How Do CE Smith Heavy Duty, Vertical Bunk Brackets CE26233-34GA Get Installed?


How are the 85-degree/95-degree brackets placed on the angled cross member? Does the 95-degree bracket get installed on the inside position e.g. lower on the angled crossmember, and the 85-degree bracket get installed on the outside position e.g. higher on the angled crossmember, or visa versa?


Expert Reply:

You are correct. You will want to mount the longer 95 degree bracket of the CE Smith Heavy Duty, Vertical Bunk Brackets - 85 and 95 Degree Set # CE26233-34GA on the lower section of the angled crossmember on your boat trailer, and the 85 degree bracket on the higher section of the crossmember.

In addition you will need 1/2" diameter U-bolts to secure the brackets to the crossmember. If your crossmember is 3" x 3" then I recommend the CE Smith U-Bolts - Galvanized - 3-13/16" Long x 3-1/16" Wide x 1/2" Diameter - Qty 4 # CE15283GA-4.

If your crossmember is a different size then just let me know.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
