Review of the Performance Tool Plastic Bearing Packer

Today we will be showing you the performance tool bearing packer Part Number PTW1218. This is what it looks like after we force grease into our bearing. It's a good idea to re-grease your trailer bearings every few years. It extends your life of your bearing and keeps your wheels protected. Reduces friction, keeps the water out preventing corrosion and rust. Now I'll show you how it's done. To assemble your packer you find the plastic cap with the solid end on it and you thread your rod in.

Making sure that the hole stays above the cap of your plastic. Then you take your bearing that you're going to grease, set it on top. Then you take your cap and thread it on. You want to make sure this is nice and snug on top. Now that I've got that set up I take my grease gun put in the zerk fitting on top and force or grease through.

This not only puts new grease in, it forces the old grease out. It accommodates roller bearings like the type I have in there now or ball bearings depending on what style you need. You can see it's coming out the bottom right here and it should be squeezing out between our roller bearings. When you're done putting your grease through you pop your grease gun off. Have your paper towels handy.

Un-thread your top piece and you can remove your newly packed bearing. As you can see there's grease in between our inner shield and our outer shield. It's been forced in by our gun. That's it for a look at the performance tool bearing packer. Part Number PTW1218.
