Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts CE11416 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the CE Smith extra long u-bolt kit for boat trailer guide-ons. The extra long u-bolts secure the bunk style, roller style, or post style guide-ons to your boat trailer. These are made from a durable steel construction. They feature a zinc plated design so they're strong and durable and they're also gonna do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. Now, this part number includes a total of four u-bolts. Other mounting hardware like locknuts and washers are sold separately.

But with this part number you get two formed crossover u-bolts and two straight u-bolts. The formed crossover ones are for those applications where you have to cross over the u-bolts around the trailer frame. So, two of those are include. They could also be used for, you know, going straight over the frame like this. Or you can flip them over and go under the frame.The product's made in the USA.

These u-bolts are designed to fit trailer frames up to three inches wide and five and one quarter inched tall. The inside leg link measuring from the bottom of this cross member right here to the end of the threads, that's six inches. And then the opening, that's the distance between the threaded portion, you'll notice that down here by the threads, it is a little bit wider than what it is here at the top. But down here by the threads, that opening is like pretty close to three and a half inches. But just keep in mind that these are designed to fit trailer frames up to three inches wide by five and one quarter inches tall and the diameter is three eighths of an inch.That's gonna do it for today's look at the CE Smith extra long u-bolt kit for boat trailer guide-ons..

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (205 Customer Reviews)

The Post Guide-Ons arrived quickly and have been installed.
They have not been water tested yet, but look like they will do the trick. Loading the boat on the trailer has been challenging when you can’t tell where you are side to side.
A couple things to consider: The width of the boat relative to the frame of the trailer make the bottom tubes of the guides just barely long enough. I believe it will work, but another inch of tube would be good for my setup. When installing, if you have a deep socket, you won’t have to switch to an open wrench. Other than that, I am very happy with these!




by:

The bolts nut and washers not galvanized already rusting.




by:

I have a welded aluminum boat with extended transom. I really needed some Guide-Ons mounted at the rear of the trailer to ensure that the extended transom centered up on the trailer bunks, as cross currents at the haul out would often skew the boat to one side, and I would need to back down in to the water and re-center. Frustrating when people are waiting in line!!
I got the CE Smith Guide-Ons, but was dismayed when I opened the box and found that the included U-Bolts were not long enough for my 5 inch EZ Loader trailer frame. A quick search of etrailer and I found the solution with the Extra Long Bolt Kit.
Worked perfectly. Now my boat stays centered when I haul out on the first try.




by:

Excellent product. Just as advertised. Easy to install solo and made of solid materials. Haven’t used to pull boat out yet, but can’t imagine it won’t guide me in great. I used the extra long U-bolt kit because of my trailer being 6 inches. Not sure why they wouldn’t just include them from the beginning as they are only a 1/2 “ longer, but that’s the way it goes. Very satisfied




by:

worked great with the C E Simth Bunk - style side rails I purchased




by:

These u bolts are a perfect fit on bass pro shop/cabelas boat guides




by:

Good place for parts!!I did call on another matter and the young lady had a hard time understanding what I was needing. Thanks




by:

I updated my trailer by adding a set of guide-ons and its been a real plus especially on breezy days or loading /unloading by myself.

Have not opened packages. Hopefully there is no damage. Package with rails has a large hole in it. I will let you know tonight. Customer service is great with ya'll

one day late




by:

Once i received my 6" ubolts i was able to install my guides on my trailer.
parts arrived on times very satisfied with the service i will buy from e-trailer again




by:

Easy to order and arrived earlier than they thought it would.




by:

It should have come with the guide ons




by:

Just what we needed! Love these guides.




by:

Product sturdier than i imagined. Installed so easily. had to get the longer u bolts for my frame. 60" was perfect for my 21' boat. Very happy with delivery and tracking ability. I am a new and satisfied customer.




by:

Product worked perfectly as advertised. Outstanding rapid service from etrailer.com.




by:

I purchased guide-on bunks to facilitate the loading of my pontoon from the lake onto my trailer. The hardware included two kinds of u-bolts. One kind is a standard u-bolt The other kind has an indentation in the center of the crossbar. The instructions showed that the u-bolts should be crossed when installed on the frame of the trailer.
But crossing the u-bolts is impossible if the frame is three inches wide. I learned that for frames that are three inches wide, the u-bolts should NOT be crossed. I learned this only by finding on U-Tube a demonstration of the installation. The instructions should have made this point clear.

On a separate matter, the representative who took my order, Bryan, provided excellent service.


Comments
I have spoken with my contacts at CE Smith and these should work for their guide ons, and they do need to be crossed for a correct install. The flat u-bolt should be mounted closest to trailer frame then the indented/formed on should be installed over the flat one.

Good quality extra long bolts, I have the thick beam trailer, so they fit nice...Thank you..




by:

The bunks worked great. Boat went on the trailer nice.... fixed my issues 100 percent.




by:

Just what I needed for my application




by:

etrailer has always provided fast & excellent service. My trailer guides were no exception. Had to get the u bolt kit to accommodate 5 inch trailer frame. All packaged together with guides, arrived in 3 days! Installed in 45 min. Keep up the stellar work!




by:

Purchased to help get our pontoon up onto a EZ Loader trailer. Limited mounting locations due to trailer. But, works like a charm.




by:

Description states 6" and measures 6" I have a 5 1/4" ibeam frame on the trailer and thought there would be plenty of length to mount roller guide on's. Just barely enough length to use had to leave out the included washers.


Comments
Working as expected. I would note that with my 20 boat they are at their max capacity and still work very well.

    It sounds like you might be looking for roller-style guide-ons like the CE Smith # CE27610. These will keep your boat centered during the loading process and the corrosion-resistant posts support 9 inch rubber rollers. They will fit trailer frames up to 3 inches wide and 4-1/4 inches tall.

  • What Size Boat Trailer Frame will CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Fit Around
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27640 may work great for your trailer, but there are a couple of measurements you will want to take. The # CE27640 will install on your boat trailer with the included U-bolts and will not require drilling. In addition to the 3 inch width of your trailer rail, you will also want to know the height of the rail.

  • How to Determine if the CE Smith Guide-Ons CE27620 would Fit a 2016 Bass Tracker Pro 170
    If your trailer frame is up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall the Guide Ons part # CE27620 would fit as-is on your trailer. For frames up to 5-1/4" tall, 2 extra-long U-bolt kits # CE11416 ( sold separately) are required. You will need to consider the trailer frame dimension restrictions I mentioned plus the fact that these can be adjusted out 13 inches from the trailer frame to determine if these would work for you.

  • CE Smith Boat Guide-Ons Recommendation for a Trailer with 3x5-1/2 inch Frame
    I have a solution for you, but the U-bolts included with the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636 are only good for trailer frames that are up to 5-1/2 inches. You would also need the CE Smith Extra Long U-Bolt Kit part # CE11416 as this will work on frames up to 6 inches so it would work well for you.

    A crossmember or frame channel will work great for attaching the CE Smith Post Guide Ons part # CE27620. Either of those mentioned will be the most secure places to secure these. For the longer u-bolt kit you'll want the part # CE11416.

  • How to Know if the CE Smith Boat Guide Ons will Fit a Boat Trailer
    If the frame rails of the trailer you mentioned are up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall the guide ons part # CE27600 would fit and work well as-is. If you have a frame that is an inch taller at 5-1/4 inches tall you'd then also need the U-bolt kit part # CE11416.

  • Does 4-1/2 Inch Tall Trailer Frame Require Taller U-Bolts with CE Smith Post Guide Ons CE27640
    You are very close to the dimension that requires the longer u-bolts, but since you are over the frame height of 4-1/4 inches you would need the u-bolt kit part # CE11416. If you wanted to trim down the height of the uprights to a lower height that is an option as well.

  • Boat Trailer Guide-Ons for 18 Alumacraft Dominator on Shorelandr Trailer
    I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights # CE27740. These will provide you with the assistance when loading in wind and current but also with visibility as the lights come in handy when it starts to get dark. This will not only help when loading the boat but also when backing up the trailer as the lights and poles offer a great reference point for seeing the back of the trailer. This kit will fit trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall. The CE Smith Extra-Long U-Bolt...

  • Which Boat Guides Should I Get For My 22 Foot Tritoon Boat?
    Thanks for the photos, nice boat! I think with a boat of that size, you would be better off getting the large post-style guides as the smaller ones may not be sufficient and would be harder to see. I would go with the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall # CE27640. These fit trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall; for frames that are up to 5-1/4" tall you will also need to get Extra-Long U-Bolt Kit # CE11416.

  • Fit of CE Smith CE27610 Roller Guide Ons on EZ Loader Single Axle Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith # CE27610 roller Guide-Ons aren't trailer specific, so they'll work for most trailers. The U-bolt kit included with the guide-ons will be compatible with trailer frame members from 3 inches wide x 4-1/4 inches tall. An extra-long kit # CE11416 is available for frames up to 5-1/4 inches tall. The roller itself is 13 inches long, and the guide ons are 21 inches tall, so if they're mounted above the frame member, they'll extend upward for a total height of 21 inches. I've linked...

If these aren't the correct height for you I have also linked our selection of post-style guide ons for you to filter through. These range from 22" tall all the way to 75" tall.

From what I can tell of the photo you sent it looks like the guide-ons you are currently using are bolted on with U-bolts and the Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27640 will also be attached to your trailer frame with U-bolts.

These guide-ons will fit trailer frames that are up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall, though if your frame is up to 5-1/4" tall you can still use these guide-ons by adding the CE Smith Extra-Long U-Bolt Kit for Boat Trailer Guide-Ons...
