Video Transcript for Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028287 Review

Today were going to take a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock Coupler with low profile latch part number bd028287. This coupler is designed for two inch trailer balls as well as the standard 50 degree A-frame trailers. Its got the industry standard cut outs for mounting a jack and a large hole in the center for the body of the jack and three slotted holes for your bolt on hardware. This is a weld on coupler so when you attach it to your trailer youll just weld along the edges to secure the coupler. Were also going to go over one quick measurement and thats the overall length of the coupler and we get about 16 inches. Now were going to show you how the coupler mechanism works.

Theres a low profile latch here that pulls back our collar which then releases our spring loaded hinge jaw up front. Theres a safety pin through the body of the coupler that prevents the collar from sliding far back enough to disengage. So first well remove this pin so we can operate our coupler. The pin is secured to the collar with a chain lanyard that way you dont lose the pin. Now well grab our latch, pull back our collar and the hinge jaw pops open.

To secure it well hold our latch, pull the collar back just a bit then we can close our jaw and let the collar slide over it. Weve got a two inch trailer ball so we can show you exactly how it works on the ball. Well push our latch to open our collar. The jaw pops open and the ball can now be fitted into the socket. Well open our collar back, close the jaw and let the collar slide over it.

Now our ball provides enough travel that the trailer will tack smoothly behind the vehicle but its completely captive and cant come out. Thats it for a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock Coupler with low profile latch part number bd028287.

Excellent Coupler with low price. I replaced the older Bulldog hitch with this one. The channels made it easy to weld it onto 3" channel iron. I prefer the low profile style, instead of the high profile model. I also purchased a lock from etrailer.com that goes through the hitch, replacing the normal clip that it comes with ( pn 28012). They also shipped me a 2" receiver hitch lock ( pn 7683) for my truck, and they keyed the two locks to the same key. 191173

Replacement for worn out receiver on old trailer. Wish Bulldog were made in the USA, not Mexico. But, the others are made in China, which is even worse. 92372


Comments

No problems. Remember to keep a hand on the lever when squeezing shut and let the slide close gradually so you dont pinch your other hand. I keep mine lubed with bicycle chain lube with Teflon. Also, i always grease the ball. Yes, that is messy but the metal-to-metal squealing is prevented and your coupler will last forever.

I recently sold a dump trailer that had a Bulldog 2 inch hitch on it. The new dump trailer I purchased is smaller but has a Chinese 2 5/16" hitch for some reason. I really like the Bulldog style and since everything else I have is 2", I purchased this to replace the one that came on it. As a self employed mechanic I have recommended my customer's use etrailer for supplies I use for them. They and I have always had a pleasant experience. Thank you! 656327

Nice fit and finish. Just need to get the old one torched off, and this welded on. Much better than the stamped steel junk that came on the trailer. 451594

Great product. No doubt now if the hitch is latched on the trailer ball or not.

This trailer hitch is heavy duty and works like a dream. The one that it replaced was cheaply made and did not hold up. We are a commercial business and don't have the luxury of tolerating bad equipment. The part arrived promptly and was exactly what was described on the website 399969

I replaced the hitch on one of my trailers with your bulldog . It is much safer than the old style hitch, I plan on replacing the hitches on all my trailers to your bulldog lok collar this spring. 328633



- BD028287
by:

I think the Bull Dog hitches are far ahead of the compention. I have relied on Bull Dog couplers for over 60 years , I am presently 85 years I use BullDog exclusively, enough can go wrong when hauling horses, I eliminate the trailer coming loose because of the Bull Dog hitch, whenever I buy any tag along trailer I immediatly. change the hitch to a Bull Dog if it has any other. You can put me down as a VERY SATISFIED customer. 327552

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


This is exactly what I was looking for. This is a very good heavy coupler. It is replacing a 5K surge brake toledo bulldog coupler on a trailer I have beefed up with 600# of steel to the 10K level. To save $$$ and maintenance issues I am going to electric brakes after I decide on current axles or not. Very speedy shipping: I did not expect to see it untill 16 July 12. I have ordered from you several times and you have always exceeded my service expectations and your prices are very competitive. 47860

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Best coupler ever - well worth the slightly higher cost. Very easy to operate and slightly more tolerant of misalignment with the ball when hitching up. I keep a plastic deadblow hammer handy to operate it. Way more secure attachment then the cheap Mau coupler that came with trailer which came uncoupled by itself. 310645
