Adjustable boat guides can be fine-tuned to work with your boat and your trailer. The galvanized steel support posts mount horizontally on top of or below your trailer's frame rail. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between the rollers correctly matches the width of your boat. The rubber roller guides help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport.


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 - Guides - CE27610 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CE27610. These are the C. E. Smith Roller-Style Guide-Ons for boat trailers. They're going to measure at 21 inches tall from the top of this arm to the top of the rubber roller. The roller-style guides are going to support your boat and keep it centered while you're loading it onto your trailer. The posts are going to clamp on to the top or the bottom of your trailer frame.

You're going to get the mounting brackets. These are nice. They're going to allow you to adjust the distance between the posts. That way, you can fine tune the guides to work with your boat and your particular trailer. Now, the posts are going to be made from a galvanized steel construction, very strong and durable, and they're going to resist rust and corrosion. All of the mounting hardware that you need for a complete installation is provided, so all that's included.

You're also going to get 2 end-caps that go on top of the arms. Now, the u-bolts that it comes with, you can see that it's going to come with a flat u-bolt. It's going to come with 2 of those, as well as 2 formed u-bolts. For 3-inch wide trailer frames, you would run these u-bolts parallel or side-by-side over the frame. For 2-inch wide trailer frames, you would criss-cross the u-bolts. That's why it has the formed one, so it can go over top of the flat one.

You'd criss-cross the u-bolts around the frame. All of that information, as well as step-by-step installation, is going to be included in the detailed instructions. The rollers are going to be made from a black rubber construction, so they're going to protect the finish on your boat when loading and unloading. They're going to have the caps on each end. The rollers themselves, just this center section, that's going to give us an overall length of 9 inches. From end to end, that's going to give us an overall length of 13 inches. The 21-inch post measurement was measuring from the top of that arm down there to the top of the roller.

That's where we're going to get the 21-inch measurement from. Another thing that I want to point out is that it's going to feature 2 mount holes here on the top of the arms. These right here. These are already predrilled to accommodate a mounting bracket, if you want to add some lights to the posts. Those brackets are going to be sold separately with part number CE27630A. This product is made in the USA. You're going to get 2 roller-style boat guides. It is designed for trailer frames up to 3 inches wide by 4 and 1/4 of an inch tall. If you have a trailer frame that's up to 3 inches wide by 5 and 1/4 inch tall, you can use an extra-long u-bolt kit, part number CE11416. You can use that for mounting, and that is available here at eTrailer.com, but it is sold separately. Again, the center roller length is going to be 9 inches. They spin freely. The overall roller length, including the end caps there, is going to be 13 inches. The height from the top of here to the top of the roller again's going to measure 21 inches tall, and your tubing's going to give us a width of an inch and a half. You can kind of picture one of these on each side of your trailer frame. Again, you can mount it below or on top of the frame, and it gives you that option with the versatile mounting brackets. If we want to mount it on top, that'd go like that, and then, you can actually slide this in and out to accommodate the width of the boat that you're using, as well as to accommodate your particular boat trailer. Really nice system. Galvanized steel, so it's going to stand up well for a long time against rust and corrosion. That's going to do it for our review of part number CE27610. These are the C. E. Smith Roller-Style Guide-Ons. .

Prior to installing the roller guides loading the boat onto the trailer was a chore. The slightest breeze would push the boat off center. Now it is a one shot, one man operation. Works like a charm. 438042

If you are new to boating, these are so helpful towards loading your boat. They mount super easy. Once again etrailer.com has exceeded my expectations with shipping and quality of product. I am really starting to like this website...:) 554090

Product was good, only issue it that e-trailer sent me a used or returned item. Everything work just fine. This light had some cog webs inside the mounting area. 422127

I need to fit this product to my 1960 vintage Holsclaw trailer. I had ordered the longer guide units but found they wouldn't work because of the style of the trailer and having to center the keel of the boat to the main beam roller at the back. Since they extend above the gunnel of the boat and the gunnel being wider at the front of the boat then at the transom, proper alignment to the center beam roller was impossible. I needed a guide that positioned on the spray rail rather than the gunnel. I think this roller will work perfectly once I locate the boat back a few inches on the trailer. Thanks for all your help. I think I will be able to load my boat alone. 564565

I bought the roller guides and installed them, also bought the pipe guides in case I needed them. Very easy to install the roller guides and they work fine and will probably work well for others but didn't work for my needs. I needed the pipe guides which are tall enough for me to see while backing down the trailer. I will be sending the roller guides back as I don't need them. Thanks 520329

100% satisfied! Everything came in and delivered in 24 hours. couldn’t believe it. I highly recommend them. 517987

As the unit mounts under the frame the tru height is less than 21 by the height of the frame. In this case, 5. I am thinking of extending the height a bit to insure the top is out of the water and visible for running the boat onto the trailer. Otherwise, the service was good and the product was servicalble. 76942

The product is just as pictured. It works as you would expect. For my boat and trailer, it was hard to get them close enough to be true guides. I am right at the edge of the bend to get them barely close enough. There is not any way to adjust the angle so you don't really have any choice, it is mount them deeper in or father out. I think I have them working well enough though. If needed to get them closer, I could add some spacers between the roller and metal upright or get a cross bar welded on the trailer to mount the closer. If you have a cross bar to mount to, you have no issues, if you only have the sides, distance may be an issue. Not a fault of the design, just a limitation. They do help me load my boat, which is why I bought them. Since they are the rear guides though, I just wish they were closer. 653284

These C.E. Smith 27610 trailer guides are really well made. Pretty heavy duty and made in the USA. Install was not a problem. Took about a half an hour. A deep socket or a ratcheting wrench make the job a lot easier. Won't really be able to use them until I take my boat out of the water in late fall. I am confident they will work well. E-Trailer customer service is second to none and they honor their price pledge with no hassle. 285421

I used the roller guides set forward on the bunk trailer so bow would remain straight when retrieving the boat. They work fine . If possible you might consider allowing for more lateral adjustment to provide more flexibility ( fit wider hull on smaller trailer ). The product installed easily and all parts were well made. It would also be helpful if the angle of the roller could be adjusted to fit different hulls ( i.e. skiff/dorey). A quality product at a fair price, it does the job. 429675
