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

Today we're going to be taking a look at an A-Frame Trailer Coupler for a 2" Hitch Ball. This A-Frame coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It is a weld-on installation, that's going to provide the connection point for your 2" hitch ball. It's going to feature a gross weight capacity of 7,000 pounds, with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,050 pounds. Now, this coupler is going to use a sleeve lock design, that this collar right here. Here at the head, it's actually a 2-piece design.

You can see this little line right here. Once this collar is slid back, this piece right here will kick out to the side, and that means that it's ready to accept the 2" hitch ball. It's also going to feature a pin style fastener, that's going to hold the collar in place. Around the hitch ball for a secure connection. Now, that can be replaced with a locking pin, that item is sold separately, and you can find them here at etrailer.com. In order to open up the unit to connect to our trailer.

We would need to release the pin. It's going to be held in place with a nice little safety chain, so we don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it. Then what you would do is you would simply lift up on this large lever. You can see how that slides the collar back, and then it kicks this out to the side. At this point, it would be ready to connect to a 2" hitch ball just like that.

Then to connect it, so once you have that dropped over your hitch ball. I recommend holding the lever up, that way the collar doesn't slide down on your fingers. I also found out that if you just push up here in this area, that the collar doesn't slide far enough to actually hit your fingers. I'm going to show you both ways. I recommend holding the lever up, pushing that piece in and then release in the lever down. Then you would reinsert the pin to secure it in place, or what you could do is you can simply just push in on this part right here.

Then the collar slides up, and the lever goes back down on its own. Then all you have to do is place the pin back in, and then secure it by clipping it over on the other side. Now, the unit's going to be made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a black powder coat finish which is going to provide protection from rust and corrosion. Here at the back, we're going to have the built-in jack attachment point. That's going to allow for quick and easy mounting of your round utility jack. That jack hole diameter, that's going to measure 2 1/4", and then it has the pre-drilled holes back here. That's going to be 3 holes, and they're already pre-threaded as well. When it comes to the overall dimension, starting with the overall length. Measuring from very back to very front. It's going to give us a measurement of about 16, and it looks to measure 16 1/4". The overall width, I'm going to measure outer edge to outer edge. That's going to give a measurement of about 10" 1/4", then inside to inside, that's going to give a measurement of about 9 3/4". Here on the latch mechanism, you can see where that pin's installed. The diameter of that pinholes are going to be 5/16", so it will accept the 5/16" diameter pin. Then the mininum span or usable pin length that you would need if you want to replace this pin with a locking pin is going to be 2 1/4". If you're in need of a coupler lock, they are sold separately and again they can find them here at etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at the A-Frame Trailer Coupler for a 2" Hitch Ball.

I'm rating this as Excellent!! I received my shipment today. Very well packaged, construction appears to be extremely heavy duty, very nice design, and durable paint. This far exceeds the quality of my original factory stamped steel coupler on my trailer now. This is for my winter project so I'm sure it will function as advertised. 272320

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


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

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

The quality of the coupler is good and the price was excellent. I order my part on Saturday evening and they shipped it Monday afternoon. I had my part on Wednesday. Cannot ask for better service than that. This is not my first time ordering from “ETrailer”. They are my first choice when looking for something hitch related. Ben 811982

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


The mounting channel on my trailer was actually 2-7/8" inside. I was worried this wouldn't fit because the Bulldog hitches on etrailer specify that they are for a 2-7/8" channel, but this hitch says it fits a 3" channel. I guess it's a nominal measurement. It fit great and came with grade 8 bolts and locking nuts, plus zinc-plated fender washers. I've used Bulldog brand hitches for many years for a rental equipment fleet that I maintain, and I am happy to report that these are just as good as the other more expensive hitches. I prefer this style latching mechanism. I believe this is the safest hitch because they are easily identified visually as latched or unlatched. I will be buying them again for more of my rental equipment! 768020
