  • Roller and Bunk Parts
  • Brackets
  • 13-3/16 Inch Tall
  • Roller Bracket
  • CE Smith
  • Galvanized Steel

Keep your boat's bow away from your winch and in line with it while you are trailering. The bracket accepts any 3" to 4" bow roller or Y-stop. 11-Gauge pre-galvanized steel can be painted to match your trailer.


Features:

  • Heavy-duty bracket holds a bow stop to protect your winch
    • Designed to fit around a 3-1/2" wide winch
    • Can also be mounted alone on winch stand
    • Accepts 3" - 4" bow roller or Y-stop
  • Bolt-on installation
    • Does not include mounting hardware
  • Sturdy, 11-gauge pre-galvanized steel construction
    • Can be primed and painted to provide even more resistance to corrosion and to match your trailer's paint finish
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 1 bracket
  • Dimensions:
    • Height: 13-3/16"
    • Inside width: 3-11/16"
    • Outside width: 3-15/16"


Typically found on winch stands mounted on trailer tongues, bow roller brackets position a bow roller or Y-stop in front of the winch to prevent the boat's bow from making contact with the winch.


Pre-Galvanized Steel

Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of the pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process. Because of the thinness of the coating (less than 1 mil) and the fact that the edges remain exposed, pre-galvanized parts can begin to oxidize and rust quickly, so it's recommended that they be primed and painted.

I expected it to stiffer, but it's never shown signs of failure, so I'm happy. And you had the right part for my needs.

Great for PWCs and fishing boats but probably a bit lightweight for larger boats. Works well on my Sea Doo trailer. I was going to make my own, but for what I could buy the material for, I was able to buy two of these. Bottom line, I'd buy these again for what I'm using them for.

Still working great after a year! Theres no rust or deflection in the bracket. Sure was a lot easier than making my own!

The etrailer folks were extremely helpful. The part I ordered arrived swiftly and was exactly what I needed to complete my boat trailer fix. Happy to recommend and pleased to do more business with them in the future.

As advertised. Arrived in just a few days. Heavy duty and works perfectly on my trailer set up.

This bracket is machined well and the galvanized surface appears well done. I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the metal is a little thinner than I would like it to be. My boat is a 19’ fiberglass skiff and I’m not sure the bracket is heavy enough to stand up to the weight of my boat. It should be no issue for a lighter / smaller boat.

My trailer came without a bow roller. The parts I ordered were just what I needed to add that to my trailer. Fast delivery and good price. Web site was good also.

Excellent customer service. Fast delivery and product exactly as described. Installation was easy and worked perfect. This is my second order with etrailer and it won't be my last. Matter of fact, I am looking at lifejackets today. Thanks ladies and gentlemen!!!

This bracket worked out perfectly for my installation. I mounted it below the winch for two reasons: it is too narrow for the winch I already had, and the bow stop needed to be positioned below the winch attachment point on the boat (the front boat handle).

All working well, thanks.

Received in an extremely timely manner and exactly as ordered! Part fit perfectly on my multi sport trailer and seemed to be of good quality. Will definitely use etrailer in the future.

It's as advertised, however it could be even better if of a heavier gauge steel. It flexes rather easily, but have not yet had an opportunity to put it to use to see if that presents a problem. Overall, satisfied.

I bought this bow roller mounting bracket to replace an older bracket that did not fit my new set-up. The new bracket fits perfectly. It was delivered well ahead of the projected delivery date.

The bracket seems to be working fine. No problems

what I needed to put bow stop on my jon boat trailer



- CE31005PG

I have a 35+ plus year old shorelander boat trailer. I had recently purchased a 12 foot tracker flat bottom Jon boat. The problem I had was trying to fit my new tracker flat front boat to my old bow stop. My old bow stop is V shaped. I found a bow stop from etrailer for flat front Jon boats but it did not fit the bracket on my old trailer. I did a little research on this site and found the perfect solution. The solution was a wider mounting bracket to hold the new bow stop. The bow stop is a Yates 3 inch wide. My old bow stop was a Yates 2 inch V. The bracket is very universal for older trailers. etrailer is the only company I could find that offered this product. The prices are great and the shipping is good. I have also purchased new axle mounting plates and leaf spring bushings from here for the same trailer and they fit like a glove. The axle mounting plates and bushings are made by the same people as the bow stop bracket which is CE Smith. Thank you etrailer! I will be a continued customer!

  • Dimensions of Bolt Holes on CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket for Winch Stands # CE31005PG
    The diameter of the mounting bolt hole on the CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket for Winch Stands, # CE31005PG, is .45 inch. The bracket uses a 5-1/4 inches long x 1/2 inch diameter steel shaft for attaching the roller/Y-stop, which is part # CE10700A. The bolt through hole size for the winch shaft bolt is .75 inch diameter. I have included a diagram that shows the dimensions of the bolt holes for the bracket.

  • Recommended Bow Roller Bracket for 4 Inch Wide Winch
    The closest bow roller bracket for winch stands that we have to the dimensions you listed is the CE Smith # CE31005PG. This bracket is 13-3/16" tall and is designed to fit around a 3-1/2" wide winch. We do not currently offer any brackets that are designed to fit around a 4 inch wide winch. I have also included a link that takes you to our selection of brackets for you to look at.

  • Is MaxxTow Winch Compatible With CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket
    I went to the warehouse to take a measurement and found that the MaxxTow Positive Lock Hand Winch # MT70176 measured 3-1/2 inches across. This would make it compatible with the CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket # CE31005PG which is designed to fit around a 3-1/2 inch wide winch. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to take a look at.

  • Can Bow Eye Safety Chain be Ran to CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket # CE31005PG
    You would not want to attach a safety chain for the boat bow eye to the # CE31005PG. While this is a sturdy bracket that is designed to have a winch mounted to the base it's not rated for having a safety chain attached to it. You want the bow eye safety chain attaching directly to the boat trailer frame.

  • Winch Post Setup and Winch Recommendation for 2000 Four Winns Vista
    Typically the bow eye/hook will sit just below the roller stop. In addition to making for an easier retrieval, having the bow eye below the roller also provides a safety measure. The potential danger of your current setup is that in the event of an accident on the road there's nothing keeping the boat from launching up that roller and into the back of your tow vehicle. If you have the bow stop above the eye/hook (with the winch strap below it) the bow can't get over the stop. We currently...

  • Trailer Mounted Bracket for a Bow Stop for Jon Boat
    You could use a bracket such as # CE31005PG for bow stop # YRJONBLOCK. A lot of trailers use this type of bracket for bow stops. I have also included a link to all of the brackets we carry.

  • Replacing Bow Strap and Winch Mount on on Older Shoreline Sailboat Trailer
    That's a really interesting setup. We aren't really going to be able to help much if you want to use that winch mount in it's current configuration. If you could instead mount the winch like in the picture I attached you could then go with a different bow roller possibly. You'd be able to use the bow roller part # YR450Y-400Y you mentioned as well as the bracket part # CE31005PG.

  • Using Two Bow Stops on Either Side of a Boat Trailer Winch
    This trailer was either set up this way by the manufacturer or the owners had to fabricate some extensions and then attach brackets and the stops to make this set up. Extensions would have to be fabricated by a machine shop or a welder and then you could use a bracket such as # CE31005PG with jon block # YRJONBLOCK.

  • Bow Stop, Bracket, and Shaft Recommendations for a Boat Trailer
    You will need a bracket that has a 3/8 inch diameter shaft. At this time we do not offer a 3/8 inch diameter shaft. I recommend bow stop # YR7Y44-4 used with bracket # CE31005PG and shaft # CE10700A for your bow stop set up.

  • Can Y-Shaped Bow Stop Be Replaced with Bow Roller On Boat Trailer
    If you are referring to a bow stop such as the Yates Y-Style Bow Stop for Boat Trailers part # YR7Y44-4 then yes you can replace this with a bow roller such as the Bow Roller Assembly part # YR450Y-400Y which won't mark the boat. This can then be used with the CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket for Winch Stands part # CE31005PG or you can match one to fit the bracket you have now from the list below.

  • Bow Stop Setup Availability for a Boat Trailer
    I believe you are talking about a bow roller like the part # CE31005PG. I recommend bow stop # YR7Y44-4 used with bracket # CE31005PG and shaft # CE10700A for your bow stop set up.

  • Replacement Bow Roller Brackets for Boat Trailer
    While we don't have any specific replacements for your boat trailer we do have bow roller brackets that you may be able to use. For example, the CE Smith Bow Roller Bracket # CE31005PG with the Yates Bow Roller for Boat Trailers - Heavy-Duty Rubber # YR4174-4 and Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers # CE10700A. I have added links to video reviews of these parts as well as links to our entire selection of brackets for you to look through.

  • Replacement Bow Roller Bracket, Shaft and Roller
    We don't have any bow rollers that will fit a roller larger than 1/2 inch in diameter so the best recommendation I could make would be to replace your current setup with something like the part # CE31005PG for a bracket, part # CE10700A for a new roller shaft, and then part # YR300Y for a roller.

  • Availability of 2 Inch Bow Roller Bracket for Boat Trailer
    We don't offer a 2 inch bow roller/bracket. The smallest we offer is a 3 inch, like part # CE29334. The shaft and hardware is zinc plated for corrosion resistance. The roller bracket, like # CE31005PG is pre-galvanized which means it was galvanized before it was formed into its finished shape. We don't offer the hardware for mounting the bracket to the trailer.
