Video Transcript for Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028499 Review

Today we're going to take a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock coupler with low-profile latch, part number BD028499. Bulldog covers this coupler with a limited 5 year warranty that has a gross trailer weight capacity of 12,500 pounds. It's designed to work with standard 50 degree A frame trailers and it's a well done application so you'll just weld along the edges of the coupler to secure it to your trailer's frame. It has the cut out assembly for a jack where there's the main hole for the body of the jack and three bolt holes spaced apart according to industry standards for mounting the jack to the coupler. Now we're going to go over the coupler's mechanism. There's a collar that has to slide back and this hinged jaw will then be able to open up.

There's a pin in place that stops the collar from moving back accidently. So, we'll remove the pin and then we can operate the jack. We'll grab this lever and pull it, the collar slides back and the jaw pops open. Now, there's a shoulder here on our jaw that holds the collar back so it doesn't close while you're trying to hookup or unhook your trailer. To close the jaw, we can either just hit it closed or push it down while holding the latch and slowly let the collar over it.

We've got a 2-5/16 ball with us so we can show you how it works with an actual ball. The coupler is closed, so we'll grab our latch and open it up and the hinged jaw pops open, fit our ball into place and the coupler closes. Now our ball is secure, but it allows enough movement for it to track behind our tow vehicle. Now we'll just push our latch down and open our collar and the ball comes free. Again, we'll hold the collar back, push the jaw down and we can let the collar slide forward.

Lastly, we'll go over one measurement and that's the overall length of the coupler. It measures about 16-1/2 inches. That's it for a quick look at the Bulldog collar lock coupler with low-profile latch, part number BD028499. .

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

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

Easy to use website, great prices, super fast shipping, products packages professionally so the boxed were not destroyed in shipping. Extra care taken in every way.

Appears to be a refurbished unit, has several rust spots. Collar does not align very well with the shank of the coupler clam. Retaining pin holes a tad small. Needs some lubricant for the collar, retaining pin holes reamed out a little, and a hammer to help open the collar. All that said, I did get it delivered to my door at a price that was agreeable and better than everyone else. It also arrived about 4 days earlier than expected. Hope my welder does not have plans Saturday. I have bought from etrailer before and will continue to do so. They have a good selection of products and good prices. Service is always fast and courtesy and they followup with you unlike most suppliers. 183798

I'm a fan of Bulldog hitches. This product needs a little fine tuning on arrival. Very difficult to get the retaining pin in or out, I'll need to polish up the holes a bit. Once broken in I'm sure it will be just as functional and dependable as all the other Bulldog hitches on the road. 93973

This product was purchased to replace an existing hitch that could only use a cheap hitch cover lock. After already having one trailer stolen this year security has become a priority. With this coupler we can use a heavy duty lock that covers the entire coupler and making it much more difficult to steal. Bulldog products always work for us. 32881

I love the bulldog-collar-lok coupler. I used it to replace a broken coupler that never quite worked right. The collar lock coupler is much easier to take on and off the ball. Locking is simple, effective and easily verified for safety. Installation was easy. Pull off the old coupler assembley (torch or plasma cutter works great). clean up the work surface removing old welds. Weld it onto the frame, ensuring the frame is evenly touching on all sides and bottom. touching. Final step...go back to hunting !! 30389

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 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

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.

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

Do you have a question about this A-Frame Trailer Coupler?


  • What is Difference Between High and Low Profile Bulldog Couplers
  • The difference between the low profile latch Bulldog coupler part # BD028499 and the high profile coupler part # BD028463 is the height of the latch and it's design that pulls the collar back. It's really personal preference between the two. Whichever you would want to use would be the way to go. Only real thing to consider would be clearance. If for some reason you didn't have the clearance for the high profile you would need to go with the low profile. I attached review videos for...

  • Compatibility of 28012 Coupler Lock on a 2-5/16 Inch Bulldog Coupler
  • Good news, I can help you figure out if this coupler lock will fit your Bulldog coupler. As long as your pin diameter on the Bulldog coupler is larger than a 1/4 inch and the span is no bigger than 3-3/8 inches, then this coupler lock will work for you. I pulled the Bulldog coupler # BD028287 you had looked at from our warehouse and a similar style 2-5/16 inch # BD028499 and measured the size of the lock pin that goes in the coupler. It measured 5/16 inch diameter and a length of...

  • Yoke Style Coupler Replacement for 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball Compatibilty
  • Unfortunately we don't have a repair kit at this time. If you choose to replace the entire coupler, I recommend the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ Low-Profile Latch - 2-5/16" Ball - A-Frame - 12,500 lbs # BD028499. For a bolt on option, you may be interested in the Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch - 2-5/16" Ball - A-Frame - 15,000 lbs, # BD44150WH301, that has the wedge latch.

  • Does the 12.5K Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler have a Tongue Weight Rating
  • Believe it or not but you almost never see tongue weight ratings on trailer couplers. But the best thing to do is stay at 10 to 15 percent of the gross weight capacity. Bulldog coupler # BD028499 is rated for 12,500 pounds gross trailer weight but doesn't have a listed tongue weight capacity. So at 10 to 15 percent that would be 1,250 pounds to 1,875 pounds. But you would still be limited to the tongue weight rating specified by the trailer manufacturer (if applicable). I have linked a...

  • Difference Between the Bulldog Wedge and the Collar Lock Couplers
  • The distance between the center of the ball hole to the center of the circle used for A-frame jacks on the part # BD44125W0317 that you referenced is 12-1/2 inches. I confirmed this with my contact at Bulldog. The advantages between the latching styles of the wedge latch in the # BD44125W0317 and the collar lock like in part # BD028499 is largely personal preference. But the wedge is easier to lock with an anti-theft device. The collar lock style is more rugged and crude design with...

The Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler is available for different types of trailers. For a square channel tongue, we have the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler, part # BD028444.

  • Coupler and Jack Replacement for 2001 Thuro Bilt 2 Horse Trailer
  • I looked up pictures of the 2001 Thuro Bilt trailer you said you have and they have an a-frame with an interesting angle, but the part # BD028499 does seem to be mounted on top of it so this would work. Then for a jack a top wind jack like the Pro Series part # PS1400600303 would work well as that's also what's used in all of the pictures I saw. If you wanted a wheel caster you'd also want the part # PS1400750340.

  • Could Bulldog Collar Lok Coupler be Used on a Travel Trailer
  • The Bulldog Collar Lok part # BD028499 that you referenced would be a great option for your travel trailer.

There's nothing about it that prevents it from being used on a travel trailer.

  • Recommended Coupler Style for 1956 Spartan Royal Mansion Trailer
  • A collar lock coupler like the Bulldog # BD028499 is going to be generally easier to operate and less likely to have latching difficulties because of the larger moving parts. With a collar style coupler, it is easier to visually confirm when the coupler is properly secured around the hitch ball. Because of this, I do recommend a collar lock style, but it is really mostly a matter of personal preference. Either style will be reliable for long trips and will work great on your 1956 Spartan...

I recommend looking into the weight of your trailer and the vehicle you plan on hauling before deciding on a coupler. The A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5210-B is a great option that is rated for up to 8,000 lbs but if you are needing something rated even higher than that the Bulldog Collar-Lok # BD028463 or # BD028499 is the better route to go as they...
