eZ-Latch Coupler

This coupler features a simple-to-use latching mechanism known as the eZ-Latch. With this mechanism, hooking up is as easy as dropping the coupler over your trailer hitch ball. The 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 automatic. Disengaging the coupler is just as effortless. Simply lift up the contoured handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.

Video Transcript for Demco Trailer Coupler DM13205-52 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DM13205-52. This is the Demco a-frame trailer coupler for 2-5/16" trailer hitch balls. The a-frame coupler is made of a sturdy steel construction and it's going to feature a nice durable silver powder coat finish. It's going to offer excellent corrosion and rust resistance. Now it's going to feature the eZ-Latch mechanism. This is going to ensure fast, easy, secure hookup and disconnect.

It includes the cutout for your 2-1/4" round trailer jack, as well as the cutouts for the mounting locations. The a-frame coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to provide your connection point for your 2-5/16" hitch ball. The eZ-Latch mechanism is going to feature a corrosion-proof composite latch handle, very strong and very durable. Now the eZ-Latch mechanism is going to let you hook up when the latch is in a closed position. All you have to do is drop the coupler over your hitch ball and the latch will automatically snap and engage the hitch ball that it's connecting to, so there's no need to lift this up and then connect.

You can if you want because it will do it both ways, but the beauty of this system is in this position right here you can just drop it over your hitch ball and it will automatically connect. Disengaging the coupler is just as simple. All you have to do is lift up on the contoured handle, and then the coupler socket is going to automatically release its grip on the hitch ball. This is made from a heavy duty steel construction. Again, it's going to have that silver powder coat finish on it. It's going to have a 500-hour salt spray rating, so this is going to be great for marine applications.

It's a bolt-on installation. You can see the numerous bolt holes that we have going on each side of our coupler. Now each one of those holes, excluding this one, this one, and the one upfront, those are all going to have a diameter of 3/8". This is designed for 50-degree a-frame trailers. If we take a measurement here at the back, the measurement from inside the inside edge, that's going to give us a measurement of 10-3/8". Again, it is for 2-5/16" balls.

If we take a measurement of the overall length measuring from the very front to the very back, that's going to give us a measurement of looks to be about 17-5/8". Again, this is designed to fit 2-1/4" round trailer jacks. The mount hole separation that we're going to have is going to be our standard 3-1/4". Those are on center and each one's going to have the same measurement between the other. This is going to offer a weight capacity of 21,000 pounds. Now one of the last things I want to point out here is you're going to see on the side towards the front it's going to feature a hole on each side. That's going to be for a coupler pin and lock. That's all about theft prevention and theft protection. That's going to give us a diameter of 5/16". Now that hole is designed to allow a coupler pin to run all the way through coming out the other side, and then securing it with a coupler lock. That's a great system to have. The span that this is going to offer, that's going to be the amount of usable length that you need to make sure that your coupler pin has, is going to measure about 3". If you don't already have one, you can check out some options here on our website. We do offer some that will easily fit this style of coupler. Now the great thing about a coupler lock mechanism or being able to lock your coupler is if your trailer's unattended and you have the coupler pin and lock installed, nobody else is going to be able to come and hook up to your trailer. If you have this connected to your vehicle and you have the coupler pin and lock connected, one, it's going to make sure as a backup that the socket doesn't disconnect for your hitch ball, and it's going to keep anybody else from being able to disconnect your trailer for your tow vehicle. That's going to do it for our review of part number DM13205-52. This is the Demco a-frame trailer coupler for 2-5/16" hitch balls. .

It’s been a year and I’m having to replace the hitch on my trailer once again. The factory one broke around the ball. This one is cracking beside one of the factory welds. I do put a lot of miles on and the trailer is around 18k loaded. So all in all it’s done it’s job. 567649

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


  • Package Contents of Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler with Jack Center Hole # DM13205-52
  • The Demco coupler # DM13205-52 you were looking at does not include the hardware needed for installation. It would be a good idea to switch over from your weld on to a bolt on coupler, this will make it a whole lot easier to replace over time as it wears out as you have stated.

  • Size and Type Bolts Required to Install Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler with Hole for Trailer Jack
  • To install the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM13205-52 that you referenced, you will want to use 3/8 inch, grade 5 bolts , approximately 1-1/2 inches long (depending on how you are installing the coupler). You will want to use 5 of these bolts per side for a total of 10 bolts.

  • Can Weld-On A-Frame Trailer Coupler be Replaced with a Bolt-On Coupler
  • Yes, you can replace your weld-on coupler with a bolt-on. You'll just need to drill the holes. Then, if you wanted to go back to a weld-on later that would be fine too. Just to confirm you can check with the trailer's manufacturer that drilling the holes won't lower the trailer's capacity. Our most popular A-frame couplers are the Demco eZ-Latch. The eZ-Latch makes it easier to hookup and disconnect from your trailer. For a coupler that fits a 2 inch ball use # DM14793-52 and...

  • Mounting Hole Spacing of Bulldog A-Frame Coupler
  • The Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler # BD44150WH301 has the same standard mounting hole dimensions as the Demco # DM13205-52 that are 1-1/4 inches from the top. You said you believe yours are 1-1/2 inches so if you are going to replace the coupler I recommend taking it off and double-checking; you may find that the holes are 1-1/4 inches. Otherwise there are weld-on options available that you may want to consider; I've added a link to our selection of A-Frame couplers that use a 2-5/16"...

  • Will Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler DM13205-52 Fit 2015 Featherlite 3116 Trailer
  • I checked the Featherlite Trailer website for specs on the model 3116 trailer but this part number returned no results. But if your trailer uses an industry-standard 50-degree a-frame design then the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM13205-52 will fit as a bolt-on replacement. I linked a photo of this coupler to show you the mounting hole spacing.

  • Can the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler Part 13205-52 Be Locked
  • Yes, you can use the Trailer Coupler Lock part # 28012 to prevent the hitch ball from coming uncoupled from the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # DM13205-52. The lock will install in the pin hole directly below the latch which you can see in the attached photo.

  • A-Frame Trailer Coupler for a 2-5/16 Inch Ball that Can be Locked
  • Coupler repair kits are not always universal. In fact it is less likely that one designed for a certain coupler will fit a different coupler. Without knowing the brand and model coupler you have I cannot guarantee that any of the repair kits will work. I recommend replacing the coupler with a new one such as # DM13205-52. It is a bolt-on A-frame coupler that takes a 2-5/16 inch ball. You can look it with a latch lock, # 28012.
