Galvanized Steel

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

Video Transcript for CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies Review

Today we're going to take a look at the CE Smith Bolster Bump Bracket. Part number CE10003G. The bracket is stamped and galvanized, giving it a 3 to 5mm coating. This makes it adaptable, even in salt water, to resist rust and corrosion. One the side that faces the trailer, it's dimpled, so that it will grip the steel of the trailer, and doesn't slide or shift around. The top bracket will swivel, allowing the roller bump to conform to the boat's haul. Another really nice feature, it only takes one U-bolt to secure to your boat trailer. The overall height of our bracket is 11 inches.

The adjustability is 10 inches. It's two an a half inches wide. This is a heavy duty bracket, made of 11 gauge, galvanized steel. Making it perfect for your boat trailer application. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it. To begin our install, we're going to remove the old or manufacturer's boards and brackets. Since we're removing the bunk boards and brackets, we're just going to take the U-bolts off the frame. Quick tech tip: Before you remove your boards, take a tape measure, and get the height of your board.

That way when you install your new brackets and rollers, you can set it back to the same height. Now that we have the boards loose, we'll go ahead and take them off the trailer and set them aside as they will not be reinstalled. Next we're going to install the new CE Smith bracket. Our bracket will replace the old or manufacturer's bracket that we removed. To secure our bracket to the frame we're going to use the CE Smith U-bolt. Part number CE15283GA. The U-bolt will go around the frame, into the bracket, and then get secured with a split lock washer and nut. Let's go ahead and put it in place now. Now that we've installed our fasteners we're just going to install them finger tight this time. Keep in mind when you tighten down your U-bolt, make sure you tighten down both sides evenly. Once we have our bracket installed we'll go ahead and tighten our bracket down. Here on our rear support, or rear portion of our frame, we're going to ahead and install our bracket and U-bolt.

Our bracket and U-bolt are going to sit in the exact same position as the old, or manufacturer's bracket. Then again to secure it we'll use a split lock washer and hex nut on each side of our U-bolt. Remember, when tightening down your U-bolt, make sure you tighten down both sides evenly. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the remaining brackets. I'll go ahead and take the roller bump, set it onto our brackets, and secure the bump to the brackets. When securing your bump to the brackets, the hardware is not supplied. I'm going to use a bolt and flat washer. It's going to go down through the roller bump, then through the bracket. Underneath I'm going to add another washer, and a nylon lock nut. Once we have all of our hardware in place, we can tighten it down. There you have it, for part number, CE10003G.

VERY HEAVY DUTY BRACKET!GOOD QUALITY!GREAT PROUDUCT!




by:

Good quality except for the hardware. They used zinc plated steel hex bolt and lock-nut. If the brackets are galvanized then the hardware should be stainless steel. May add a little to the price but makes for a better product. I replaced the inferior hardware with 304 Stainless hex bolt and lock-nut




by:

This is a simple product, but a very good one for boat trailer bunks. It is heavy steel and heavily galvanized. I bought two to replace very old ones which did not have the strengthening bridge across the slot that these have; my old ones separated at that mid-point, from wear and tear and age.

All my purchases have exceeded expectations. Great service and excellent quality. Thanks for having what I needed to get the job done!!

  • What Size Mounting Hole is On Top of Roller Bunk Bracket CE10003G-4
    The hole in the top of the swivel bracket of the bunk bracket part # CE10003G-4 is 7/16 inch in diameter. You would need to go with a nut and bolt that matches that hole size the best when securing your roller bunk to it. We don't have a specific size recommendation as applications can differ.

  • Adding Bunks to 20 Foot Boat Trailer with Deep V Hull
    To add additional bunks on your trailer you'd need to attach them to the crossmembers like what I can see under your boat in your picture. To do that the # CE10003G would be a great option that can attach in that orientation. Looks like there's two crossmembers so a total of 4 brackets would be what you'd need to add an additional two bunks. I attached a review video for these for you to check out as well.

  • Determining Length of Bolster Bracket for New Bunk System on Boat Trailer
    To be on the safe size, I recommend going with a 13 inch bracket # CE10002G-4 at the back of the trailer and an 11 inch bracket with # CE10003G at the front. A nice feature on these brackets is that they will each actually have as much as 3-3/4 inches of height adjustment due to their mounting slots, so even if its total height is a bit higher than needed, you can adjust them down. This will allow you to have the perfect height for your new bunk support system. I have attached a short...

  • Roller Bunk Recommendation for a Boat Trailer with Wood Bunks
    The CE Smith Roller Bunks, # CE27700, that you referenced would be a great option for your boat trailer. These roller bunks are 4 ft long and they can be mounted directly on top of your current wood bunks. You can also use the CE Smith Mounting Brackets, # CE10003G-4, if you want to replace the wood bunks with the roller bunks. Keep in mind, these bunks have a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs, but based on your photo, I do not think you will have much of an issue with that.

  • Can I Remove the Keel Rollers and Add Bunk Rollers to a Boat Trailer for a Smoker Craft Boat
    I would be apprehensive about completely removing the keel rollers, especially if they support any weight. Removing the keel rollers would force the bunks to support more weight. This could be dangerous with the bouncing affect trailers and boats experience when towing. To make sure it is completely safe to remove the keel rollers without potentially damaging the boat, I recommend contacting Smoker Craft directly because they would be the best source to tell you if the hull of your boat...

  • How Would Roller Bunks Install on Karavan Boat Trailer
    Since the picture you submitted belongs to Karavan I can't post it here on our site, but if you check out the attached picture you can see how a very similar trailer had a set of rollers like the part # CE27710 installed. For a set of swivel brackets like what you see in the picture that are holding the bunks you'd then want the part # CE10003G-4. I also attached a couple install video links for you to check out as well.

  • Does it Matter Which Side of the Crossmember the Boat Bunk Brackets Install On
    It doesn't really matter which side of the crossmember of the trailer frame the bunk brackets install on. As long as they are torqued down properly either way will be perfectly safe. Since the brackets have swivels like # CE10003G-4 there would be no need to cut the boards at a different angle.

    You could absolutely replace your standard wooden bunk boards with the CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers - 5 Rollers Each - 4' Long - 1,500 lbs - 1 Pair # CE27700 you were looking at, but since they have a 1500lb rating each you will need to make sure to use at least 3 pairs due to your boat being 4200lbs. These roller bunks will allow you to load your 26' Seaswirl much easier. The easiest way to install these is to just attach them directly to your existing bunk boards, but if...

    Yes, can replace your current wooden bunks with a set of roller-bunks, like the CE Smith Roller Bunks # CE27710. Upgrading to roller-bunks will improve the loading and unloading of your boat. The roller are made of a heavy-duty rubber that will not only absorb the shock when loading and unloading your boat, but the rubber roller will protect the hull of your boat from scratches.

    For your Commercial Crab Boat, I recommend the CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers - 5 Rollers Each - 4' Long - 1,500 lbs - 1 Pair # CE27700. These 4 foot long rollers are 4-3/4 inches wide x 2-1/2 inches diameter. I recommend using the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies for Roller Bunks - Galvanized Steel - Qty 4 # CE10003G-4 to support it. I would use extras for more support and better weight dispersion on your frame due to the size and weight of your boat. As long...

  • Roller Bunk Recommendation For Boat Trailer Used In Saltwater
    If you are looking to replace the bunks on your trailer with roller bunks, we have a few that may work for you. For a 5 foot bunk I recommend the CE Smith Roller Bunks, part # CE27710. These are constructed of 12 gauge galvanized steel and are rust and corrosion resistant. Since you said you are needing them for salt water, we recommend rinsing them with fresh water to prolong the life of the rollers. If you need a 4 foot version of these rollers I recommend part # CE27700. To mount...

  • Roller Bunk Recommendation for Jet Ski Ramp
    For the 10 foot long bunks you have two sets of the CE Smith roller bunks part # CE27700 would work well for you. These can be mounted directly to the wooden bunks you have already or you can remove them and install them with the brackets part # CE10003G-4. The steel of these buns are galvanized which will do an excellent job preventing rust and corrosion. They would last longer than wood being constantly submerged.

  • Recommended Rollers for Pontoon Boat Trailer with Wooden Bunk Boards
    The CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers part # CE27710 will work great on a pontoon boat, they can either be mounted to the wooden bunk boards or attached directly to the frame using Swivel Brackets part # CE10003G-4. There will be more support if you mount them directly to the bunk boards but this will raise the height of the boat by about 3". If this is too much then you can use the swivel brackets which are height adjustable. You'll need one set of rollers per bunk board if you...

    We have had this come up before and the manufacturer stated that the CE Smith Roller Bunks for Boat Trailers # CE27710 would work for a 15' boat in place of your 7' bunk boards as long as the cross members are 56 inches or less. Which your 50" spread is. You can mount them to the existing bunk boards on your trailer or you can use the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies for Roller Bunks # CE10003G-4.

  • Is There a Way to get a 14 Inch Bolster Bracket?
    We do have an option to get you to the 14 inches, but it will be parts that need to be purchased separately. So with that being said, the CE Smith Bolster Bracket # CE10102G will measure 12 inches tall and if paired with the CE Smith Swivel Bracket # CE10200G, it will get you to the 14 inches.

    I do have a solution for you, however the CE Smith Spool Roller Assembly # CE32100G aren't wide enough to safely support the boat keel of your 18 foot Norwegian Faering. I recommend something a bit wider like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly # CE10453G with an 8 inch roller and mounting slots spaced 6 inches apart. You will want to have one for each cross member on your boat trailer. The only other thing you will need are 1/2" or 7/16" fasteners. I have included a video review...
