Bearing savers

Anybody know of a UK supplier? Indespension don't make one to suit a 505 bearing and the other ones are USA based and shipping is expensive.
Anybody else I haven't found?

bearing savers

I bought mine from new forest trailers at cadnam,not too expensive,I had to trim them down slightly on a lathe to fit,all was well until I gave the trailer to indespension at locks heath for some work,they had the trailer several times to get the work they were doing right (another story)and when I finally got the trailer back,part of the lip of the hub which the bearing saver fits into had broken on both wheels,hence grease always leaked out after that,I can only assume a hefty mallet was used to refit them.
So my conclusion is that I would think twice before using bearing savers again.

Indespension say theirs don't fit anything other than their own hubs which are different from normal.

You can try http://www.trailerpartswarehouse.co.uk . When I spoke to them last they claim they can get most parts for most trailers.

They got all the bits I needed when I could not find them anywhere else.
