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 .

This is a great weld on coupler. I am very satisfied with it. I hauled a 10,000 lb trailer across the country with this coupeler.

excellent buy well made, at a fraction of the price I have seen at most retailers. I highly recommend this product. I am converting all my bumper pull trailers to this style coupling as I want to use one ball one type and never have worry about hooking up with the wrong 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.

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


Works well, like that it is easier to operate than the coupler on my old trailer. Seems easier to line up with the hitch ball and gives just a bit of wiggle room.

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


The metal underneath the paint is very rusty. See attached photos, I ended up wire wheeling, and grinding to get most of the rust off. I thought this was maybe a paint issue, but the rust ran deeper than I would have thought

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


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.

Review from a similar Sleeve-Lock Coupler 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 !

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.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler

  • What Angle Do The Frame Rails Need To Be To Use the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    The Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # CA-5296-B is designed for a standard 50 degree a-frame trailer. If you have an a-frame trailer then this is likely what you have as I would say a good 95% of a-frame trailers use the standard 50 degree angle. I don't have any CAD drawing of the above unfortunately but let me know if you do not have the standard 50 degree angle.

  • What Is The Narrowest A-Frame Coupler For Trailer?
    I have another option that may work better for you, but unfortunately we do not have a version of the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Flip Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - 12,500 lbs # CA-5296-B for an 18 degree angle frame. The closest option we have is the Demco 32-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch - Primed - 2-5/16" Ball - 21K # DM15633-97 which is for a 32 degree a-frame.

  • Options For Replacing 10,000 lb Atwood A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    Atwood is no longer in business, and because repair kits and replacement parts are manufacturer specific, the best option available is going to be a replacement A-frame coupler.
