45mm Square Galvanised Unbraked Lazy Axle
45mm square galvanised unbraked axle or lazy axle is used on tandem axle trailers and has a maximum weight rating of 1600kg in a parallel configuration. Tandem configurations over 750kg have one braked axle.
Why Couplemate axles are well-engineered
- Couplemate galvanises Australian Steel in Brisbane.
- Australian made hubs are machined, studded and galvanised by Couplemate.
- Couplemate manufacturers galvanised axles in-house.
- Couplemate installs the precision high-quality NSK bearings during assembly.
- Finally, all axles are tested and double-checked in the final process before dispatch.
Galvanised Unbraked Axle kits comprise:
- 1 x 45mm Square Galvanised Axle
- 2 x Galvanised Lazy Hubs
- Nuts to suit the stud pattern
- 2 x Japanese bearing kits
Couplemate guarantees its axles to be trouble-free. Consumables such as bearings and seals need to be replaced from time to time. However, the axle profile and machining is the best money can buy.
Replacement trailer parts for braked trailers or unbraked axles are readily available.
Why should I use Dome Nuts?
We sell dome nuts because I had a problem adjusting my bearings for the trip home from the Hawkesbury River.
No problem removing three wheels, however, the fourth wheel refused to move this wheel nut
No amount of leverage would unfreeze the rusty wheel nut.
The wheel nut protruded past the nut and has become rusted.
One of the guests in the caravan park produced a Hilti Rattle gun. To my surprise, it removed the rusty wheel nut immediately.

Trailer Axle Alignment
Installing a new axle into position is quite tricky for novice installers.
Measure the distance from the chassis rail to the back of the hub on both sides. Once correctly aligned, install the u-bolts over the axle.
Alternatively, measure the chassis width of the trailer. This measurement allows us to weld the axle pads onto the axle before delivery. As a result of the installed axle pads, the axle will auto-locate over the spring centre pins.
In seconds, the axle is perfectly aligned and ready for the u-bolt kit to be installed.
