Trailer Bunk Slicks : I recently rebuilt my trailer. I used carriage bolts for the bunks but now I need to cover the holes where the bolts go down through? What would you suggest?

Not sure what you mean by covering the holes. If you recessed the bolt head and are trying to cover the resulting depression you can either just cover it with all weather carpet again or use bunk slicks.

Thanks Doug, I appreciate the response. I did as you mentioned as well but the hole in the carpet is what I was referring to. I will buy a set of the slicks for each end of the bunk where the carriage bolts where installed. That will keep the carpet from tearing open any further.

I tightened the carriage bolts where they sunk into the wood and were flush with the face of the board. I did not try to fill in the small indention were the head of the bolt was. Anyway, the slicks have worked great.
