I've already gone ahead and removed my trailer's old jack. You want to be sure and support your trailer's A-frame with a floor jack or your vehicle's hitch. Now, it doesn't come with any hardware, so you will have to provide your own. To make it easier, you can just reuse your old hardware.First step is to remove our caster, so we'll remove the pin and then it just slides right off. Now let's go ahead and install it. It's a standard A-frame design, so it should line up with your existing holes. Perfect. Then we can take our hardware. I'm going to loosely install all the bolts, and then I'll tighten them down. Now we can reinstall our caster, and then we're all set. Once it's all the way down, it raises up, and remove our floor jack.That's going to complete our look at the Bulldog round A-frame jack with caster, part number BD155300.
