Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts Review

Hi there boat trailer owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at CE Smith's replacement keel roller rods. And this is what our replacement roller rod's going to look like. These are available in either two different diameters, whether it be five eighths, like we have here or half inch, you just want to match it up to your old one. And they're also available in varying lengths. So that way you can get the proper span for your particular trailer.

And all of them are zinc coated to protect them from rusting corrosion, which is very common on your boat trailers since you're pulling it in and out of the boat dock all the time, you're next to the Lake. They often get wet. So this way we can ensure that we're going to have long lasting operation of this rod, and it's not going to seize up inside of here due to rust and corrosion.Also included with it you'll receive cap nuts for each side of your rod. And these are nice because once you press them on there, they're pretty much a permanent fit, you have to really try to get them off of there. And since this is a roller, it doesn't ever really get forces side to side, but we don't want to use regular thread on nuts on something like this since it does roll.

That could potentially cause the nuts to back off. So this is an ideal solution. If your old keel roller or keel roller rod are worn out and need replacement, the replacement shaft here is going to be a great option for you because it's kind of a one use thing, unless you can get yourself some new cap nuts. And even if you do get new cabinets, if it's heavily corroded and worn down, those cap nuts may not fit as tight and as properly as they used to.So when replacing your keel roller, when it's wore out, I highly recommend also replacing the keel roller rod. The rod is going to be made of solid steel with a zinc coating.

So it's going to be extremely durable holding up the weight that is pressed down from the boat sitting on it there. And the zinc coat is going to protect it against rust and corrosion. If your keel roller is worn out. And that's why you're looking at getting replacements. We also carry the keel rollers here at

So you can get a set up just like this. You can see how nice and smooth it is, and we've got a nice surface for our boat to rest on.Today we're going to be replacing the keel roller's shaft because our key roller's all damaged up and in order to get the roller off, we have to take the shaft out and the nuts typically get damaged and are not reusable. So we're just going to be replacing it all as an assembly. Start by removing our roller's nuts. We're just going to get behind it with a pair of pliers. We're just going to pop that cap off of there. inaudible 00:02:18. Our shaft will then slide out. We can remove our roller and then install our new components. We've got our shaft here and I find it easier to get one cap nut on first. So we're just going to set that on top and we're just going to hammer it into place. I'm going to use a rubber mallet just to help minimize how much dings I make on the little cap. And it's really that simple. And you can see here, there's no way I'm going to push this off. If I wanted to get this off of here, I would almost have to take another hammer and smash it off of there because you're just not going to be able to pull it off. Now we can just take our roller. We're going to set it into place. Slide our rod all the way through the roller, until it comes out on the other side. We'll then take our cap, we're going to set it into place. Now that we got it just barely started. We're going to finish tapping it on. I'm going to use a hammer on the other side, because it might hurt your hip or something else if you're holding it. And we can see our shaft spins, our roller spins and it's nice and solid, it's not going anywhere. Thought you need a hatchet. And that completes our look at CE Smith's replacement keel roller rods.

Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers - Zinc-Plated Steel - 5-1/4" x 1/2" - CE10700A

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (539 Customer Reviews)

5-1/4" Long x 1/2" diameter steel shaft for 4" rollers replaces a worn-out roller shaft on your boat trailer. Includes 2 pal nuts for mounting.


Spool rollers fit perfectly with shafts and end caps. I sanded and painted the mounting hardware for re-use. etrailer had what I needed, fair price and quick to ship.


as you can see, I still have some parts to replace. But I ordered these parts at the beginning of this week. Used free shipping. Delivered Saturday, done Saturday afternoon. So easy. Looking forward to finishing this trailer. Will use etrailer again


Was very happy with all my dealings with etrailer. I received all parts in a timely manner. Great people to deal with.
Nice to have a good midwest dealer.


Would have been five stars but package broke and lost a part. Customer support was excellent and they shipped the missing part right away. Could use better packaging but overall they met my needs and I’d have zero issues ordering parts from etrailer.


Work great not hard to attach to roller bunk


I didn't rate you as overall as excellecnt because the questions I had should have had the answeres there already. When buying parts, all details should be present, such as dimentions on all aspects. This includes measurments and details of mounting holes and other related part mating details. Many people are trying to rehab their trailers and boats, and do not completely know the engineering. Sorry, that's life. I have been very happy with the parts I have purchased, and was extreamly happly with the responsises to my questions. I just think that the details I needed should have already been there. Taking time to send questions is lost productivity, we are not pro-shops, and the delays can cost us much.
(overall, I am very happy with your site.


The product is as described. What is more important here is ETrailers willingness to step up on an issue. I paid for overnight shipping but it wasnt delivered. I contacted etrailers and they responded back right away. They gave me a partial refund on shipping though it was not their fault. That is customer service!! I will highly recommend.


This product fits well with the Roller Bracket and the 4" Bow Roller. Very Happy with order turnaround and ease of ordering. I'm fixing up my trailer and will be back here for more.


I have an older Spartan trailer. Parts can be hard to find.
Found what I needed at a fair price.
Paid extra for quicker delivery.
Received what I ordered by the promised delivery date...
what more could you ask for...
Would definitely order from etrailer again and would recommend them to others.


The products arrived on time. The service provided by Amy E was excellent. One of the rollers had to be replace and Amy E took care of it and refunded me back half the shipping from the first order. The service was again excellent and the product met my expectations. I would buy again from


Works great used with 4" roller. Fast d elivery.


Great website for trailer parts! Everything was easy to find and correctly described. Shipping was quick and reasonable. All parts were made well and fit properly.


The trailer rollers were well made and just as ordered. The followup on a second shipment was excellent. I would definitely buy again from etrailer.


I can't say enough good about etrailer. Their products are top notch and their delivery times are incredible.


Very good service
Roller look fine,
now if I can get them to install them....,,


Whenever I work on my boat or utility trailer, etrailer is the first place I look for parts.


Make sure everything is set before you hammer on the caps - they don't come off without a lot of effort (I used a torch to heat them enough to knock them off). The fact that they don't come off easily is great unless you have to replace one of the other pieces of the assembly.


Ordered parts for my boat trailer. The performed very well and fit perfectly.
Fast ship out. Great source for anything trailer related.


All the products I ordered was spotted on and how fast I received my order was awesome.


Just what I needed to repair my boat trailer. Thanks.


Excellent roll pin with cap nuts. Very well made!


Quick ship and follow up. Products as described.


Great service directing me to the right solution

A year with all new parts for the winch and stand. Im very happy
