Measurement of Deep V Keel Roller Assembly

Typically installed upright on the rear and middle crossmembers of a boat trailer, keel roller panel bracket assemblies help to keep the boat moving while it is being loaded and to stabilize the keel.


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’ve now had to order 2 replacements as the metal shears off after about a year.



by:

Great selection of trailer parts.



by: 04/12/2024

Came on time and worked as expected. Very pleased like I have been with all my purchases from you.



by:

The boat roller is exactly what I wanted. I will order from etrailer again, soon, thanks ever so much for your service



by:

The rollers are great. My problem was the boat was on the trailer when I installed the rollers.



by:

Great and kind service



by:

Excellent quality



by:

Well built



by:

The lights are great. They fit my trailer very well and I like that they are submersiable. All the trailer parts repaired my small trailer back to new and they function very well.



by:

Part arrived earlier than expected. Looks like it will serve my fix with my boat trailer. Very nice service with etrailer. My go to for all my trailer needs.



by:

I put these on my trailer and they centered the boat nicely. Slots are 6 in. apart and can take up to 1/2 in screws. The shipping was very fast and always has been with etrailer.com.

Holding up very well. Used in salt water at South Padre Island. Great product!



by:

etrailer delivers great products with great customer service.Delivery was quick if trailer parts are needed etrailer will deliver.



by:

Yes I received my order from e trailer. It was well packaged and was a prompt delivery. I mounted my new boat trailer roller on my trailer and what a difference. Now I can crank my boat up on the trailer without even touching the boat. Once the boat makes contact with the roller mounted in center rear most cross bar the boat begins rising up until its high enough to slide onto the bunks and up to the winch. It centers it's self every time and sure makes life easier. Now I can go fishing and handle loading and unloading the boat without help. I will be doing a lot more fishing from now on. Thanks for offering such excellent products on line and shipping to my front door.



by:

I added 3 sets of these to my trailer to keep my keep keel from making any contact with my transverse beams on my trailer. After a year they're still doing the job and look brand new. I fresh water rinse them thoroughly at the end of the day and they've required no other maintenance. Don't forget to buy a high quality set of non ferrous hardware with nylocks to secure them. Happy customer right here.



by:

The website is very helpful and well thought out. I liked the video descriptions of your products - especially the measurements which was very helpful in ordering the correct size. The V Keel Roller Assembly that I purchased is extremely sturdy and worth the price. My plans for using it are a bit unconventional - I am attaching it to the rear of my car Kayak rack to facilitate rolling my Kayak onto the carrier by myself. Buying the parts I needed from the rack company would have been four times what I paid for the Roller Assembly from etrailer.com.



by:

I installed this roller atop a 1x6 plank across the forward part of my trailer to provide more support to the bow of my 20' sailboat. The arrangement turned out better than expected as the boat now rolls easily on and off the trailer with no more heavy lifting for me.



by:

Great roller, just what I needed to get my trailer back in shape.



by:

I have modified my 12x6.5 trailer to haul my catamaran. These rollers allow me to safely and easily load my Cat and secure it in place. Easy rolling and no wear on the hulls. Highly recommend these roolers for boat trailers.



by:

Fit perfectly, came on time, woman Love it. Better that eHarmony! Nothing sexier than a cool trailer roller!



by:

Very sturdy and well built. I replaced the skinny keel skid on my Shorelandr trailer with this 8 inch roller. I also added roll on guides to help center the boat.



by:

Products were exactly as described. Shipping was next day. Couldn't ask for better service. Needed one Deep V Keel Roller to determine if it would work as a replacement for a completely different style roller. Having determined it will work, I have now placed an order for a second one.

Definitely would recommend etrailer to others.



by:

Looks like it will work, but differently than I hoped for. One thing I wished I knew was the dimension from the bottom of the plate to the top of the roller, while the plate was laid flat with roller up. I wanted to mount it this way, but it was 1/2 inch too high for me to mount it that way. I had to mount it vertically on the trailer to make it work. Adding this dimension to the product might help someone else out in the future.



by:

Mark, at etrailer, was very helpful when I needed to change my order. The product shipped exactly when he said it would. When the roller arrived it looked just as it was pictured on-line . . . heavy duty.



by:

Well built, quality. I would highly recommend etrailer.

  • 8 inch Keel Roller and Bracket Recommendation
    Sounds like you are looking for the part # CE10403G. The slotted mounting holes would allow it to be mounted at various heights to match what your trailer needs. The slots of the bracket are 6 inches apart as well. I attached a review video for the roller for you to check out as well.

  • What Do Keel Rollers Fit Onto on Boat Trailer
    Keel rollers like the part # CE10403G that you referenced fit on a shaft that has pal nuts on either end of it. The part # CE10705A is an example of a shaft with the pal nuts. This is a shaft that is 12-3/4 inches long and 1/2 inch in diameter. Pal nuts basically are a friction fit that get tapped onto the end of the shaft.

  • Replacement Roller Assembly for Deep-V Style Boat Trailer
    If you just want to replace the roller assembly you have now then the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10401G is what I recommend. However, if you are having trouble aligning with the roller then you might want to consider a larger roller assembly like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10403G which is 8" wide. These options will both work great with your deep v style hull. In order to attach either option you can reuse the mounting hardware that you have now.

  • Recommended Keel Roller For Best Weight Capacity on Boat Trailer
    The Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - Super-Heavy-Duty Rubber - 18" Long - 5/8" Shaft # YR18244-165EC is not weight rated. The weight of the boat will actually be on the bracket and the 5/8 inch shaft that runs through the heavy-duty roller. Your application with the front weight the roller is more likely to bend the longer you make the roller. For instance the 18 inch roller along with the brackets # CE10500G and Roller Shaft w/Cap Nuts 19" x 5/8" # 107-30A will be more likely...

  • Replacement Keel Roller for my Calkins Boat Trailer
    I have a couple of solutions but the sizes aren't exactly what you're after. I instead recommend using the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers part # CE10405G to replace the 11.5" roller you currently have. This will allow for adjusting it to match your boats hull. Use CE Smith U-Bolts part # CE15283GA-2 if your hardware is missing or damaged. For the 7.5" use the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers part # CE10403G with the same hardware as mentioned...

  • Option to Replace 7-1/2 Inch Keel Roller
    The actual roller itself is not 8 inches, so even though that's in the product title, it's generally a bit shorter overall. And while we don't offer any with a 3/4" diameter shaft, you may be able to use an entire assembly: - CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel/Black Rubber # CE10403G I have added a diagram for you showing the dimensions of the # CE10403G, so you can see the actual size of the roller.

  • Keel Roller Assembly Similar to a Roller Bunk
    Though we have roller bunks like # DL21741 and a Deep V Keel Roller Assemblies such as the 8" # CE10403G and 12" # CE10455G, we do not carry what would amount to a combination of the two. We also carry Keel Roller Assemblies that attach to either 2" trailer tongues # CE32005G or 3" trailer tongues # CE32003G. I've attached links to video reviews of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Boat Trailer Roller Brackets and Pal Nuts
    Most boat trailer bow and keel rollers do use pal nuts like # CE10801 to secure the rubber roller to the support shaft and mounting bracket. From your photo I cannot tell quite what type of set-up you have. Since most of our rollers use galvanized mounts like # CE10403G and the others shown on the other linked page it may be easier and safer to install a new roller bracket.

  • Keel Roller for 1975 Wellcraft V20 Boat Trailer
    For the crossmembers the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10403G would work really well. It's pretty common to use one of these on each crossmember so it would work pretty well. Then for U-bolts you'd want the part # CE15283GA-4.

  • Can CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Carry Weight of Heavier Boat
    The rubber keel roller # CE10403G does not have a weight capacity though it is designed to support the added weight of heavier boats. At any given time, it is not likely that any one roller will have to support the entire weight of the boat so it is not really a concern. If you are having an issue with these rollers breaking it could be possible that your bunks aren't supporting enough of the boat's weight.

  • Diameter Of Keel Roller Included In CE Smith Keel Roller Assembly CE10403G
    I had our warehouse measure the diameter of the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers - Galvanized Steel/Black Rubber - 8" # CE10403G and found it is 3-1/4" at the widest point, 2-3/8" right before the center flat area, and 2-1/4" in the center flat area as shown in the included diagram. I also included a video of the # CE10403G for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of 7-1/2-inch-long V-Shaped Replacement Keel Roller for Boat Trailer
    My contact at Yates Rubber advises that a nominal 8-inch keel roller does not measure exactly 8 inches; typically they are slightly smaller than the specified size, much the way a piece of 2 x 4 lumber is not exactly 2-inches by 4-inches. I took measurements of several replacement rollers and confirmed that the 8-inch size generally measures 7-5/16 (just the roller itself) and 7-3/4 inches including the nylon bushings on each end. For example, the Dutton-Lainson # DL21712 is a nominal...

  • Replacement Surge Actuator, Brake Line, V Roller, and Roller Bunks for 85 Magic Tilt Trailer
    Hey Mike, so lets start first with an actuator to replace your coupler. For that the Demco part # DM72VR would be a great option that has as easy to use latch and was designed for drum brakes and a 2 inch hitch ball. It sounds like the brake line was cut right at the back of the actuator so for a replacement for that you'd want the part # DM02032. If you needed a complete replacement brake line kit we have the part # 18SI-BLKIT that you referenced. To do new wheel cylinders on the brake...

  • Would Dutton-Lainson DL21741 Roller Bunks Contact Keel of Boat
    The # DL21741 Deluxe Roller Bunk would bolt to the bunk boards, which are designed to support the sides of the boat, not the keel. Therefore, the aft portion of the bunk rollers wouldn't contact the boat's keel. A series of keel rollers like # CE10403G would be used to support the keel.

  • Does CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller CE10403G Have a Weight Capacity
    The rubber keel roller # CE10403G does not have a weight capacity though it is designed to support the added weight of heavier boats. At any given time, it is not likely that any one roller will have to support the entire weight of the boat so it is not really a concern. If you are replacing a roller then the key is to get one that is the same size as the previous roller.
