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 love my Fulton break away coupler. I did not buy it to save room in my garage. I bought it for a theft deterrent for my cargo trailer. I had it professionally installed and it works like a charm. Take the tongue end with me every time I unhook. Quality product and etrailer was a pleasure to do business with.

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

Ask the Experts about this Fulton Trailer Coupler
Do you have a question about this Trailer Coupler?


  • Should I Use a Bolt On or a Weld on Fold Away Coupler On a Shorelander Trailer with 3x3 Frame
  • I more or less agree with you. The Fulton Fold-Away Hinge Kit for 3 x 3 inch Trailer Tongue - Weld-On, item # FHDPW330300, is a cleaner look and if you got a bad weld job you would not have a safe setup. I have done some welding, I am in no way a professional weldor, and in my limited experience a good weld will not fail before the steel it is welded to will fail. If you like the clean look of the weld on I would have a certified weldor perform the operation. If you take the trailer to...

  • Installation of Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Kit # FHDPW350300 and Will it Work On an Aluminum Trailer
  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Bolt on Fold-Away Hinge Kit for a 3 inch by 3inch boat Trailer Tongue
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Installation and Quality Details of the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, # FHDPB330301
  • When the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit, # FHDPB330301, is in the closed position, it measures 7-1/2 inches long. Each end of the trailer tongue will go in at least 3 inches and is held in place by 4 bolts a piece. When properly installed, the hinge will not degrade the integrity of the trailer or lower its capacity. If you stay within the capacity and do not overload the trailer you should not have bending or cracking problems. If the pivot length is at the maximum of 34 inches,...

  • 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...

  • Differences Between the Fulton Coupler Hinge Kits FHDPB330301 and FHDPB330303
  • The difference between the two Fulton Swing Away kits you referenced is the material that is used for each of the kits. Other than that they are the same and are designed to fit 3 inch by 3 inch trailer tongues. The # FHDPB330301 is made of stainless steel which will resist corrosion and the part # FHDPW330300 is made of a raw steel which will corrode much easier. You could paint either kit if you like.

  • Fold-Away Hinge Kit for a Trailer with 2 inch By 3 Inch Tongue
  • We do have a fold away coupler that will work on your trailer tongue that is 2 inches by 3 inches and that is the Fulton # FHDPB230101. This coupler will install on your trailer tongue and has a cacity of up to 5,000 pounds. Please note that the tongue material thickness must be between 0.188 and 0.120 inches for installation purposes. The fold away coupler that you referenced # FHDPW330300 is intended for use on trailer tongues that are 3 inches by 3 inches and I would not recommend...

  • Weld-On Fold-Away Coupler Hinge for 3x3 Inch Trailer Tongue
  • Technically you could weld on the bolt-on hinge # FHDPB330301, but instead, just use the weld-on version, # FHDPW330300. The bolt-on one is not meant to be welded on so the warranty would be voided if not installed the way it was intended. Plus the actual weld-on one costs less. The other issue is that the bolt-on version is zinc coated so that could cause some toxic gasses to be released when welding.

This is an unusual tongue size and we do not offer any folding couplers in this size.

  • Availability of 21 Inch Long Fold-Away Trailer Coupler
  • Although we do not offer a Fold Away Coupler in a 21 inch length, if the frame on the trailer tongue is 3 inches by 3 or 4 inches, we offer bolt or weld on hinge kits that would allow you to have a 21 inch long folding portion. I'll include links to the part numbers, which can be found below.
