Rod ends are a type of bearing that can be fitted into either a male or female rod connector. They are designed with a head shaped like an eye and have an integral shank that creates a housing, along with a bearing which can be one of a number of different styles.
At Simply Bearings we have a range of rod end bearings in both maintenance required and maintenance free versions, including steel female rod ends, so you can choose the precise model that you need for your specifications.
Some of the steel female rod end bearings that we have available are classed as maintenance required styles and these have an unsealed design, which means that they'll require occasional maintenance and re-lubrication. These typically have a dedicated lubrication point to make it simpler to insert lubricant into the necessary areas.
We can also supply maintenance free steel female rod ends, which have a double lip seal to stop moisture and dirt from contaminating the bearing. They are not completely maintenance free, though, and may require re-lubrication at certain times, in order to extend the lifespan of the product and ensure it performs as effectively as possible.
Steel female rod end bearings can be used in many different situations and are well suited to heavy alternating or static loads, as well as shock loads. They are available in both left and right handed versions and are quick and simple to remove and replace when necessary.
The full range of steel female rod ends that are in stock at Simply Bearings can be dispatched on the same day you place your order, if you do so before our delivery cut off time. There is a free delivery service available on almost all of our products, so you don't need to add in extra charges.
Our website is easy to navigate and search through, making it simple to locate exactly the right product that you need. However, if you do order the wrong type of steel female rod end bearings by mistake or you find that they're not up to your expectations, you can return them to us within 90 days for a full refund or exchange, as long as they meet the terms of our guarantee.
