Video of Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube
Videos are provided As a guide only. Refer To manufacturer
installation instructions And specs For complete information.
Today, we're going to show you a replacement tang type spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101. This is our tang washer, right here. You can see it's flat. It's got thickness of a 1/32 of an inch and here's our 2 tabs right here, for tangs. What happens is, when you install this, you bend 1 of these tangs up into a slot for your casting nuts, that's what holds your cast nut in place and keeps it from backing off.
It's pretty simple to install, let's go ahead and do it right now. A couple stipulations . Your spindle will have to be a D type spindle, also this is only going to work with a 1 inch spindle. To install it, the flat spot on the spindle, goes where the tangs are, you slide it in place. I'll install the casting nut and we'll go ahead and tighten it down. We'll run our casting nut on until it stops, then you can back it off just a little bit. Then we'll select 1 of the tangs to bend down. We'll use a flatblade screwdriver to bend down the tab over the tangs that fits in the notch, here, on the casting nut.
Get it started, then push down on it and you see, our casting nut is locked into place. It still has movement, like it should, and you're good to go. And that will finish it for the tang type replacement spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101.

Perfect fit. My trailer was borrowed and came back with a replaced hub - while servicing the hubs I noticed that the replaced hub did not have one of these installed. Scary. Ordered one from Etrailer and had it a few days later, shipping was cheaper than running all over town trying to run this part down. 115902

Please see the attached picture of the broken parts I found when inspecting the wheel bearing on my boat trailer. I was unaware of the tang wheel bearing washer assembly until I visited your website and watched the installation video. I had never seen any other method than the cotter pin assembly to retain the bearing on the axle. I was glad to see the the actual way the washer was manufactured. It didn't seem right that the small tab alone cold retain the bearing. Thank you for the video and the prompt delivery of the needed parts. 10524

I threw the old washers out by mistake when I was putting new hubs on. Found these quickly on the website and received them promptly. They fit exactly as they should. 203934

Not easy to find these so I ordered extra and the price isn't bad either. 145009

Fit just as described. I have always had great success dealing with etrailer.com! 214504
First time I have seen this Tang Lock Washer used in a wheel bearing nut. This lock washer is thin and will get damaged if you are not careful in removing or installing the bearing nut. the other types of lock washers are better and less likely to get damaged. However it your trailer bearing nut uses this type of washer you must use this type. Few trailer parts stores have this tang washer in stock, so you have to order it. Deliver of my order was quick and the product was what I needed and expected. I ordered an extra pair to keep on hand for future use. 368695

Absolutely phenomenal customer service! Made my order, but realized I needed 2 seals.. sent them an email to change my order, and recieved a phone call and they fixed it for me. FAST SHIPPING! and GREAT packing. I ordered 2 bearing/seal sets, 2 seals, 2 spindle washers, and 2 axle nuts and package came with a box with paper padding, then 3 separate padded envelopes with my orders... Couldn't find a place with better prices... I will be an etrailer.com customer for life. 156988
When repacking the bearings on my trailer, the lock rings were damaged. Unable to find them locally, I checked etrailer and there they were! I submitted my order, which was received in record time, and with the correct item. I do a fair amount of ordering online, and etrailer sets the standard in my opinion. Communication and follow-up from etrailer is excellent. Have recommended etrailer to my friends, and will continue to do so. A+++++!!!!! 305749
This was the perfect part that I needed to fix my trailer. I looked everywhere in town and no one had this product in stock and I was told that it was impossible to find. I found it quickly after a friend did some research on the internet. The product was received in a very timely manner and it was just as described. Great purchase from a top-notch seller! 257218

Service is great! I just ordered wheel bearings, races and the above item. It wasn't until I received the items that I noticed M.I.C. My fault, just did not see it when placing the order. I wish it were made more clear and MADE IN USA items were offered! The help on the phone was also great, thanks for all the help and good attitude. GO WITH USA. 127485
I received the package exactly on schedule and was exactly what I wanted. I wasn't sure about shipping "sure post" (ships UPS to the nearest postoffice, then postal service delivers) but it worked out ok. It adds a couple of days compared to shipping entirely with UPS but if you are not in a hurry it's less expensive. . 64960
Got what I ordered fast. Etrailer seems a good place to buy. Had a prob on earlier order and they fixed the prob fast. I appreciate them and will use them again. When I called I talked to real person that used English. I will stand behind them at this point. Good job in this day and age. 371297

Products received as advertised. Great price. I first ordered the seals and forgot to add the Tang washers. Called customer service and Hally C was very helpful, cancelling the original order and making a new order with the Tang washers so that I didn't have to pay for shipping 2X. 234115

Not a highly sophisticated product I needed - spindle washers - but in this hick town of Duluth, MN they were impossible to locate. Etrailer's service was exceptional and the next time I need a more substantial item, this is the place I will go. Thank you. 18895
This was my first purchase from etrailer.com. The web site was easy to use and low shipping cost sealed the deal. This was a small order but was handled quickly. When I need more things, and every trailer owner will, I sure look at etrailer's web site again 230687

These tanged washer were replacements for my camper trailer hubs. I wanted to place new tang washers on my spindles because the old ones had be removed and reinstalled several times. Didn't want to take a chance of tab breaking off on the road. 290837

Even though it was a very small order etrailer.com put just as much time and effort into it as if it were hundreds of dollars. Without these washers the trailer is useless. Very pleased with service and product. 136458

The product I ordered is a keeper for wheel bearings as they seem to wear out and tighten up the bearing so with some on hand I should be able to keep going Thanks Jim 317201
