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.

Bearing buddy is still on the trailer and the wheel is still turning.


Great product and service. Questions answer very quickly. Able to get item that fit right on my trailer
and delivered on time.


Products are all very high quality and easy to install


Didn’t fit as advertised.

Hey Allen, can you tell me the hub bore you are trying to fit? This unit fits 2.441 hub bore. Make sure you measure with a micrometer.
-- Etrailer Expert David B - 08/30/2022


These also replace turbo lube 48399 covers, I put them on my 2009 z520 ranger, took all of 15 minutes to change out, perfect fit, easy installation , feel much better having these vs oil bath, highly recommend. Great buy, very happy!!


These bearing buddy's are the perfect replacement for my turbo lube dust caps which they no longer make. I swapped from an oil bath to a grease lube system on my boat trailer and couldn't be happier. Thanks for your great service!


Did not fit threads on hubs. The threads on the hub were cast and poorly at that. So I never could get them to fit. Other than that I think they would have worked great.

they dont fit never used still in box
scott c - 03/17/2022


Worked perfect!!!! Wish I would've made the change to the Buddy Bearing Model BB2441T-SS years ago.


If you own a trailer, this a must have! Don't ever risk repairing burnt out bearings along side the road with traffic whizzing by at 70mph, It only happened to me once!








worked as intended. Fast shipping.


Thanks for the fast shipping

  • Are the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors BB2441SS Threaded
    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB2441SS are not threaded. These are simply pushed into place. If you need this same size but that are threaded then the part number you're looking for is # BB2441T-SS instead. Same specs and still stainless steel, just with a threaded portion for the installation.

  • Replacement Bearing Caps for a Boat Trailer with 4.4K Axles
    For a boat trailer like yours, I recommend going with a Bearing Buddy that will keep the water out. With a gross vehicle weight rating of 8026 pounds, you probably have 4.4K axles. The appropriate Bearing Buddy will be part # BB2441SS. This will fit inner hub bores with inner diameters of 2.441", so be sure to measure yours to ensure it's correct. If, by chance, your hub bore is threaded, then use the Bearing Buddy with threading, part # BB2441T-SS. I've linked to video reviews of both...

  • Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors for 2.42-2.43 Inch Hub Bore
    Yes, based on the measurements you took of your hub bore diameter the correct Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors is the part # BB2441 or # BB2441T-SS for the stainless steel model that will resist any corrosion. These are designed to fit hub bore diameters of 2.441 inches to allow for easy maintenance while also keeping dirt and water out of the hub. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • How to Determine Correct Bearing Buddy
    We may have something that will work, though to confirm the right Bearing Buddies you'll need to measure the hub bores on your trailer's hubs using your digital caliper, and match the hub bore diameter to the correct Bearing Buddies. For example, the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 2441 # BB2441 and Model 2441T-SS - Threaded (Stainless Steel) # BB2441T-SS fit a 2.441" hub bore and based on the measurements you gave these are pretty likely to fit your hub. I've added a link to...

  • How to Pick out Bearing Buddies
    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 # BB2441 that you referenced are for hubs with a 2.441 inch hub bore. I can't...

  • Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors To Replace Turbo Oil Bath Caps
    I recommend to measure the inside diameter of your hub bore to switch out the oil bath caps with threaded Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors. The closest we have to the 3.3 inches that would thread into your oil bath hub is Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 2441T-SS - Threaded - Stainless Steel part # BB2441T-SS which fit 2.441" hub bore inner diameters.

  • Can Oil Bath Hub Dust Cab Be Used with Grease Hubs
    There isn't a threaded bearing buddy that's going to fit the dimensions you have. You might just stick with the oil cap and pack the bearings with grease by hand.

  • What is the Outer Diameter and Thread Pitch of Bearing Buddies # BB2441T-SS
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Bearing Buddies # BB2441T-SS. The outer diameter of the threaded portion is 2.34 inches using digital calipers to measure. The thread pitch is harder to determine. There are approximately 9 threads per inch (only three threads on the actual product) and it is coarse threaded as opposed to fine threaded. These Bearing Buddies are designed to replace Tie Down Turbo Lube oil baths.

  • What Causes Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors Not To Thread In
    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors like part # BB2441T-SS are very easy to install as they are just a threaded fastener essentially. Therefore, if you are having issues with the threads engaging first make sure that the diameter is correct. Once this is done you will want to inspect the threads on both the hub and bearing protector to ensure none are damaged. If the size is correct and none of the threads are damaged then odds are you just need to clean the threads on the hub more to...

  • How to Remove a Threaded Bearing Buddy That is Stuck
    The vast majority of oil bath style hubs will indeed be threaded. These are also notorious for getting pretty stuck after a while. What you will need to do is spray some WD-40 all the way around it after being loosened as much as you can. Let that sit and then tighten, and back off. This may need to be done a few times to break up whatever it is that it is getting hung up on.

  • Is It Normal For Grease To Push Past The O-Ring On The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors?
    It is normal for grease to expand and can push out through the O-ring on the Bearing Buddy # BB2441T-SS. When you drive with the trailer, heat is created on the bearings as well as transferred into the hub from the brakes. As the parts heat up the steel and grease will expand. If your hub is packed full of grease it has to have somewhere to go so it pushes itself out through the O-ring.

  • Recommended Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors for Montana Travel Trailer
    To determine which Bearing Buddies you'll need, use a digital caliper to measure the inside diameter of the hub bore, not the outside diameter of the grease cap. Given the 2.443 inch dimension you provided, it's extremely likely that you'd need the model 2441 Bearing Buddy which measures 2.441 inches in diameter. They're available in chrome as part # BB2441 or stainless as part # BB2441SS. If your hub bores are threaded, use part # BB2441T-SS. I'd still recommend you measure for confirmation.

  • Recommended Solution to Protect Bearings From Water on Boat Trailer
    The Kodiak # XLPROLUBE2440 is designed to replace the body and cap for a Kodiak XL ProLube oil bath hub. Since you are using grease and have a Dexter axle, it sounds like you have an EZ Lube axle with a zerk fitting for adding grease and a grease cap plug on the end. Assuming that is the case, you do not want to use the # XLPROLUBE2440. Instead, I recommend adding Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors like the # BB2441SS or the threaded # BB2441T-SS. These are specifically designed for marine...

  • How to Pick Out Threaded Bearing Buddy for Replacing Oil Bath Cap
    I wasn't able to find any reference to your oil cap or dimensions so what you'll need to do is measure the diameter of your cap so that we can determine if there's a threaded Bearing Buddy that would work. For example, we have the part # BB2080T-SS for if your hub bore is 2.08 inch in diameter, part # BB1980T-SS for 1.98 inch, or part # BB2441T-SS for a bore of 2.441 inch.

  • Bearing Buddy Recommendation for Threaded Hub Bore
    Bearing Buddy does have options for thread hubs like what are seen on oil bath setups. We only have three options though: # BB1980T-SS for a 1.980 inch diameter # BB2441T-SS for a 2.441 inch diameter # BB2080T-SS for a 2.080 inch diameter

  • Available Replacement Grease Seals and Grease Caps
    The best way to match up a new grease seal is to find the existing seal's part number and cross reference to a currently-available compatible part. When part numbers are not available measurements are needed, so thank you for those. Usually a grease seal's outer diameter should be only a few thousandths of an inch larger than the hub bore. For a grease seal to fit the 2.545-inch diameter of your hub's rear bore you would want one with a diameter in the range of 2.550-inches. We do have...

  • Bearing Buddy to Replace Tie Downs Turbo Lube Oil Bath 48394 Cap?
    Yes, Bearing Buddy # BB2441T-SS replaces Tie Down's Turbo Lube oil baths. I ran out to the warehouse and double checked that the outer dimension of the threaded portion matches the 2.33" of your Turbo Lube 48394 cap. You will want to remove the oil from the hub using shop towels and a mild detergent. Let them dry completely before packing them. Bearing Buddy also recommends using a High Performance Silicone Gasket Maker like Loctite's # LT37467 for the installation.

  • What Bearing Protectors Fit My Mastercraft Boat Trailer?
    While I unfortunately could not find any specs on your Mastercraft trailer with serial numbers SA-05-MS210 and B9-000045, there is a definitive way you can measure your trailer to get the correct bearing protector size you need. In order to determine your size, you need to confirm the diameter of your hub's bore opening. This size determines what bearing protectors you need. For instance, if you find that your bore is 2.441" in diameter, you would need the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors...

  • How to Convert Oil Bath Trailer Hubs to Grease Hubs
    Actually all you really have to do is remove the oil from the hub and then pack the hubs with grease and then get the correct bearing buddy to match the threaded hub bore. You will need to measure the inner diameter of where the old grease cap installed on your hub to pick out the correct bearing buddy. If that measurement is 1.98 then you would wan the # BB1980T-SS, if it's 2.080 inches and has 12 threads per inch then you'd need part # BB2080T-SS, if it's 2.44 inches you'd want the part...

  • Is there a Trailer oil Bath Hub Oil Cap for a Dexter 6,000 Pound Axle
    The 21-36 oil cap, # RG04-270, fits 9K (after 10/1989) and 10K GD (2 piece drum), and 10K to 15K Dexter axles. The 21-35, # RG04-230, fits 6K to 8K ( and 9K before 10/1989) Dexter axles. It would be too large with its 2-7/8 inch thread diameter. All of these oil caps are for oil bath hubs. If you are replacing a dust cap, you probably have regular hubs.
