Editors Note: Finally, an auto retracts jockey wheel that works. However, there is a problem with the mounting holes as they do not Australian 4″ chassis rails.

Solution: We decided to machine some u-bolt holes to suit my 4″ drawbar and will load up a video and images soon. I am so impressed that I put the auto-retract into production and now machine holes in our CNC MIll to suit 4″ drawbars.

The Al-ko auto retract jockey wheel comes standard with the mounting plate, however, the holes need work as they do not line up with standard chassis rails.

The auto-retract to suit 4″ chassis rails is available to retail customers only.

    Editors Review: I was so impressed with this Auto Retract during testing, I have installed it on my own ski boat. Rugged, durable and stows up and out of the way. It is heavy duty and no swivel pins which can rattle.
