Video Transcript for etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - CA-5196-B Review

Today we'll going to be taken a look at an A-frame trailer couplet for a 2 inch hitch ball. This couplet real light. You'll hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It is a weld on installation. It's going to feature a gross weight capacity of 7,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,050 pounds. That's going to feature the sleeve lock design that's going to ensure a tight fit around the hitch ball for secure connection, and it's got the pin style fastener to hold the collar in place around the hitch ball for the secure connection.

That can be replaces with a locking pin. A locking pin is sold separately. If you're interested in one you can find them here at Etrailer.com. I want to show you how to open and close the unity. It's a really nice design. To open it up we would need to remove the pin.

That's going to be held on to the coupler with the safety chain. So you don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it. Then, what you would do is you would use this large lever here on top. You just push it. Kicks the collar back and then it shoots this out to the side, which is going to open the unit to receive the 2 inch hitch ball on the trailer, on your vehicle. You would take your coupler that's attached to the trailer, drop it over the hitch ball, and then to secure it in place what you would do is, I like to hold the lever down, push in on this piece, and then slowly release the lever, and it slides the collar back over that area there offering the secure connection that we need around the ball.

That'll secure it. You would always want to make sure you re-install the pin. Place that through and then secure it by making that clip go over to the other side. so really nice design. Very easy to use. The coupler itself is made from a sturdy steal construction, and it's going to have a black powder coated finish on it, so it's going to add a lot of protection especially from resting corrosion.

Here at the back we're going to have the built in jack attachment hole. That's going to have a diameter of 2 1/4 of an inch. It's also going to feature the three pre-drilled, pre-threaded holes for easy installation of your round utility jack. We're going take a measurement of that hole real quick. That's going to give us a diameter of 2 1/4 of an inch. The overall length measurement that we have, measuring from very back to very front. That's going to give us a measurement, looks to be right around 16 1/4 of an inch. Going to take a width measurement. That's going to give us a measurement from outer edge to outer edge. That looks to be about 10 1/4 an inch. Internal measurement inside edge to inside edge it's going to be about 9 3/4 of an inch. Now again on the latch mechanism it does feature that included pin that can be replaces with a locking pin, or a coupler lock. The diameter of that hole is going to measure 5/16 of an inch, and then the minimum span needed, or the usable pin length needed for a coupler lock is going to be 2 1/4 of an inch. If you're in need of a coupler lock they are sold separately and you can find it right here at Etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at the A-frame trailer couplet for a 2 inch hitch ball.

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. 282518

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!!! 466193

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! 262131

Review from a similar etrailer Sleeve-Lock in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Love these things, we have many trailers, small and large, installed this style couple on all of them! Only one gave us trouble, we jack knifed it and dented the slip collar so it wouldnt release, so we hammered it back, detached, cut the collar in two halves, removed the sleavespring, and welded the halves back over the coupler, took 15min and it works good as new, other style couplers are destroyed by the accidental jack knifing, not these ! 278786

Review from a similar etrailer Sleeve-Lock in A-Frame Trailer Coupler


Good coupler, it does the job. My only viable complaint is the weight limit of 7,000#. What would one expect for a 2" ball? Also, make sure the couple is locked in place once you seat the trailer on the hitch. I had my trailer jump off the ball once. That was purely my fault. I didn't secure the sleeve. Overall, I'd recommend it 362676

Love the design of this with the gear tooth handle. Much more sturdy than the thin levered one that came with trailer. Also the best price ive found on these anywhere. Recieved very fast. Its so much quicker to buy local if youre already starting your project but the money i saved and quality of product was worth a few days wait. 601581

Do you have a question about this A-Frame Trailer Coupler?


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Coupler That Will Not Release
  • With a sleeve-lock A-frame coupler like # CA-5196H-B or # CA-5196-B with the flip latch you can sometimes loosen the coupler's grip on the hitch ball by standing on the vehicle bumper and rocking it or jumping to cause motion of the ball within the coupler. This will often help loosen things up. Applying ball grease # 58117 when you couple the vehicle and trailer is a good idea since this will tend to prevent entry of water (that can cause corrosion) and also block road grit and other...

  • 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...
