Best Industrial Rubber Bumpers

A bumper can be used as door stop, drawer stop, vibrating equipment stop or furniture feet. The industrial rubber will save you a lot of repair and maintenance costs.

What Customers Say:

“I installed this to as front impact bumper for my sail boat slip because I was not happy with using fenders. This is quite a heavy bumper but works beautifully when landing in heavy downwind conditions. I mounted it to a board with 3 carriage bolts and installed the board with an additional 3 carriage bolts on each end. Very secure.” ~ Deryk Johnston

What Customers Say:

“The first truck to back into the set we bolted on the dock crushed the rubber into pieces - had to replace with solid rubber type bumper. Of course this happened 2 days after the 30 day return policy expired...” ~ By Michael Largeteauon October 15, 2014

“This bumper is very tough. I used 2 of them to replace the bumpers on a 24 foot box truck. Worked very well. Each comes with two steel plates with holes in them for the bolts to provide extra holding power. The hole in the outside of the bumper is big enough to fit a socket through to tighten. The holes are large enough for an impact socket also which makes it easier.” ~ By Dean Trombettaon February 25, 2013
