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 etrailer.com.

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.

I ordered on Tuesday evening and received what I ordered on Friday morning. Used a band saw to cut off 1/4 inch of the 13" shaft due to my original shafts on my 1994 ProCraft Trailer having 12 3/4" shafts. I'll just have to see if the new rollers last as long as the original rollers, which were also Yates rollers. Representative on the phone was very pleasant to talk to.

Hi quality for a great price. Overhauled my Boat Trailer rollers, bearings, bunks, wiring and more. I usually shop parts like this on Ebay, Amazon...etc.. Etrailer beat all of their prices, and with free shipping on my $99+ order, the deal got even sweeter. Got my parts in 3 days and had the job done in the next 2 days. All parts fit perfectly and my trailer is like new. This is my second order from etrailer. As we all know it's "always something" with anything marine related. They have earned my business.

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • What Length Roller Shaft Is Needed To Add Bells To An 8 Inch Long Keel Roller
    The Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10727A which has a 13" long x 5/8" diameter shaft should allow you to add bow bells to an 8" long keel rollers. I don't have an exact length you will need as it depends on which bells you go with but you can just cut down the above if it's too long. I have attached a full list of our roller shafts and bow bells for you as well.

  • Should Boat Trailer Roller Shafts be Greased
    Greasing the roller shafts is not necessary but it wouldn't hurt anything and may actually help resist corrosion. If you need a tub of marine grease you can use # L11404.

  • Shaft Recommendation for Use with Keel Roller part # CE10727A
    For just the shaft you would want the part # CE10727A to go along with the roller part # YR12000. The shaft comes with the pal nuts as well that secure it.

  • Can Holes be Drilled into Roller Shaft
    While I obviously cannot give you any type of guarantee that your drill press will allow you to drill 1/8 inch holes in the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts # CE10727A, it is certainly practical to believe that you should be able to do it. We had a customer report to us that they used a band saw to trim a bit of length off the shaft, and while it isn't an apples to apples comparison, it does speak to the fact that it is reasonable to assume a decent drill press will allow you to drill through it.

  • How Does a Keel Roller Fit on 5/8 Inch Shaft
    The roller sits loosely enough on the 5/8 inch shaft that it will spin easily, but not so loose that it's sloppy. If you needed a replacement shaft, a 13-5/8 inch long shaft is available as part # CE10727A. It includes two pal nuts.

  • Are the Ends of the 5/8 Inch Steel Roller Shaft Part # CE10727A Tapered
    The ends of the roller shaft, part # CE10727A, are not tapered. The shaft is 5/8 of an inch in diameter from end to end.

  • Can I Use the CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller on my Trailer
    I may have a solution for you, but it doesn't look like your trailer has any bracket in place in order to use the CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29505 on your boat trailer. For that reason you would first need to have a roller bracket like the CE Smith Panel Bracket for 12" Boat Trailer Rollers part # CE10305G welded to the frame or attached with U-bolts to match your trailer frame size. If you went the welded on route, the # CE10305G is galvanized steel...

    I have a few options to help with loading the boat on the trailer but the best would have to be the CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29505.

    To mount the CE Smith Panel Bracket for 12" Boat Trailer Rollers - Galvanized Steel # CE10305G you were looking at you have two options. The first being welding the bracket to your trailer. If you go this route you need to make sure to sand off the galvanized coating as it gives off a harmful gas when it is welded. The second and more common option is using U-bolts. The U-bolts will need to match the size of the frame on your trailer so you will need to measure that. For example we...

  • Capacity of YR12244-125EC Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Keel Roller
    According to Yates Rubber, the # YR12244-125EC roller technically carries a 400 lb capacity, but the roller shaft like # CE10727A and the mounting bracket like # CE10305G do most of the heavy lifting. This is the strongest keel roller they offer. My contact at Yates tells me that the first thing to bend would be the roller shaft, and a 5/8 inch diameter shaft like what I referred to above wouldn't begin bending until around the 2000 lb mark. It's recommended to install more than one...

  • Recommended Boat Trailer Keel Roller
    You'll want to ensure the height of the new roller is consistent with that of the other support components, such as the roller bunks. This will ensure no one part of the trailer bears more weight than the others. Next time you load the boat you can measure the space at your preferred mounting location and then use the adjustable bracket # CE32004G referenced above to locate the new roller in the correct position. We offer keel rollers in both black rubber and non-marking thermoplastic...

Then you can use the 8 Inch Keel Roller, # DL21712, and a 5/8 inch Steel Shaft like part # CE10727A that includes two pal nuts You will need to measure your trailer to see if you have space to mount the brackets. You will need an 8 inch area that the brackets can be installed in and adjusted for the roller to contact the keel of the boat.

  • 7-3/8 and 11-3/8 Inch Keel Rollers for a Caulkins Boat Trailer
    There are some common size rollers found on boat trailers but really they can be just about any size. Roller # YR8000 has an overall length of 7-3/4 inches so it would fit in the 7-7/8 inch spacing. It fits on a 5/8 inch diameter shaft # CE10725A. Roller # YR12000 is actually 11-3/4 inches long and so it would fit the 11-7/8 spacing of your brackets. It also fits a 5/8 inch diameter shaft # CE10727A.

  • Mounting Boat Trailer Bunk Boards to Vertical Bunk Boards that Tilt
    I like the idea of using a shaft and pal nuts. That way there is less of a chance of it binding up like what might happen if you used regular nuts and bolts. You would have to make sure the shaft has the capacity for the load that you are going to put on it. A shaft like # CE10727A as an example is a solid steel bar, 5/8 inches in diameter and while it does not have an official capacity it would be very sturdy. I have included a link to the other shafts we carry.
