  • 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

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.

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - Roller and Bunk Parts - CE10455G Review

Today, were going to review part number CE10455G. This is the C.E. Smith, deep V keel roller assembly for boat trailers. This roller assembly will support your boats keel for easy loading and safe transport on your trailer. Its twelve inch yellow thermal plastic rubber spool rollers will not mark your boat, and the galvanized steel panel bracket has slotted mounting holes for adjustability. Typically installed upright on the rear and middle cross members of a boat trailer, this keel roller panel bracket assembly will help keep the boat moving while it is being loaded and to stabilize the keel.

Has deep V keel roller supports, which will support your boats keel as it sits on the trailer. Itll help ease loading and unloading of the boat. And it helps to absorb road shock while the boats being trailered. The panel bracket lets you bolt your roller assembly on to the front of your boat trailer. It has slotted mounting holes, right here, that let you adjust the position during installation.

When you install it, it does require a half inch or seven sixteenths fasteners, which are not included. The sturdy galvanized steel bracket will resist corrosion. The galvanized steel parts are hot dipped in a zinc, after being stamped. And this will create a coating that is typically three millimeters to five millimeters thick. And this thick all around coating will allow the galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

This panel does have gussets. Theres three on each side. Three here, and three over here. And those six gussets will provide extra strength by stiffening the bends. The yellow TPR roller, which stands for Thermal Plasticized Rubber will deliver superior, long lasting performance.

The TPR material is a non-marking, and stronger than rubber and softer than polyurethane. This part is made in the U.S.A. I do want to give you a few dimensions on this. The roller length is going to be twelve inches. This does ride on a five-eighths inch shaft diameter. Now on the mounting holes, the dimensions of the slots are going to be half inch wide and five inches long. The spacing between the slots, centre to centre is going to be ten inches. And the overall size of the whole bracket is going to be twelve inches by about six and a quarter inches. And again, this part is made in the U.S.A. And that should do it for a review on part number CE10455G. End of Audio Duration: 3 minutes, 29 seconds .

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

The bracket quality was good, but unfortunately the roller material (plastic/polymer?) was very soft, so when under a load if the roller started to bind up, the keel wore a groove into the center of the roller. Once the initial "flat" developed, it only got worse over time. 404498

My boat trailer had teflon skid plates on the cross beams instead of rollers. The stern of the boat was supported with bunks. One skid plate was damaged, and cut through the gel coat of my 22 Robalo's keel. Bummer. I decided to replace with non marring rollers. I chose the C E Smith CE10453G rollers. The crew at etrailer helped me decide by emailing me information on height to center of rollers, and weight distribution on the rollers. A great experience dealing with the techs and specialists at etrailer. The rollers are very heavily galvanized and solidly built. They bolt onto the cross members of the trailer quite easily with U Bolts (not supplied). These rollers not only helped unloading of my 4000 lb boat, it has taken the risk of damaging the keel out of play. Best money I have spent in a while! I ordered them online, and they were on my porch in 4 days. Great product, fast shipping, and great customer service !!!!! 371622

I've always had a problem loading my boat onto the (bunk) trailer and lining it up straight. Hopefully after installing this keel roller assembly my problem will be alleviated. Robust product, built very strong. Delivery was on time. As you can see by the photos, I needed to move the light bar from the cross member onto the roller assembly. 158806

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


  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
