PostPosted: Mon Apr 22, 2013 10:22 pm    Post subject: Trailer Plate Bracket/Plastic Reply with quote

I pulled my boat into my driveway and somehow got my trailer plate stuck on something. It pulled it right off, so the plastic that's bolted in to the LED (that holds my plate in place) broke.

Any ideas on where I could get one? I could probably rig something up manually but if they are a couple bucks I'd rather just buy one LOCALLY.

Hope I explained it so it makes sense, if you don't have a boat you might not have a clue what I'm talking about lol.

Thanks!

Hi,

Tractor Supply has a lot of trailer parts.
That's where I get all mine.
I'd check there first before going to an auto parts place.

I checked their website and didn't see that specific part by itself, only with wiring. I can stop in there though and check them out. Thanks.

Steve, I have one that I don't need. You can have it, if you want it.

The reason I don't need the plastic bracket I have is that NWDarkcloud (aka Bob) gave me an old piece of mud flap with which I fabricated my own:



I like that it's flexible. Obviously, I hit stuff with it. Embarassed

Plates vibrate while traveling and when you back in and pull out of the water they bend back and forth. The light plastic and steel brackets give it up prettty quick. My chunk of mud flaps showng no signs of giveing up anytime soon Cool
