Bearing Buddy installed diagram

Bearing Buddy Operation

Replace your existing grease cap with a Bearing Buddy to ensure a safe, easy way to monitor and control the level of grease in your axle hub. To adjust the amount of grease in the hub, use a grease gun to add more through the appropriate fitting. Adding grease moves the Bearing Buddy spring-loaded piston outward 1/8".

The O-ring inside the barrel of the Bearing Buddy maintains a seal from the outside. The interior of the Bearing Buddy is pressurized, preventing water from entering the barrel and diluting the grease.

An automatic pressure-relief feature is built into the Bearing Buddy. When the device is full, grease will seep around the edges of the piston and into the barrel. This prevents overfilling that can damage the inner seal.

You can manually check the grease level in your Bearing Buddy by pressing on the edge of the piston. If you can rock or move the piston, the hub is properly filled.

I have been nothing but impressed by how well organized and great etrailer has taken care of me. The price was great for my item, I was informed of every step and the items came as scheduled. They also fit and worked perfectly. Great build quality for the bearing buddy, they work well and would recommend to any one looking to improve bearing performance

I measured my utility trailer hubs to be 2.075” with digital callipers but I had no problem installing the 2.080” model Buddy Bearings set from Etrailer. I just lined them up with the hub and took a few good tries at driving them in straight with a rubber mallet. They eventually went in very tight which is just what I wanted. Thanks and great product!

  • Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors for 2.1 Inch Hub Bore Diameter
    The closet option we have available to your 2.1 hub bore measurement is with the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB2080 in Chrome or # BB2080SS in Stainless Steel (for superior corrosion resistance). These are designed to fit a hub bore diameter of 2.080 inches. Since it's so close I recommend verifying your measurement with a digital caliper like # 301-17068 to get an exact dimension. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Will Bearing Buddy Model 2080 Fit Hub with 52mm Grease Cap
    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 2080 # BB2080 referenced in your question may fit the hubs on your Venture trailer, however instead of measuring the grease cap, the best way to ensure these will be the correct fit is to measure the diameter of the hub bore. I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to get the most accurate measurement possible. These Bearing Buddies are designed for 2.080 inch hub bores. If this is the measurement you get on your existing hubs,...

  • Recommended Trailer Axle Bearing Dust Cap Compatible with 2.10 Inch Hub
    That is not a typical grease cap/dust cover size, however we do have the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB2080 which measure 2.08 inches. These caps actually make maintaining the bearings much easier and more convenient as well. I've attached a couple videos to assist. The precise measurement using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 or # 301-17068 is best.

  • What Bearing Buddys Are Needed for a 2-1/16 Inch Hub Bore
    The correct Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors are going to be part # BB2080 for a 2.080" hub bore or part # BB2047 for a 2.047" hub bore. Therefore, you need to measure your hub more opening more precisely (to the thousandth of an inch) in order to determine which is the correct set of Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors. The above measurement should be taken with a digital caliper.

  • Can Bearing Buddies Be Used on Travel Trailers
    Although primarily designed for use in marine applications, using Bearing Buddies on your travel trailer would work just fine for you, and would provide the benefit of protecting your wheel bearings by excluding dirt and moisture. Due to the Zerk fitting, adding grease when needed will be easy, and you can check the fill level at a glance, both of which will extend the life of the bearings. Keep in mind that Ez-Lube spindles are not compatible with Bearing Buddies. You will want...

  • Bearing Buddy Availability for Hub Bore of 2.080
    I wish we had a bearing buddy that would fit the hub you have, but none of the ones we carry will fit a hub with an inside bore of 2.125 (2-1/8 inches). You might try measuring the hub bore again with a digital or dial caliper to see if maybe you have a 2.080 hub bore. If that is the case you could use the # BB2080.

  • How to Pick Out Bearing Buddies for a Trailer
    In order to pick out the correct bearing buddy you will need know the pilot hole of your hub. To do this, remove the wheel and tire and remove the grease cap from the center of the hub. Usually it is a metal cap that is just lightly hammered into place. Use a screwdriver to pry off the cap. Clean the grease off and measure the opening. I have included a video demonstrating the Bearing Buddy. The Bearing Buddies # BB2080 that you referenced are for hubs with a 2.080 inch hub bore. When...

  • Can Bearing Buddies be Used on a Travel Trailer
    Bearing Buddies are intended for marine use but they can be used on a travel trailer. They'll help keep dirt and moisture out. You'll also gain the benefit of being able to grease the bearings using the Bearing Buddies because of the zerk fitting.

  • Bearing Buddy Recommendation for a Hub Bore of 2.402 inches
    For a Bearing Buddy designed to fit your 2.402 pilot hole on your hub you would want the # BB2441 or the stainless version part # BB2441SS. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. Pricing is below at the links.

  • Bearing Buddy Sizes Compatible for Hub 2 Inch Inner Diameter
    There are a couple of sizes close to your 2 inch diameter. If you measured with a digital caliper that goes to the thousandths like # 301-17068 then that will be much easier to determine the fit. We have the 2.047 inch # BB2047 in chrome plated or # BB2047SS in stainless steel. We also have the 2.080 inch # BB2080 in chrome of # BB2080SS in stainless steel.

  • Bearing Buddies that Measure 2-1/8 Inches in Outer Diameter
    When selecting bearing protectors the measurement needs to be as accurate as possible so you will need to use dial calipers. We have a digital set we use here for precise measurements. Since 2.24 is too large and 1.98 is too small the size in the middle is 2.08 like # BB2080. For replacement bras you would use # BB19B.

  • Replacement Grease Caps for a Trailer Hub with 2-1/16 Inch Hub Bore
    Instead of measuring the grease cap, measure the hub bore where the grease cap fits. You will need the most accurate measurement as possible so use dial calipers. You may find that you have a 2.047 inch bore so you could use bearing protectors like # BB2047SS. Or it could slightly larger, 2.080 like # BB2080. These are the 2 most likely sizes if you are coming up with 2-1/16 inches but measuring the hub bore with dial calipers would be the way to go.

  • Bearing Buddy Recommendation that is the Next Size Smaller than the # BB2240
    The next smaller size Bearing Buddy from the Bearing Buddy part # BB2240 that you referenced would be the Bearing Buddy # BB2080. I attached a link to a page that has all of the Bearing Buddies we offer.

  • How to Measure a Hub Bore Diameter to Determine What Size Bearing Buddies Fit a Trailer Hub

    All of our bearing kits, like the part # BK2-100 that was referenced, only include the inner/outer bearings, grease seal, and cotter pin/washer but I can help you get the other parts that you are needing as well. For 10" x 2-1/4" brakes we have the Redline Hydraulic Brake Shoe/Lining # BP04-120 which comes in a set for 1 wheel. Then for a grease cap if you could let me know what your hub bore measures (to the 3rd decimal like 1.234) I can help you select the correct size cap from...

  • Is There a Bearing Protector for a 2.14 Inner Diameter Hub Bore
