Preventing rod end failures has been a high priority goal for Seals-it, ever since the company’s inception. Rod end seals were in fact, the product that got Seals-it onto the manufacturing business many years ago. The product evolved as the result of a couple of untimely rod end failures on Skip Matczak’s racecars, and his commitment that it would not happen again. In keeping with this goal, Seals-it now offers the RODOBAL line of rod end “boots”. In certain cases the fully enclosed boot may best satisfy the needs of an application where anything less than complete rod end isolation from the elements will not provide the desired protection.

We currently offer boots in five metric sizes: 8mm, 10mm, 14mm, 19mm, and 29mm. The five sizes, because of the flexibility of the rubber, fit one quarter inch through one-inch English size rod end. The same boot fits, either a male or female application.
