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.

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!

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.

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:

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.




by:

Works well glad I installed them.




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:

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!


Comments
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:

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:

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

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!

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:

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




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:

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:

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.


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

Fast shipping. Parts were in stock. Great customer service




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:

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




by:

What I needed




by:

Works well to hold trailer bunks




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:

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:

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




by:

Good sturdy bracket, easy to install.

Works just fine, hasnt deteriorated.

See what our Experts say about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts



  • Do the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies have a Weight Capacity
    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. What I recommend is to find some u-bolts and hardware locally that have the proper capacity exceeding 350 pounds per u-bolt. If you did that then each one could support over 700 pounds. But the more brackets...

  • Is the Nut and Bolt to Hold Swivel Bracket to Bolster Bracket Included with # CE10001G-4
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and she informed me that the Bolster bracket # CE10001G-4 does come with the bolt and lock nut. The mounting hardware to attach the swivel bracket to the bunk is not included.

  • How to Attach CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10001G-4
    The CE Smith Galvanized Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10001G-4 come with nuts and bolts to attach the swivel brackets to the bolster brackets, but you will need to supply either lag bolts or other through bolt hardware to attach these assemblies to the wooden bunks on your boat trailer and the trailer frame. Either type of hardware is suitable and you can determine which is best, and what specific length you need, based on the construction of your particular...

  • Boat Won't Sit Properly on Boat Trailer Roller System
    I can definitely help you figure out what bunk boards to use, but I think with a little adjustment we can get your boat to load much easier with your current setup. Since rollers are considered an upgrade compared to carpeted bunk boards it's a little unusual to want to "downgrade" (in a sense) your boat trailer. From the pictures you sent in and the way you phrased the problem that you're having, it sounds like your Cakins boat makes contact with the keel rollers on your winch stand and...

  • Solution for Adding Ground Clearance to Sail Boat on Boat Trailer
    In order to provide more ground clearance for your sailboat while it's resting on the boat trailer bunks, I recommend replacing the bunk brackets with longer ones so they are positioned higher from the trailer frame. We do not have any bunk boards available that will give you added ground clearance on top of what your existing 2 x 4 boards provide. I have attached a link that will take you to our available selection of brackets that you can look through. You can use the facets on the...

  • Does CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies Have Weight Rating
    Bolster and swivel brackets like the CE Smith # CE10001G-4 that you referenced actually don't have a weight limit as the manufacturers don't test them that way. Basically just make sure you have a bracket at each mounting beam on your boat trailer and you are good to go! (as long as your boat trailer is rated for the weight of your boat)

  • What is the Weight Capacity of CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies - Galvanized Steel - 11" - Qty 4 # CE10001G-4 do not have a weight capacity, and are dependent on the U-bolts to hold the weight. 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...

  • 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 recommend the CE Smith Bolster And Swivel Mounting Brackets, part # CE10000G-4. These are 9 inches long and have a swivel feature that enables you to tilt the bunks to the correct angle to fit the bottom of your boat. 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. I have attached a link to our product page for the U-Bolts we carry. All of these come...

  • Galvanized Steel Pontoon Trailer Replacement V-Wing for Bunk Boards
    The CE Smith Galvanized V-Wing Bolster Bracket for Pontoon Boat Trailers # CE26244G does not include hardware. You can select galvanized hardware that will fit at your mounting point. I linked our page for galvanized u-bolt kits. This bracket is not intended for 2 x 4 bunk boards; it works with 2 x 6 or 2 x 8 boards to support your boat's pontoons. For 2 x 4 bunks you can use kit # CE10001G-4.

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.

  • Determining Trailer Bunk Board Length for 14 Foot Sailboat
    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. Since you no longer have the boards that originally came on your trailer it might also be a good idea to try and contact the...

  • Can I Install CE Smith Bolster Swivel Brackets On L Shaped Open Cross Member
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket part # CE10001G-4 attaches to the boat trailer frame with U-bolts. The brackets are designed to install on the inside of the cross member where the bunk boards would be on the frame. I recommend to use U-bolts part # CE15283GA-4 to install the brackets on the 3 inch channel cross member. I have attached a photo of what the install looks like on a trailer like yours.

For an overall height of 9" you will want part # CE10000G-4, for an overall height of 11" part # CE10001G-4, and for 13" part # CE10002G-4.

  • Recommended Placement of Bunk Boards on Bayliner Capri 1950
    After completing a very thorough image search online, it appears that the most common bunk placement is about 2/3 of the way between the keel and the ridge that runs along the side of the hull. Rather than on end, most of the bunks I saw had the board meeting the hull on the flat. This disperses more of the weight of the boat along the bunk. The # CE27820 bunk boards you mentioned would be perfect. I'd also recommend using # CE10001G-4 bunk brackets and # CE15283GA-4 Galvanized u-bolts.
