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 Galvanized U-Bolts Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the CE Smith u-bolt for the bolster bracket, part number C-E-1-5-2-8-3-G-A-dash-4. Note, these u-bolts are available in a quantity of one, part number C-E-1-5-2-8-3-G-A. A quantity of two, part number C-E-1-5-2-8-3-G-A-dash-2. Or eight, part number C-E-1-5-2-8-3-G-A-dash-8. Our u-bolt is 3 and 1/16th wide by 3 and 13/16th long. The bolt itself is galvanized, which after it's stamped and molded, it's dipped, giving it three to five millimeters thick coating around the steel. With the galvanized protection on our bolt, it's suitable for use even in salt water.

It's a square design, so it's designed for the square frame. Secure your bracket to your trailer. Supplied with the u-bolt will be a split-lock washer and nut for each leg of the u-bolt, making this the perfect heavy-duty u-bolt to secure your bracket to your trailer. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install it. To begin our install, we're going to remove the old or manufacturer's boards and brackets. Since we're removing the bunk boards and brackets, we're just going to take the u-bolts off the frame.

Quick tech tip: Before you remove your boards, take a tape measure and get the height of your board. That way, when you install your new brackets and rollers, you can set it back to the same height. Now as we have the boards loose, we'll go ahead and just take them off the trailer and set them aside as they will not be re-installed. Next, we're going to install the new CE Smith bracket, part number C-E-1-0-0-0-3-G. Our bracket will replace the old or manufactured bracket that we removed. The u-bolt will go around the frame into the bracket and they get secure with a split-lock washer and nut.

Let's go ahead and put them in place now. As we install our fasteners, we're just going to install them finger tight this time. Keep in mind, when you tighten your u-bolt, make sure you tighten down both sides evenly. Once we have our bracket installed, we'll go ahead and tighten it down. All right. Now here on our rear support, or rear portion of our frame, we're going to go ahead and install our bracket and u-bolt.

Our bracket and u-bolt are going to sit in the exact same position as the old or manufacturer's bracket. Then again to secure it, we'll use a split-lock washer and hex nut on each side of our u-bolt. Remember when tightening down your u-bolt, make sure you tighten down both sides evenly. Now, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the remaining brackets. We'll now go ahead and take the roller bunk, set it onto our brackets, and secure the bunk to the brackets. Now when securing your bunk to the brackets, the hardware is not supplied. I'm going to use a bolt and flat washer. It's going to go down through the roller bunk, then through the bracket, and underneath I'm going to add another washer and a nylon lock nut. Now once we have all our hardware in place, we can tighten it down. And there you have it for our review and install of the CE Smith u-bolt for bolster brackets, part number C-E-1-5-2-8-3-G-A-dash-4.

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.

  • What Additional Bracket is Needed with the Replacement CE Smith Heavy Duty, Vertical Bunk Bracket
  • The other bracket mentioned in the description means that you would need two of the part # CE10162GA to stabilize the bunk bracket. For the u-bolts to use with this kit you would want the part # CE15283GA-2.

  • Recommended Bunk Brackets For Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • If there is no flex in the bunks with the pontoon boat loaded, you should be fine with the 1/2 inch clearance. If you are possibly hitting the frame of the trailer when traveling I recommend replacing the bunk brackets with taller ones like part # CE10161GA. This bracket sits on top of the frame of the trailer and are 8 inches tall, and 5 inches wide with 4 mounting holes that are spaced 1-1/2 inches apart center to center. This will give you options to mount the bunks at the height...

  • Availability of 7 Feet Long 2 x 4 Carpeted Bunk Boards for a Boat Trailer
  • The longest carpeted bunk boards we currently offer is 6 feet in length. It's the CE Smith part # CE27840 and each 6-foot long 2x4 is covered in marine grade carpet. You can easily construct some bunks yourself. Go to your local lumberyard and get some yellow pine 2x4x10 boards. You can then purchase some of the marine-grade carpet we offer, like part # CE11372. You'll need one roll per bunk, which means you'll have some scrap left over, which you can utilize as needed for other projects....

  • Is Mounting Hardware Included with CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies, # CE10000G-4
  • The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies, # CE10000G-4, do not come with any mounting hardware. Because the brackets can be used for different size and type bunks they do not include the hardware because it would not cover all applications. The holes that attach the bunk board to the swivel bracket are 3/8 inches in diameter. To attach the brackets to the trailer frame you can use U-bolts such as # CE15283GA-2 which are 3-13/16 inches long, 3-1/16 inches wide, and have a 1/2...

  • Replacement Carpeted Bunks For Boat Trailer Recommendation
  • We offer both carpet that you can use to replace your worn carpet on your bunks for your trailer, and we also carry replacement carpeted bunks for your trailer. The carpeted bunks we offer come in varied lengths. If you need 6 ft bunks, I recommend part # CE27840. These come in a set of 2, and is wrapped with marine-grade black carpeting. For 5 ft bunks, you would need part # CE27820, for 4 ft bunks, part # CE27810, and for 3 ft bunks you would need part # CE27800. If you decide...

  • Type And Size Bolts To Attach Swivel Bracket To Carpeted Bunk Board. NEED WORK
  • For bunk brackets we have CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 as well as others at different lengths. To attach the brackets to the trailer frame you can use U-bolts such as # CE15283GA-2 which are 3-13/16 inches long, 3-1/16 inches wide, and have a 1/2 inch diameter. Or you could use # CE15283GA-4 which is the same thing only it comes with 4 U-bolts instead of 2. These mounting slots, are a length of 2-3/4 of an inch. There is a width of a 1/2 inch spacing...

  • Does CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Boat Trailers # CE10196G have Weight Capacity
  • The CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Boat Trailers # CE10196G does not carry a specific weight rating. But since it is made from 1/8-inch-thick galvanized steel in typical use it will be over-rated for the application with plenty of safety margin. For your 2,000 lb boat it would work well and not be under-rated. For swivel brackets you'd then want the part # CE10206G and then for U-bolts you'd want the part # CE15283GA-2.

  • Recommended Carpeted Bunk Boards For Boat Trailer
  • The longest bunk boards we offer are 6-ft long. These are the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards, part # CE27840. We also carry 5-ft long bunk boards and they are part # CE27820. We do not carry the nuts and bolts needed for the mounting of the bunk boards because there are so many different size and style bunks but we do carry the swivel brackets the boards can be mounted to. It is recommended to use 2 brackets per bunk. I recommend part # CE10000G-4 which includes 4 brackets. To...

  • CE Smith Boat Trailer Compatibility with Inflatable Boat and Outboard Motor on Interstate
  • The CE Smith Boat Trailer for Boats and PWCs up to 12' Long - 800 lbs # CE48810 will work well to transport your boat on the interstate. The wheels cannot be switch to the 12 inch size without removing the fenders and adding larger brackets to accommodate the increased diameter. The wheel and tire combinations that come with the trailer are rated for speeds up to 65 mph. If you choose to change the tire size, I don't recommend going over the 12 inch wheels and you can use the Taskmaster...
