Trailer Hat Bracket replacement
I purchased this galvanized U-Bolt along with a Boat Trailer Hat Bracket. The measurement given between the outer most holes of the Hat Bracket is 3 inches and the measurement given of the inside width of the u-Bolt is 3 1/16 inches. Well the U-Bolt would not fit into the Hat Bracket... I was able to place it in a vice and bend the U-Bolt out slightly to get the pieces to fit together. Although this was a minor inconvenience... I suppose someone without a vice or alternative method to bend out the U-Bolt could have problems. I also thought the price of the items was very reasonable/competitive, but the shipping was more than the cost of the two items combined... I looked for these parts locally but could not find them (especially true of the Hat Bracket), to avoid paying such high shipping charges.
