Video Transcript for etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - CA-5296-B 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. You've got the connection point for your hitch ball up here at the socket. The unit's going to feature a gross weight capacity of 12,500 pounds and a maximum tunneling capacity of 1,875 pounds. The unit's going to feature this sleeve-lock design that's going to ensure a nice, tight, secure fit around the hitch ball. And it's going to have the pin-style fastener to hold the collar in place around the ball for a secure connection.

That can be replaced with a locking pin. Your locking pin is sold separately but we do carry those at etrailer.com if you're interested. Now to open the unit to connect to a hitch ball, first we would need to go ahead and remove the pin. That's going to be held onto the coupler with a safety chain so we don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing that. It's got this larger lever here on top that we can just slide open, just like that very easy to do, and it kicks out this piece here which means that our socket or coupler is open to receive the hitch ball. Now we can drop this on our hitch ball and to secure it, we simply just need to push this back in and release the collar back down. The easiest way I find to do that, is to push in on the lever, push in on this piece right here and slowly let the collar back over that piece.

When it's fully down we can go ahead and take the pin, re-insert it and secure it by placing the clip on the other side. Now this coupler is made from a steel construction. It's going to feature a black powder-coat finish on it, so it's going to be protected from rust and corrosion. At the back it's going to have the built-in jack attachment point. It's going to allow for quick and easy mounting of a round utility jack and it's going to have the 3 pre-drilled pre-threaded mount holes for your round utility jack. Now when it comes to the overall dimensions of the coupler, measuring from very back to very front, we're looking at an overall measurement of about 17 and 1/4 of an inch. The overall width measuring from edge-to-edge, this is going to give us an overall measurement of about 10 and 1/4 of an inch.

Then internal, so inside edge to inside edge, we're looking at about 9 and 3/4 of an inch wide. Now on the latch mechanism, I did mention that you can replace the included pin, the locking pin. That pinhole's going to measure 5/16th of an inch in diameter, and then you need to make sure that your pin has a minimum span or usable pin length of at least 2 and 1/4 of an inch to work with this coupler. If you're in need of a coupler lock, they are sold separately and 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 a 2 and 5/16 hitch ball .

While planning the build of my ATV trailer I found E Trailer was easy to shop their web page. Placed my order and receivied very good communications about receiving my order, shipping my order with shipping information, then the day it was delivered a follow up to make sure everything was as expected? Yes it was as I had expected, every part was the correct part and the quality I had demanded. Thank you for easy business. 330145

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

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

A good solid piece. However, the bevel on the top mine looked like it was done with a chain saw. A minute with the grinder and a quick shot of paint and it looks perfect. 688690

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

Honestly disappointed with my order. It is as described and seems to be heavy duty. Got here in a timely manner. My complaint is that the paint is peeling off and is rusted bad out of the box! Not super excited about that especially since im going to be installing it on my newly painted trailer 592039

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
