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.

All of my parts were an exact fit. Thanks etrailer

- YR1000Y

etrailer.com had everything I needed to replace critical parts for my 34ft. cruiser boat trailer. Reasonable prices and Wow SUPER FAST shipping!! I ordered YATES keel pads, keel rollers, bow rollers, roller end caps, pal nuts, and galvanized square U-bolts. All items were well packaged in one box. It's my second order from etrailer.com, very easy to navigate their inventory. One stop shopping. Absolutely will buy form etrailer again.

I’ll start be giving a huge AWESOME JOB TO THE STAFF, for the great service. I ordered the Yates keel and bow rollers to replace all the old black rubber on a stainless steel Boston Whaler trailer that I built for a friend about 18 years ago. The local suppliers didn’t have everything I needed in one place. So I checked online and found etrailer.com and ordered keel rollers, end caps, bow roller with bell ends. Confirmed the order about 3-4 in the morning Hawaii time and learned the order was shipped less that five hours latter. And the box was sitting outside my door two days later. Damn that’s fast, especially to Hawaii. Being a first time buyer , that’s one hell of a first impression. With pricing and shipping can’t be beat. Very much appreciated. GREAT JOB PEOPLE!!!!! Oh yeah, Im supposed to review the product too. Well, Yates TPR rollers good product, good price and exceptional service!!! Mahalo and God Bless, George D.

Just installed to replace the old cracked black rubber ones. I like the non-mar material much better. Doing business with etrailer was top notch. Wish all internet transactions were this good. Thank for your service.

- YR1000Y

Non-marking keel roller at a good price. Nice to receive what you order.

- YR1000Y

I installed a Yates 10" Keel roller with a Yates Endcap on each end. The 13" roller shaft was too long. I like the Yates TPR rollers. Not sure why they don't make a roller shaft that is the correct length.

- YR1000Y

Perfect fit (received 2) to update trailer. This stopped blacking of the boat.

- YR1000Y

Thank you to etrailer.com for having this product available and getting it to me quickly. Great selection, price and service.

- YR1000Y

Very durable material, should last longer than previous black rubber ones I had. I did notice they had very similar, short plastic bushings and hollow inside as rubber rollers. They were also a little shorter lengthwise....about 1/4", and skinnier too. I just raised my bunks to make up the clearance.

- YR1000Y

Replaced rubber rollers that fell apart after a few years. Service was surprisingly fast. Arrived sooner that promised.

- YR1000Y

Appears to be a good product but I will be able to rate it better after I've used it for a year or more. Excellent price.

Works fine. No defects noted so far.

Ask the Experts about this Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Parts

  • Does The Yates Keel Roller YR1000Y & YR1000B Come With Brackets?
    Both the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - TPR - 10" Long - 5/8" Shaft Item # YR1000Y and the Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - TPR - 10" Long - 5/8" Shaft - Blue Item # YR1000B are replacement rollers. Each roller is a different size so depending on what bracket you have currently. So these rollers do not come with the brackets. These are both designed for a 10" wide bracket with 5/8" diameter shaft. Here's a bracket that it will fit # CE10304G but we do not carry a 10" wide roller. If...

  • Can V-Keel Rollers be used on a Wood Sea Wall to Move a Pontoon Boat
    This could work but make sure the wall can handle it. The roller, # YR1000Y, does not have an official capacity but just for the ease of moving the boat on them I would use as many rollers as could fit. The issue is that since the entire boat is not supported at the same time, it could end up damaging the boat. Another option is to construct a device like in the picture I have included using rollers, # DL21741, and some lumber. With this type of set up, it would be very easy to move...

  • What is Included in the Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Part # YR1000Y
    The Yates keel roller # YR1000Y you referenced will not include a shaft and pal nuts. You will need to get part # CE10726A which will include 1 shaft and 2 pal nuts.

  • Roller Shaft Length Required For Yates 10 Keel Roller and Yates End Caps For Boat Trailer
    For the Yates Keel Roller # YR1000Y with the Yates Endcap # YR135-5Y on both sides you will need a 5/8" roller shaft. I recommend the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts # CE10727A. This shaft has an end length of 13" and includes 2 pal nuts. The endcaps are each 1" in length and have a recessed area to accept the pal nuts. To make up the 1" difference you can either cut 1" off the length of the shaft or add Flat Washers # 1140357 on each side of he endcaps allowing you to use the longer shaft....

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Short Bed with B and W Gooseneck
    The # CAB-C5G1216 will work well with your Mor/Ryde pin box without an adapter of any type. The problem though is that this does not typically give enough offset to allow a short bed truck additional turning clearance since the offset swivels when the trailer turns. What gooseneck hitch do you have installed in the bed of your truck?

  • Brackets to Install Keel Rollers Above a Boat Trailers Frame
    If I understand what you're trying to do I think we can help. We have the Adjustable Mounting Brackets for Keel Rollers # CE32004G. They'll install onto your trailer's frame and will hold a keel roller that is the width of the frame plus 2 inches. If you need a 10 roller # YR1000Y will work on the brackets using # CE10726A. If I missed the mark and misunderstood you just let me know.

  • How to Identify Replacement Bearings & Seals for Magic Tilt Boat Trailer
    The best way to confirm the correct replacement wheel bearings and seals for your 1999 Magic Tilt boat trailer is to pull one of the hubs and note the inner and outer bearing numbers and seal number. You can then directly search on those part numbers to find replacements. Trailer makers do alternate parts sometimes so even if you have the owner's manual and it says the trailer uses bearings X and Y, they may not be what is in the hubs. It is always best to check the existing parts. We...

  • 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.
