Installation (User Guide)

Couplemate™️ 40mm Square U-Bolt Kits are easy for trailer spring maintenance.

  • Place U-shaped curve over axle beam.
  • Align the centre spring bolt and U-bolt legs with the fish plate holes.
  • Secure fish plate to leaf spring through supplied washers and nylock nuts. Tighten nuts to 60Nm with a socket.

Important: Check U-bolts and re-tighten nuts after the first trip and every 250 km thereafter.

Safety Precautions

  • Do not re-use nyloc nuts. Nyloc nuts are often less effective after the first use. This is because the nylon material (the key component of a nyloc nut) has already once conformed to the thread profile. 
  • Do not use a rattle gun to tighten. Rattle guns often tighten u-bolts too fast, too tight, and uneven. This can cause nylon overheat and risks undue wear. 
  • Ensure the axle has welded axle pads. If not, use the axle pads supplied with the spring U-bolt kit.
