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. The eZ-Latch's sleek, ergonomically designed handle is also constructed of a durable composite material that's corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

The process with ordering and delivery of my hitch went great and deserves a 5 star proformance. This is the 2nd time ordering trailer parts and they always out proforma my satisfaction




by:

Product good heavy duty quality have not installed or used yet- but nice product - hoping many years of use




by:

Great coupler. Solid and easy to use.




by:

I had previously purchased the Atwood coupler #AT80072, but it didn’t seem to go far enough back on the a-frame and I didn’t feel comfortable with that. This Demco model is nearly identical in size to the old Hadco engineering coupler that came on my 1964 trailer. I thought that this 10000 lb coupler would be overkill, but I’m happy that it will weld on exactly like the original.




by:

Excellent product and was exactly as described. I love the Demco EZ latch. Shipping was super quick! Will do business with etrailer.com again.




by:

excellent product. perfect fit. better quality than other hitches i found.




by:

Best coupler I have ever had on a trailer. Wish I would have had sooner in my live of trailering. Makes connecting and disconnecting a one step breeze.
I will get this on all trailers from now on!




by:

Looks good, quality controle could be a little better. Nothing that will effect the function. It looks like it was not cleaned after welding. There is a lot of weld splatter. I am painting it a different color anyway so I will clean it up.




by:

Great product. After a year of heavy use, everything still works perfectly. George was a great help during the buying process. He made sure the tongue weight was proper for the trailer loads. I have used etrailer several times, and will continue to use them in the future.




by:

I just got the hitch coupler. Will know more when it is installed in a week or so.
Using the coupler, ball mount and hitch ball to upgrade my car hauler to 10K.




by:

Yes. Best coupler I ever owned. Self locking feature works great. Absolutely love this product and I recommend to anyone needing a new coupler. This product is well built and built to last. Thank you for such a fantastic product. Will buy again if needed.




by:

Great.. Heavy Duty ,,,Super easy to use... love it... I hope it outlast my Trailer. which should outlast my life time anyway ...Received all my order promptly was well packaged...Thanks ....




by:

Always easy to work with whether buying or returning, etrailer is awesome.

The replacement hitch fit perfectly and has been welded in place. Thanx!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Very good quality, construction, and finish. This was used to replace a 5000# rated coupler on my RV trailer that was just not strong enough. It has an extra 2-3" of length than the old coupler so make sure your safety chains have enough length to accommodate the extra length. One bonus for me was that the extra length was just enough to allow me to open the back door of my SUV with the trailer hitched (which I couldn't do before). The DEMCO coupler does take a 2 1/2" wide hitch pin /lock which is different than most couplers.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


My order shipped quickly and showed up in good time. The coupler looks good, but i was disappointed in the gross tongue weight of 10% of total Gross trailer weight. This was not advertised in the details online. I was expecting a 20% tongue weight. If there is another coupler with a 4k/21k rating id appreciate a link.


Comments
I checked and we do not have an adjustable coupler that has a higher TW capacity.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Hitch works great, almost no chance of user error, very positive coupling with min. play on the ball. Zinc plate is thick and uniform. No chance to damage the paw it's very robust.
I did have to drill the lock pin holes with 8mm bit because a 5/16" hasp on the lock was to tight.

The coupler came quickly and fit perfectly. So much better than the original.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Installed this AWESOME hitch on my 20 ft equipment trailer after I upgraded to 8k axles. This hitch is a beast. I love the no touch when hooking up. Just lower the trailer down and it makes a positive lock sound. I welded the hitch to a 1/2 inch thick plate. Welded the plate onto the trailer and used my own gussets instead of the supplied ones. You won’t go wrong with this hitch!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


I decided I wanted to renew my Dad's old trailer. Starting with a trailer coupler upgrade to the adjustable "eZ-Latch". Thanks to etrailer it was an easy, convenient one stop shop and I couldn't be more pleased with the products and service. When it comes time to do the running gear and tires, etrailer will be my source.

Thank you!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Replacing a sloppy 21K pintle with this hitch, pintle came with a trailer I bought used so this will be a quiet replacement to pair with my B&W Tri-ball I bought a couple years ago with etrailer.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


I don’t really want to write a review, hope someone will really read this.the main reason I ordered a bolt on coupling is so I would not have to weld, but I’m gonna have to even add 2in.to my trailer to make all the holes match. I would have returned it but your return policy says I would have to pay shipping ugg!!. I’m already in for 140.00 bucks now I have to pay and end up with nothing but lost of money for nothing. I’m 74 years old and did not want to weld , that was my only reason for ordering your coupling .the thing had some scratches and marks on it like it had already been a return, don’t think it was done during shipping, although it was put in a fairly large box with flimsy paper packing, so I’m going to have to make it work,even have to weld and everything. Now I’m having to waste time writing all of this , and it’s not going to even make any difference anyway. I think y’all owe me some kind of discount for all my troubles I was trying to avoid anyway, but I’m sure that is not going to happen either. GOD BLESS THOMAS OLIVER


Comments
You mentioned that you needed to add 2 inches to your trailer to install the trailer and I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail what you mean. Would you be able to send pictures?

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Very solid hitch. Fast shipping. Fits well except your trailer channels need to nearly come to a point for the first set of holes to have anything to bolt to. Mine did not, so I am having it welded on as well. No paperwork or hardware with this package, but the video will answer most all questions.


Comments
Excellent - it’s stronger than the trailer. Weak point is the plastic lever. If I’m unhitching on an incline it won’t release. I would break it.

  • What Is Inside Dimension Of Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole That Fits Trailer Frame
    The inside dimension of the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole, part # DM14791-97 is 2-12 inches. I have attached a photo of the underside of the coupler with the dimension noted for you.

  • Height of the Side Brackets on the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97
    I went out into our warehouse and grabbed a Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97 to get the dimension you are looking for and found that from bottom of the top plate to the bottom flange of the coupler measures 3-1/4 inches.

  • How Far Out Will The Coupler Sit On The Demco DM14791-97 A-Frame Coupler?
    The Demco A-Frame Coupler # DM14791-97 will fit the fairly standard 50 degree A-Frame, which you do look to have. This will definitely extend farther than your current coupler and will measure 7-1/2" long (roughly) from where the A-Frame will start to flare outwards. The sidewalls of the A-Frame brackets will also measure 3-1/4" tall, so there will be plenty of room for your 3" frame rails. So with all that being said, the Demco # DM14791-97 looks to be a fantastic replacement for your...

  • Can Demco Trailer Coupler # DM37ZR be Welded On
    Yes, if you wanted to weld on the Demco coupler part # DM37ZR instead of bolting it on you certainly could. This is powdercoated though so you will need to remove the powdercoating first. For a similar coupler that was designed to be welded on and instead is just primed we have the part # DM14791-97 which has a 10k capacity, the same latch design, and fits a 2 inch hitch ball.

  • Why Dont Trailer Coupler Replacements Come with Safety Chain Loops
    Most couplers actually don't come with safety chain loops on them. Reason being that if for some reason the coupler came attached from the trailer you'd want the chains on the trailer frame so that they'd still be effective. Welding a couple of the part # MB38 loops on your trailer would work well.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Coupler For Discontinued Atwood 2" Yoke Coupler
    I recommend replacing your Atwood coupler with a Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97, as parts are virtually impossible to find for the older Atwood couplers. This will get you all new latch components that feature an EZ latch system. The coupler comes primed to protect against rust until you are able to have it welded on in place of the old coupler.

  • Replacement EZ Use Coupler For Horse Trailer With 2" Sleeve Lock Coupler
    I recommend having the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97 welded on in place of the Sleeve-Lock # CA-5196-B style coupler that you currently have. This Demco coupler uses a 2" hitch ball the same as your current coupler and is rated for up to 10,000lbs which is more than the maximum weight your trailer can weigh.

  • Recommendations For Allowing Trailer Jack To Be Able To Swing Up Without Hitting Ground
    I would be happy to help! There is a few options to get the increased clearance you need to raise your trailer so you can stow away your jack when not in use. I recommend replacing the coupler with a standard a-frame coupler you would still be able to get the coupler off the hitch without hitting the spare tire as it would be the same height. With an A-Frame coupler like the # DM14791-97 installed this would raise the trailer a few inches so you could keep using your jack, or it has...

  • Recommended A-Frame Coupler To Replace A Ram A-Frame Coupler With A Sloppy Fit
    The A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5210-B will have the exact same yoke latch as your current Ram coupler, so it will not be adjustable, unfortunately. With that said, if you were over doing the weight capacity and can swing the Dutton Lainson A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DL14008 with 5,000 pounds of capacity, it will have the adjustability you are looking for. If you do need more capacity than that though, your best option will be the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97. This is actually...

    You will need to replace your entire coupler assembly as the Atwood coupler that you have is obsolete and they are not producing any parts for it. I recommend replacing it with the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97. This coupler uses the same 2" size hitch ball of your Atwood coupler and the eZ-Latch coupler will make connecting to your trailer much easier as you no longer need to raise the latch.

  • Troubleshooting Coupler Difficulties With A 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 26BHS Travel Trailer
    The Repair Kit for etrailer and Ram A-Frame Couplers # CA-5100-RK only fits the following couplers # CA5100B, CA-5100-BLB, and # CA-5100-Z, so it would not solve your connection difficulty, unless you had one of these specific couplers. Aside from lubing the hitch ball the only other solution would be to replace your coupler with an easier coupling design like the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch # DM14793-97 or the weld-on version # DM14791-97.
