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 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.

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 received my Hinge Kit yesterday as promised. Was a little surprised their were no papers of instructions included but it was a very basic no brainer installing. From the time I hauled out the welder, cut the tongue , welded both halves of the hinge, ground a little, and painted it was 45 minutes complete. This is a simple no nonsense, super strong assemble that I'm completely happy with. As you can see from the pictures I had a problem, this was a great discovery and solution. I'd give it a 10, A+ and an excellent. Capt. Lar 102545

Installation was easy. I installed it in a Shorland'r trailer. It took me about 2 - 3 hours including clean-up. I am 100% satisfied! All the hardware, Torx drive, prick punch and safety stickers were included. Instructions were clear and easy to follow, but I was surprised it called for torque of 75Lbs. on each bolt. Tools used were a pencil, square, high tension hack saw (18TPI), file, prick punch (included), hammer, safety glasses, 18V portable drill w/ 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 & 1/2 bits, Torx socket (included), 3/4 box-end wrench, 12" adjustable wrench & torque wrench. I also added a sheath to the wiring to reduce any chaffing that may occur across the new hardware. You may want to consider additional safety chains depending on haw far back you reinstall them on the tongue. One other note: The 3x3 box tube tongue on my trailer was a bit small. The coupler easily slid over the 3x3 box tube. I had to draw up the bolts to ensure a tight fit. I used a large adjustable wrench on the Torx socket with a small length of pipe on the end of the wrench (for mechanical advantage purposes). It drew up and tightened just fine. Overall, it was an easy install. It did exactly what I bought it to do! 62289

Your product was a tremendous package. The trailer I installed it on carries a 1976 Cobalt 19DV that I have owned since new. The trailer is a Calkins single axle 4000lbGW. I have paid over 15K in storage fees for the over 37 years I have owned this boat. I wasn't aware of a product like this until I happened to see a trailer at a Bass Pro Shop in Branson MO while on a vacation trip. The trailer had a swing tongue not your product but it got me thinking and after returning home I found your product on the internet. Can't believe how great the application fit and the ease of installation(after drilling holes of course). I have on single car garage that I tried to store the boat in but the tongue was to long to be able to close the door. After this installation the trailer fits perfect. Great product would recommend to anyone. 94600

This hinge was exactly what I was looking for. My boat would not fit in the garage straight in or even at a shallow enough angle to park a car next to it. After a couple of hours of labor(FUN). The boat fits nicely on its side of the garage. I like projects that are rewarding once completed. The hinge is beautiful, and looks like it belongs on the trailer. The quality of materials was remarkable, and the fit was perfect. I have no concerns with this product failing whatsoever. Be careful not to cut your trailer wiring when sawing through the tongue. I needed a new plug on that end anyways, so no heartache here. I have read another review that stated this hinge was not sturdy and rattled. The only explanation I could see with the reason for that is not installing the rubber stoppers on the hinge per the instructions. The fit after installing the rubber was snug. It takes a little effort to close the hinge with the rubber stoppers installed and results in a tight connection. The picture of the product on this website shows the nuts on the top and bottom (outside) of the hinge, in the instructions it has you install them the other way, which leads to a cleaner looking end product. I will tell everyone I know that owns a boat about this product. 20770

I purchased this folding trailer tongue device so that I could park my 16' Boston Whaler Dauntless in the garage and still have room for a car. It worked just fine and I can tell no difference in the way the trailer tows. It is very sturdy device and I have complete cofidence in its strength. I must admit I was a bit anxious about cutting my trailer tongue (31"), but it worked fine. I used a circular saw with a metal blade first and then finished the cut with a saw jaws. After that a good drill and bits are critical. The directions were good and I followed them closely. I wish I had done it last year, my car would not have had to stay outside. 33004

Just completed installation of trailer tongue hinge and could not be more pleased with the result. This saved 3ft off orig trailer length and allows boat to now easily fit in the garage - just in time for winter. Installation went smoothly - the instructions and on-site vids were extremely helpful in avoiding issues. I'd caution anyone to take heed of the safety cautions - esp. eye protection - when cutting and drilling. Results were fantastic. Hinge is a high quality, solid product - extremely pleased. Item shipped and arrived early, customer service is first rate and I will def be ordering from etrailer again. Highly recommend. 108869

Excellent product. Service was great. Ordered on a Friday night and had it by Wednesday. Altogether, install takes roughly two hours. Recommend having a good saw and good bits to make it go as smooth as possible. Bottom line, I can now finally shut my garage door all the way. Highly recommend this product to anyone looking to make a swing tongue without having to pay $300 to have a shop do it. 125979

Bought a used boat and it needed to fit in the garage. This was the best option and it turned out great. The product details were a big help for the fit and installation. Took about 2 hours and make sure you have a good bit to drill the holes. I stumbled on to etrailers website and no need to look any further. It's hard not to get the right part with all the details and pictures they provide. I have bought several items and the quality is high, price is fair and ships on time.

I keep my boat in the garage which made for a tight fit to get into the house. I came across the Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit. - ordered it and installed it this weekend. The installation was much easier than I expected. Great communication from the folks at trailer.com Now the boat fits with more space to move around in the garage. My wife is happy - so I am happy! Great product! Photo attached - I just have to move the chains so they connect behind the coupler. 103680

This is a great product in concept, but not in execution. My friend installed one, which I liked. I needed to shorten my trailer by a few inches so I bought the kit too. I was able to shorten the trailer by 24 inches instead of only a few inches. When all was installed I tested it out, and the darn thing has so much wobble in it that I can easily get 1/2"-1" of up and down wobble at the coupler only 24 inches away. The casting and pins aren't a tight fit, and therefore the rating of the product is poor. I'm very disappointed and now I have a connection that scares me when I tow it. Not worth the convenience. 19298

I had a short boat on a long trailer so I cut some of the tongue off for easy trailering and storage in my shop. Then I got a longer boat and found myself having to put my truck in the water during low water season. I was going to weld the tongue back on until I found this product on the net. I received it quickly and it had everything I needed. It installed quickly and easy. I no longer have to back my truck in the water and I can still store it in my shop. Great product and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Etrailer. 60392

Works great in extending tongue length by 36" for ramps that are not steep. All wiring and safety chains contained inside tongue tube. Chains and wiring zip tied together so a simple pull on chain allows tongue to be moved to towing position. Allows Power Caster usage to place trailer in garage with tongue folded. 136644

I bought this product so that I could extend the tongue on one of my boat trailers. It installed quite easily and works really well. The construction seems super durable, which is what I was looking for. Now I can tow that boat with my minivan rather than huge truck. Since the tongue is extended the van doesn't come anywhere close to touching corrosive sea water. When I get home I just release the pin and rotate the tongue extension aft for efficient storage. 127882

I bought the fold away to extend the trailer by 3 feet. I pull my boat with a Tahoe and would have to put boots on to get back to the boat to release it. The extra 3 feet will solve that problem. A friend of mine did the welding and everything was straight forward as to how it centered up . I now have it painted and ready for service next week at Lake Shelbyville in IL. I also had to extend the wiring harness the same 3 feet. Thanks Ed. 84541

I had jack knifed my trailer and bent the tongue. This allowed me to cut out the bent section of the tongue and to install the fold away coupler. It does everything it is advertised to do. Once I got it installed it was great. It takes some work to drill the 16 holes and especially to tighten the 16 bolts. It definitely helps to have two people do the installation. Bottom line is it solved my problems. Thank you etrailer. 53065

As a machinist/pattern maker for over 25 years, this is a very nicely engineered casting. Their is not a square corner on this part, which is good, square corners tend to crack. All the cast flashing, especially on the inside, has been removed. Very clean look for a casting. Pin and bolt slide thru, good fit. I could have made this piece, but it would have cost me more than I can buy it for. 96293

  • The Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, Weld-On, part # FHDPW350300, is not for use on an aluminum frame trailer. It would need to be welded to a steel frame trailer. On an aluminum trailer you would need to check with the trailer manufacturer if a bolt-on hinge kit can be used. If it can, you can use the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, Bolt-On, part # FHDPB350101. This will fit the 3 inch x 5 inch tongue you have referenced. To install the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit,...

  • 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...

  • 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. When the hinge...

  • What Kind of Welding Is Required to Install Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit FHDPW230300
  • Wire feed welding would be the best welding method to secure the # FHDPW230300 hinge kit to your existing trailer tongue. To install the hinge, you would simply cut the tongue at the point at which you want it to pivot, and then slide the two sides of the hinges over the newly cut ends. They will slide on about 3 inches on each side. To determine the maximum pivot length for your particular trailer, I recommend taking a look at the chart on the product page for hinge kit # FHDPW330300. The...

  • Want Folding Coupler for Performance Brand Boat Trailer with 2-1/2-inch x 2-3/8-inch Trailer Tongue
  • Thank you for providing a photo of your trailer tongue to help illustrate its dimensions which you measured as 2-1/2-inches tall x 2-3/8-inches wide.
