I apologize if I didnt look through all these threads thoroughly enough, but can anyone identify this roller this guy has attached to his tow hitch? Right now i am using a T mount with a strap. It works but not as smoothly as this thing.

Just go to any boat dealer. They are sure to have any number of different roller shapes, sizes and even colours.

Agreed, any boat dealer or marine shop should carry similar rollers and assemblies. The tricky part is how to attach it (welding/as it appears in the picture, or bolted)


The rollers are very common. Sounds like you may be looking for the whole "housing bracket- assembly". I have not seen that post, but it looks like they fabricated the housing bracket to fit into the hitch post as well as welded on the side roller brackets. If that's the case (and you are looking to do something similar) I'd recommend finding a local welder/bring them the rollers/assemblies and tell them what you are looking to do.

Good luck!
