We've seen bearings in unforgiving applications last over 50 years. If you treat them well, they'll last just as long for you.

 

See the below instructions to ensure a long life for your bearing.

HOW TO INSTALL A THRUST BEARING

 

WHAT IS A THRUST BEARING?

A thrust bearing is a type of rotary bearing. They are like other bearings because they permit rotation between parts, but they are specifically designed to support a high axial load while rotating. view resource

THRUST BEARING COMPONENTS PROVIDED BY TRIANGLE

  • 12” and 3” lazy susan turntables (12C and 3C)
  • Carriage bolt (length needed depends on thickness of both base and rotating surface)
  • Washer (7976)

THRUST BEARING COMPONENTS PROVIDED BY CUSTOMER

  • Carriage bolt (size determined by overall depth of: rotating surface, base and the two turntable bearings). The bolt will need clearance underneath the 3C for added nuts
  • Locking nut or two nut system

THRUST BEARING KIT COMPONENT DEPTHS

  • 12" lazy susan turntable (12C) depth: 0.219"
  • 3" lazy susan turntable (3C) depth: 0.313"
  • Washer (7976) depth: .060"

BENEFITS OF THRUST BEARINGS

  • Impedes the free spin of the parts
  • Prevents slide force on tall tops from pulling the bearing apart
  • Prevents damage to the 12” bearing during shipping
