Video Transcript for etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - CA-5280-RB Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at an A-frame trailer coupler for a 2 and 5/16 inch 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. It's going to feature a gross weight capacity of 15,000 pounds with a maximum tow weight capacity of 2,250 pounds. The unit's going to feature a really nice, unique squeeze latch. This is going to allow for safe and easy coupling and uncoupling. To open up the socket to drop this over your hitch ball, you want to remove the included safety pin.

It's going to be connected with a little safety chain, so you don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it. Then what you would do is you would simply squeeze these 2 pieces together right here. Rotate the latch up until it clicks in the open position. It remains open, so now you can drop this over your hitch ball. Then you just want to make sure that once it's connected that this latching mechanism comes back down, that the holes line back up to where you can insert the included pin and clip, or you could also replace that with a coupler lock if you choose to for some added security.

If you'd like to do that, we do sell those separately here on our website. You can pick one up while you're here. The squeeze latch design, it's very easy to use. It's just a really nice system when it comes to coupling and uncoupling. The unit is going to be made from a steel construction. Nice, sturdy, durable construction.

The steel is going to feature a nice black powder coat finish. It's going to do a great job at standing up against rust and corrosion and lasting a long time. Here at the back, we're going to have the built-in jack attachment point. This is going to allow for quick and easy mountain of a round utility jack. That hole is going to give us a diameter of 2 and 1/4 of an inch, and it's going to have the 3 pre-drilled attachment holes for your round utility jack. When it comes to the overall dimensions, this is going to give us an overall length measurement, measuring from very back to very front of about 17 and 1/2 inches long. When it comes to the width, measuring the overall width from outer edge to outer edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 10 and 3/4 of an inch wide.

If we take a look inside to inside, that's going to measure about 10 and 1/4 of an inch. On that latching mechanism, I mentioned that the pin can be replaced with a lock. That pin hole is going to give us a diameter of 5/16 of an inch, and then the minimum span needed or the usable pin length needed is going to need to be at least an inch and 1/4 to work with this coupler. Again, if you're in need of a coupler lock, they are sold separately. You can find them here, etrailer.com, but it does come with the coupler pin. That's going to do it for today's look at the A-frame trailer coupler for a 2 and 5/16 inch hitch ball.

  • A-Frame Coupler Recommendation for 14k Trailer
  • Ram couplers are solid couplers that as long as you stay under the capacity of them they will work great. I would not recommend a 12.5k coupler on a 14k trailer though. Instead you'd want to go with a coupler with a 15k capacity like the part # CA-5280-RB instead. I attached a review video for this coupler for you to check out as well.

  • Dimensions of the A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5280-RB
  • I went out to the warehouse and measured the A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5280-RB and found that from the widest point to the smallest point it measured 10-9/16" and 2-5/8" respectively. This will give you the angle. The overall height of the piece that fits over the frame was about 3-7/8" while the inner height (where it site on the frame) measured about 3-1/4". I have attached a picture and a review video for you to check out.

  • Can etrailer.com A-Frame Trailer Coupler Be Adjusted
  • The etrailer.com A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5280-RB that you referenced does have a nice and convenient squeeze latch that allows for quick and safe coupling, but there aren't any adjustment points on the underside to tighten up a connection. Those bolts that you mentioned are just to hold the jaw in place. We do not have a standard A-frame coupler that has the ability to adjust like this. If you are experiencing a lot of movement with your current setup there might be some rust or...
