Video Transcript for Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028386 Review

Today were going to take a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock Coupler with high profile latch part number bd028386. Now Bulldog covers this coupler with a limited five year warranty. It has a gross trailer capacity of 7,000 pounds. Its designed to be used with two inch trailer balls and 50 degree A-frame trailers. It also has the standard configuration for mounting a jack and a large center hole for the body of the jack as well as three slotted holes for the hardware to secure it. Now this is a weld on coupler so youll just weld along the edges of the coupler to secure it to your trailers frame.

Now were going to over the latching mechanism and show you how it works. Theres a pin in the latch that keeps it from being opened unintentionally. Youll need to remove this pin in order to open the coupler. You can also replace the pin with a coupler lock that prevents the latch from opening again securing your trailer when traveling down the road but it also helps protect against theft when storing your trailer for the winter. So first well remove this pin so we can operate our coupler.

As we pull this latch open its going to pull back on our linkage sliding the collar back and then the hinge jaw on the coupler head will open up. The jaws spring loaded so its going to come open automatically and it provides a shoulder for the collar to rest against so that it wont close. To close it well hold the collar back, close the jaw and let the collar slide forward. Now weve got with us a two inch trailer ball so that we can show how it works with an actual ball. Again well pull the latch back and the jaw pops open.

We can then fit our ball into the socket. Well hold our collar back, close the hinge and let the collar slide forward onto the jaw. Now our ball is secure and completely captive but its got enough movement that the trailer will track smoothly behind the tow vehicle. Well pull our jaw open, our balls release and our trailers unhooked. Thats it for a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock Coupler with high profile latch part number bd028386..

After a couple of hiccups on shipping due to back orders and then the weather the Bulldog coupler arrived and was good as I had expected. I think this is the 5th Bulldog coupler that I’ve ordered from e-trailer.

Great, no problems. For any other trailer parts, I know where to go.



by:

Could not be more happy with this trailer hitch. Just two days after I got the hitch welded to my trailer I had to make an emergency run to Louisiana from north Mississippi to help my Step-father get back home. Drove all the way there and had to load the GMC Yukon. I was a little scared of the untested trailer, but we made the hole trip over some very rough roads without issue.

I would recommend this hitch for any trailer.



by:

This is the second bulldog I have purchased from Etrailer. I just sold my trailer the second one is for my new trailer. I got the high profile one this time, I have arthritis in my hands. The lever gives me a better grip and it’s a lot easier on my hands. The bulldog is so easy to hitch and unhitch!



by:

First off the lady I ordered my 7000 lbs bull dog hitch from was sharp as a razor to talk to, she dialed in the product I was looking for in seconds! kaylyn was beyond professional,then she told me I would have my bulldog in about a week. I received it in two days. How can you beat that??, If I ever need anything for my trailers again I will always go to etrailer .com. Thank you Zillanz Falcon,, Colorado Springs

Excellent product and fast shipping. Product exactly as advertised. A-frame hitch and jack very good quality. Great to have sites of this quality on the internet!!!



by:

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.



by:

Retro fitting a 1958 Airstream 22' Caravanner and this coupler is absolutely superior.



by:

So Far so good, On My next order I may know more but for now everything is great,



by:

Nice welded right up to trailer. Works great.



by:

heavy duty and just as promised but somewhat surprised that it is still made in China although the marketing led me to believe it was American made. I still need to install it to see how well the mechanical mechanism slides back and forth but appears to be very sturdy.

Prompt delivery

  • Can the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler Be Used With An Anderson Weight Distribution Hitch
    There is no reason that you should not be able to use the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler part # BD028386 with your Anderson Weight Distribution Hitch. I am not very familiar with the Anderson Weight Distribution Hitch as this is not a product we offer but I did some research on it and do not see anything that would negate use with the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler.

  • Why Are The Sides Of The A-Frame Trailer Coupler Angled Out Slightly?
    Most square frame tubing will actually have a swelling in the steel that causes the frame to not be an exact rectangle. This is why you will see a bit of an angle on the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler # BD028386. I suggest using a large clamp to pull the steel as close together as possible. Be careful that the clap does not distort the inside wall of the steel tubing as this will weaken the steel and possibly cause the angle to increase. The heat from the welding process will help to pull...

  • Replacement Latch for Bulldog 7k A-Frame Collar-Lok Trailer Coupler
    To replace the latch on coupler # BD028386 you will need Bulldog High-Profile Latch Repair Kit, # BD024200. It comes with the high-profile latch handle, spring, latch wire, latch pin, push nut and cotter pin.

  • How To Couple and Uncouple a Bulldog Style Trailer Coupler
    I have attached for you a photo that shows the proper sequence to couple and uncouple a Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler like the part # BD028386. To summarize, see below: To Couple: 1) Block trailer wheels. 2) Align hitch ball beneath coupler. 3) If the coupler is closed, open it by removing the pin in the latch and lifting the latch. Be sure the coupler cap is open and holds the collar back. 4) Lower the trailer onto the hitch ball. 5) Visually check that the hitch ball is fully seated in...

  • Coupler Lock that Fits Bulldog Collar Lok Coupler
    For locking a Bulldog Collar Lok coupler like the # BD028386 we have the part # e98888 which will work well to prevent the collar from sliding back.

  • Can Bulldog Collar -Lok Couplers be Locked While Towing the Trailer
    Towing coupler locks, as they are called, are not as common as they used to be. We have numerous coupler locks but none that will work with coupler # BD028386 while the trailer is being towed. What you could do is use a latch lock such as # e98888 so that the latch cannot be opened and thus the trailer cannot be uncoupled from the ball.

  • Recommended Weld-On A-Frame Trailer Coupler For A Teardrop Camper Build
    For your teardrop camper build I recommend the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM14791-97 over the Bulldog # BD028386 you were looking at. The latch style of the Demco is much easier and in my own personal opinion a safer design. The eZ-Latch does not need to be tugged or manually activated to allow the ball into the coupler socket, nor does it have to be secured in place. Just make sure that the coupler is properly lined up with the ball when you lower it, and the rest is...

  • Is There A Bolt-On Collar Lock Style Coupler For 5,000-7,000 lb Application?
    The only bolt on couplers we have meeting or exceeding the 5,000- 7,000 lb weight capacity are the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch - Black - 2" Ball - Bolt On - 10K # DM14793-81 or similiar in different ball size or color. We also have the Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch - 2-5/16" Ball - A-Frame - 15,000 lbs # BD44150WH301. Unfortunately we don't have any collar lock style couplers that aren't weld on
