut on the other side of the roller shaft. If you're missing the pal nut, we offer them for 5/8 inch roller shafts as the part # CE10801 you'd looked at or for a 1/2 inch, use # CE10800.

  • Installing Pal Nuts On Trailer Rollers
    To attach a pal nut (part # CE10801) to the end of a roller shaft, you would simply tap it into place with a hammer or mallet. The easiest way to do this is fully assemble the roller, shaft and bracket before installing it on the trailer. Place the pal nut on the floor, open end up. Place the shaft through the roller and place roller and shaft in the bracket. Then, turn the assembly on its side with the shaft inserted into the pal nut on the floor. Place the other pal nut on the other...

  • Boat Trailer Roller Brackets and Pal Nuts
    Most boat trailer bow and keel rollers do use pal nuts like # CE10801 to secure the rubber roller to the support shaft and mounting bracket. From your photo I cannot tell quite what type of set-up you have. Since most of our rollers use galvanized mounts like # CE10403G and the others shown on the other linked page it may be easier and safer to install a new roller bracket.

  • 5/8 Pal Nut Needed for 6-3/4 Long Roler Shafts with 5/8 Diameter
    The Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts Kit # CE10725A includes pal nuts that fit a 5/8" diameter shaft. We actually don't have these available separately as part # CE10801. Just change the quantity to 6 before adding the product to your cart and you are ready to check out!

  • How Much Shaft is Used When Installing Roller with Palnuts
    To give you an idea how much length of a shaft the # CE10801 takes up the part # CE10401G is a roller assembly that holds a 5 inch long roller and the shaft length is overall 6-1/4 inches. So that means you pick out the shaft length by adding 1-1/4 inches to the length of the roller you are using. This setup uses the same palnuts.

  • Recommended Installation Hardware for a Wobble Rollers
    The recommended way to secure wobble roller is to use wobble roller retainers like the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981. The part # CE10981, can be used for 1-1/8 inch shaft size and 3/4-inch shaft size. You will slide the wobble roller onto the shaft then use the correct size washer for the size shaft you have. Then, you will put the retainer ring around the shaft and squeeze the open ends of the ring around the shaft til it holds the washer and roller to the shaft, but...

  • Installing Boat Trailer Roller Assembly
    The CE Smith Spool Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel and Black Rubber - 4" # CE32100G can simply have a pal nut removed to pull out the pin and remove the roller and then install the bracket. Reinstall the pin and roller with the pal nut/cap nut. If you do this carefully it won't damage the pal nut, however if you don't then you can use # CE10801 to replace it. It is possible to install the unit without removing the roller depending on the angle you use for the hardware.

  • Securing Keel and Bow Rollers to a Bracket on a Boat Trailer
    When installing rubber rollers like a keel or bow roller there are a couple of parts in addition to the roller you usually need. First, the roller needs to mount to a bracket of some kind. For example, if you are using a 5/8 inch steel shaft you could use the One Piece Bracket, # 408300. The bracket bolts to the trailer, the shaft goes through the compatible roller and bracket and it is held on the bracket using 2 Pal Nuts (Qty 1), # CE10801. Like any part, over time, the pal nuts may...

  • Can a Rubber Cap Replace a Pal Nut on a Roller on a Boat Trailer
    A lot of people use the rubber end cap # DL21558 but I would prefer to use a pal nut myself because it seems more secure to me since rubber is more pliable than metal. I would just trust a pal nut more. Go with a pal nut # CE10801 for a 5/8 inch diameter shaft.

  • What is the Best Way to Remove a Pal Nut
    The best way to remove a pal nut would be to either pry it off with a screwdriver or use a pair of pliers to wrestle it off the shaft. Pal nuts are considered a one-time use item, so you do not need to be gentle removing them. If you need a replacement, we offer pal nuts for a 5/8 inch diameter roller shaft as part # CE10801.

  • How to Remove a Pal Nut
    A pal nut is not re-usable, so there is no need to be overly gentle when removing it. Simply grab the nut with a pair of pliers and bend it off. Once you apply a bit of pressure, the nut will bend which will allow you to easily remove it. We offer replacement pal nuts for a 5/8 inch roller shaft, part # CE10801.

  • Availability of Replacement Cap for 1/2" Roller Shaft
    We do have 1/2" replacement cap nuts just like the CE Replacement Cap Nut # CE10801 that you referenced. The 1/2" diameter cap nut is listed as part # CE10800 on our site. If you would like to have a few extra on hand then I recommend going with the part # CE10800A instead which includes a quantity of 8.

  • How to Install Boat Keel Rollers When Replacing V Bunks on Trailer
    It looks like you are on the right track. I would use the Universal Roller Brackets, # MBSPB, that you mentioned along with a 8 inch Long Keel Roller, # DL21712, a 5/8 inch Steel Shaft, and two pal nuts # CE10801. All of this is dependent on your trailer having and 8 inch area that the brackets can be installed in and adjusted for the roller to contact the keel of the boat. If you would like to send photos of the boat trailer, I would be glad to make a more specific recommendation.

  • What Secures the Yates Keel Roller part # YR800Y to the Roller and Bracket
    If you have a Yates Keel Roller part # YR800Y, the bracket it installs onto, and a roller but no way to secure it all together you are only missing pal nuts. For that you would want the part # 408600. To attach a pal nut (part # CE10801) to the end of a roller shaft, you would simply tap it into place with a hammer or mallet. The easiest way to do this is fully assemble the roller, shaft and bracket before installing it on the trailer. Place the pal nut on the floor, open end up. Place...

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Diameter Keel Roller for a Boat Trailer
    If you are looking to reuse the current roller shafts that you have you will want to first measure the diameter of them so that you get a matching keel roller for that shaft. You also will want to measure the length of the roller so that you get the correct size in that regard as well. The part # YR5213-5 that you referenced is 5 inches long and designed to fit a 5/8 inch shaft. For a 5/8 inch pal nut that will hold the shaft to the bracket you would want the part # CE10801. If you need...

  • How To Find Correct Length Keel Roller For Older Trailer
    I can help you find the correct sized keel rollers that you need. Most Keel Rollers fit either a 5/8 inch shaft or a 1/2 inch diameter shaft. You want to know the diameter of the shaft that the rollers fit on. The easiest way to figure out the length of the Keel Roller that you need is to measure the distance between the brackets on the roller assembly. All of the 10 or 12 inch Keel Rollers we carry fit a 5/8 inch diameter shaft. I recommend Yates Keel Roller part # YR12244-125EC if your...
