Why you may need an adapter:

CAUTION: The Power Caster does NOT attach to the ball on the trailer, doing so is not 100% safe or reliable, on any dolly. It was originally designed (in 1967) for the crank-up jack on the trailer to sit into the cup above the Power Caster tire. The Power Caster comes with 4 sleeves (a bushing set) to allow you to adjust for different size crank-up jacks. If you cannot use a jack OR choose not to use the jack in this manner you will need an adapter.

The reason we suggest you drill holes through the frame or weld for the adapters and offer nothing that can clamp on is because there is no guarantee that a clamp won’t slip. Customers have made clamp-ons themselves, but it is not something we will do. When attaching it to the crank-up jack, as long as the crank-up jack retracts all the way up (hangs down no further than 3″) the chances of bending it are slim. The only time people bend their jacks is if it is a very heavy trailer or if it is being done wrong.
