If you notice unusual vibrations shortly after take-off, it is advisable to inspect your landing gear U-bolt. To do this quickly, open the two small bolt access caps located under the carpet, between the door and outer seat rail (left and right).If you observe any broken or missing nuts, it indicates the need for a new U-bolt. It is crucial to address this promptly to avoid risking damage to the expensive aluminum gear forging. In fact, Cessna has issued Service Bulletin SE78-68, which recommends regular U-bolt inspections and replacement every 1000 hours to prevent failure.The U-bolt can be replaced in the field without requiring special tools. Ensure that you follow the torque specifications outlined in your aircraft's technical manual, taking care not to overtighten it to prevent breakage during taxiing on rough terrain.I personally use these U-bolts for skydiving operations on a grass airfield, and they have performed flawlessly after hundreds of landings. Please note that the package includes one U-bolt, but washers and nuts are not included. It is a good idea to keep one U-bolt as a spare for your journey back to your home base.
Distinguishing itself from the original Cessna bolts, our U-bolts surpass them in quality and performance.

Through a hot-bending process and manual threading, we ensure that these U-bolts are free from any internal tension. This manufacturing approach guarantees enhanced durability and reliability for your Cessna's landing gear. Trust in our superior U-bolts to deliver the utmost strength and peace of mind during your flights.
