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.

Video Transcript for Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DM14793-81 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DM14793-81. This is the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler for 2" trailer hitch balls. The A-Frame Coupler is made of a sturdy steel construction. It's going to have a durable black powder coat finish, so it's going to offer excellent corrosion resistance. It's going to feature the eZ-Latch mechanism, so it's going to ensure a fast, easy, secure hook-up and disconnect. It's going to include the cutout for your 2 1/4" round trailer jack as well as the cutout for those 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" hitch ball, and it's going to have the eZ-Latch mechanism.

It's got a nice corrosion-proof, composite, latch handle, very strong and very durable with a nice contour there over the front of the coupler. Gives it a nice, clean, sleek look. This is going to let you hook up when the latch is in a closed position. The eZ-Latch design is great to have. All you have to do is drop the coupler over the hitch ball, the latch is going to automatically snap into place, so there's no need to have the latch mechanism open. You can though if you want because it's going to allow you to connect either way, but the beauty of this system is you can connect to your hitch ball with the latch in the closed position. Disengaging the coupler is just as simple.

All you have to do is lift up on the contoured handle. Nice, smooth, seamless operation. It's going to allow the coupler socket to automatically release and disengage the grip on your 2" hitch ball. Again, this is made from a heavy duty, steel construction, black powder coat finish. It is a bolt-on installation, so on each side you're going to have three mounting holes. These are going to feature a diameter of 1/2".

If we take a measure of the amount of separation we have between each hole, it looks like that all the way down the line they're going to be separated on 3" centers. This is designed for 50 degree a-frame trailers. The opening here at the back measuring from inside edge to inside edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 10 3/4". This is designed for 2" trailer hitch 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 about 17 5/8" long. The jack mounting holes, that's going to have a separation, center on center, that's going to be our standard pattern of 3 1/4".

This coupler's going to have a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. The last thing I want to point out is that here, towards the front of the coupler, you're going to notice a hole located on each side. These holes are going to have a diameter of 5/16" and they're strictly there for theft prevention. Those holes are going to allow you to insert a coupler pin and lock system. With it installed, it's going to prevent the handle from being able to come up, which is also going to prevent this unit from being able to connect to a trailer. Or if you install the coupler pin and lock after it's already connected to the trailer, it's going to prevent it from being able to disconnect. If your trailer's unattended and you want to make sure nobody else comes up to your trailer and hooks up to it, just place on there some type of lock, whether it's a coupler pin and lock, or whether it's a socket lock. Again, it's all about theft prevention. If you have this installed on your tow vehicle on your 2" hitch ball, going to install a coupler pin and lock, that's going to ensure that nobody disconnects your trailer from your vehicle and connects it to theirs. It's also going to act as a backup safety to make sure that the coupler doesn't disengage from the connection point. If you don't have any type of lock, we offer a couple different styles of pin and lock systems that will work with this coupler, as well as some socket locks that will work to fit on the inside of the socket mechanism when the trailer's not connected to your hitch ball. That's going to do it for our review of part number DM14793-81. This is the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler for 2" hitch balls. .

Coupler mechanism is finicky, you have to shake the trailer tongue to get it to lock. The pin hole is too small in diameter to accept a lock so you have to use a ball lock to lock the trailer. Also it’s plastic so if it sticks you have to be careful tapping on it. I wouldn’t by again and if it breaks I’ll go back to normal coupler. 489782


Comments

The coupler mechanism is adjustable. Use the adjustment bolt on the underside of the latching mechanism to adjust until the coupler will self-latch when set atop the trailer ball.

Trailer coupling will not fit correctly on a 2" Ball...to tight and is always difficult to get on and off. 440928


Comments

We have contacted the manufacturer and they suggest pulling forward so that trailer is not pushing against the truck. If the ball is being pushed into the latch mechanism if will be hard to unlatch. Pull forward before unhooking it on a level surface.

Hitch works great the only thing holding me back from a five star rating is the plastic latch handle. The latch handle flex's a lot and feels like it would break if pulled hard. I have figured out that if you start to jack the trailer up and then it releases easily. I will defiantly buy this hitch again. 264103

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. 527512

i had a deck over trailer that rode way too high making the the trailer ass heavy and caused it to sway. I removed the old one and welded this one on and now the trailer rides level and pulls amazing. The quick hookup feature on this is a must have as the ball seats perfectly every time. Great product and will definitely be getting another for my other trailer as it's coupler wears. 462048

The coupler is a fantastic, well built and easy to use unit. The installation was super simple. The coupler lock is a great piece as well, it fits great into the ball socket on the coupler and locks super tight. Great pieces of equipment. The coupler latch pin however did not fit the latch on the Demco coupler. Had to pick up a different one from Farm as Fleet, but we can use the other one on my other trailer. 126978

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! 592298

I ordered an easy latch trailer coupler in silver, about two days later I got a call and was told that silver was out of stock, but I could get sent black. I agreeed to black instead of silver. However when I received my trailer coupler it was a whole different model. I did not have time to send it back, however not the greatest to receive something different than what I ordered. 417333

This is the best hitch on the market! I've changed over all 4 of my trailers to this hitch. Simple hook/unhook, releases off the ball smooth, no pins to mess with. The included steel bracket (product #DM6125-81) is super heavy duty & so is the hitch itself, plenty heavy for any 2 5/16" trailer. I hacked off my existing hitches w a cutoff saw, welded a plate then the bracket and did each of my trailers , w paint, in less than an hour. 463489

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


I needed to replace my coupler and had no access to a welder. so I ordered the Demco bolt on A style coupler. I had to do a little modification to my Trailer tongue but no big deal. The coupler is also heavier duty than my old coupler. I also like the fact that I don't have to make sure the lever is all the way open because the new coupler just drops onto my hitch ball. As heavy duty this coupler is I suspect the rest of the trailer will fall apart before it does. 198904

Etrailer.com is a superb, first class vendor...and George J with that company is an oustanding sales representative! Just recently I bought a DemcO A-frame Coupler W/ Jack Hole - Silver - Bolt On - 10k. This was a replacement for a trailer hitch that was bent thru heavy use. Not only was the hitch easy to graft on the A-frame, but it was much stronger than the original with a 10k lb capacity and the price was great. The etrailer customer care was also outstanding. I paid for standard shipping, but w/in the same day I received a message from George J that he was accelerating shipping service to 3 days at no cost. From now on I will buy all my trailer components and all hardware from etrailer.com. Great products, great prices, outstanding service! Thank you George! 469318

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


Wow. This is what a trailer hitch should be. Up to now, I tended to buy trailer couplers based on low price, provided it was rated high enough for what I was pulling. This time, I decided to spend a few extra $$$ to get a premium coupler, and I wasn't disappointed. Coupling and un-coupling is the easiest I have ever experienced, fit and finish are excellent, and it looks built to last a lifetime. After years of struggling with a trailer coupler that was difficult to latch and unlatch, this is a breeze (you had to have things lined up exactly, and then still look/reach underneath to be sure the little 'catch' had grabbed the ball, plus fight against a spring-loaded lever to latch). With this coupler, you just park so the ball is under the coupler, and lower the trailer. As you lower the trailer, the little release lever will start to rise up off the coupler. When it 'snaps' back down, you are locked in place. Couldn't be easier. To unlock, just flip the lever up, and raise the trailer. No fighting a little latch that requires you to be exactly centered before it will latch, no way the latch can miss holding the ball in place, and no fighting the catch to un couple. I wish I would have known about this style of coupler years ago. It costs a few dollars more (but not much for one of equal tow ratings) but it works better than any other coupler I have used. Well worth it, if you hook and unhook your trailer with any frequency at all. 641124

I have built several trailers in the past and I am currently building a tilt bed car trailer. I have made several purchases from etrailer.com They are great people to deal with and all of the products that I have purchased have met or exceeded my expectations. For this build I am using dropped axles which make the trailer tongue 5 inches lower than one with straight axles. I needed to be able to raise the coupler to prevent using a drastically dropped draw bar on the tow 4WD tow truck. I chose the Demco channel mount adjustable coupler to allow for the needed adjustment for different tow vehicles. This is a very well built coupler that attaches to the channel with 4 high strength bolts, not 2 like most other mounts. It also features auto latch system so you just lower the trailer onto your ball and the Demc automatically locks on the ball. Great product. 615672

  • Bolts for Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler
  • The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 (Black) or # DM14793-52 (Silver) do not come with bolts. You will need to use 1/2" Grade 5 hex bolts with them. I've added links to video reviews of each coupler for you to check out.

  • Torque Specs for 1/2 Inch Grade 8 Bolts to Install Demco Trailer Coupler DM14793-81
  • Starting with the safety chains they really need to be attached to the trailer frame and not the coupler hardware. If there is no where to attach the chains on the trailer you can weld on safety chain mounting brackets such as # MB12, # MB38, or # MB58. For 1/2 inch Grade 8 bolts you will want to torque them to 115 foot pounds.

  • Replacing Weld-On Coupler with Bolt-On Coupler on Older Winnebago Travel Trailer
  • We have a large selection of A-Frame couplers like what would be on your older Winnebago travel trailer. You can certainly remove your weld-on coupler and replace it with a bolt-on unit, as long as the new coupler's capacity is correct for your trailer and it is the proper size for fitment. I just recommend sanding and painting the tongue after removal. Also just keep in mind that you will need to drill some holes into the tongue so that you can install a bolt-on coupler to replace it. I...

  • Adding Different Bolt-On A-Frame Trailer Coupler to Rusted Trailer in the Woods
  • Well, that is a coupler, though it is in bad shape. It is a bottom mount or underslung coupler like # CA-5335-B. You can check the ball cavity to see if it is in working order but all that corrosion makes me think that using its coupler is not going to work. In order to use a regular coupler you will likely have to cut off that bottom mount coupler so a new coupler will be able to be lowered on the ball. The jack will also have to come out to be able to install a new coupler. As long...

  • What is the Height of the Demco # DM14793-81 Trailer Coupler
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 that you asked about and found that it measures 3-1/2" from the bottom to the top. I have attached a picture to demonstrate. If your safety chains are welded to the underside of your trailer frame then this coupler will be compatible because it covers the top and sides of the frame.

  • Replacing A 4-Bolt Trailer Jack For An A-Frame Trailer Coupler
  • Almost all A-frame jacks now have the triangle or round mounting plate with the 3 bolt-3 inch on center holes. We do not carry anything that has the 4 holes. We do have some electric jacks like the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 23" Lift - 5,000 lbs - Black, # JET-5000 that have a round plate to mount, but the holes are still lined up with the triangular mount design. Unfortunately you will either have to weld the bracket or drill holes in your coupler...

  • Recommended Bolt-On Coupler for R-Pod Camper
  • The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 referenced in your question should work just fine as a replacement on your R-Pod Camper. As you mentioned, the coupler has a bolt-on installation and a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. It is compatible with a 2 inch hitch ball and also features a cutout for a 2-1/4 inch round jack. There should be no issue with replacing the weld-on unit with this bolt-on coupler, but to be sure you might also check with the camper manufacturer just to...

  • Mounting Hole Spacing on Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler DM14793-81
  • I went to our warehouse and measured the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 to get you the dimensions you need. From the UNDERSIDE of the top plate, the part of the coupler that will actually contact the top of the A-frame, the hole centers are down 1-1/2-inches. If measured from the TOPSIDE of the coupler top plate the distance down to the hole centers is then 1-3/4-inches. The side to side hole spacing is 3-inches on-center on each side of the coupler. Each of these dimensions...

  • Is Mounting Hardware Included with Demco A-Frame Trailer Couplers
  • Hardware is not included with Demco coupler # DM14793-81. The reason for this is different applications can require different hardware whether it be length or material (because dissimilar metals can lead to corrosion problems).

  • Determining Weight Rating Needed for Trailer Coupler
  • The etrailer.com A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5210-B referenced in your question features an 8,000 pound weight capacity, which refers to the overall weight of the trailer. Since you plan on loading the trailer up over 9,000 pounds, this will not be the best option. We do have higher rated couplers available that would not require you to change from a 2 inch hitch ball, such as the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 that has a 10,000 pound capacity. I have also attached a link that...

  • Diameter of Mounting Holes for Demco Coupler part # DM14793-81
  • The mounting holes of the Demco Coupler part # DM14793-81 that you referenced are 1/2 inch in diameter. I'd go with a Grade 5 or higher 1/2 inch diameter bolt and matching nuts and you'd be good.

  • Are Trailer Coupler Repair Kits for a 2 Inch Coupler Brand Specific
  • If you are referring to a trailer coupler repair kit like part # CT-3000-RK then no, these are not universal nor can you use different brands together. If you can provide me with the exact make and model of your coupler via the engraving on top then we may have a coupler repair kit for you but more than likely you need to replace the coupler as they don't make very many kits, especially for older trailers. That said, for a replacement we have the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack...

  • How Can 2 Inch Coupler Be Rated for 10,000 lbs Towing Capacity?
  • The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch - Black - 2" Ball - Bolt On - 10K # DM14793-81 is rated accurately. There are a few 2 inch hitch balls like the Curt # A-90 which is rated to support that capacity. I've copied the page for all the options we have with a 2 inch ball and 10,000 lb capacity.

  • Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM14793-81 Will Not Couple/Uncouple 2 inch Hitch Ball
  • The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM14793-81 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for a hitch ball with a 2 inch diameter. To couple or uncouple your trailer you will simply lift the eZ-Latch in the upward position. If you were having difficulty coupling or uncoupling your trailer so much that it ruined your hitch ball you may want to make sure that you had the eZ-Latch in the upwards position and that you do not have a 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball that you are using.
