This 3 inch wide U Bolt is very common on many boat trailers. Their are many locations on modern boat trailers that use 3 inch wide material for making up the frame of the trailer. We offer these in stainless steel to prevent rust and corrosion that results from saltwater, or dissimilar metals. If you have aluminum cross members, or an aluminum frame, then stainless steel is your best and most permanent option. This size U Bolt would be commonly seen on cross members, trailer side frames, trailer tongues, and bunk brackets.
Use of a lithium or graphite based lubricant is recommended during installation to prevent galling. U-bolts must be tightened using hand tools ONLY and threaded on correctly. Improper threading, use of power tools, over-tightening or tightening too fast will result in galling or sticking of the U-bolt.
