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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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


Really fast shipping, install only took 15 min, and much more solid than the original coupler on the trailer that used two long bolts (which wore and caused the holes to get oblong making the connection to the trailer sloppy), as compared to the four bolts provided with the new coupler.

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


Somehow my old hitch was damaged and a new hitch was required since the moving parts are not replaceable. The old hitch was a pain to use - it required an extra drop to get the ball into proper position, and it required my jumping on the bumper for extra lift to get the ball to release. This hitch will solve the hard-to-attach, hard-to-release issues thanks to the side opening design. It is also nice to have that positive visual feedback that everything is in the proper position prior to drive-away. The one disappointment is that the latch requires a lot of hand strength to operate. I am hoping that once installed that an application of WD-40 will overcome some of the friction in the mechanism. Time will tell. It is possible that I may have been happier with the high profile design for more leverage. Hard to know.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Coupler Option For 1997 Starcraft Meteorite 817
    You'll likely need a new coupler; the issue is that coupler latches are specific to brand and models of couplers, so you have to know what brand and model coupler you have for the correct replacement latch. For example, if you have a coupler from Ram with a 2,000 lb capacity with a 1-7/8" ball and models CT-2001-Z, CT-2003-Z, and CT-2002-Z you would use the Repair Kit # CT-2000-RK. I have added a link to our entire selection of coupler latches if you do know what you have (this information...
