installation instructions And specs For complete information.
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 selected the weld on application for its clean appearance. The added expense of using a certified welder for the installation was well worth it, I'm very satisfied with the product and it looks as if it was factory installed. Always a pleasure dealing with etrailer and your prompt service. 286500
One year ago I had a friend weld the fold away coupler onto my ShoreLand'r trailer because my boat would not fit in the garage. Now I can put the boat in a secured place and leave all of my gear in it without fear of anything walking off and the convenience of not having to move things in and out all of the time. I have pulled the boat many miles since then without any issues , thanks etrailer this has been a well worth purchase. Ken B. Wonder Lake, IL 247680

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 purchased folding tongue hinge a year ago. Needed it so i could close door on garage. Took to a weld shop it went on and welded togather with fram easily. I have pulled my boat many times and no problems. Make sure you install the rubber stops to limit play. Only complaint is it rust up if not painted. 299407

Received in just 4 days. Product fit was excellent. Very good quality,heavy duty. The box was missing the rubber bumpers to keep the two pieces from rattling but when I called to get them to send them to me they said not to worry I didn't need them. So why is it in the install sheet??? 236381
THE BEST CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. This is a company going places. Other companies need to take note from these guys on what customer service is about. Outstanding!!! Great service, fast shipping, everything was packaged well, and quality products. 222099
