Video Transcript for Yates Boat Trailer Keel Roller Review

Hi there boat trailer owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Yates Replacement Keel Roller. These are available in either a 5/8th inch or half inch inner diameter. You want to make sure you get the appropriate one that matches your keel roller rods diameter. And they're also available in two different types of material, either a heavy duty rubber, which is what you see here, and it's going to be black in color. Or in a TPR, which is a thermal plasticized rubber.

That's going to be an extremely hard durable rubber. The TPR is available in either a cream or blue color. All of these are available in various lengths, so you can get the appropriate one to match your particular trailer.Having a properly functioning keel roller is important for the bottom of your boat when you're pulling it up onto your trailer. You want it to be able to easily glide across the roller and give it a nice surface that it can sit on that's going to absorb any road vibrations and impacts that you're going to hit, like potholes and such out there. This rubber is going to absorb a lot of that, so it's not transferred into the hull of your boat.Our customer decided to go with the heavy duty rubber, but one of the nice things about the TPR over the heavy duty rubber is if there's no chance that it could leave any marks on your trailer.

with this one there is a possibility if it shifts left or right or something, and it slides across the rubber, it might leave a little bit of a black mark. You can wipe it off, but it'll be there. With the TPR you don't have to ever worry about that. You're also going to get a similar shape so you can match it up to your old one. That way it helps center your boat and properly matches the hole underneath to keep it centered on your trailer.

And the rubbers nice and grippy, so once you've got it cinched down, it's really going to hold it nice and tight.If you follow along with us, we're going to go ahead and replace this roller. I highly recommend that you replace your keel roller route at the same time, because once you remove the caps on the end, they're usually damaged and you have to replace the caps. And your rollers often gets damaged from corrosion and rolling around and everything else out there, so we can have an updated to have it nice and smooth like this here.And he can see a keel roller on a small fishing boat here, and you can see that the boat is rested on top of this. And again, that's real important for the hull of your boat. It's going to absorb a lot of that road impact.

Now this one here is pretty wore out. You can see all the stress cracks in it. So it looks like this one's ready for replacement as well, so we'll be heading here next.Start by removing our rollers nuts. We're just going to get behind it with a pair of pliers. We're just going to pop that cap off there. Our shaft will then slide out. We can remove our roller and then install our new components. And you can see here before we slide our roller on it's constructed of a heavy duty rubber and inserted into each end we have bushings, so that way it can easily glide and roll when it contacts against the metal service here. Because the rubber would want to grab, its got a more grab type property. It's not slick, kind of like the tires on your road. This is a nice slick composite type material that's easily going to let it slide.We've got our shaft here, and I find it easier to get one cap 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 if 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 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. And that completes our look at Yates Replacement Keel Rollers.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (117 Customer Reviews)

Replace the worn-out roller on your boat trailer with this heavy-duty rubber one. This keel roller functions as a direct replacement for rollers that fit standard 10" wide brackets with a 5/8" diameter shaft.


Better than the one that was on the tra iler.


Perfect replacement for my worn out rol lers.


The exact replacement parts that I needed. Great customer service with quick shipping. Price was quite a bit cheaper than Bass Pro. Highly recommended.


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


These rollers along with the shafts I purchased should be perfect for my project.


Worked well with my application to support the transom saver bracket.
Received it fast as promised.


Today I installed this on my boat trailer. Everything was provided as requested. The parts are extremely strong and it was easy to install. I expect it is going to make my job of loading my boat much easier and I'm very happy with their delivery time and quality product. Thanks

Dennis M.


They work very well and Im very pleased with them. Thanks.


Good customer service follow up!!! Thank you!!


The order was perfect and received 5 days after the initial order.


Great product ,no problems at all.


I recently ordered wall mounted kayak racks and what was shown was red and black. What came was gray and black. When I called back they refunded me my money as I was trying to match the 2 I already had. He told me he had no way of asking the distribution center to send Ted, that I would get whatever they sent. I was amazed. After some time I called back and got a separate person who said they could help me. I re/ordered and will see what I get.


My old keel rollers were wore out on my boat trailer. These were a perfect replacement, good quality, and easy to install. These rollers made a huge difference in ease of loading the boat back on the trailer. I should have done this when I first bought my boat and trailer (1993 models) last year.


Same product as available in local marine suppliers but at a better price.
If your replacing everyone should remember to also replace the steel shaft and cap nuts at the same time. Make sure you measure the length of the shaft as some roller locations include outer mushroom shaped end rollers that take a longer shaft.


Excellent replacement part and fast shipping. Thank you


Well made keel roller that was used for the loading end of the boat trailer alng with end rollers and brackets.


This is better than the Yates roller and it is cheaper. It is heaver duty and weights more than Yates. I bought both brands and compared The Yates looked better far as no scuffs on rubber but that means nothing to adverage person.


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.


The product was OEM boat trailer rollers by Yates. Delivery was much faster than expected. From time of order placed to being at my door was four days. If you need it faster than that go to your local boat store and pay 40 - 50% more.


The boat trailer Got more use this year than in the past. The keel roller is still in great condition and I feel will last through many more boating seasons.


Rubber keel rollers worked great. Just wish the shipping was not so much. Still would not shop anywhere else for my boat trailer needs. Also the women that helped me order the rollers was great hope she gets a raise soon!


Well made roller. I built a aluminum roof rack for my girls kayaks.
The rack goes on a van. Put roller on the back on each side so they can just push the kayaks up on top. works great.


The rollers were for a non trailer project. Thanks for your product.


Etrailer did as advertised. I ordered new rollers for a boat trailer. Quality was good and shipped as promised. This is my second order and will order from them again.


Rebuilding a old boat trailer. Was able to replace rollers with exact parts.


I ordered these rollers to replace some from a trailer that is over 50 years old. I was amazed at how easy it was to find what I was looking for, place my order and how fast it was shipped and arrived. The rollers appear to be good quality. They will be a custom install on this trailer.

  • Roller Shaft Replacement for 10 Inch Yates Roller
    For the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - Heavy-Duty Rubber - 10" Long - 5/8" Shaft # YR10000 will use the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers - Zinc-Plated Steel - 11" x 5/8" # CE10726A. However, if you add the Yates Endcap for Boat Trailer Rollers - Heavy-Duty Rubber - 5/8" Shaft - Qty 1 # YR134-5 like your photo, you will want the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts for Boat Trailer Rollers - Zinc-Plated Steel - 13" x 5/8" # CE10727A.

  • 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...

  • Does CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly CE10404G Come with a Metal Sleeve On Roller
    No the 10 inch keel roller of the part # CE10404G does not have a metal sleeve. It has a plastic sleeve instead. You can see it on the part # YR10000 which is just the roller that comes with this assembly.

  • 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"...

  • How To Find Correct Length Keel Roller For Older Trailer
    I can help you find the correct sized keel rollers that you need. Most Keel Rollers fit either a 5/8 inch shaft or a 1/2 inch diameter shaft. You want to know the diameter of the shaft that the rollers fit on. The easiest way to figure out the length of the Keel Roller that you need is to measure the distance between the brackets on the roller assembly. All of the 10 or 12 inch Keel Rollers we carry fit a 5/8 inch diameter shaft. I recommend Yates Keel Roller part # YR12244-125EC if your...

  • Is Bushing of Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers # YR10000 Removable
    I've had this question before and have tried to remove the inner bushings/endcaps of the Keel Rollers like the part # YR10000 and they do not come out. If you check out the picture I attached you can see that the white roller end cap does not actually run the length of the roller and actually just fits into the ends of the roller. This is designed to fit a 5/8 inch diameter roller shaft.

  • Comparing 10" CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailer and Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers
    The main difference between CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29518 and Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # YR10000 is that the former is non-marring and the latter is not. This means the latter could leave black streaks on the boat hull from contact. The former is made of PVC which is also stronger and more durable than the latter which is made of rubber.

  • 10 Inch Black Rubber Keel Roller for a 1/2 Inch Shaft
    The black rubber keel roller that are 10-inches and what we currently offer is # YR10000. Unfortunately, it's for a 5/8 inch shaft. What you could do is replace the roller assembly with the # CE10404G. This V keel roller supports your boat's keel as it sits on the trailer. I also included a link to all the keel rollers we currently offer for you to view.

  • Looking for 10 Inch Keel Roller w/ Bushing that Runs All the Way Through
    The 10 inch keel rollers from Yates Rubber, like part # YR10000 have a bushing on either end and a metal tube in the middle that acts like a bushing. The # 811 simply has the plastic caps at each end. I'd recommend the # YR1000B from Yates. The non-marking roller is soft like polyurethane but is stronger than rubber. The roller has bushings on either end and a metal tube running through the roller that acts like a bushing.

  • Replacement Keel Roller for Rollers with Yates 10000 Printed On Them
    First, thank you very much for your repeat business and kind words. The Yates Keel Roller # YR10000 referenced in your question is exactly what you need to replace the rollers on your boat trailer. I actually went out to our warehouse to take a look at our stock of these models, and found that each unit does feature the "Yates 10000" marking, along with a "Z" number that varied between each roller. I was also able to find each of the "Z" numbers you referenced within our stock. These...

  • Will Yates 10 Inch Keel Roller Work on a Calkins Boat Trailer with 4600 Pound Bayliner Boat
    Yates keel roller # YR10000 is made of heavy duty rubber so it should be no problem when used with other rollers of the same size for your 4600 pound Bayliner boat. The capacity is going to be based more on the brackets than the rollers though so if the brackets are good then the rollers can handle the weight. If you do need some brackets you could use # CE32004G.
