Default Trailer Bearing Part Help

I have a tiedown 3500lb axle on my boat trailer, rather than using a cotter pin to hold on the spindle nut, it has a washer that has a tab that you bed up between the segments on the nut. The ones on my trailer have come on and off a few times and need to be replaced.......only problem is that no one seems to be able to source them. Even the guy at napa looked at me like I was stupid when I showed it to him. Any ideas?

Oh I know what you are talking about........now where did I last see them?............................................. ....................................?????? For some reason I'm thinking the Misses old 98 Honda Accord had what you are describing (front or rear axles I'm not sure now)......you might want to give them a call. I would think the axle size should be pretty close.

Also compare that retainer to the ones used to hold a prop nut on....... Sending you a PM on an unrelated issue.....

finally sourced it locally from a truck supply shop that one of my coworkers frequents.......Tiedown was also very helpfull and is sending me a pair free of charge, said that this typically is a piece that last for years. Of course I waited until the last minute to repack my bearings.
