Video Transcript for Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028384 Review

Today well be reviewing part number BD028384. This is the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler with High-Profile Latch. It is designed to fit a 2" ball and an A-frame trailer. It's going to be rated at 5,000 lbs. The heavy-duty coupler is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo and construction trailers. The collar-lok design offers automatic, continuously tight fit for absolute security. Here on this side you can see that there's a little separation here.

This is the actual hinged ball socket that makes hookup very simple. It's made from a high-strength steel so it's going to be very durable. Also here at the back we have the built-in jack-attachment point that allows for quick, easy mounting of a round utility jack. The diameter of that hole is going to measure 2-1/4". The bolt holes are going to measure 3/4" x 7/16"; and from the center of 1 hole to the center of the other, it's going to give us a measurement of 3" and that's going to be the same for each hole. This is designed to fit 50-degree A-frame trailer.

The overall length is going to give us a measurement of 16". The cool thing about having the hinge ball socket is that it's going to give you a visual indication of proper closure so it's going to provide an additional piece of mind. The high-profile latch is very simple to use. It also comes with the coupler pin, so if you just pull that out as I lift up the latch, you're going to see the collar slide back, which opens up the hinge portion here that's going to allow a 2" ball to fit right in there. With it open, the ball is going to fit right in there and then to secure the ball in place all you need to do is close the lever and the hinge ball socket is going to pinch the ball and provide a nice secure connection.

To close it, we just need to make sure that that collar lever is back in place and as we close the latch it's going to allow the collar to slide over that, which would secure the ball in place. Then all we need to do is secure it by reinstalling the pin through the coupler pin hole. That's going to do it for today's review of part number BD028384. This is the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler for 2" hitch balls. .

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

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

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

The couplers (3) are of excellent quality. Ordering was very simple by telephone. All questions were answered. Shipping was immediate and the product arrived in an unmolested box which surprised me due to the weight. I expected the box to be dented and the corners smashed. Tracking of shipments was important to me. Couplers will be installed on a rather unique vehicle. Each of the three cars of this miniture train will receive the new couplers. 109607

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


I changed out the conventional ball hitch on a dump trailer to a bulldog style hitch. There were issues ensuring the original hitch was on the ball correctly. The Bulldog hitch will eliminate that potential problem. Installation was easy. Took about 10 minutes to get the old hitch off and the new one on. The only improvement that I would suggest is to have the lever to retract the collar as the lighter Bulldog hitches do. This one simply has a sliding collar that must be forced back by hand. I always use my foot on the hitches with the lever. But this is a Bulldog issue and not an etrailer issue. etrailer service was outstanding. 469915

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.

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


Products are as advertised. Metal and castings are good quality. Units handled prep and welding nicely. Only two minor points of annoyance. One of the spring retainers arrived broken at the clip end. A spot of delicate mig welding re-assembled it. The paint on all four units was thick enough to inhibit both the lock pin holes and the ball cup pivot actions. A bit of rat tail file work and some oil rectified both. 666248

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


I bought this old really cheap to rebuild. One of the parts that had to be replaced was the hitch, I towed it home with my fingers crossed. I googled trailer hitch, trailer and etrailer was one of the sites that was suggested. I had to find a hitch that fit the 3 1/2" pipe that was the tongue, voila there it was to my amazement. I ordered it right then, 4 days later it was delivered yesterday. Today I mounted it, it was an easy installation and I am really pleased with the hitch and install. My fears of losing a trailer are now history, tomorrow it gets tested with 1 1/2 yards of gravel for the slab for my new. shop 663229

It take a bit of getting used to, but you can certainly tell this is a best in class hitch. I pulled my 2006 crew cab longbed 7500 lbs. truck across the country on my PJ car hauler... Once at new home I used trailer\hitch to haul 4klbs. - 5klbs. of fence material - no worries... 659720

We ordered this on 5/27 and installed it on a burial vault trailer. Two weeks later, the pin holding the collar together fell out while in transit. 659505


Comments

Was the snapper pin secured correctly? The only way I could see this happening is if the bail wasnt secured over the snapper pin and it wasnt closed.

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

Hitch clamp is great quality material but sometimes hard to open. This is because the sleeve does not have support lever to pull back. I have a similar hitch that has a lever which pulls the sleeve when it needs to be opened. That makes it much easier. 617422

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


I looked everywhere for a round coupler for my Tube-Neck trailer, then I found etrailer! I used it to replace the original, which was a thin steel coupler, that had been "pounded-out" until it was round!? This coupler is 20 times stronger. I had it welded on at the local welding shop. I took it on a 800 mile Hunting trip to southern Arizona last November. Not once was I the least bit concerned about the trailer, knowing that this strong coupler was now keeping everything connected. I gave it 4-stars, because the wire connector between the locking lever and the sliding collar, can easily be bent, and then can come free from the locking lever. Instead, it should be a solid steel piece, that is more firmly attached. 615520

Beefy hitch, lot of area to weld to. These are old school design, been around for years. My welding shop said go Bulldog or stay on the porch. Using it to add 7" to my TH trailer toung so I can mount generator box and have turning clearance. Lock the collar down and no need to worry about it. All our oil field company's use them.

  • Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler Recommendation for a Tandem Axle Flat Bed Trailer
  • As long as the 5,000 lb capacity of the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler # BD028384 or the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler # BD028288 is adequate for the weight that your flat bed trailer will see then either will work well for you. The difference between the two is in the latching mechanism. The # BD028288 has a low profile latching system that would work great if you needed additional clearance near the draw bar of your vehicle. If you did not have any clearances issues in that area you could...

Is there a reason you need one that wide? All that really matters is the angle of the coupler as it matches your frame. Nearly all A-frame trailer have a 50 degree angle where the coupler installs. The # BD028463 would install on a 50 degree angled A-frame trailer.
