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.

I got these bolsters to convert an old jet ski trailer frame to carry my large fishing kayak. They worked great. CE Smith is a great brand name for trailer parts. eTrailer shipped quickly although USPS tracking sure wasn’t up to par. eTrailer is dependable and has great support with videos and info.



by:

So far so good. The brackets are working fine so far. Haven't put the trailer on the road yet, but the boat requires bunkers to have a curve or bow in them. The middle brackets stand the torsion as well as the weight of the boat. Easy to install as well.

Still working great. Stays put, no slipping



by:

I took a fishing trip to Quebec Canada and had to travel 115 kilometers on a dirt rd resulting 5 of my original bunk brackets cracking. The lodge personnel welded them so we could get home. Replaced them with your brackets that are a lot stronger and easy to install. Looking forward to next trip



by:

First off, I want to say that the products that I ordered from etrailer.com were of high quality and were easy to install, and lets not forget about the fast shipping and my favorite - the personal touch added to the email communications where each one is signed by a human (rather than something generic).

My project itself entailed replacing the two (original) vertical mount 4' bunks on my boat trailer (see the attached pictures). These were set-up to hold a 15' sailboat. I recently purchased a 12' (plastic) jon boat, and I felt that the jon boat needed better support on the trailer so that it didn't warp or dent.

After doing a lot of research, I decided to go with two horizontal mount 6' bunks. They were pre-finished at a cost less than if I were to purchase the individual components (wood, glue, carpet, staples, etc.) and do the assembly work myself. Attaching the hardware and mounting them to the trailer was a snap - see the attached pictures for the finished setup.



by:

Good brackets, well built, thick metal with excellent galvanized coating on them. A quality product and installation is straight forward. Thumbs up!



by:

Parts worked great, made rebuilding my boat trailer a breeze.



by:

I took my existing utility trailer that I bought at the local supply store and converted it to a boat trailer for my new RIB for a couple hundred dollars. It saved me well over a thousand dollars and works great.



by:

These are actually for wood bunks, not the roller bunks which I bought. Had to drill another centered hole in top. Not hard though.



by:

I'm not a trailer person but I found "etrailer's" website informative enough to know what I needed. I also had the benefit of an etrailer staff member who knew his products and thus able to make sure I bought the correct pieces. The plus was when the items arrived much sooner than the shipping time they quoted. I have not yet installed the items but hope to do it this week. Excellent source to buy quality trailer parts.

Fine - everything still in one piece



by:

Everything is great (5-star). However, I must return the roller bracket for a refund, as the mounting holes do not match up with my trailer.



by:

Great parts and service as usual. Thanks Lori !
Parts arrived a day early and I got it done in short order. The boat is much happier on its new support and bunk parts...



by:

Great product, super fast delivery!!!



by:

These brackets worked perfectly to help me convert my boat trailer to a roller bed system allowing for much easier launching of my boat.

I couldn’t be any happier about these roller tracks.



by:

Photo of items in use on boat trailer.



by:

In my opinion The holes in the brackets that attach to the bunk boards are, when bracket is centered on the boards, approximately 3/8” from the edge of the board. Whether lag screw or bolting leaves very little room for strength.
Further, there was no bolts or lag screws provided.
Otherwise a nice product.



by:

I'm gathering parts for a complete boat trailer redo. Most of my parts are coming from etrailer.com. They have what I need, the price is right, the site is easy to shop and they ship promptly. Oh, and as I recently found out, customer service is quick to straighten things out when something is not right.

Sorry to respond so late. Good service, good product. Thanks



by:

Prompt delivery, easy installation, worked out great. Thank you.



by:

I installed them on my boat trailer about a year ago and they are still looking good. I use the trailer mostly in saltwater so I’m happy that they are holding up well.



by:

The swivel brackets were exactly as described, and etrailer upgraded my shipping for free. I had them in 4 business days instead of the 5-7 I paid for.
One suggestion for etrailer for these particular items:
You should include 2 sets of bolt, nut and washer for each of the bracket kits, as well as a washer for the nut and bolt that was included for the swivel piece. It is a bit annoying to have to run to the hardware store for a bag of hardware to mount this on my trailer.
I also screwed the brackets on to the bunk boards with lag bolts, but those are a personal preference.



by:

Could use a bit more deburring; has a good bit of slag projections on the part. Seems sturdy, though.



by:

Bunk brackets mated perfectly to the trailer frame, wide range of adjustments both height wise and angle of the bunks.



by:

this has happened again. I can't rate a product that should last years the minute it gets in my hand. The pieces LOOK good. The shipping was timely and the price was fair none of which tells me or you how good the product IS. Get back after two years of dunking in fresh and salt water and I'll give an honest review.

Bill

so far so good. After a year of dunking in fresh and salt water there is no sign of rust and no cracks in the material. Im pleased and a little surprised they held up so far given the poor quality of a lot of galvanized pieces nowadays. If they hold up this good after two years they have my wholehearted endorsement, for what thats worth.



by:

The Bolster Brackets are exactly what I ordered. However, they are galvanized products and come w/zinc plated hardware. This creates a situation where the hardware will rust (& freeze) far before the brackets do as any boater would understand. This renders adjustments to your trailer and/or the replacement of parts a difficult task. Solution: offer the brackets w/galvanized hardware or at least offer the option in something other than "small print."



by:

Great mounts ... heavy duty ... Worth the money ??

  • Bunk Bracket Recommendation for Converting Roller Bunk Trailer to Wood Bunk
    You'd really need to base it off the hull design of the boat you plan to tow. I'd use swivel bunk brackets like the part # CE10000G-4 to mount the boards as these allow you to angle the boards to match the shape of your boat's hull. I attached a picture that shows how they typically install on a similar trailer.

  • Do Roller Bunk Brackets Have a Listed Weight Capacity
    Roller bunk brackets like the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10000G-4 do not have listed capacities. I spoke to my contact at CE Smith and he informed that that as long as you are under the capacity for your trailer and the roller bunks that are being attached to the brackets the brackets will be fine.

  • Is the Mounting Bracket of the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets Bent at 90 Degrees
    The mounting bracket of the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets, # CE10000G-4, are bent at a 90 degree angle. The photo of the 4 brackets can be somewhat deceiving, but I grabbed one from our warehouse and made a short video for you so you can see the angle better.

  • How Much Weight Can the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies Hold
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies part # CE10000G-4 do not have a specified weight capacity as it can vary by the strength of the u-bolts used in conjunctions with these brackets as well as how many brackets are used per board. I know this is frustrating to not have a specific weight capacity but unfortunately the manufacturer just does not provide this. I know we have called and asked several times in the past. However, with that being said the brackets are more or less...

  • Can CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Brackets be Modified for Mounting Vertical Bunk Boards
    Thank you for the kind words! I do not think there will be enough of the L bracket to properly support the boards because of the bolt head. You might be able to use alternate, lower profile hardware though obtained from a local auto parts store. The bracket is only 1-3/8 inches wide with the mounting holes centered putting them approximately 11/16 inches in from the edge on center. Subtract how far the bolt head sticks out and you are left with maybe 3/8 of an inch. Seems too close for...

  • Can the CE Smith Assemblies # CE10000G-4 be Submerged for Long Periods of Time
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 do have a galvanized finish for superior rust resistance but they are meant to be installed on boat trailers and not really meant to stay submerged for extended periods of time. Although the finish will be better than a steel bracket without the finish, I am not sure how long they would resist rust like that. I am not quite sure how your whole lift system works I don't know if the 9" height is long enough for your application....

  • Does CE Smith Bolster Assembly for Boat Trailers, part # CE10000G-4 have Weight Capacity
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, part # CE10000G-4, do not bear the weight of the boat. The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat more than anything so these do not have a stated weight capacity. Your 4,000 lb boat would not be an issue for these brackets at all.

  • Do CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies Have an Angle
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 can be rotated to the side to accommodate different hull designs but they aren't meant to be tilted towards the front or back of the trailer. The first photo, which I believe you're referring to, looks like they are angled because of their orientation and the hardware still being a little loose. If you check out the linked review video you'll see what I mean.

    Typically yo'll use brackets like part # CE10000G-4 with U-Bolts like part # CE15283GA-4 and then a combination of bunk boards like the 3' long # CE27800, but since we don't have specs on what came with your 1997 Esco Boat Trailer you'll need to take some measurements of your trailer frame, your current hardware, and bunk boards to choose the correct replacement parts.

  • Bunk Board Bracket Recommendation For Boat Trailer
    I recommend the CE Smith Bolster And Swivel Mounting Brackets, part # CE10000G-4.

We also carry the mounting U-bolts to attach the brackets to the trailer frame. They vary in size and you will want to choose the correct ones based on the frame size of your trailer.

The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat. There should be a bracket attached to each cross member of the trailer frame.

  • Do CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards use Treated Wood
    The wood of the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards # CE27840 is not treated lumber, just the carpeting as you mentioned. The marine-grade carpet is designed to be resistant to weather and mold to help the boards last. These bunk boards are 72" long x 1-3/4" wide x 3-3/4" tall and will mount to your trailer with existing brackets or with Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4.

  • Do CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards Use Pressure Treated Wood
    The CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards for Boat Trailers # CE27840 does not use pressure treated wood, although the carpeting on the boards is both resistant to both weather and mold so if you rinse off the boards and let them dry these bunk boards will last. You can install the boards on your trailer frame's existing brackets or you can use the Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4. I have added links to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well.

  • Does Boat Have to Be Off Trailer to Install New Boat Bunk Boards
    Boat trailer bunk boards like CE Smith # CE27840 can be secured to swivel brackets like # CE10000G-4 using either galvanized or stainless steel hardware intended for wood. This is not included so you will source the preferred hardware locally. Lag bolts/screws would be great to secure the bunks to the brackets (as long as they are short enough to not come through the bunk). Obviously the boat would have to be off the trailer to be able to install the bunks like you mentioned so you would...

  • Could Metal V Brackets Attach to Trailer Instead of Swivel Bunk Board Brackets
    That would depend entirely on the trailer setup and how the V brackets are currently attached. At worst you could have them cut off and then as long as there are trailer crossmembers you could use swivel brackets like the # CE10000G-4.

  • Do the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards Come Pre-Drilled for Installation
    The carpeted bunk boards, # CE27840, come without any holes drilled so you would need to drill to attach brackets and/or directly to the trailer. The reason they are not pre-drilled is because different trailers have different mounting location requirements and CE Smith would not be able to pre-drill for every application. You can use the bolster brackets # CE10000G-4 to mount these bunk boards.
