How does a swing style Jockey Wheel work?
To help you understand the design and function of a swing jockey wheel for your needs, we’ve outlined its main components below. These include:
Frame: The frame is the main structure that holds the wheel and allows it to pivot. It’s usually made of metal, such as steel or aluminium, to provide strength and support.
Mounting bracket: This attaches the jockey wheel to the trailer or caravan. It may be bolted or welded onto the front of the trailer, and it typically includes a mechanism for raising and lowering the jockey wheel.
Swivel mechanism: This allows the jockey wheel to pivot 360 degrees, providing manoeuvrability in any direction. It typically consists of a ball joint or other type of bearing that allows the wheel to rotate freely.
Wheel: Made from rubber, this is the part of the jockey wheel that comes into contact with the ground to provide support and manoeuvrability.
Handle: Used to raise and lower the jockey wheel. It’s typically located near the mounting bracket and may be designed to fold down or otherwise be out of the way when not in use.
Overall, the design of a swing jockey wheel is intended to provide support, manoeuvrability, and ease of use when hitching and unhitching your trailer or caravan.
