Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts CE10981 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring. This retainer ring helps you to mount a wobble roller to your boat trailer's roller bunk. The unit's constructed from a steel construction. It features a zinc plated finish to resist rust and corrosion.This is designed for holding a roller on shaft sizes of one and 1/8th inches, and three quarters of an inch. The unit would need to be installed using a pair of pliers, or any tool that can help you bend the ring into place around the shaft. The product is made in the USA, and the diameter of the actual ring here is 3/16ths of an inch.It's bent like this on purpose.

What you would do is, with your wobble roller on the shaft, you would want to use a washer. Then you take this and place it on the opposite side of the washer, so you'd have your wobble roller, washer, and now you have your retaining ring. Once you have it around the shaft, you take a pair of pliers or any tool that can help you bend the unit, and then you just pinch it together. You want to bring these two pieces around the shaft, nice and tight. That way when the shaft turns, this doesn't slide, and it actually provides a good enough grip to where it keeps your wobble roller in place.That's going to do it for today's look at the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring..

I had to replace 8 rollers on my boat trailer,the rollers came on time like etrailer said they would and the ones I purchased fits my easy loader trailer perfectly.I pulled one hog ring off,and yes it snapped in half so I got ahold of etrailer again and got the heavy-duty hog rings got them today on time and they worked perfectly,I ordered the hog ring pliers forget buying them they will not work with the heavy rings.I used a vise to bend the rings close to a snug fit the placed them in the holes and used a set of channel locks to finish the job works perfectly, hope this helps other people out. Thank you etrailer associates for your help,will keep you in mind for future orders!

Everything is in excellent working order!Thanks for your help!!

by:

Ok but didn't work on my application of a 3/4 shaft way to sloppy




by:

Good parts at fair prices, quick shipping as well.




by:

very good to do business with




by:

Perfect for old EZ loader




by:

These retainer rings (hog rings) are a perfect fit for my trailer that has 3/4" rods that the wobble rollers fit on. I searched all over and finally found them on etrailer...where I obviously should have started my search for anything dealing with a boat trailer!




by:

Good quality and service




by:

it works very stiff but that is what you want.




by:

I installed these on my boat trailer and they were absolutely perfect for my needs. The rollers are now functioning 100% and I no longer have any rubber roller marks on the boat. A perfect solution to imperfect rollers.




by:

Fast, prompt service, excellent product.




by:

Thank you so very much for immediately standing by delivery of our order. Our previous package must have been stolen, as we never received it . When I reported this to your company, I was immediately assured it would be reordered an shipped to me. Package received!!!! Thank you very much. Now we can repair the trailer.

Fast, accurate delivery




by:

Great product great price awesome shipping and customer service




by:

Replacement trailer rollers and parts were exactly as described and arrived as scheduled. I would order again as needed




by:

You sent the correct item I needed; I would like to have received it a little sooner but that's okay. We can finish replacing rollers on the trailer.




by:

Tried to use these clips but they were impossible to crimp. I was replacing rollers on boat trailer. Not even my channel locks could budge these. Went with axle caps instead. Much easier to use. The reviews for special crimping tool for these got poor reviews overall. You can't really get a good grip with the channel locks because of the overlapping edge of the rollers that get in the way.




by:

Requires a lot of pressure to install on the Wobbly Roller. I am not sure what tool would have made the installation easier. The angled hog ring pliers were too small.

Great!

Needed these to replace rusted, worn clips on my Sea Lion trailer. Perfect fit, and the videos to help install were very useful. Great customer service too. Parts arrived quickly, and were nicely packed. Thanks etrailer!


Comments
Working as stated after one year, all is good so far
Rich F - 10/09/2015


by:

Great Prices and selections. Very good correspondence with a slight delay on the order. Very prompt in receiving the order once stock was in. The Wobble wheels and the locks went on well. The replacement locks were of a better quality than what I took off. It caused me to grind the washers a little to make it all fit. It was a quality install, if I say so myself. Keeping Etrailer.com as a go to parts store.




by:

They are installed and the trailer rollers stayed in place. Service was good and the product was what I expected.
The only issue was getting the right pliers to install the keepers


Comments
No problems still working like new

by:

Just finished installation on ez loader trailer,nice fit,easy install.Used to replace 33 year old rollers that were shot.By doing so lifted boat up a couple of inches so it is no longer dangerously close to fenders.Can't comment yet on performance or longetivity but appear to be a decent product.I appreciate the speed with which they arrived,might be able to enjoy a couple more weeks on the water.The hog rings overall were larger than the existing but worked fine on 1" shaft.Thanks




by:

Measured and ordered the parts to replace the rollers on my EZLoader trailer. Shipment showed up super fast and was able to get it done right the first time. There is a helpful video on you tube that shows how to install these rollers. My boat now glides on and off my trailer!
Thank you for the great service!




by:

Ordered Hog rings and washers. Absolutely happy with the quality, level of galvanization and especially price! Less than half compared to local retail.




by:

All products I ordered are exactly as advertised. The shipping was super fast the person who helped me with order was very helpful. I will give a better review of product when weather breaks. Thanks for making my buying experience so easy.


Comments
Everything worked out as expected

The wobble roller retainer rings should be a must have for anyone with rollers on there trailer. Over time I have replaced almost all my rings ., especially if you use your boat, like me in salt water.

  • How to Install the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981
    Basically, you put the open end around the shaft on each end of the roller then use some pliers to clamp it closed so it is tight to the shaft. This allows the roller to roll but stay in position. I made a video showing what this would look like for you.

  • Can a Wobble Roller on a Boat Trailer Be Held In Place Using Only Retaining Rings
    A wobble roller retainer ring such as # CE10981 can work to hold the roller in place provided you are using the right size ring for the shaft of the roller. For example # CE10981 will fit a 3/4 inch and 1-1/8 inch shaft. You would want the weight evenly distributed to avoid uneven wear and the potential loss of a roller. The boat itself may not be balanced which could be causing the issue. It is also possible that the trailer itself, not just the rollers, needs to be checked and repaired...

  • What is Diameter of Boat Trailer Roller Retainer Ring and Will It Fit a 1 Inch Shaft
    The diameter of the retainer ring # CE10981 is 3/16 inches. Yes, you could use it on a 1 inch shaft as well.

  • Can a Wobble Roller Retainer be Replaced with a Cotter Pin
    Essentially the Wobble Roller Retainer pin part # CE10981 is a cotter pin. I would recommend using this though as it was designed to fit under a wobble roller. A cotter pin might interfere depending on it's size.

  • 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.

  • Installing/Replacing # DL21562 Rocker Roller On A Boat Trailer
    Not at all, the procedure is really very simple. You'd use pliers to remove the existing Hog or Retainer Ring, remove the old washer (if present) and remove the existing roller. Install the new roller, replace the # CE10983 washer and install a new # CE10981 retaining ring by slipping it over the shaft and crimping it with pliers. This roller is designed to work on a 3/4 inch diameter shaft.

  • Are There Different Sized Wobbler Roller Retaining Rings?
    There are different sized wobbler wheel retaining rings, however we only carry the one size of retaining ring. The CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring - Zinc-Plated Steel - Qty 1 # CE10981. This is designed for holding roller on 1-1/8" shaft size and 3/4" shaft size only. The diameter of this retainer ring is 3/16 inch.

  • Are Special Tools Needed to Attach Wobbler Rollers to a Shaft Using Retaining Rings
    I have tried to use channel locks before and they do not work all that well. You need what are called hog ring pliers such as # PTW88003. These pliers also come with fasteners but for boat trailer rollers you would want to use a retainer ring such as # CE10981 as an example.

  • What Holds Wobble Rollers onto a Trailer
    The Yates Wobble Roller # YR440R that you referenced should work well for you since it has the same 3/4 inch shaft as your trailer. Wobble rollers are held on with retainer rings like the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981. Basically, you put the open end of the retainer ring around the shaft on each end of the roller then use some pliers to clamp it closed so it is tight to the shaft. This allows the roller to roll but stay in position. Basically, the ring has to gently but...

  • Removing a Retaining Ring from a Wobble Roller
    Probably the easiest way to remove a retainer ring, such as # CE10981, to replace a wobble roller is to grip one end with some vise grips and the other end with some pliers. Then twist in opposite directions to make the opening wide enough for it to slip off. If you have a rotary tool with a cutting attachment it would make short work of it.

  • New Rollers and Hardware to Replace Yates 530 R Rollers
    You will want the Yates # YR530R-8P in heavy duty rubber. This wobble roller has a 5 inch diameter and is 3 inches wide. It takes a 1 inch diameter shaft. Bushing length is 1-1/2 inches. Clips like part # CE10981 are crimped on the ends of the shaft to keep the roller in place. We don't carry a washer compatible with a 1 inch diameter shaft. I have linked a video review of the roller for you.

  • Removing Retainer Ring When Replacing Wobble Roller On Boat Trailer
    Taking the retainer ring like part # CE10981 out when removing a wobble roller can be tricky, particularly when they tend to break. My best recommendation is to use two needle nose pliers if you can get a good grip when removing the ring. You can grab both sides at one time and hopefully not have one end slip inside the roller shaft if it should break.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Wobble Rollers
    Thank you for the photo and your rollers are definitely worn, and I do recommend replacing them. In order to find the correct wobble rollers, what you'll need to do is measure your current rollers, both the diameter and the width, as well as the diameter of the shaft. For example, the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller # YR530R-8P measures 5" diameter, is 3" wide, and is designed to fit a 1" shaft. I have added a link below to our entire selection of rollers for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Wobble Roller Installation
    The boat trailer replacement wobble rollers we offer include both black rubber and non-marking thermoplastic types that you can see by clicking on the link provided for you. It is a good idea to use washer on both ends of the new roller to prevent binding on the cotter pin. You will want to match up the overall outside diameter and inside shaft diameter of the replacement roller to your original to ensure it will fit and perform correctly. We offer rollers with as much as a 5-inch outside...
