Video Transcript for etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - CA-5100-Z Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at an A frame trailer coupler for a 2-inch hitch ball. This A frame coupler's going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It is a weld on installation. It's going to provide the connection point for your 2-inch hitch ball. The coupler's going to feature a gross weight capacity of 5,000 pounds with a maximum tow weight capacity of 700 pounds. It's going to feature the trigger latch mechanism.

This is going to allow for safe and easy coupling and uncoupling. To open up the socket area to receive the hitch ball, all you have to do is pull up on this trigger right there and then lift up on the latch. It's going to move to an open position. This is when you can place your coupler over your 2-inch hitch ball. To secure it, just simply push it back down until it latches in place.

You can see it's going to securely hold the hitch ball inside that socket area of the coupler. When you're ready to disconnect, lift up on the trigger, lift up on the latch and it's going to release from the connection to the hitch ball. It's a really nice design, very easy and simple to use. The unit's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's oing to have a clear zinc finish so it's going to provide great protection from rust and corrosion. Here at the back you can that it's got the built in jack attachment hole or jack attachment point.

This is going to allow for quick and easy mounting of a round utility jack. That jack hole is going to give us a diameter measurement of 2 1/4 inch and then it's also going to feature the 3 pre-drilled already threaded mount holes for your round utility jack. When it comes to the overall dimensions of the coupler, it's going to give us an overall length measurement measuring from very back to very front of 13 3/8 inch long. When it comes to the width, outer edge to outer edge so overall width, we're looking at about 10 inches. Internal width from inside edge to inside edge, that's going to give a measurement pretty close to 9 1/2 inches wide. The other thing I want to point out is right here on the latch mechanism, you're going to notice a small pin hole.

That's designed for a coupler pin or coupler lock. That pin hole diameter is 5/16 of an inch and then the span that you would need or the usable pin length so from outer edge to outer edge right here, that's going to measure 5/8 of an inch. If you're in need of a coupler pin or coupler lock, they are sold separately and they can be found right here at Etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at the A frame trailer coupler for 2-inch hitch ball.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler


  • Replacement for Shelby 5101 Coupler
  • Based on my research the Shelby 5101 is an A-frame coupler with a 2" ball and 5,000 lb capacity. We have exactly that with the A-Frame Coupler # CA5100B, which has a trigger latch and has a black paint finish. The same coupler is available with a simple zinc finish, part # CA-5100-Z. I've added links to video reviews of both couplers for you to take a look at.

  • Best Replacement for Shelby 5101 A-Frame Coupler
  • There are no repair kits for Shelby couplers because the company was acquired some time ago; your best option at this point would be to get a new coupler.

  • Could A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5100-Z be Bolted On
  • There really is no reason you couldn't bolt on the coupler part # CA-5100-Z but there isn't a recommended way to do so. Best option would be to drill several holes spaced evenly on the a-frame portion of the coupler to the trailer frame. You'd want to use Grade 5 or higher hardware too.

  • Replacement Coupler for Trailer to Replace Shelby 5101
  • Shelby has been out of business for quite sometime so the best option you'll find is replacing the coupler with a new one.
