Specification Description
Brand: Carry-On Trailer
Noun: Bearing Protector
Diameter: 1-1/16 in.
Manufacturer Part Number 498
Carry-On Trailer Bearing Protector with Grease Fitting, 1-1/16 in. is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from VERY HARD TO INSTALL AND NO INSTRUCTIONS I had to replace a hub on my 1987 boat trailer and bought a Carry-On hub from TSC and a pair of bearing protectors. So I had one original hub and a new Carry-On hub. I could not get the protector in my original hub so I figured the hub was probably just too tight, maybe on the tight end of the specifications. I went to the side with the new hub, no luck there. Then I got the file out and put a 0.090 inch , ten degree chamfer on it. Using a 20 ounce hammer (and 2X4) it still wouldn't go. So, I upgraded to a 3 pound hammer and finally got it on. There were no instructions in my package and none on the TSC site. I wish I had read the reviews, the freezing idea was a good one as well as using a BIG hammer. I know about freezing just didn't think about it. On a hot day freezing the Protector will reduce the diameter about 0.001" which is a lot on a 2" diameter. On a cold day putting a heat gun on the hub and getting it up to a hot-to-touch temp (140 F.) would give you another 1/2 thousand inch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little difficult to install the instructions say to use a rubber mallet. that's a joke. my first attempt to install these was a failure- there was no way they would go in even using a big hammer with a piece of 2x4 in between. after thinking about it, I put a little grease on the protector's bevel edge and stuck them in the deep freeze for a couple hours. that did the trick! taking the temp down to zero must have shrunk it down just enough to go in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit my CarryOn trailer fine. Took a chance after reading the reviews, some folks may have gotten a bad batch. Used a 3 pound (shot filled) rubber hammer, lined them up and they tapped right in. Now, they are good and tight, but they are supposed to fit like that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Machined too large I bought these after a physical comparison with the dust cap, and they appeared to be the correct item. I have had numerous trailers over the years, and have installed this type of item on each of them without problems, so I know what I'm doing. These absolutely defy installation. I used a 2x4 and heavy hammer to avoid damage to the item, and it will not even begin to drive home. The parts are going back to Tractor Supply tomorrow for a refund.

This says it will grease the "outer bearing". What about greasing the "inner bearing"?

Asked by: CRRob
If the axle is not an ezlube axle you will have to manually pack/grease the back bearing.
