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.

The stuff I bought is not for a trailer its for the seaside end of a 100 foot dinghy pull line in a 10 foot tide area. I'll let you know how it works. Can't use a conventional pulley because is gets jammed up with sea weed.

- YR5244-105EC
by:

Unlike item YR800Y, this roller has an ID of 5/8" through the entire roller, not just the nylon bushings. For this reason, the roller will not collapse under heavy load. This is a much more robust design. Just wish it was made in "no-mark" mat'l.

Ask the Experts about this Yates Rubber Boat Trailer Parts

  • Is there a 6 Inch Long Keel Roller for a 1971 Boat Trailer
    The best option is to use # YR5244-105EC which is 5-1/2 inches long so it will only be off by 1/4 inch on each side on a bracket with a 6 inch span. If you need a compatible shaft and pal nuts use # CE10722A. It has the 5/8 inch diameter shaft required for the roller.
    view full answer...
  • Will the Roller Shaft Part # CE10722A Fit the Yates Keel Roller Part # YR5244-105EC
    Yes, the Roller Shaft with Pal Nuts part # CE10722A is a fit for the Yates Keel Roller part # YR5244-105EC. If you are looking to replace the roller shaft on your existing Yates roller you would need to measure from the end of each white bushing. I have attached a list of all our roller shafts for you as well.

  • Keel Rollers for a 1991 Caulkins Boat Trailer that Will Not Corrode from the Inside
    A keel roller such as # YR5213-5 would work well for you since it does not have a metal sleeve inside. For the best corrosion resistance you would use stainless steel shafts to hold the rollers to their brackets. That can get expensive. We currently offer a zinc-plated steel shaft for this roller, # CE10722A, which is going to be in between regular steel and stainless as far as corrosion resistance. We also have roller # YR5244-105EC which uses nylon bushings instead of a steel sleeve....

  • Trailer Roller Bunks and Keel Roller Recommendations for a River Raft
    It sounds like you are looking for roller bunks such as # DL21741. These are 5 foot long sections (2 in a package) and are the longest we have available. Each section has 12 sets of rollers. They can be mounted directly to a wooden bunk or to the frame by using bracket kit # DL21742. If you are looking for a keel roller we have a 5-1/2 inch model # YR5244-105EC but no 6 inch. The next size up is 8 inches. With it you can use shaft # CE10722A with brackets # CE32004G or # CE10301G.

  • Parts Needed To Add 12" Self Centering Keel Roller On Boat Trailer
    You could use the CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - Self Centering - PVC - 12" - 5/8" Shaft - Amber but you would need to have new brackets welded on to your 2015 EZ loader boat trailer, or you could drill new holes so you can bolt on the CE Smith Universal-Fit Split Panel Brackets for Boat Trailers # CE10500G. This mounting slots on this bracket should only be roughly 11" apart so you will not be able to reuse your existing holes. You would also need a new, longer roller shaft #...
