Optitec Clamps

Optitec Pty Ltd manufactures the V3 Remote Control Jockey Wheel and we also manufacture after market U-bolt-on Jockey Wheel Clamps to suit all different configurations of trailer drawbar.

The OW-6 is a Heavy Duty Double Clamp Bracket to suit a chassis drawbar up to 150mm x 150mm. This is the most commonly used unit for a 50mm x 150mm (or 2” x 6” imperial) caravan chassis. The OW-7 fits a chassis of up to 100mm x 100mm and is commonly used for the 50mm x 100mm (or 2” x 4” imperial) caravan chassis. The OW-8 fits a chassis drawbar up to 130mm x 130 mm and suits most Jayco caravans that have the 50mm x 125mm (or 2” x 5” imperial) chassis drawbar.

Optitec also have two Compact Double Clamp Brackets, the OW-14 which is designed for chassis of from 100mm up to 130mm, and the OW-15, which is designed for the 150mm chassis. The Compact Double Clamps are designed to bolt onto the chassis of caravans and can accommodate weight distribution bars without interference. The OW-18 is a specially designed Compact Double Clamp for Alko Chassis and is supplied with three high tensile bolts, washers and nyloc nuts for secure mounting to the drawbar.

1. Fit each of the two Clamps to the Plate using the 4 Bolts, 4 Flat washers, 4 Spring washers making sure both clamps have the jockey wheel tightening “handle” facing the same way (so that they both “open” in the same direction) – it doesn’t matter if they both open to the front or to the back.

2. Place the two U Bolts over the Chassis Rails on your van in the spot where you wish to mount the Double Bracket.

3. Place the Double Bracket Plate over the 2 U Bolts.

4. Place a Flat Washer over each of the 4 U Bolts followed by a Spring Washer and then attach a Hex Nut to each of these 4 U Bolts

5. Tighten the Nuts using a spanner (19mm)

6. The U Bolt threaded section may need to be cut off because they are a ‘universal’ size to allow fitting to all sizes of trailer chassis.

Optitec Compact Double Clamp Bracket Installation

The Optitec Compact Double Clamp Brackets are designed to fit in the tightest spaces on caravan drawbars.

These Compact Clamps are only 140mm wide so they can be mounted anywhere on the chassis and are perfect for Caravans using the Weight Distribution Bars.

The OW-14 fits a chassis drawbar of between 50mm x 10mm up to 50mm x 140mm so this is ideal for all Jayco Caravans.

The OW-15 fits a chassis drawbar of 50mm x 150mm so it’s ideal for the biggest caravans
