4WD Swing Away Hub

The Couplemate™ 4WD Swing Away Spare Wheel hub is a swing-away flangeless hub with bearing cones.

Product Specifications

Couplemate™ manufactures Swing Away Hubs from K1040, a high-grade Australian steel. This is the same grade of steel used for stub axles, as seen in the 4WD Swing Away Rear Kits, as this ensures a sturdy and quality product.

The kits contain NSK-branded inner and outer bearings cones, our Australian-made dust Caps, and seals.

Use tapered roller bearings on trailer and caravan axles as they handle a variety of awkward weights (such as spare wheels, jerry cans, trailer lifts, etc.).

Replace 4WD swing-away spare wheel carrier if the weight exceeds the bearing limitations. This results in assembly collapse, and if such, replace it with the non-bearing type carrier.

Couplemate™ recommends either the 45mm Slimline or 45mm Parallel model due to the added load caused by the fulcrum effect on the rear bar.

Installation Note

Bearing cups are already machined into the hub. If you are replacing the bearings for any reason, do not insert new cups into the hub.
