Video Transcript for Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Parts - Roller and Bunk Parts - YR450Y Review

Today we're going to review part #yr450y. This is the Yates bow roller for boat trailers. This roller is constructed of a thermal plastic rubber material. This material is stronger and more durable than your traditional rubber roller. It is also softer and more pliable than the polyurethane. This material is a non-marking, non-scratching material and it is made in the USA.

This roller will replace the bow roller on your boat trailer and it does help in the loading and the unloading of the boat. This roller will support the front of the boat as it sits on the trailer and it will help absorb any road shock while the boats being towed. We're going to do a couple measurements on this. The length is 3 3/4 of an inch. The diameter is 3 inches.

Does have the heavy duty nylon bushings on both ends. This roller is designed to fit a 4 inch wide bracket that uses a half inch diameter shaft. And that should do it for part #yr450y.

Far superior product compared to what was on there (old 19 year-old rubber rollers). To do my ShoreLand'r trailer, I hooked up the trailer to my pickup, chocked the wheels, jacked up the front end of the boat while keeping the winch line hooked up, and unbolt the old roller. Then simply install the new roller, check your bolts, and your ready to hit the water. Thanks etrailer.com!

Terrific service from etrailer and the roller works great.

This is the easiest upgrade you'll ever make to you boat trailer! It takes all of 5 minutes to install. I bought this to replace the old (my boat is a 97 and I believe this was the original rubber roller) that was making black marks on the boat. No more marks with this roller and it was a perfect fit! Shipping was fast. Best price around. There is no reason to ever use a rubber roller again. I just wish I did it sooner.

I use this as a hose roller and it works great. Wish it was deeper grooved but since this is not what it's made for it still works fine.

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.

8/4/18 We needed to purchase 5 rollers for our boat trailer but were unsure of a couple details. I called etrailer's help line, was connected with Greg S. We knew we wanted to try Yates TPR rollers. Greg was very helpful and patient with me on the phone. Completed the order late in the day (about 3:00 pm). I asked if they would ship the following day and he assured me they would. Checked email just before supper and had an email from etrailer that our order had shipped same day. Had the rollers in two days. Excellent service. Will use them again. Ron M

Ordering was easy. They shipped right away. Tracked them all the way to my door.

YR45Y Seems to be a good quality product material wise. The bolt shaft hole was off centered 5/16" (I measured) which may cause flatspotting from the boat bow over time if it doesn't roll true when impacted. I also ordered the beveled end cap rollers as well that seem just fine. Fully assembled on the trailer you can see the offset in alignment in the center roller vs. The endcaps.

Great service, Part delivered on time. Easy installation. Roller worked perfectly -- much better than the one I had before.

This works great. I bought the end caps and the whole thing gives me a much larger target to hit when pulling my sailboat onto the trailer. https://photos.app.goo.gl/WBWYuiqaGbWSxdjc2

I was tired of the black smudges the original rollers were putting on the bow of my white-hulled boat. Quality product at a fair price with fast shipping.

This is an outstanding roller. Just had to get that out right away. My trailer had the factory black rubber rollers that had totally worn out and were about to fall off. I wanted something, if possible, that was more dense and much tougher than the rubber rollers. I have an aluminum V bottom boat and the aluminum V is very tough on the rollers. I came across this on eTrailer and the price was just a fraction of what the local marine supply wanted for trailer parts. Local markup is definitely quite shocking when you see eTrailer's prices! Bottom line, this is an outstanding roller. It's very tough, the v shape helps center my boat so it rides more level, and it just looks good too. I couldn't be more happy and will not go anywhere else for the parts I need.

Much better than the black rubber roller I originally had which would leave marks on the nose of my boat. I intend to replace all the rollers on my trailer with the ones made of this non-marking material - I'm so tired of scrubbing black tread marks off the hull.

Good product-good description online. The new product replaced an old damaged boat part. Easy to order-shipped timely and easy to track the new product from initial order to delivery. I always enjoy dealing with etrailer on ordering products--really helps to have such good support services from etrailer. Thanks

Arrived in good condition. Won't mount them till I rehab the trailer next month.



- YR450Y
by:

measurement was from cap to cap and not the width of the roller. Therefore it was a little undersized but worked. Also , the rod on which the roller rotated was to short for my application due to misunderstanding on the width of the roller

Worked well for my application
