I have demonstrated this at the last two Alumapaloozas. So far, not a single one has backed out again after this repair.

The 1/8" is diameter? 1/2" is length?
What is parrbond?

Dynamic balancer for wheels. Cut down on vibration and tire wear, at least per the advertising. I got a set and the trailer seems to ride smoother but it didn't solve my hing pin problem.
