They do indeed, and are even a reasonable price compared with a new set of bearings every season.

I have just looked at Indespension website for bearing buddies. Is it one size fits all? it quotes a 50.25mm diam, would these fit my Bramber Rollercoater trailor? if so, seems a good idea & Ill pick some up on next visit.

Cheers all

no get in touch with the trailer manufacturer and ask where to get the right ones from. They are all slightly different. My snipe would not take an indespension set...snipe ones cost about 20

Cheers JW I had been searching for "bearing buddy"and all it cam up with was american suppliers .
bearing saver took me to indispension site and others .

My hub is 50.25mm but it is indispension . The kestrel site required a vernier measurement and said there were lots of different sizes .

My trailer is nearly new probably only been dunked half a dozen times and the grease in the hub is allready looking like coffee creme

Talk to the guy at Kestrel as he lots of advice to offer. If you send him your grease cap he will fit the bearing buddy to your exact size. Basically it is a very good piece of kit and the pressure release valve ensures you do not blow out the back seal with too many pumps of the grease gun -fully recommended!

I see the indispension site also has a heavy duty seal for use with the bearing saver , Gota go find out what size hub I have now , I guess they are worth fitting for the sake of a few quid .

That works, up until you get a bearing that is failing. Then you can't check again until your fingers heal.
