Al-ko Auto Retract Jockey Wheel is a heavy duty Auto Retract Jockey Wheels for heavier applications. Winding the handle automatically retracts the wheel and fork to a travelling position.

Originally designed for the EU and UK market, this modern auto-retract jockey wheel has become a favourite of boating manufacturers in Australia.


Jockey Wheels have been a problem for caravaners and boaters for many years. Believe me, I have tried nearly every jockey wheel.

Like you, I put up with blood, sweat and abuse until I found this little beauty. It was a delight to try the Al-ko auto retract jockey wheel.

Finally, an auto retracts jockey wheel that works. However, there is a problem with the mounting holes as they do not fit 4″ or larger chassis rails.

Note: Al-ko auto retract jockey fits all 3″ or 75mm chassis rails.

Solution: We decided u-bolts did not work effectively. I decided to drag out the battery drill and replace the u-bolts with 4 x hex head galvanised self-tapping screws.

After 6 months and a lot of use, this Al-ko jockey wheel as performed better than expected.

Of all the jockey wheels on the market and I have many to choose from, this Al-ko auto retract is the best for me.

Get one today, you will not be disappointed.

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.
