Marine –auto-Cumbria folding sib wheels

 

Before I review the product I would like to say how helpful I found Marine –auto-Cumbria when I phoned them for advice I found them very knowledgeable and helpful

 

Here is my review of folding sib wheels by Marine –auto-Cumbria

 The first thing you notice is the quality these are superb in every way the folding arm and fixing bracket are made from marine grade stainless steel with a stainless spring loaded locking mechanism only the best quality materials have been used

This is a comprehensive kit including 2 wheels 2 brackets 2 folding arms and a full fixing kit the wheels are nylon hubs and rubber tube tyres each wheel has 2 sets of bearings securely fitted inside making them both hard wearing and easier to move

Image description

The fixing kit contains 8 marine grade stainless steel bolts 8 stainless steel nylock nuts 8 large stainless steel washers and 8 protective rubber bolt caps every thing you need to attach the folding wheels is included

The swivel locking bracket is superbly engineered very solid and well made with no sharp corners.

The internal stainless steel spring locking mechanism is both easy to operate and has a solid feel

Image description

Attaching the wheel kit is quite an easy task offering up the bracket (note rounded corners to the bottom of the sib) mark the sib with a suitable marking pen marking the bracket and drill hole positions

Drill all 4 holes using a suitable size drill bit and insert all 4 bolts in to the bracket holes

Once tightened car the bolts with the rubber bolt caps

Image description

The wheels once mounted can be swivelled to the deployed locked position with a quick snap in to place this then locks the wheels in the deployed position with the spring locking mechanism locking the wheels firmly in position

Image description

When the wheels are not needed (while on the water) they can be locked in the up right position safely out of the way
