Frequently Asked Questions for DIY Roll-In Kits

Q:  How do I know the kit will fit my dock?
A:  There are 2 key points you must review to ensure the roll-in wheel kit will fit your dock. First, a 48" dock kit will fit a dock that has support pipes either mounted immediately to the outside of the frame or immediately to the inside of the frame.   For example, if the the distance between centers on your dock support pipes are between 45.5 and 50.5 inches, you should be all set.   Similarly for a 36" dock, if the distance between centers of your support pipes are 33.5 to 38.5 the 36" kit will fit fine.   Second, if your support pipes are 1-1/2" nominal pipe, they will slide right into the axle adapters.   If you measure the outside diameter of your support pipes and they measure either 2" or just under, they will fit nicely.

Q:  Will those poly dock wheels crush under the weight of the dock?  Will they make the dock buoyant?
A:  Our dock wheels are the best wheels on the market and can support a weight of 600lbs each, so no, they will not crush under normal use.   They also have water inlet holes on the outside walls. This means your dock wheels will fill with water as you roll them in and drain as you roll them back out.

Q:  What tools will I need to install the roll in kit?  Do I have to drill or modify anything?
A:  The only tools you'll need are a 3/4" wrench and (2) 1/2" wrenches.  There is no drilling or modifying required.

Q:  What is the longest dock I could roll in?  How many roll-in kits per dock?
A:  This one is going to depend on both the dock you're outfitting with the roll in kit, as well as the person doing the rolling.   Typically 1 kit per 16ft pier is the maximum one would want to go, but it wouldn't be unreasonable to go more or less depending on the circumstances.   The more dock wheels the better!
