Video Transcript for Demco Bolt-On Swivel Jack Spare Tire Carrier Review

AJ: What's up everybody It's AJ with Today we're going to check out the Demco Spare Tire Carrier that mounts your swivel jack. Take a look at our boat trailer today. You can see we don't have a lot of options to mount our spare tire. Sure, we can just throw it in the boat and take away boat space. We can try and put it here underneath the boat, but I don't think it's going to fit there.

So, what the Demco Spare Tire Carrier does, is it allows it to mount the existing hardware on your swivel jack. I set both color options side by side. We have the silver finish one or the black powder coat finish one. So, I know every trailer is different. Whatever one you think would fit best for your trailer, it's up to you.

Both are going to work the same and hold the same tires. It's literally just a color difference.And how the spare tire carrier works, is you can loosen this bolt here in the center, which backs off this plate here and allows the bolts to slide freely in these channels which accommodates to many different bolt pattern sizes. So this is the six and a half bolt pattern all the way down to the two and a half, minimum. It's important to get your bolt pattern set while it's on the ground like this, whether then when it's attached to your jack. So we're just going to lay down.

I actually put a roll of tape in here to help hold this up since it's a little bit off-center, it'll tip. We're going to set the tire down on top of that and get these bolts lined up. Just lift up the tire, line up that bolt. It looks like it needs to come this way a little bit more.It's easy enough just to lift it up. Look at that.

Lines up. So we're go ahead and give it a couple turns to tighten it while the tire is on there, and then take the tire off and continue to tighten it just enough so it won't move when I take the tire off. There you go.Now ready to attach it to the jack. What we have to do there is we're just going to back out of these bolts and remove these plates on this side because that's where our spare tire carrier is going to mount. Now go ahead and remove the plates, and then we'll add our spare tire carrier.Now we're going to add our nuts back in here. Use the existing hardware on your swivel jack. It does not come with hardware. And when we went to go put the bolts back in, we just tapped it a little bit here with a hammer just to get it through. It was not quite wanting to go through. Just one little tap and they went through just fine. Now we'll run those down and try and do it evenly with all four. Now with the spare tire carrier installed on the tongue of the trailer I can go ahead and lower the swivel jack back down on the ground and we can get rid of this floor jack.Now let's throw on our spare tire. We already had the bolt set to this pattern earlier. This will just be a matter of lining it up. You got them on there. Now the spare tire carrier does not come with lug nuts so you have to get those separately. So make sure you get the appropriate lug nuts. We have a steel wheel here, so we've got lug nuts that work with steel. I'll go ahead and tighten them down. With it tightened down, let's give it the shake test. I'm moving the whole trailer. I didn't hear any clanging or anything like that. I didn't see or feel any movement while I was shaking the tire. So, I think it's going to hold the tire of your boat trailer just fine.I think it was a great option because as you can see, there's not a lot of other options for this. You have to go somewhere on the tongue here on the front and we thought the jack might be a way for any other way to do it, or we'd have to throw our tire in the boat and that just takes up boat space. This uses the existing space you have and just puts it on the other side of the jack. Nice and out of the way, and not in your boat. Now whether you go with the silver or the black powder coating, they both have a 500-hour salt spray rating. So if you're near the ocean or just in an area where they put a lot of salt down in the winter, it's going to be protected from those elements. That does it for our look at the Demco Spare Tire Carrier. Hope this helped.

Worked as advertised


Great, very heavy-duty part. Bolted and welded it to a car trailer for a 2nd spare tire mount.


We bought two of spare tire carriers for our trailer. We have them mounted near the back door of the inside of the trailer. They take up minimal space which we like. I recommend this product. We have had no problem with it coming loose and we go down dirt bumpy roads.


I'm very pleased with etrailer. Your company is an asset to our needs. Even though it's one item for now we will continue to visit your site when in need of items for my son's car carrier, daughter's horse trailers and our campers. Thank you and stay healthy thru these tough times


Excellent to work with


100% Excellent and good service

  • Construction of Demco DM15853-76 Spare Tire Carrier
    The Demco # DM15853-76 Spare Tire Carrier is constructed of powder-coated steel that could indeed be bolted or welded directly to the trailer frame. The carrier won't bolt to a frame member 6 inches tall, so you would need to weld it in place.

  • Compatibility of Demco DM15853-76 Spare Tire Carrier with 6 Lug Rim
    By '6 lock', I'm assuming you mean 6 lug. As long as the rim in question has two lug holes that are between 2-1/2 and 6-1/2 inches apart, this Demco # DM15853-76 spare tire carrier will work for you. For 6 lug wheels, a 6 lug on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern is most common, if that's what you have, this carrier would work perfectly for you.

The Demco Spare Tire Carrier for Bolt-On Swivel Jack # DM15853-76 accepts wheel bolt patterns from 2-1/2 inches to 6-1/2 inches so make sure that your spare tire has a bolt pattern within the bounds of the minimum and maximum bolt pattern.

  • Spare Tire Carrier that Can Attach to Side of Tear Trailer
    We have bolt on spare tire carriers like the part # DM15853-76 which was designed to attach to the opposite side of bolt on trailer jack that if you could use to bolt on a spare carrier basically anywhere including the side of a tear trailer as long as the wall was reinforced enough for the weight of it.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for a Snowmobile Trailer With 8 Inch Wheels
    With your rim having an inner diameter of 7-1/4 inches, the Demco Spare Tire Carrier for Bolt-On Swivel Jack - Black # DM15853-76 will end up being a little too large. The place where a wheel secures to it measures right at 8-3/4 inches and will be a little too big for your rim. However, I do have a couple other options for you. The first will be a little odd, but can work with a lot of different applications. The Erickson Spare Trailer Tire Bracket Kit # EM77316 works with just about...

  • Recommended Spare Tire and Carrier for 2014 Boatmate Trailer
    Thanks for following up with the photo. I see that you have size 225/75/15 tires with the 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. We do not have the specific wheels you have, but we do have similar options. If you want the aluminum wheel with the tire installed, I recommend the Castle Rock ST225/75R15 Radial Tire w/ 15" Liger Aluminum Wheel - 6 on 5-1/2 - LR D - Black # LH29FR. If you don't want the aluminum wheel for the spare, then I recommend the Provider ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire...
