Bolster brackets are typically mounted upright on a boat trailer's crossmembers. When used with a swivel bracket (sold separately), they allow a mounted bunk board, which is run from the front of the trailer to the back, to pivot while you are loading a boat. On kayak trailers, these brackets are mounted to the trailer's frame and support bunk boards that run across the trailer.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being 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.

I ordered Bolster Bracket (EC10100G) with Swivel Bracket (CE10201G). These 2 items work great together and are good quality and made of heavy metal. The trick to mounting the 2x4 boards: 1 mount the Bolster Brackets Loose as close to the height you need, 2 mount the Swivel Bracket loose so it can lay sideways then you can mount the 2x4 easily, then tighten the Swivel Brackets to the angle that is need for your boat.

This bolster bracket did the job well on my trailer

- CE10100G

I purchased a spare tire carrier/bracket this past Spring and although it arrived promptly, I delayed mounting it on the boat trailer because the boat had already been put in the water for the summer sailing season. I couldn't position the bracket on the trailer properly until the boat was taken out of the water for the season and put on the trailer. With the hull in place, I could now position the spare tire bracket so the tire cleared all the trailer structure and the boat itself. For this reason, I took awhile to provide this review since the bracket only sat in it's shipping box for the summer season. The bracket itself is well made, but would have been nicer if it came galvanized, or at least painted. Before installation, I took the time to prime and paint it to match the white color of the trailer and prevent surface rust. It was easy to mount and securely held the spare tire in place. I was able to find a mounting position far enough aft on the trailer so as not to increase tongue weight substantially. I would say this is a fair bracket for the price. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for it to be either galvanized, painted, or both.

Well I can't believe it's really been a year since I purchased all the parts from Etrailer to rebuild my jon boat trailer. I bought this tilt trailer on craigslist and well let's just say needed some MAJOR TLC. From the roller brackets, fenders, tires/wheels, hitch coupler, winch, etc.. All the parts have held up extremely well and I am VERY happy with not only the quality of the parts but the customer service as well. This is my "GOTO" place to buy parts for all 3 of my trailers!!

- CE10100G

Quality material, and quick arrival from order date. Customer service quite helpful. If you want quality, and savings this is the place. Only down is could not obtain answer on load capacity on bolster brackets, but seems to be same industry wide. Would be great to know this for both 7 & 11 gauge.

- CE10100G

The brackets on my trailer were too long and scraped on the ramp. Rather than cut them I thought it would be easier to replace with shorter brackets. The price of your product made this decision a no brainer.

- CE10100G

received shipment earlier than expected. Product was just as described. Used to replace the bolster brackets on my boat trailer which salt water had corroded over time. I would recommend etrailer to others.

- CE10100G

Patrick, my transaction with etrailer was outstanding. The delivery was fast, the order was exactly as stated and the attention given by your personnel great. I wish all online orders were efficient as etrailer"s.

  • What Hardware is Required for Assembly of the CE Smith Swivel and Bolster Bracket
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket, # CE10100G and # CE10201G, do not use bolts with partial thread to allow the swivel bracket to move. Once you have the swivel bracket at the angle you need, you simply tighten the bolt down to hold the swivel bracket in place. The swivel mounting hole on the swivel and bolster bracket will require a 1/2 inch bolt and the flange mounting holes that are used to secure the bunk board to the swivel bracket are 3/8 inch in diameter. You could simply...

  • Availability of Stainless Steel and Aluminum Boat Trailer Bunk and Guide-On Brackets
    The bunk and roller bracket replacement parts we offer for boat trailers are generally going to be pre-galvanized steel, often 16-gauge or heavier as in the case of many of the parts shown on the included links. For example, CE Smith bolster bracket # CE10100G is an 8-inch bracket made of 11-gauge galvanized steel. We do not carry stainless steel or aluminum brackets.

  • Replacement Pontoon Trailer Bunk Brackets to Provide Increased Clearance Between Boat and Ground
    Since your clearance issue is not so much with your trailer as with your pontoon boat's skegs, the better solution is to install taller bunk brackets to lift the height of the boat on the trailer, rather than lifting the trailer higher off the ground. Keep in mind that a tire would have to be 3-inches taller overall to give you 1-1/2-inches more height. A tire that much larger would probably create a new problem with fender or wheel well clearance. The linked page displays all bunk brackets...
