Instructions for Vertical Snapon Bumper | Instructions for Half Round Bumpers FeatherLITE Frame

Choose from horizontal or vertical bumpers and a variety of edge protection.

DuraLITE docks offer snap-on vertical or horizontal 36″ polyethylene bumpers, as well as adjustable post mount bumpers.

Our 36″ Half Round bumpers are available for mounting on any of our docks. Drill and through bolt to mount on any wood docks, DuraLITE docks, or FeatherLITE docks manufactured prior to 2012. For FeatherLITE docks made in 2012 or later, use the center track with slot mounting hardware.

Corner bumpers can be screwed to DuraLITE docks or wood docks. These are not recommended for FeatherLITE docks. Use a corner wheel bumper or extend regular horizontal bumpers to the corners on FeatherLITE docks.

Wood post bumpers are an affordable solution to protecting your boat while maintaining a rustic appearance. These are available with pressure treated or red cedar lumber, and in 36″ or 46″ lengths.

Plastic post bumpers (pipe mount) are our most popular choice for protecting boats and docks on any of our pipe leg docks, DuraLITE, FeatherLITE, or wood docks. Our unique post bumpers offer two forms of adjustment, on the pole, or on the back track. This affords you more protection range for fluctuating water depths.

Edge Guard and C-shape fender are an affordable way to protect wood docks. Simply nail on with stainless steel or galvanized ring shank roofing nails every 6-8″ on top and bottom. Note: Edgeguard does not work with overlap decking where boards extend beyond the outsides of the frame. For attaching to aluminum docks, we suggest self drilling tek screws. Since the life of an aluminum dock is longer than edgeguard, more permanent bumpers are recommended.

Torpedo post bumpers are an affordable bumper option to cover the hardware area of a stationary pipe dock. They slip down over the post and wrap the hardware. These can also be used on outside corners of DuraLITE and FeatherLITE docks, but they will not fit the broad flat side of our aluminum docks as the poles are internal to the frame.

Wheel bumpers are available for pole mount, wood corner mount, and wood face mount. These are ideal for problem spots where you need your boat to bump and roll. The impact zone for this type of bumper is above the dock surface, not below.

Boat fenders are also available for a softer buffer between the boat and the dock. We offer three sizes, and colors of white or blue.
