Fitting the Mudguard

How to fit your mudguard

If you’re wondering whether HMD trailers come with mudguards, the answer is yes. In fact, Neil from HMD trailers is here to show you exactly how they’re fitted onto the trailers. The mudguards come pre-drilled, and the assembly and certification are necessary for the certificate of conformity. However, you don’t need to worry about any of this because HMD trailers will have already fitted the mudguards for you when you purchase the trailer.

The process of fitting the mudguards is quite simple, with two bolts at the front and two bolts at the rear. Neil admits that it can be a bit challenging to find the holes at times. Especially if you don’t have your glasses on, but it’s nothing that can’t be handled.

During the fitting process, Neil drops a nut and washer. This is where things start to get interesting. He makes a joke about why it’s always a good idea to have someone else who knows what they’re doing when it comes to handling tools.

Fitting the second mudguard

The second mudguard is also fitted in a similar fashion, Neil is quite fond of the process. He says it keeps him out of mischief, even if he does drop nuts and bolts. He makes a funny analogy about feeling like a squirrel when he can’t find his nuts.

Neil also advises that it’s always a good idea to double-check everything with a trusty ratchet. Especially if you’ve had workmen who have used a hammer on all the drills. As this can ruin all the bolts and screws. This will ensure that everything is tight, and you won’t have any issues with your mudguard coming off while driving on the motorway.

In the end, Neil concludes that fitting mudguards on trailers is a simple and straightforward process. He even shares a bit of trivia about a famous chef named Keith FloydKeith used to talk to his cameramen during his cooking shows. In Neil’s case, his cameraperson is called Jane, and he asks her to get a close-up of the mudguard once it’s fitted.

Overall, HMD trailers come with pre-drilled mudguards, and they’re already fitted when you purchase the trailer. If you ever need to fit them yourself, it’s a simple process. It only requires a few bolts and a trusty ratchet. And, of course, it’s always good to have someone who knows what they’re doing with tools.
