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. .

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

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

Works great. Welded it on and was ready to go. Have ordered from etrailer before, and just like every time before my parts arrived very promptly and have never had any complaints with service. Will definitely be using etrailer again. 265563

The coupler was received filthy dirty, with huge runs in the paint, rust spots, and chips down to bare metal. A young child could have done a better job painting it. In addition, the holes for the trailer jack are poorly punched. 339423

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


Easiest hook up there is. The first time I bought one of these connectors I was in Texas. They are easy to find out there. Well I have a problem with my tow vehicle. It has a spare tire hanging right on top of my receiver ball. The connector that came with the trailer required about 6+" of space between the ball and the tire, which I did not have, I could lengthen the ball out which I definately wanted to avoid. This connector was the answer to my situation. I went up north last weekend to visit my son and when I got back this connector was setting on my front porch, this was about 4:30 PM. Before I went to bed it was installed on my trailer, after I cut the existing one off ofcourse. This connector connects up like a dream, it's self centering, has no adjustments, so you do not have to worry if it is too tight or too loose and may come apart. I modified the toung on my last trailer also and used this same connector, it's neat, sweet and compleat. I may be in the market for a load leveler kit. 337

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

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

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

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

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.

Installed new coupler on wheeled fish. I unhook and hook up a lot. Old style ball hitch was difficult to unhook, new style will just slip on and off without issue of getting caught. New ball hitch is also suppose to be the safest on the market. So far working perfect. 739672

WOW. A company that apparently really cares. "Just what I wanted" was my husbands remark about the hitch receiver. He could not been happier with the purchase as well as the attention shown him through emails. The shipping time was super, especially as we ordered it during Christmas rush. Thank you. I know you will be his "go to place" and has already told several people about you. 735625

Gotta love a Bulldog hitch- easy to operate, with a positive action. Made of thicker metal than original troublesome 1-1/2-year-old cheap hitch. Expect years of service on travel trailer. 732455

  • Wide A-Frame Coupler Recommendation for a Trailer
    I did some checking and the a-frame coupler with the most distance at the widest point is the Bulldog Collar-Lok coupler part # BD028384. This coupler has a 11 inches at the widest point. 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.
