Jockey wheels are used on the front of trailers/boats/caravans/floats to hold up the front when not attached to your vehicle. Without this support, your trailer would not remain 'level'.
They can be attached in several different ways. We have seen them welded to the a-frame of the trailer. We, West Coast Trailer Parts & Accessories, generally bolt them onto the trailer using the clamp that they come with. These come in two different types: bolt on fixed clamps and bolt on swivel clamps. You can either clamp them on thru the trailer a-frame, or using a bracket to clamp around the trailers a-frame.
As jockey wheels are also usually the first thing to get damaged on your boat/float/caravan/trailer, we generally recommend using the clamp and bolt method to attach for ease of replacement.
West Coast Trailer Parts has a huge range available from Ark Products and Manutec Manufacturing Technology in stock for those times when you forget to lift up your wheel. Or, when you simply just need to replace your old worn out one.
