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.

11" Long x 5/8" diameter steel shaft for 10" rollers replaces a worn-out roller shaft on your boat trailer. Includes 2 pal nuts for mounting.


Etrailer always has what I need at any time I go to work on all of my equipment Thanks very much


The roller fit perfectly on my 25’ boat trailer but got worn out and the shaft bent pretty quick; it needed to be replaced after a couple of short trips.


Everything worked, and looks great. If I need any other trailer parts, will definitely order them from here. Parts were package safely and arrived damage free. Great prices and great service.

Have had for a year. Does what it’s supposed to.


You have a good selection of
and better than expected shipping process. I am pleased with the items that. I purchased, and will buy from you if the need arises again. Thank you


Easy peasy


My keel rollers needed to be replaced on my boat trailer so I ordered the rollers with new roller shafts with pal nuts. I am sure glad I did. When I got around to changing them out, my old roller shafts were rusted and bent. These were a perfect fit and I expect they will last a long, long time.


Purchased this and will have to hacksaw in half because I couldn't find 2 suitable shafts for 4" roller. Mirror surface provides for smooth roller rotation.

Continues to work perfectly after a year and expect the same for the foreseeable future.


Excellent replacement part. Fast shippi ng


Love your selection and prices.Here is my drag boat and my helper.Customer service is excellent!!!


bought the 11"x 5/8" roller shaft for a 8 inch keel roller and end caps fit perfectly, good quality and fast shipping and was able to track the order easily from my phone. thank you


The roller worked perfectly for the trailer I was redoing. I also bought a couple of other parts that I needed they have great products, quick shipping and excellent customer service. Will keep buying all of my trailer parts from here


This item was an exact replacement for the one on my bass boat trailer. Installation was easy and took only a few minutes.


As always, etrailer came through for me. They answered questions and concerns about the product of my interest - V keel rollers for my trailer - and confidently assured me that their product would work for me. The rollers arrived in two days, are of good quality, and fit perfectly. Thanks again etrailer!


Very happy with the product. The roller and rod fight perfectly.
The demensions were perfect as the were on the order.Fast
transaction and shipping. Will be ordering trailer parts again from this company for sure.


Shafts with pins rather than caps would have been better. I am contemplating getting washers and pins and drilling holes in the shaft ends to get a better fit. The caps make me a little nervous although I have to assume the design has been tested and have stood the test of time.


I am very pleased with the rollers and hubs that I purchased. They were easy to install on the trailer and have worked well for the past year.


These roller shafts are just as they are described. same quality as the more expensive ones sold by others. I'm very pleased with them and all the products I ordered.


Ordered ten 10" rollers and roller shafts for my boat trailer. Arrived sooner than I expected and I am very pleased with the quality of the product and the service from etrailer. Will use them again for my trailer needs.


Great products just wish the shipping end would of kept the box in better condition. Appreciate all the customer service I’ve received and will be using the company soon for another trailer!


Always fast shipping and great customer service.


Received order with one item short. etrailer immediately corrected the problem and shipped me the missing parts.


For the price of those items could not have gotton a better deal anywhere else. Good quality. Will not shop anywhere else for my boat trailer needs!


Fine, FYI, used this with a 8" roller with two end rollers. Fits fine.


Worked as described, easy tp install.

  • Recommended Roller Shaft with Caps for 9" Wide Rollers
    The Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10726A will work great with 9" rollers but you'd need to cut them down a bit. We don't offer rollers specifically for 9" rollers.

  • Does The CE Smith Keel Roller Come with Shaft and Pal Nuts?
    The CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - PVC - 10" Long - 5/8" Shaft - Amber # CE29518 does not come with the shaft and pal nuts. I recommend using the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers - Zinc-Plated Steel - 11" x 5/8" # CE10726A for those components and then you can use a bracket like # CE10500G.

  • What is Included in the Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Part # YR1000Y
    The Yates keel roller # YR1000Y you referenced will not include a shaft and pal nuts. You will need to get part # CE10726A which will include 1 shaft and 2 pal nuts.

  • Roller Shaft and Pal Nuts For a Keel Roller with a 5/8 Inch Inner Shaft Diameter
    You are going to need a 5/8 inch diameter shaft and pal nuts. You could use # CE10721A which comes with both. The shaft is 5-1/2 inches long. We also have other lengths that come with pal nuts: # CE10726A for 11-1/8 inches, # CE10725A for 9-1/4 inches, # CE10727A for 13-1/2 inches, or # CE10722A for 6-1/4 inches. The roller has a 3 inch diameter.

  • Roller Shaft for 10 Inch Boat Trailer Keel Roller
    All the roller shafts we offer are constructed of zinc plated steel. Unfortunately, we don't offer any in stainless. The Yates Rubber # YR1000Y 10 inch keel roller you'd looked at would typically use an 11 x 5/8 inch shaft like the # CE10726A which includes the pal nuts. The roller would typically be mounted to the boat trailer using a panel bracket like part # CE10304G.

  • Correct Roller Shaft for CE Smith Side Guide Roller for Boat Trailers
    The reason that you are having difficulty finding a roller shaft for the CE Smith Side Guide Roller # CE29562 is because it is the replacement middle roller for the CE Smith Roller-Style Guide-Ons # CE27610. For this application you would use something like the 12-3/4" x 1/2" # CE10705A because there needs to be some extra length for the end pieces. If you are needing a standard roller then I recommend the Yates Keel Roller # YR10000 which is 10" long and works great with the 11" x 5/8"...

  • Replacement Yates Keel Roller for Shallow V Beam Boat Trailer
    The correct roller and shaft with Pal nuts for the # YR10000 roller is the # CE10726A. Without knowing the dimensions of your shallow V beam it would be hard for me to tell you exactly which bracket will work for you. Two of the most common mounting brackets for this roller is the adjustable # CE32004G or the panel bracket # CE10304G. If you wanted to tell me the dimensions you find, I'd be more than happy to help you find a bracket that will work for your application. I have linked...

  • Brackets to Install Keel Rollers Above a Boat Trailers Frame
    If I understand what you're trying to do I think we can help. We have the Adjustable Mounting Brackets for Keel Rollers # CE32004G. They'll install onto your trailer's frame and will hold a keel roller that is the width of the frame plus 2 inches. If you need a 10 roller # YR1000Y will work on the brackets using # CE10726A. If I missed the mark and misunderstood you just let me know.

  • How to Identify Replacement Bearings & Seals for Magic Tilt Boat Trailer
    The best way to confirm the correct replacement wheel bearings and seals for your 1999 Magic Tilt boat trailer is to pull one of the hubs and note the inner and outer bearing numbers and seal number. You can then directly search on those part numbers to find replacements. Trailer makers do alternate parts sometimes so even if you have the owner's manual and it says the trailer uses bearings X and Y, they may not be what is in the hubs. It is always best to check the existing parts. We...

  • Roller Shaft Dimensions for a 10" Keel Roller
    To fit a 10" keel roller like the CE Smith Keel Roller # CE29518 you will want the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts # CE10726A. This 5/8" shaft is 11" long and comes with the 2 pal nuts to secure the shaft inside the brackets. If you wish to add the Yates Endcap # YR135-5Y you will want to use a Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts # CE10727A that is 13" long to account for the additional length of the endcaps.
