Adapter-Mount - Grip Tight

With its patent pending pull/push adapter system, fully concentric 360˚ inner ring, and completely interchangeable housing design, the Dodge Grip Tight Adapter ball bearing is the easy-on/ easy/off solution for damage free shafting, reduced vibration, and greater cost/inventory savings. The new Grip Tight Adapter ball bearing is shaft-ready right out of the box and offered in a variety of housing styles for normal and medium duty operations. It accommodates commercial grade and some undersize shafting to lower costs, and all Grip Tight Adapter assemblies fit into a standard Dodge ball bearing housing. Plus this new Dodge bearing has been specifically engineered to run at higher speeds and operate cooler for longer grease life. In test comparisons, the new Grip Tight  Adapter ball bearing even proved it could suppress fretting corrosion and scarring to shafts and journals, thus saving not only time but added labor/maintenance costs.

Easy-On / Easy-Off
During mounting, the patent pending collar/inner ring system locks the tapered adapter sleeve under the bearing and onto the shaft. To dismount, the built in bearing puller pulls the bearing off the adapter and pushes the adapter in the opposite direction (out from under the bearing).
