Couplemate Trailer Parts has launched a new product, Durahub Bearing Protectors, designed to allow trailer owners to easily inspect bearings for wear.
The protectors have a “window” design on the outside of the wheel, so that the grease condition inside the wheel hub can be seen. “If water or contaminants have entered the bearing cavity, it indicates the bearing needs to be removed and re-packed,” said Steve Wotherspoon, president of Couplemate Trailer Products.
Wotherspoon said the product has proven successful in the rugged terrain of Australia and is being introduced to the U.S. and Canadian markets this summer. For more information, visit couplematetrailerparts.com.
