Bolster-and-swivel-bracket assemblies are typically mounted upright on a boat trailer's crossmembers. They allow a mounted bunk board, which runs from the front of the trailer to the back, to tilt to accommodate and support boat hulls of different sizes. On kayak trailers, these brackets are mounted to the trailer's frame and support bunk boards that run across the trailer.


Galvanized Steel

Steel parts are galvanized by being hot-dipped in zinc after they have been stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

Video Transcript for Review of CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - Roller and Bunk Parts - CE10002G-4

Today, we're going to take a look at the C. E. Smith 13 inch long galvanized steel bolster and swivel bracket assemblies for a quantity of four. These bolster and swivel bracket assemblies let you install two bunk boards on your boat trailer. The bolster bracket and the swivel bracket are all typically mounted upright on your boat's trailer's crossmembers, and they allow a mounted bunk board, which runs from the front of the trailer to the back, to tilt to accommodate and support boat hulls of different sizes. The swivel brackets'll let you tilt the bunk board, and it helps you fit the boat hull snugly onto the trailer during your loading process.You can see the bolt and the lock nut is all included for attaching the swivel bracket to the bolster bracket.

The swivel bracket in here is what'll bolt to your bunk board, and the bolster bracket attaches to your trailer frame crossmembers. The mounting slots right here on the bolster bracket permit as much as a three and three quarter inch height adjustment during installation. The bracket installs vertically on your boat trailer's frame with a u-bolt, so when you go to install this, the u-bolt'll go through here, and then it can range . In other words, you could move a height adjustment anywhere .. Three and three quarter inches of height adjustment.You can see on this side, they have these dimpled surface on the bolster bracket.

That's to help prevent the bracket from sliding along the trailer frame. So, when you put your u-bolt through there and tighten it down, those dimples will go up against the trailer frame and keep it from moving. These are 11 gauge galvanized steel. Helps resist rust and corrosion. They are suitable for saltwater exposure.This part is for quantity for a quantity of four bracket assemblies.

We had mentioned the overall height. If we put a ruler on that, you're going to be right at about 13 inches. The dimension of just the bolster bracket itself, height on that is going to be right at 12 inches tall. The width on it is right at two and a half inches wide. The mounting slots right in here, the width on those are right at a half an inch, and the length on both of them ...

If we can get a good measurement here. Is going to be right at four and three quarter inches long.The swivel bracket, which is the part right up here at the top, measurement on that. Width of it is right at three and a half inches by one and three-eighths inches. The overall height, which is from the bottom here to the top, is going to be right at two inches tall. The mounting holes on the top of the swivel bracket, they are three-eighths inch diameter, and the spacing between them, center to center, is two and a half inches.That should do it for the review on the C. E. Smith 13 inch long galvanized steel bolster and swivel bracket assemblies for a quantity of four.

Saviors are the folks at etailer.com. Converting rollers to bunks was simple. Rook off all the rollers, measured up the trailer and boat, went to etrailer to shop for ALL the parts to make the conversion. Placed order, for all my needs, got over the $99 shipping hurdle and three days later, got to working on the actual conversion. Within a few hours, my EZ-Loader that my Whaler sits on, was now on brand new bunks, resting comfortably. 414581

I so wish I had discovered etrailer earlier! The same product was $30 more expensive at other places and shipping was very prompt! Additionally, Heidi M. was an absolute joy to work with! She was friendly and truly interested in helping me find what I needed. She is definitely my go-to person whenever I need trailer parts from now on! Thanks, Heidi!! :) 495193

Converted a late 80's EZ-Loader roller to a bunk construction for my Boston Whaler 18 Outrage. Great product and easy to use. Quality construction and perfect fit. Purchase the recommended extra washers for the U bolts, worth it. 123400

Haven't actually tried the bunks and guide boards I bought because it is winter here now but the service and selection were awesome. They had everything I was looking for in one place and the delivery was right on time. The instruction videos and pictures were very helpful. Highly recommend etrailer for all your trailering needs and more. 589493

The only thing I would change would be the slots. They need to be a full 4" so a 4"u bolt can fit through it. Otherwise great on time shipping 583407

These brackets replaced the old rusty bunk brackets on my salt water trailer. Measure the height of the bunks on your trailer now and order ones that will be tall enough. They are adjustable by the slots you can see in the bracket. VERY EASY to install with the U bolts. The tops swivel easily so you can tilt the bunks the way they need to be to fit your boat properly.I have never worked on a trailer before, this was a first and it was easy. Check out the videos and photos provided. OUTSTANDING COMPANY with outstanding products. 294596

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts
Do you have a question about this Boat Trailer Part?


  • How Many Bolster And Swivel Brackets Are Needed For A Boat Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, like part # CE10000G, do not bear the weight of the boat. The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat. There should be a bracket attached to each cross member of the trailer frame. If you are buying several brackets, I would recommend part # CE10000G-4. This is a set of 4 of the 9 inch adjustable brackets. If you need longer adjustable...

  • Determining Length of Bolster Bracket for New Bunk System on Boat Trailer
  • To be on the safe size, I recommend going with a 13 inch bracket # CE10002G-4 at the back of the trailer and an 11 inch bracket with # CE10003G at the front. A nice feature on these brackets is that they will each actually have as much as 3-3/4 inches of height adjustment due to their mounting slots, so even if its total height is a bit higher than needed, you can adjust them down. This will allow you to have the perfect height for your new bunk support system. I have attached a short...

These brackets are held to your trailer with u-bolts like the CE Smith U-Bolts - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16" Wide x 1/2" Diameter - Qty 4 # CE15283GA-4.

  • Tallest Bunk Bolster Brackets to Clear Trailer Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • Your best option is going to be bolster bracket set # CE10196G-4 which is a quantity of 4 so if you wanted 6 you would need 2 sets and you would have a couple of spares should they be needed. These are 16-1/4 inches long with some adjustability due to the slotted holes. For u-bolts use # CE15283GA-8 (which is a set of 8 because each needs 2 u-bolts).

  • Bolster Brackets and Swivel Assemblies for SeaDoo Trailer
  • I can help you find the correct bolster and swivel brackets for your Seadoo trailer. The CE Smith part # CE10002G is a galvanized 13 inch bolster with a swivel bracket assembly. The swivel bracket will fit your 2 x 4 bunk great, but the brackets included have a 2-1/2 inch center spacing. We do offer a swivel bracket with a 2 inch center spacing # CE10206AA, but with either I would recommend drilling a hole in the bracket where you need it. It's important to keep in mind that its...

  • Appropriate Replacement Bolster Brackets for Trailer Carrying 3000-lb Boat/Motor
  • We offer bolster brackets both singly and in sets of four and in a range of sizes and types for both bunks and rollers. The link provided will let you see all available parts. You can use the filters at the left-hand side of the page to select parts by type and size. Extra capacity in any system is never a bad idea but these components are not weight-rated so as long as you find a suitable size and type you should be fine.

  • What is the Difference Between a Bolster Bracket and a Bunk Bracket
  • The terms bolster bracket and bunk bracket refer to the same thing. For example, CE Smith part # CE10002G-4 is a bracket that can be used on a boat trailer to mount either a standard carpeted wooden bunk board (that supports the boat's hull) or a roller bunk like # DL21741.

  • Bolster Brackets for Bunks on a Boat Trailer
  • Considering that there will be a bunk of some kind mounting on top of the brackets once installed the 11 inch overall height of the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets # CE10001G-4 should work just fine for you. If you determine the 11 inches is not enough we do have a set of four 13 inch brackets, # CE10002G-4. The slotted holes on these brackets will allow for some adjustability.

  • Parts to Convert Roller Bunks to Bunk Boards on Boat Trailer
  • It sounds like you are just wanting to switch to carpeted bunk boards. For that you can use the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers, which come in a number of different lengths: 5 feet long # CE27820, 6 feet long # CE27840 or 7 feet long # CE27845. To install these you can mount them to brackets that are already on your trailer or use CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies; you would need two of these per bunk board. The assemblies are available in different lengths...

  • Brackets for Adding Additional Bunk Boards to Magic Tilt Galvanized Kayak Trailer
  • The problem is that your bunks need to face a different direction than what standard boat trailers have so it's hard to have a solution since your setup is unique. That said I don't see why you couldn't use CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10002G-4 attached to the rails front to back on your trailer so that could could mount the bunks. For a U-bolt kit you could then use the part # CE15283GA-4 to secure the brackets.

  • Does the CE Smith Swivel Bracket Come with a Bolster Bracket
  • The swivel bracket # CE10200G is just the L-shaped bracket. it can attach to a bolster bracket.

  • Will Galvanized Steel Bolster Brackets # CE10192GA-4 from CE Smith Hold Up in Salt Water Conditions
  • All of the boat trailer bolster brackets that we offer, such as # CE10002G-4 and the set you referenced # CE10192GA-4, are made of galvanized steel. This zinc coating helps resists salt water corrosion in such environments. These brackets do not carry a specific salt-spray rating but they can be kept in best shape with a regular fresh-water rinse (as will your boat, of course) to remove the salt and help reduce corrosive effects.

  • Roller bunk brackets like the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets # CE10002G-4 do not have listed capacities. I spoke to my contact at CE Smith and he informed that that as long as you are under the capacity for your trailer and the roller bunks that are being attached to the brackets the brackets will be fine. For your 2,000 lb boat the # CE10002G-4 would easily have the needed capacity.

  • Bunk Boards or Roller Bunks and Brackets for Boat Trailer and 26 Cuddy Cabin Boat
  • I don't believe there is a style of trailer called a low-tide trailer. Most of what you find on an internet search of that term is a broken boat trailer, so the gentleman may have been telling him his trailer was broken or soon to be broken. I've never seen bunk boards resting directly on the frame, so I recommend getting some bunk brackets.
