I bought these dust caps, the matching rubber ends, along with the etrailer driver tool. (290-991 for the size caps I have.) I was having issues with the Kodiak disc brake/Hub combo opening being a tad smaller and bent a couple of caps putting on with a dead blow rubber mallet. So ordered some new caps and the etrailer driver tool. Having the driver tool to keep these going straight and from warping (It fits pretty snug around the cap.) and really helped out. I also put a little grease around the edge of the rubber seals to help ward off water. What I like about e-trailer is they have about everything you need for trailers at one place. Their folks are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful when you call.

I tried this product for an aviation application. I own a DHC-2 Beaver aircraft that has a tail wheel axle that is 1.125 inch ID. I wanted an end cap that was removable because the axle tube is used to steer the aircraft with a hand held bar during some ground movement. So far the rubber cap seems to work. It has remained on during several flights. It is easy to remove and insert. The only problem may occur if the cap mounting area of the axle become oily or greasy which may allow the cap to slip off. It seems to need a friction fit to stay on.


Comments
Same as described above.

These grease caps had only light cracking after one year of service. Most caps that I have used in the past would be cracked and leaking after one season of boating, some wouldn’t even make a full season and would require a replacement. Rubber rot seems to be a serious issue with all of these plugs, but these held up the best of any I’ve used. After greasing the bearings I always replace the caps with new fresh caps yearly, the cost is minimal compared to the damage that may happen if not properly cared for.

These are the caps that get removed to pump grease into an Ultra-lube hub. Perfect fit on my trailer with AL-KO 8490 axles and 10x2.25 brakes. Very nice price for a product that can be hard to find locally. I can't prove it, but my research suggests these cross reference to: + 85-10 + AL KO #568067 + Hayes #09213611 + TruRyde RG01-010 + Dexter 085-001-00

Good replacements for the ones that cracked on the trailer from the factory. In fact I gave some to my friend for his trailer also. Good replacement.

Finding the product and placing the order was super simple. Delivery was unexpectedly quick. I had my parts in hand within 2 days of placing my order. I've purchased from etrailer before and will most certainly again in the future.

The product works fine to seal in the grease and provide a good prevention for dirt and moisture to penetrate the bearing.

I used these to replace old rotten ones. Truly I felt the fit was a little loose. They were used on a boat trailer and I’m not sure if they’d be water tight. I should have pulled them off after being submerged to check but I haven’t. I’ll put that on the “to do” list.

Good quick fix, can't find them in the local parts store. ships fast, the only thing I don't like is that they only last about a year so I buy extras so I always have some on hand when needed. Of course I'll buy them again and do recommend them. Don't have any photos at this time, maybe next time.

This is the second time I have ordered items from etrailer and am extremely pleased with the way sales staff assisted me then and now. The sales staff member assisting me with the order of grease cap plugs was Mariah A. She was great. I received my order as ordered on November 2nd,2020 and did the simple install right away on my ATV trailer. I will definitely do business with etrailer again. Thanks again Mariah A.

I cannot honestly give these a good rating as I cleaned up my old ones and will be putting them back into service. While the rubber on these is soft and pliable compared to the original equipment, the tolerances are all wrong to be able to get a snug seal. The groove in the seal that fits over the sheet metal cap is too wide in the first place, something like 1/16" with the metal being probably half that. Second thing is the hole is slightly larger then the center of the rubber when it is installed meaning this plug does not make a tight seal, my old stiff ones make a tighter seal and will be reused. Also, the part of the rubber plug in the inside has a much smaller lip the catch the metal then the old ones which probably makes it easier to get off and put back on but also means it can fall off much easier as the tolerances are such that it moves around and does not seal tight. In my experience I cannot recommend these.

Nothing has changed, my opinion is still the same and they still sit in a parts bin unused solely to be used as backup in case of emergency.

Very good experience and nice selection. Spent the winter restoring boat trailer. etrailer had spring eye bushings, shackle bolts, u-bolts and hub seals. Then topped it off with new LED lights. couldn’t be happier. Even had to exchange some lights because I ordered wrong size, no problem.

This was an exact fit for my camper. I bent the mouth part of it slightly inward. Installed easily from there.

A perfect replacement for the battered and worn caps on my EZ Lube axles. Order dust cap driver p/n 290-991 for easy installation and removal during service.


Comments
Thanks for taking the time to follow up with me. Ive only put a few hundred miles of use on the trailer but everything is working great. Ive actually recommended etrailer to my father, a friend of mine and anyone at work who would listen made easier by the fact that I had everything I ordered shipped to my job instead of home. Barring an emergency situation that requires an immediate solution you have my business in the future.

I use these caps on my boat trailer which is used only in salt water. Even with thorough rinsing after every use, the zinc plating on cap rusts out and the rubber plug cap gets dry rotted from sun exposure in less than a year. Still works OK if you smear a coat of grease all over the outside of the cap and the rubber plug.



- RG04-040
by: Bob Maison11/03/2013

Grease Cap fit perfect and the rubber plug fits nice and tight. No water or dirt is getting inside. I highly recommend you purchase the Dust Cap Driver Tool as I did. They fit tight and the tool puts equal pressure all the way around. Your going to flatten the edge out if you don't use this tool for sure. Do it right the first time.

The grease cups appear to be high quality parts. These grease cups are exactly what I needed to finish my project. I believe installation will be straight forward and will give me an opening to grease the zerk on the spindle end. These parts were not available at [hardware store] or my local auto parts store. etrailer once again had the part I needed, thanks etrailer!

I was more than satisfied with my first experience with etrailer. The product was reasonably priced and when received was of excellent quality. The shipping of my product was received well within the expected time. The part was just what I needed for my Harley Trailer! I will certainly recommend etrailer to anyone needing their products and will also order from them the next time I need any products they carry!

These caps are great. I did have to file down the outside edge just a bit in order to get them on, but that is likely due to the hubs being 30 years old. Also I'd rather have them be a bit too tight so they stay on, rather than loose so they fall off. I also got the cap removal tool which really makes installation and removal much easier, and limits damage caused by having to pry them off and pound them on.


Comments
They are still working great a year later. They have stAyed on, snd the removal tool is invaluable for servicing trailer bearings

It was time to repack the bearings on my 12 foot utility trailer and I needed a dust cap with simple / clean access to the grease fittings. The RG04-040 was the perfect solution, easy to install and looks great too!

Really phoning it in with this one. Thin. Does not fit Dexter hubs very well (after 200 miles, I lost two, a third was starting to go with only one remaining firmly in place). My advice is invest in the Dexter brand caps if you have Dexter axles. I'll keep these in a box for emergency replacements only.

This is the first product bought from etrailer.com that has given me an issue. Since there are so many sizes and variations of these covers I was very careful to choose the ones listed for my specific model of Jayco trailer. Unfortunately, they could not be installed out of the box. I'm an experienced mechanical engineer and pretty good with tools so I feel confident saying these were slightly too large. My solution was to use a tin snips and make a cut on each side to allow for a slight compression during insertion. With that modification the covers installed easily, but with plenty of friction to stay in place.


Comments
The caps are meant to fit a 1.98 inch hub bore. They are slightly over sized so that they will compress slightly in order for a tight fit.

I needed replacements as I lost one dustcap and plug the last time I towed the trailer for 200 miles. Hopefully replacing the dustcaps will fix that issue. Price was fine, delivery took a while, but that was a postal issue. The order was processed quickly and I could track the parcel.

I bought my 12X6 enclosed trailer new back in 2006 and this product was installed on the wheels. In 2018, the wheel bearings failed on one wheel so I replaced the bearings on both wheels at the same time. I also replaced the bearing caps with the same type because I felt that they lasted a long time and must be a quality product. They have been installed a year now and continue to do their job well. I am very happy with this etrailer product.

These caps were a nice replacement for my old dingy caps with missing rubber. I had to bend the steel lip inward a bit with flat wrench jaws to get it started, then drove it in with a rubber mallet. Fits good!
