  • Keel Roller Assembly
  • 12 Inch Long
  • CE Smith
  • Thermoplastic - Non-Marking

This roller assembly supports your boat's keel for easy loading and safe transport on your trailer. Its 12-inch, yellow TPR spool roller will not mark your boat, and the galvanized steel panel bracket has slotted mounting holes for adjustability.


Features:

  • Deep V keel roller supports your boat's keel as it sits on the trailer
    • Eases loading and unloading of boat
    • Helps to absorb road shock while boat is being trailered
  • Panel bracket lets you bolt roller assembly onto the front of your boat trailer
    • Has slotted mounting holes that allow you to adjust the position during installation
    • Requires 1/2" or 7/16" fasteners (not included)
  • Sturdy, galvanized steel bracket resists corrosion
    • 6 Gussets provide extra strength by stiffening the bends
  • Yellow, thermal-plasticized rubber (TPR) roller delivers superior long-lasting performance
    • TPR material is non-marking, stronger than rubber and softer than polyurethane
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Roller length: 12"
  • Shaft diameter: 5/8"
  • Dimensions of mounting slots (each): 1/2" wide x 5" tall
  • Spacing of mounting slots: 10" apart on center


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 received my C.E. Smith keel roller and guide-on roller supports in Zap Mail. I wasn't sure about how the guide-ons would work out as I suspected they might tend to move when force of the boat pushed against them. And I didn't like the look of the excess tubing extendinging into the trailer. As it turns out the extra tubing length goes beneath the bunk boards. There was just enough space for me to add a wedge made out of dense plastic block on top of the tubing and under the bunk board. This made the whole guide-on very strong and sturdy. Similarly I wanted to get my front roller as far forward as possible. To do this I put it on seemingly backwards but added 1" spacers I fabricated using aluminum tubing between the bracket and cross beam of the trailer. All-in-all I am very happy with the upgrades to my trailer. They should make using it much easier especially on steep grades and with cross-winds. Excellent quality on all of the CE Smith components. 762797

End compression caps continued to fail. Finally had to install cotter pins to prevent roller from falling off. A friend had the same problem with this product. 726400

About a year ago I ordered trailer fenders, lights, and rollers. All products preform well, and as usual etrailer provides awesome customer service. Their website provide more product information than any other company I have seen on the web. Plus it is always easy to contact them for additional information. 725688

I gave it 4 stars because it appears to be very well built and although I installed it last year I still haven’t actually tried it out. I installed it on my boat trailer to hopefully cure a loading problem, but have not launched the boat yet. Because of that I withheld the 5th star pending testing. However, the service was great and the equipment appears to be top quality. I would not hesitate to order again. 674266

I had 5" rollers before and kept missing them and banging up the bottom of my boat and scratching it because I was hitting the metal on the sides of the rollers. I have three rollers past the rear bunks that hold the boat. Adding these larger/wider rollers that don't have any sharp points at the ends on the metal has now saved the bottom of my boat. I also added some boat guides that help a ton. No more diggers on the boat bottom for me! 653269

I have not yet installed these rollers on my trailer, but my first impression out of the box is that this product is well made and very sturdy. They are a great improvement over the original rollers that came with the trailer. 508124


Comments
Worked great when it wasnt broken. The compression caps that hold the roller shaft in place failed on each of the two rollers that I purchased. The same casualty occurred on a friends trailer. The manufacturer did send me replacement rollers, but I did not have confidence that they would remain intact. So far best solution is to drill and use cotter pins to keep from losing the roller.

This was the perfect solution to the loading problem we were having with our boat. The boat keel was riding on the rear cross member of our trailer, making it difficult to properly center the boat on the trailer. Installing this roller on the cross member accurately centered the boat. It now loads perfectly every time. 500534

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • How To Install Rollers On a Pontoon Boat
    It sounds like you are trying to bring the boat down closer to the trailer frame. I have personally not seen many setups that involve using keel rollers like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10455G with a pontoon boat but if you have an idea in mind we do have these in various sizes. That said, I think the best option we can offer you to add a roller would be with the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks part # DL21741 and the CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Pontoon...

  • Hardware Requirements to Install CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly CE10455G
    The specific hardware to best install the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly # CE10455G really depends on the desired mounting point on a particular trailer. U-bolts like # CE15283GA-2 are often a good option but other galvanized hardware you source locally may be better in some cases. Generally one pair of u-bolts would be sufficient for each roller in most typical installations.

  • Height of Keel Roller Assembly
    I believe you are just asking for the height of the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers # CE10455G, and as you can see by the accompanying photo it is approximately 4 inches so you may be able to use it if that's the approximate height you are looking for. I have added a link to a video review of this assembly for you to check out as well.

  • Will CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller # CE10455G Prevent Front of Boat From Hitting Crossbeam on Trailer
    Yes, the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller, # CE10455G, can be used on your trailer to prevent the front of the keel on your boat from hitting the cross beam. This roller will not only support your boat keel but will also help ease loading and unloading of the boat as well as absorb road shock while the boat is being trailered.

  • How High Should the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly # CE10455G be Installed
    It really just depends on your boat trailer setup. If you are using bunk boards as well then you would need the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly # CE10455G to sit at a spot where it is sharing the load of the boat. If you will only be using the keel roller then I would place it just above the trailer as you can see a different customer did in the attached picture.

  • Can the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly Part # CE10455G Support a 9,000 Lb Boat
    The CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10455G will do an excellent job of helping to guide the boat out of the water and position it onto the boat trailer all while reducing the stress on your winch. However, using just one of the rollers would not offer enough support for your 28' long 9,000 lb boat. In order to support the weight of the boat you will want to use several of the rollers positioned them just slightly above the frame rail so they are not taking responsibility for...

  • Bow Roller Solution for Jon Boat that Has Flatter and Wider Bow
    Based on what you described you might be best served with a keel roller assembly like the # CE10455G which is 12 inches long and has a pretty low angle to the roller which sounds like would be a great match for the contour of the bottom of your boat.

  • 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 11-3/8 Inch Long Keel Roller for a Boat Trailer
    With 12 inch keel rollers, such as # YR12244-125EC for example, they aren't actually 12 inches long. They fit 12 inch wide brackets. Just the rubber part of this roller for example is approximately 11-3/8 inches. Overall it is 11-3/4 inches long. So it is kind of like a 2 x 4 which is neither 2 inches nor 4 inches. The other option is to replace the roller and mounting bracket together using an assembly such as # CE10455G. I have linked videos of both of these parts for you.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Keel Roller and Bracket for 1996 Calkins Boat Trailer
    The linked page will show you all replacement keel rollers which are offered in both black rubber and non-marking thermoplastic varieties. You can use the filters on the page to narrow the results based on your preferred type and roller length, which ranges from 5- to 18-inches. The internal shaft diameter of all rollers we offer is either 5/8-inch or 1/2-inch so you'll want to check your existing bracket if it will be re-used. We also offer complete roller-with-bracket assemblies, shown...
