Fast 15 minute easy-on/easy-off GRIP TIGHT adaptor mount system for damage-free shafting.

Bores 17 - 85mm and 1/2" - 3 1/2".

DODGE GRIP TIGHT EASY-ON/EASY-OFF
During mounting, the patent pending collar/inner ring system locks the tapered adaptor sleeve into the bearing and onto the shaft. To dismount, the built in bearing puller pulls the bearing off the adaptor and pushes the adaptor in the opposite direction (out from the bearing).
Off the shelf and shaft ready, the Dodge GRIP TIGHT adaptor mount ball bearing is offered for normal and medium duty in a variety of housing styles, including pillow block; tapped base; two-, three-, and four-bolt flange; piloted flange; take-up. Also available in E-Z KLEEN polymer or stainless steel housing styles. Please refer to E-Z KLEEN product for more information.
LESS PRODUCT INVENTORY FOR SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS
With Dodge GRIP TIGHT adaptor ball bearings, you can reduce your inventory as much as 25%-45%. Rather than inventory a complete line of individual bore sizes for each housing style, you can now purchase a housing assembly and adaptors separately, with the adaptor determining the bore size within a housing series.
DAMAGE FREE SHAFTING
The new Dodge GRIP TIGHT adaptor bearing features a unique adapter-mount design that is specifically developed to withstand axial forces that are generated during mounting or dismounting. The adaptor attaches itself to the shaft for full concentric contact-360º through the length of the bearing. This provides superior holding power, as well as suppresses fretting corrosion and vibration.
In test comparisons, a setscrew mounted bearing promotes shaft fretting corrosion and scarring. But the new Dodge GRIP TIGHT adaptor bearing comes off the shaft quickly and reveals no shaft fretting corrosion or scarring. There is no need to recondition your shaft so you save time and avoid added labor/maintenance.
FULL CONTACT ON SHAFT FOR BETTER GRIP, LESS VIBRATION
Setscrew locking can distort the inner ring and cause system induced vibration. But with the new Dodge GRIP TIGHT, the adaptor attaches itself to the shaft for full concentric contact 360° through the length of the bearing.
DODGE PROGUARD SEALING SYSTEM
Proven land-riding contact seal with steel shield protection. This highly effective positive seal design assures uniform lip contact with the inner ring to seal out contaminants and seal in lubricants. Single-lip contact seal with flingers (standard), low-torque labyrinth seal (optional).
