What is/how can I find this type of bracket? (pic inside)


Hello all,

New here and hoping someone might be able to identify this type of bracket and let me know where I can get two of them. This is a bracket to attach a Jet Ski Ride-on Dock to permanent dock.

The flat part attaches to the permanent dock. The round part of this bracket allows a 4 inch PVC pipe to move up and down with the water levels. That PVC pipe goes through an opening on the Ride-on dock so the Ride-on dock can move up and down as needed.

I need two of these and it will cost over $100 for the full assembly kit from the ride-on dock manufacturer.

Is this a specialty type of bracket made specifically for Jet Ski docks, or is this something I can purchase somewhere online for much cheaper? If I can find this bracket, I can just make my own with some PVC pipe.

Thanks for any help!

I was at menards the other day and saw quite a bit of dock kits and parts, ut not sure if theyll have exactly what you need.

Here is something similar but only for 3" and they are $43 a pop so $100 doesn't sound too bad.

Try a fencing company or the fence department in your local home improvement store: http://www.lowes.com/pl_Post+hinge_4...uantity_sold|1

Or even auto parts store: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...h&pageNumber=2

I guess it depends on how handy you are.

Seems though like exhaust straps would work: http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performan...ductId=1256861

Marine supply stores or websites...but like gmhammes said, $100 doesn't sound bad. The marine industry seems to assume that if you have any kind of boat you have alot of $...
