Video Transcript for Fulton Trailer Coupler FHDPW330300 Review

Today were going to review part number FHDPW330300. This is the Fulton Fold Away Coupler Hinge Kit for a 3-inch-by-3-inch trailer tongue. This hinge kit lets you create up to a 40-inch foldaway tongue for your trailer. It can be used with actuators or standard couplers so that your trailer can be stored even in the smallest garage. It is a weld on installation, which will create a clean look. The unique offset design guarantees superior performance.

It is made of a sturdy steel construction and it is a raw finish. The pivot bolt and the pivot pin and clip are included. Now this coupler hinge kit is not for use on aluminum trailer frames. This part is made in the USA. Again, the application would be 3-inch-by-3-inch trailer tongue.

It does come with a five-year limited warranty. Now the capacity will depend on the maximum pivot length that youll be using it on. The capacity would be up to 5000 pounds. What youll want to do is when you go the product page for this part number therell be a table listed on that product page and that will show you the gross trailer weight capacity for whatever the maximum pivot length would be. Basically, the pivot length would be if you have your coupler here and the tongues put into this end, you would measure from the center of the coupler ball to the furthest pivot hole, which would be right here.

If that distance would be like 24 inches that would be the pivot length, that would give you 5000-lb weight capacity. If it is longer, if it would go to 48 inches, that would drop your maximum capacity down to about 2500 pounds. Again, the best thing would be to go to the chart on the product page of this part number. Just to show you briefly how this would work, to make it pivot you would just pull the pin or the clip out and then pull the pin out right here. That will allow the hinge coupler to rotate out of the way.

If you have this mounted with your coupler over here, youd be able to bring your coupler and trailer tongue back folded away. Then when you need to tow with it you just put it back in. Drop your pin in. Insert the clip and you would be ready to go. Again, this part has as five-year limited warranty. That should do it for part number FHDPW330300. .

I purchased this Fold- Away Coupler Hinge for my Kayak trailer project I'm getting ready to do. The quality of this is piece is very good and I received it faster than advertised. This product will allow me to extend the tongue on my trailer and it will fold out of the way when parked.121536

When you have a 19 foot trailer and a 17 foot garage, this is the answer to your problem! It took less than an hour for the pros to cut the tongue and weld the fold away into place. You do have to be careful not to toast the wiring and be prepared to cut and splice it. My jon boat now sits straight in the garage with a golf cart parked next to it and room to walk around both of them. Perfect!102005

I had the hinge welded on my trailer by a professional welder. I have had the boat and trailer out several times since, and the hinge performed beautifully. I am still very happy to have bought from you. Thank you.

  • Lanuage for fitting Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit FHDPW330300
  • Couplers are the foremost part of the trailer that attaches to the hitch ball. Actuators are trailer couplers that are normally on boats and have a surge break system built in. Standard couplers are couplers without brakes. The Fulton Fold-Away Hinge Kit is the weld on version and there is a bolt on version available to create a foldaway tongue for a 3 inch by 3 inch trailer frame. We also carry both versions for the 3 inch by 4 inch trailer frame. When determining the maximum pivot length

  • Length of Fulton Fold-Away Hinge Kit, part # FHDPW330300
  • I went out to our warehouse and measured this. The hinge is 4 inches deep at the longest angle. At the shortest, it is 3-1/4 inches long.

  • The Weld-On Fulton Fold-Away Hinge Kit for 3" x 3" Trailer Tongue, item # FHDPW330300, is constructed of cast steel. All welding must be performed by a certified AWS welder.

  • For a 3 inch by 3 inch bolt on trailer tongue hinge kit you will need to use the Fulton Bolt On Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, # FHDPB330301. This hinge kit is designed to bolt on without welding and allows you to create up to a 48 inch long foldaway tongue on your boat trailer, depending on the gross trailer weight and max tongue weight of the trailer. I added a chart that shows the GTW, TW and Maximum Pivot Length for the # FHDPB330301 fold-away. You should always install the fold -away at th

  • Where Does the Trailer Jack Install on a Trailer if it has a Hinge Coupler
  • You will want to put the trailer jack between the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit # FHDPW330300 that you referenced and the frame of the trailer. If you had the jack on the side of the hinge that pivots it would make it unstable and difficult to pivot the tongue of the coupler. Not only would it make things much more difficult, but the hinge is designed to only support weight when it is locked out straight as both sides of hinge will have support to carry the weight.
