I switch all of my couplers to the bulldog couplers . They’re some of the best around! Fast shipping as usual!


Good quality parts...Thick metal should hold up to heavy use.


Part came as described and works better than original factory coupler.


Excellent prompt service


Took forever to ship


Awesome replacement for the hitch that was on our cargo trailer when purchased. We like the more sure and easier coupling with this style hitch.

Hitch has proved to be a great purchase.
Delbert C - 03/03/2021


Is good quality. Does the job I need it to do.

Fine. Gets a little hard to operate if not used for awhile.
Steve A - 11/10/2021


What I wanted and delivered in a timely manner !! Thanks again !!


Was a little skeptical at first but this is a heavy duty trailer hitch. I have finished building my trailer and the latching mechanism works great and it was easy to install. This product is just as good if not better than Bulldog and at a lot nicer price. You can't go wrong with this one.

Its been a year and I love my hitch no problems whatsoever I have pulled this thing everywhere and not a single flaw you wont go wrong with this one.
Larry S - 08/12/2017


Solid coupler very secure connection to vehicle. Will probably try and use this type from now on if I can

Works great very secure couple
Mark - 12/11/2017


This hitch came in in record time and was better than the original hitch that came on the trailer.

its still better than the original
David A - 09/14/2017


Typical Chinese quality. The load rating stamping on the coupler is very weak. A little paint over it and it won’t even be readable. You get what you pay for.


I really like this product, because it connects simple and easy! Also, it's well designed, durable, and extremely strong! I have one on my other trailer which was installed by the manufacturer. This lead me to find the same replacement for my current trailer repair, where the inferior style of the thin pressed sheet metal wore and pressed the 2" ball up through the top of the capture sphere. If practical, my advice is to consider upgrading the two steel spars from 3" to 4". As this provides more surface area for the connecting weld bead. As a practical disclaimer. Please consult a structural engineer who is knowledgeable in weights and balances and DOT trailer standards. Stay Safe!


Loved the personal service and the help. I tried a few other sources before going online to order from etrailer. One place I tried was an online tool dealer, and their online site was a mess without help and so was a retail location. etrailer, was quick to find me exactly what I needed and got me fixed up in just a few minutes. From now on all my trailer needs will be fulfilled from etrailer!!!


Everything is good super fast and easy berry berry good


Looks good haven’t installed yet but im pressed.


Great company to order from. Super easy web site . Large inventory of trailer parts. Fast shipping and correct parts shipped. Packaging for shipment is awesome, never had anything damaged in transit. Highly recommend them to anyone. Pricing is very good as well.


Fast shipping and just what I ordered. I have not used this product yet


Works great. Fits perfect, easy install. Durable product. Have changed all my trailers to this coupler. Highly recommend.


I think it is far superior to other styles of trailer couplings.


Great fitment and fast delivery


The shipment of the coupler cam in earlier than expected. It was he right product the first time. I personally do not order many things online. I was however very please with etrailer and how quickly they expedited my order. Thank you and I look forward to doing business with etrailer in the future.


Your coupler replaced a damaged coupler on a light duty utility trailer. Works fine.


Product arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. I will order from again. What a pleasant experience. Thank you!!!


Great product. Have one on all five of my trailers. Sturdy and well built. Fits perfectly and easy to install.

  • Is Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B Designed for Weld On 50 Degree A-Frames
    Yes, the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B that you referenced is a weld-on coupler designed to fit 50 degree A-frame trailers like you mentioned. Nearly all A-frame trailers are 50 degree so it's hard to find A-frame couplers that are designed for a different angle.

  • Determining True Capacity of Trailer When Title and Coupler List Different Limits
    A trailer is always going to be limited by its weakest component. This means that even if everything else on the trailer (axle, hubs, wheels, suspension, etc) is rated for 7,000 pounds, you will still need to adhere to the 5,000 pound limit on the coupler. I'm not really sure why a trailer manufacturer would install a lower rated coupler on a trailer. It's also possible that it wasn't the manufacturer but a previous owner who needed to replace the coupler and simply didn't pay close enough...

  • Diameter of Neck on Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    The diameter of the neck on the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Flip Latch - Black - 2" Ball - 7,000 lbs # CA-5196-B is 2-1/4".

  • Extended A-Frame Coupler with 2 Inch Ball for a Casita Travel Trailer
    Yes, there are trailer couplers that have a greater distance between the center of the coupler where the ball sits to the center of the jack tube hole. However, this is not really by design for this exact purpose and I am not sure it would get you the extra clearance you need to lower your tailgate without hitting the tongue jack. The best option for this is an extended ball mount like you are using now. That said, the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # CA-5196-B will provide...

  • Does BlayLock Coupler Lock # BLTL-22 Fit 2003 Ram Collar Lock Style Coupler
    Yes, the BlayLock Coupler Lock part # BLTL-22 does fit your Ram coupler jack that is a collar lock style like the # CA-5196-B. Your Ram coupler and the # CA-5196-B are the same as they are both made by same company.

  • Compatibility of Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler CA-5196-B with Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount
    I pulled both the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B that you have on your trailer and the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS6-25 from our warehouse in order to ensure they will fit without issue. When attaching the coupler to the 2 inch hitch ball, there was plenty of clearance between the lip of the coupler and the vertical surface on the ball mount. I have attached an image that shows this fit for you to check out. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount is a great product with a built...

  • Where is the etrailer Coupler Item # CA-5196-B Made?
    The Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Flip Latch - Black - 2" Ball - 7,000 lbs item # CA-5196-B is made by Pacific Boat Trailers out of Chino, California with parts coming from China. If you are looking for an American made A-frame Trailer Coupler I recommend the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch - Black - 2" Ball - Bolt On - 10K Item # DM14793-81. This has the same dimensions but a slightly higher capacity and is made in the USA.

  • 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.

  • Replacement for Shelby 5107 A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    Based on my research the Shelby 5107 coupler looks to be an A-frame coupler that accepts a 2" ball, though I was unable to find the weight capacity as this seems to be an older coupler. For a replacement coupler there are a few different options, depending on the weight capacity you require. These are all bolt-on A-frame couplers that accept a 2" ball: - 5,000 lbs: A-Frame Coupler with Black Paint Finish # CA5100B - 7,000 lbs: Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Flip Latch # CA-5196-B -...

  • Recommended Coupler And Hitch Lock Combination Keyed Alike
    For your sleeve-lock coupler, I recommend the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock and Coupler Lock Set - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # 3794DAT. This will give you the hitch lock, the coupler ball lock and the pin lock. This kit is the best kit that has all three components keyed alike. If you want a better fit, you may need to move to a system with different keys. This Master Lock Set is very nice, but if you want the best coupler lock, I recommend you get something like the Blaylock...

  • Coupler Solution for A-Frame Trailer that Has Non-Standard Angle for A-Frame
    The Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B was designed for attaching to the standard 50 degree a-frame channels found at the front of trailers. If you have a different angle that doesn't sit flush a better choice might be to go with a channel mounted style coupler like the part # BDA2003C0317. The channel welds to the front of the trailer where the channels meet and the coupler then attaches into the channel.
