Why You Should Buy Bearing Buddy for Your Trailer

If you own a trailer, you know how important it is to keep your wheel bearings in good condition. Wheel bearings are essential for smooth and safe towing, but they can also be damaged by water, dirt, and corrosion. That’s why you need Bearing Buddy, the original and best wheel bearing protector on the market.

Bearing Buddy is a device that attaches to your trailer hub and creates a slight positive pressure inside the hub. This prevents water and contaminants from entering the hub when you back your trailer into water for launching or retrieving your boat. It also keeps the grease inside the hub fresh and lubricated, extending the life of your bearings and reducing maintenance costs.

Bearing Buddy is easy to install and use. You just need to measure the inside diameter of your hub bore and select the right model for your trailer. You can use the Size Gauge Card available at marine dealers or online to find the correct Bearing Buddy model based on the size of your dust cap. Then you simply remove the dust cap and press the Bearing Buddy into the hub with a rubber mallet or a piece of wood.

Bearing Buddy has a blue ring that acts as a visual lubricant level indicator. When you see the blue ring, it means that your hub is properly filled with grease. If you don’t see the blue ring, you need to add more grease through the grease fitting on the Bearing Buddy until the blue ring appears. You can also use a Bearing Buddy Bra, which is a vinyl cover that fits over the Bearing Buddy to contain excess grease and keep it off tires and wheels.

If your trailer has brakes, you can use the Spindle Seal System, which is designed for use with Bearing Buddy. The Spindle Seal System consists of a neoprene seal that fits into the hub and a stainless steel ring that fits on the spindle. The neoprene seal rides on a smooth stainless steel surface constantly greased by the action of Bearing Buddy, which prolongs the life of the seal and prevents excessive grease leakage.

Bearing Buddy is made of high-quality stainless steel that resists rust and corrosion. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is trusted by millions of trailer owners around the world. You can buy Bearing Buddy online or at your local marine dealer. O’Reilly Auto Parts offers 10 different models of Bearing Buddy with different inside diameters ranging from 1-3/4 inch to 2-3/4 inch. You can also find Bearing Buddy covers, spindle seals, and other accessories at O’Reilly Auto Parts.

Don’t let water and dirt ruin your wheel bearings and spoil your fun. Buy Bearing Buddy today and enjoy smooth and safe towing for years to come.
