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..

This was a replacement for the OEM product placed on my Tidewater trailer. It fit the bill exactly. Shai was very helpful getting the right size roller, washer, and hog clips to ensure that my installation went smoothly. I was in a rush and the 2-day shipping came through as well. Overall a great experience. 290405

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. 666797

  • How to Install Wobble Rollers on Older Boat Trailer
  • If you have enough of the shaft still intact then you can use the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981 and a Wobble Roller Washer # CE10983 for the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller # YR343R-6P for a 3/4" shaft. Otherwise you may need to get a new shaft and use the above products to secure the rollers. To install the retainer ring you can use ring pliers like part # PTW88003.

  • Hardware Needed for Replacing Wobble Rollers on Boat Trailer
  • The shafts in your picture do look a bit rusty but most likely they will still work. But you have to inspect them all to make sure they only have surface rust. You'll also need the washer part # CE10982 and the retainer ring part # CE10981 to install the wobble roller part # YR530R-5P you mentioned.

  • 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. This is a fairly standard size and that is why we don't carry others. If you need a washer for this install, I recommend the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 3/4"...

  • Key Dimensions for Selecting Boat Trailer Wobble Rollers
  • Boat trailer wobble rollers like # YR500YW-7P and not trailer-specific or brand-specific so if their dimensions match up you'll be fine using them as replacements. The key things to note are the size of the shaft hole in the roller, which is about an inch so that it fits well on a 7/8-inch diameter roller, and its overall diameter (5-inches) and width (3-inches). Clips like part # CE10981 are crimped on the ends of the shaft to keep the roller in place using Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003.

  • Wobble Roller Along With Washer And Retaining Ring
  • The Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller - Heavy-Duty Rubber - 5" Diameter - 1-1/8" Shaft # YR530R-9P is normally retained with the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring - Zinc-Plated Steel - Qty 1 # CE10981 along with the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 1-1/8" Shaft - Zinc-Plated Steel # CE10982. This is the only retainer ring we carry with the exception of the ones that come with the Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003.

  • Boat Trailer Wobble Roller Recommendation to Fit 3/4 inch Diameter Shaft
  • We have wobble rollers specifically designed for 3/4 inch shafts like yours. For that we have the part # YR343R-6P which has a center hole diameter just slightly under 7/8 inch to fit the 3/4 inch shaft the way it needs to. If you need a washer to go along with it you'd need the part # CE10983 and for a retainer ring part # CE10981.

  • Wobble Roller, Hog Ring and Washer for an EZ Loader Boat Trailer
  • The Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller, # YR500YW-8PEZ, is exactly what you need for your 1999 EZ Loader boat trailer. The bushings are included with this roller. For a hog ring, we offer part # CE10981 and you can use part # SW1000 for a washer. At this time, we do not have wobble roller sets or kits that fit a 1 inch shaft.

  • Boat Trailer Wobble Rollers for 1 Inch Diameter Shaft
  • Judging by the diameter of the shaft the roller fits on, I'm assuming you're needing a wobble roller. We offer two different wobble rollers that will fit a 1 inch shaft, part # YR530R-8P which is black rubber, and is 5 inches in diameter and # YR500YW-8P which is TPR (thermo plasticized rubber) and is also 5 inches in diameter. You'll also need the retaining clip, part # CE10981. We sell the rollers individually, not in packs with multiple pieces. You can see product demonstration...

  • Tool Recommendation for Installing Retainer Ring for Wobble Rollers
  • Sounds like you are looking for a way to secure the # CE10981 to the shaft for the installation of the part # YR343R-6P. A decent set of pliers like the part # PTW88003 would do the trick. Or a set of channel locks.

  • 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.
    view full answer...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommendation For Retainer Ring to Hold Wobble Roller to 3/4-Inch Shaft
  • The CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring, part # CE10981, can be used for 1-1/8 inch shaft size and 3/4-inch shaft size. You will need to choose the correct size washer along with the retainer ring for installation on your 3/4 -inch shaft. The washer you will need is the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 3/4-Inch Shaft, part # CE10983. 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...

  • Are Parts Available for Yates 5 Inch Wobble Rollers?
  • We carry boat trailer hardware though not all parts for the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller 5" Diameter # YR500YW-6P. We do offer Wobble Roller Washer for 3/4" Shaft # CE10983 and Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981. I have added a link for you to all of our available boat trailer parts so you can take a look.

  • Washer and Retainer Ring Recommendation for Use with Wobble Roller # YR500YW-8PEZ
  • Wit the wobble rollers we offer like the part # YR500YW-8PEZ you would want to use the wobble roller washer part # CE10982 and the retainer ring part # CE10981.

  • 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...

  • Washer and Pin to Use with the CE Smith Wobble Roller YR440R
  • For washers to go with the part # YR440R we have the part # CE10983. Wobble rollers are held on with retainer rings like the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981. This gets clamped so that the holes on your shaft get pinned by the ring.
    view full answer...

  • 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.

  • How To Install New Wobble Rollers, Washers, And Retaining Rings
  • The way to install the new # YR343R-6P roller is pretty simple. You'd can use pliers or channel locks to remove the existing retainer ring and the old washer. Then remove the old roller. install the new roller part # YR343R-6P and washer part # CE10983, and install the new retainer ring part # CE10981 by slipping it over the shaft and crimping it with the pliers or channel locks. This roller is designed to work on a 3/4 inch diameter shaft.

  • Diameter of Spindle Washer # SW1000 and Wobble Roller Retainer Ring CE10981
  • The washer part # SW1000 is 1/8 of an inch thick. The diameter of the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981 is 3/16 inch.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Shoreline Boat Trailer Wobble Roller Recommendation
  • Looks like you have the Yates Ribbed Wobble Rollers part # YR530R-6P installed on your Shoreline boat trailer. We do not carry any pieces that are internal of the roller like a bushing if that is what you are referring to. We carry the retainer rings part # CE10981 and the wobble roller washers part # CE10983, but if you need a different part of the wobble roller replaced you will have to go ahead and replace the entire roller.

  • Recommended Tires, Brake Assemblies, And Hubs For 2004 Venture Boat Trailer
  • For your 2004 Venture Trailer, I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb Axles - 12" Diameter - 6 on 5-1/2 # AKHD-655-6-K. This comes with the bearings and seal you need. For your hydraulic brake assemblies, I recommend the Hydraulic Brake Kit - Uni-Servo - Free Backing - Dacromet - 12" - Left/Right Hand - 5.2K to 7K # AKFBBRK-7-D. For your tires and wheels, I recommend the Provider ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Silver Mod Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 -...

  • Recommended Replacement Wobble Roller Parts for Venture Boat Trailer
  • Thank you for including a photo of your Venture trailer that is missing some parts that hold its wobble roller in place. It looks like the trailer has one of the Yates non-marking rollers that are shown on the linked page. Based on your 1-1/8-inch diameter I think you have the # YR500YW-9P. We offer the matching washer # CE10982 and retainer ring # CE10981 that you can add to your cart by clicking on the provided links.

  • Replacement Wobble Rollers for Boat Trailer
  • It's sounds as if you're looking for wobble or rocker rollers. I don't have anything with the exact dimensions you mentioned, but the Yates # YR530R-8P in heavy duty rubber or the # YR500YW-8P in TPR (thermo plasticized rubber) come very close. Both rollers measure in at 5 inches in diameter and 3 inches wide. 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
    view full answer...

  • 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.

  • 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.
