Video Transcript for etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - CA-5400-B Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the a-frame trailer coupler for a two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball. The a-frame coupler's going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. This is a weld on installation and it's going to provide your connection point for your two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball. The coupler's going to feature a gross weight capacity of fourteen thousand pounds with a maximum of tongue weight capacity of twenty-one hundred pounds. It's also going to feature the thumb latch mechanism. That's this part right here.

Makes it very easy to clamp around the hitch ball for a nice tight secure connection. In order to open up the socket, all you have to do is place . I like to place an index finger underneath. Thumb on top, lift up and then pull it back. It's got a nice little groove right here that the latch sits in so that way it remains in the open position without any extra pins and clips or without having to hold it open. It's going to do it on it's own.

It's a really nice design. That opens up the socket area, right here. That way we can drop the coupler on top of our two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball. Once we have it in there, we want to connect it. All we have to do is lift this up, it's going to slide back and then all the way down.

That's going to secure the hitch ball inside the socket. The unit's made from a steel construction. It's going to feature a really nice black powder coat finish with is going to offer really great protection from rust and corrosion. Here at the back of the coupler, you can see that this right here is going to be the attachment hole for the a round utility jack. That's going to give us a diameter of two and one quarter of an inch and it's going to have three threaded mount holes for your round utility jack. We're going to take a look at some of the overall dimensions real quick starting with the overall length. From very back to very front, that's going to give us a measurement of about twelve and seven-eighths of an inch long.

There's a couple different width measurements that I want to do with you. We're going to go overall so outer edge to outer edge. That's going to give us an overall width measurement of about ten and seven-eighths of an inch. Next, what I want to do is inside edge to inside edge. That's going to give us a measurement of about ten and three-eights of an inch. Right here on the actual latch mechanism, there's going to be a small pin hole. That's designed to accept a coupler pin or a coupler lock. That pin hole is five-sixteenths of an inch. The minimum span needed, if you interested in a coupler pin or a coupler lock, measuring from this point here to this point here, that's going to be seven-eighths of an inch. If you are in need of a coupler pin or 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 two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball.

  • I do have an option for you but we no longer carry the Coupler Repair Kit for Atwood 2-5/16" Yoke Style part 15774. Instead, I recommend replacing the entire coupler for which you can use the A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # CA-5400-B. Atwood was bought out by Lippert and their parts are becoming increasingly harder to find which is why I recommend a replacement coupler. This coupler fits most standard a-frame trailers and will accept a 2-5/16" hitch ball. It also has a black powder coat...

  • Difference Between Finishes of A-Frame Couplers CA5400 and CA5400-B
  • The oily finish of the A-Frame Coupler with Oily Finish # CA5400 that you referenced is designed to fight off corrosion. But it's pretty messy when handling so I'd recommend going with the painted version part # CA-5400-B instead.

You can replace it with the same unit, the A-Frame Coupler # CA5400 which has has an oily finish but the same one is available without the oily finish and a black coat of paint, the A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5400-B.

  • The A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Thumb Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - Weld On - 14,000 lbs # CA-5400-B is designed to fit over the frame of your trailer and sit flat. The angle of the trailer frame to the bottom of the coupler shouldn't change as this is not an underslung coupler. They will be parallel. The angle of the trailer frame side to side is most likely what you are asking and it is the standard 50 degree angle.

  • Locks for A-Frame Trailer Coupler
  • We have all sort of trailer locks including coupler locks for a-frame trailer couplers. Please refer to the linked page that displays all standard coupler locks. You can use a universal-fit surround-type lock such as # ML389DAT which fits all ball sizes and that prevents someone from hitching to your trailer by clocking access to the coupler, or a simple latch type lock like # e98889 that prevents the coupler latch (like the one on # CA-5400-B) from being lifted to unlock the coupler.

  • What Trailer Frame Angle Should A-Frame Trailer be Made to To Fit Standard Couplers
  • So the standard angle for A-frame trailers where the two beams meet is 50 degrees. So while I can't get you a CAD drawing for the coupler part # CA-5400-B if you are trying to design your trailer to have the correct angle for the A-frame you should make it as close to 50 degrees as you can and standard couplers like this will fit and work well.

  • Can You Tighten An A-Frame Coupler Or Must It Be Replaced
  • If you feel the connection point between your trailer coupler and hitch ball is too loose then the trailer coupler will need to be replaced because there is no way to tighten this. The connection point does need to be loose enough for the coupler to rotate on the hitch ball but not loose enough where you have a bunch of play. If you are in doubt it would be wise to replace the entire trailer coupler for both peace of mind and security. In some cases, you can obtain a trailer coupler repair...

  • Available A-Frame Trailer Couplers for Trailer with Electric Drum Brakes
  • If your trailer uses electric drum brakes then you do not need a brake actuator-type a-frame coupler like # T4067600. Instead you can use a standard a-frame coupler like # CA-5210-B since your brakes' power will come from the signal carried on the 7-way trailer wiring harness. You will want to choose a coupler that matches or exceeds the trailer's GVWR, its gross vehicle weight rating. The coupler referenced above is rated for 8000-lb trailers but we have lots of similar a-frame couplers...

  • Is There an A-Frame Trailer Jack for a 2 Inch Opening
  • I have a few options for you but almost all a-frame trailer jacks has a 2-1/4" diameter outer tube. Therefore, in order to install an a-frame trailer jack like the Bulldog Round A-Frame Jack part # BD155022 which has a 2-1/4" diameter outer tube you will either need to simply open up the hole you have another 1/4" or replace the trailer coupler with one like the A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # CA-5210-B or part # CA-5400-B. Although not ideal because of instability issues, there is also...
