Bolster-and-swivel-bracket assemblies are typically mounted upright on a boat trailer's crossmembers. They allow a mounted bunk board, which runs from the front of the trailer to the back, to tilt to accommodate and support boat hulls of different sizes. On kayak trailers, these brackets are mounted to the trailer's frame and support bunk boards that run across the trailer.


Galvanized Steel

Steel parts are galvanized by being hot-dipped in zinc after they have been stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

Purchased about a year ago. They seem to be good quality. First set I ever bought and installed, but they are as thick as the 25 year old set I was replacing.
The boat is a 17' (8'wide) aluminum ust for an idea of the weight they are supporting.

Very happy with the purchase and I would buy them again.



by:

New bunk risers are in as is the new bunk and carpet. The reminder here is to check the bolts securing the bunks. The bunks came loose out at the Colorado river north of Yuma so had to jimmy rig the boat to the trailer on the way home to San Diego. Oh, and it was well over 100 degrees on the way home. No bueno! Everything good to go now.

Still going strong!



by:

Bought a used trailer that did not match my boat's hull. Ordered this hardware and new 6' bunks, cut off original "fixed" mounts and bunks and installed these adjustable ones. Carefully lifting a 4500# boat and working under it and the trailer and other than some parts hard to reach, job went as planned.
I am happy with the results.
I have always been happy with all my experiences with etrailer.
Thx

Product worked as expected and could not be happier.



by:

They have worked well for my application. I added a center toon to my boat. Needed a good way to support it on the trailer.

It works as it should. I bought a different trailer and it transfered to it like it was made for it.



by:

Three of the four brackets work great. One continues to slide down which allows the boat to rest on the fender. I've retorqued the bolts 3x and it still slides. down. Otherwise, great.



by:

Turned a driftboat trailer into a driftboat/raft/pontoon boat trailer in less than 30 minutes! easy to take off and on and no welding required.



by:

Bought several parts from eTrailer to complete this restoration and transformation of a 1958 trailer to suit my needs today. Couldn't have done it in only 4 days without the help from this great company with quality products!



by:

I like your products and have built a few interesting trailers from them. This one is for an inflatable catamaran from Dux Boats, and I have the whole boat resting in bunks such that the pontoons are suspended and do not touch anything. I built another one which allows you to carry a hobie 16 and a laser on the same trailer, and independently take them off.

Keep up the good work!

I was originally looking for material, glue and staples to re upholster the bunks on my boat trailer. I found new bunks complete and ready to go on your web site. I came to my senses and bought them. To make the job easier and nicer I also bought new bolster swivel brackets. It was much easier to set the new bunks next to the old
ones and mount the new hardware. You have two great products, I would highly recommend both.



by:

I had been looking for these locally and hadn't been able to find them, so i was very happy to find a complete set at such a good price! And they arrived at the early side of on time and they are very well made and exactly what I needed. I will be using etrailer again in the future, Thanks again and Good Job!

The bunk brackets I bought are working out great! In hind sight I do wish I had bought the U bolt set for them at the same time but otherwise theyve been a good purchase!



by:

Everything came in as advertised. Purchased CE Smith bolsters, u-brackets, lag screws and carpet. Added two bunk boards to my Lowe trailer (Karavan). Only had two boards and I wanted extra to support the weight of the boat. Everything assembled easily. My boat loads easier and trailers better. Plus I have the piece of mind of having 4 boards vs 2.



by:

Strong, heavily plated and simply designed bracket. Final adjustments were made with a two pound hammer to cant them a little. They did not bend during the process, good hard steel. No disappointments here.

Walt R.

No rust and no fatigue cracks. These brackets are industrial strength, not cheap junk.



by:

Used these on a trailer I was setting up for a deck boat. Worked pretty well. The "L" brackets on top could be a bit stronger. They bent a bit putting the boat on the trailer. Since I had extra, my solution was to weld 2 back to back. I would buy again.



by:

Haven't installed the items yet, but they seem of good quality & are exactly what I need & what I expected. Shipping was quite fast & communication excellent! Should the need arise, I'll do business with etrailer again.

No problems encountered in a years time



by:

Great selection. Fast shipping. Made my trailer conversion from rollers to bunks. etailer.com made it fast and simple. Just measure up you needs, go on-line and you're set. Three days later you have all the parts you needed.



by:

Good sturdy bracket, easy to install.

Works just fine, hasnt deteriorated.



by:

Good product-basic bunk bracket. Bought the extra length ones as i wasn't sure how high i needed to put the bunks to get our jetski up high enough on a trailer i rebuilt. Look to be good quality.



by:

our roller supports we purchased for the boat trailer work great. If we need any thing else for the trailer we will be sure to let you know. If anyone ask... we will tell them to look you up....



by:

Easy to pick out what I wanted,
Got
here quick. I can't complain
The tracking system could be better though



by:

They fit the roller bunks I installed and the boat now loads easier.



by:

The parts came quickly, all well packed. The coating on them seems very good. Love the way the nuts and washers are packaged and ty wrapped to the u bolts. They should work out well.



by:

Nice and strong . They function perfect to hold my two stand up Jetski's on my trailer.



by:

The order arrived later than I expected. When choosing what I thought was overnight delivery which prevented me from getting the trailer back to the customer on time. However the product was just what I expected and the trailer is back in use.



by:

Works well to hold trailer bunks



by:

Fast delivery and good product! I plan to change a roller trailer to a bunk trailer.

  • Centering Boat On Trailer With Wobble Rollers
    The keel roller will help to center your boat as the wobble rollers you have allow the boat to sit slightly to one side or the other. We do offer the CE Smith Keel Roller # CE29505 which has a self centering design to help guide your boat to the center of the trailer. It is also a non-marring PVC construction which is more durable than the rubber rollers you have. We also have the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR84FR which is designed for power boats from...

Since you are installing a Bolster-and-swivel-bracket assembly part # CE10001G-4 and need a 4-1/8 inch width by 3-1/2 or 4-inch length U-bolt, we currently don't offer a close match. I would recommend going to a local hardware store to locate a U-bolt with the dimensions you need. I would go with a stainless steel u-bolt because it is corrosion resistant and ideal for marine applications. For the lighting and wiring on your 1984 Shoreline boat trailer,...

  • Bolster Brackets for Bunks on a Boat Trailer
    Considering that there will be a bunk of some kind mounting on top of the brackets once installed the 11 inch overall height of the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets # CE10001G-4 should work just fine for you. If you determine the 11 inches is not enough we do have a set of four 13 inch brackets, # CE10002G-4. The slotted holes on these brackets will allow for some adjustability.

    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, part # CE10001G-4, do not hold the weight of the watercraft themselves. The U-bolts that attach the brackets to the trailer frame are what support the weight of the watercraft.

With 2 U-bolts per bolster-and-swivel bracket assembly, and 12 total holding the bunks for your boat, you will not have a problem as long as your boat is not exceeding the capacity of your boat trailer. You can certainly add a keel support if you would like additional support for your boat, but it will not...

    It's not an exact science but typically you want the bunk boards on a trailer to extend all the way to the rear of the boat. It wouldn't hurt to have them go a bit beyond this too to ensure proper support during travel. Since the front of the boat should be supported by the bow stop you usually see bunk boards that measure about half the length of the boat itself.
