This coupler combines with a Lock 'N' Roll vehicle-end hitch (sold separately) to create a safe, secure, fully articulating connection that's great for towing whether you're on the road or off-road. It's more secure than a traditional ball coupler, and it's more comfortable and quieter than a pintle setup. The Lock 'N' Roll connects quickly and easily, and can adapt to any towing conditions.


Strong, Safe Connection

When using a traditional ball coupler, it can be hard to tell if the coupler is fully latched around the ball. You can head out assuming the connection is secure, only to have the trailer pop off of the ball and disconnect while you're towing. With the Lock 'N' Roll, that won't happen.


Lock N Roll Connected

This unique coupler is designed to interlock with a matching vehicle-side hitch to form a tight, secure connection. Unlike on a ball coupler, the latching components on the Lock 'N' Roll system are easy to see, so you can tell at a glance if the connection is secure.


Once secure, the Lock 'N' Roll setup offers a wide range of motion, which makes for a smooth ride. Because of the articulating action of the combined coupler and hitch, the Lock 'N' Roll connection can handle the harsh bumps and road shock that could otherwise stress and potentially damage a ball coupler.


The Lock 'N' Roll connection also makes your trailer less vulnerable to theft. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.


With the Lock 'N' Roll, you can have peace of mind knowing your connection will not come apart or succumb to damage caused by road shock, nor will your trailer be vulnerable to theft.


Comfortable Off-Road Towing

The pintle hitch connection is the most common setup when towing off road because of the flexibility in the connection. But that flexible connection can also result in a lot of slop. This can cause uncomfortable jerking as well as rattle and noise. In addition, when using a pintle/lunette ring setup, it can be difficult to back up your vehicle and trailer without jackknifing. And it can be hard to disconnect at certain angles, which may be a necessity when overlanding.


The Lock 'N' Roll assembly, on the other hand, offers a close-fit, slop-free connection that's designed for off-roading. This close-fitting design provides a smoother ride than a pintle/lunette ring connection with less rattle. It also makes it easy to back your vehicle and trailer up without jackknifing.


Offroading Jeep with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch

With the trailer end and vehicle end combined, the Lock 'N' Roll setup also creates a fully articulating connection that's great for off-roading. The bearing that's built into the vehicle-end hitch allows for 360 degrees of rotation, which means that your trailer could actually roll all the way over and not take your vehicle with it. The connection also pivots side to side and up and down, making it easy to take rough trails without jarring your setup. This also allows for fast and easy disconnection, even at extreme angles.


How Lock 'N' Roll Works

Lock N Roll Fully Connected

Each Lock 'N' Roll setup requires 2 parts - a trailer end and a vehicle end. Together they create a strong, secure connection. To connect, just line up the trailer end and vehicle end together and place the outer metal tabs of the trailer-end coupler into the hooks on the vehicle-end hitch. Then fold the latching plates on the vehicle-end hitch down and secure them in place over the tabs using the pin and clip included with your vehicle-side hitch. With the latching plates secured, the Lock 'N' Roll assembly will stay firmly connected.


In Action Diagram

When the trailer-side coupler and vehicle-side hitch are secured together, they form an articulating assembly with 3 axes of directional motion. The uniquely designed bearing on the vehicle-side hitch allows the connection to rotate a full 360 degrees. The trailer-side coupler's hinge allows the connection to pivot to the left and to the right. And when the 2 sides are joined, the tabs will roll inside of the hooks so that the entire assembly can tilt up and down.


Towing with the Lock 'N' Roll is easy, and it gives you a connection that's both flexible and secure.


Get Maximum Security Locking Pins

Get extra security for your trailer. InfiniteRule makes hitch pin locks (IR59FR - sold separately) specifically for this Lock 'N' Roll articulating hitch. You'll get two stainless steel locks: one with a 1/2" diameter pin, and one with a 5/8" diameter pin. These will replace the standard pins and clips on the driver-side and trailer-side of your coupler.

Product came on time for excited to get it. Welded onto the trailer and get some use out of it. It’s exactly what I’m looking for a very heavy duty should work excellent for my little camping trailer. Thank you for a speedy delivery.

After trying this system on my T@G off-road version teardrop I changed all my trailers to this (3 total) from the standard 2" ball. I've had my T@G through some rough trails and this system works excellent.

I highly recommend.

Awesome product

Greatest invention ever ! the manufacturer builds a travel trailer that they sell with off road tires and promotes it as a off road trailer with a standard ball hitch. I was so unhappy with the trailer until I found this on etrailer.com It works great. Thanks etrailer !!

After a 4 wheeling trip to Colorado I realized my ball and socket hitch was not adequate for pulling my trailer into the back country camping areas. One of the guys on the trip had a Lock and Roll coupler on his Jeep and it worked just as it was designed to. I ordered one as soon as I got home. We are headed back to Colorado in July and it will get a good workout. It’s also great not to have to worry about the old style hitch binding and breaking and leaving me stranded!

  • Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler A-Frame Dimensions
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 dimensions for the A-frame are 2.19" at the narrowest part and 11.22" at the widest part of the opening. It is 9.68" long from largest opening to narrowest. I have included a picture below with these measurements as well.

  • Could Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 be Bolted to a Trailer Frame
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 is listed as a weld-on application because it doesn't have bolt holes and was left unfinished to make the welding job easier. If you were willing to drill holes in the coupler you certainly could bolt it to your trailer. I'd recommend painting it to help fight corrosion. I attached a page that has all of the ball mount solutions that go with this for you to check out. Main difference between them is the amount of drop they all have.

    I don't have much info on the Military M101a Trailers but I can see they're A-Frames so assuming it's the standard 50 degree A-Frame the best Lock N Roll setup to use will be the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler part # 336TS504.

  • How to Level Trailer With Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Coupler
    I'm assuming you're speaking of a 2 inch drop on the ball mount you're currently using, is that correct? If so, the # 336VS503505 Lock N Roll articulating ball mount you'd looked at would allow for a 2 inch drop to properly level your trailer. The premise for a Lock N Roll is the same as for a ball/coupler. You want to put the vehicle side of the connection at the proper height so the trailer is pulled as close to level as you can get it. You'll also need the corresponding Lock N Roll...

  • Converting Pintle Setup of M416 Stevens Military Trailer to Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler
    Since your Stevens M416 has an A-frame design the correct coupler setup you'd need for your trailer to use a Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler would be the part # 336TS504 which was designed for A-frame trailers for a direct fit that won't extend the trailer tongue. This would have to be welded on which I am sure you wouldn't have an issue with. If you were really wanting to extend the tongue of the trailer out though you'd have to use the # 336TS508 instead and find someone willing to...

  • Trailer Hitch Vertical Adjustment For Lock N Roll Coupler
    Vertical adjustability is not required on both sides. In most cases the trailer side is usually fixed # 336TS504 and the vehicle side usually has the adjustments # 336VS503505. As long as the trailer and towing vehicle are level these adjustments aren't needed. If you wanted to use the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS502 on your trailer side to get adjustments, you can weld something like this # 336TS518 on your trailer.

  • Does The Lock N Roll Trailer Hitch and Coupler Affect Backing Up The Trailer?
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 along with the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch # 336VS503505 is no more difficult to back up a trailer than a standard ball and coupler. As there is less resistance in the motion of this coupler you also do not have to worry about the trailer sticking on the ball mount and not turning especially in the snow when you begin to turn and the rear end of the vehicle begins to slide.

    Yes, the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 will fit as a replacement for the standard coupler on your 2021 Forest River No Boundaries 10.6. You will of course also need the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch # 336VS503505 for your receiver to then tow your trailer.

  • Will the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler Fit a Karvana Trailer
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler part # 336TS504 fits a standard 50 degree a-frame so it's a go for a Karvana trailer. You'll need to grind off or unbolt the old coupler then weld the new one on, easy work for any decent welder. If you need the vehicle side I recommend the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch w/ 3-Position Channel part # 336VS503505.

  • Correct Trailer Side Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler
    I do have some options for a Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler. The correct one will be based on frame type, part # 336TS504 for a-frame and part # 336TS528, part # 336TS506, or part # 336TS508 for straight tongue. These will all pair perfectly with any of the vehicle side Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitchs like part # 336VS501.

  • Trailer Side Options for Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Setup
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch w/ 3-Position Channel - 2" Receivers # 336VS503505 is just the vehicle side of the equation. The reason for this is because not all trailers have the same setup. For the trailer side we have a few options based on the style of the trailer. The part # 336TS528 is for a 2 inch straight channel, the part # 336TS504 is for an A-frame trailer, # 336TS506 is for a 2-1/2 inch straight coupler, and # 336TS508 is for a 3 inch straight channel.

  • Which Lock N Roll Coupler Fits On a 2005 Strarcraft RT10 Pop Up Camper?
    Based on the images you sent in it appears your 2005 Starcraft RT10 does not use a traditional A-Frame coupler so the Lock N Roll # 336TS504 will not work for your application. Instead you will need to measure the width between your frame rails the current coupler sits at where you see the welds. This will allow you to weld in a 2" # 336TS528, 2-1/2" # 336TS506 or 3" # 336TS508 channel style coupler. Do note these measurements are for the inside the coupler measurement so you will need...

    There will be no safety issues and you can absolutely back up with the Lock N Roll articulating coupler, no matter which one you use. Backing straight up won't be problematic and it will even be a bit easier to maneuver when turning due to the articulation. I'm not sure what coupler you need for your trailer, so here are all the trailer-side Lock N Roll couplers: - 2" Channel: Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS528 - 2-1/2" Channel: Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS506 -...

  • Locks that Can Be Used with Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Setups
    Since the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch # 336VS503505 that you referenced has a hollow shank you can use the hitch lock/anti-rattle device # 63232 as a really great lock setup that will also prevent any rattling of the accessory in your hitch. The matching trailer side coupler is the part # 336TS528 for a pole tongue trailer or # 336TS504 for an a-frame style coupler. This type of coupler does not have a lock made for it but the good news is that it's so unique the likelihood of a thief...

  • What is Weight Capacity of Lock N Roll Coupler part # 336TS504
    The pivoting bolt or pin that the Lock N Roll Coupler part # 336TS504 has is made from a hardened steel that as rigorously tested for capacity and found to be capable of handling up to 11,000 lbs of trailer weight and also meets SAE J684 towing safety regulations. A standard hitch ball uses a similar "bolt" if you will as the threaded portion of the ball that fits into the ball mount hole is a very similar concept.

    Yes, the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for 2" Receivers # 336VS511 does need the trailer to have a matching Lock N Roll coupler.

  • Installation of Lock N Roll Coupler on Travel Trailer
    Since you have a travel trailer I'm assuming you have an A-frame coupler on it. If that is the case, the only option would be to cut that off and weld on the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504. I understand not wanting to have to do this, but assuming you plan on off-road towing or overlanding it will be worth it. We recommend taking it to a certified welder for installation. On the vehicle side you will also want a Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch like # 336VS503505.

You'd have to have your old coupler removed and this one welded in place of it.

  • Rotating Coupler Option For Motorcycle Trailer
    While there are rotating/articulating couplers and mounts, there aren't any that work with a trailer hitch ball as that would be too much rotation, both on the coupler and the hitch ball. So you would need a different connection type from Lock N Roll, which interlocks with the coupler bolt and pin from the mount. I'm not sure which type of tongue your trailer has, but there is a weld-on option for an A-frame trailer, and weld-on or bolt-on options for different sized straight-tongue trailers: -...
