Exact replacement for my 10,000 lb (gross trailer weight) enclosed cargo trailer. I had a professional welder install it, loaded the trailer to 10k, and pulled it 2,000 miles. Works and looks as expected.

by:

Website easy to use. Found exactly what I needed. Very fair price. I needed the coupler soon so I used 3 day shipping. Came when scheduled. Was correct piece. I could not find this piece in my town. One of the trailer repair shops told me about the website. Will definitely use again when I need something for my trailers. Don’t have a picture but it looks like it did when the trailer was new.

Just purchased this coupler for the lowbed I am getting ready to rebuild. Like the look and the price of the coupler. Can't wait to cut away the mess the prior owner welded on. figuring the new coupler, jack, safety chains and wiring coupler box will make this a nice complete lowbed trailer to fill my needs for moving my 4x4 Cub Cadet tractor around for working on our properties.

May have given a higher score if not for the fact that it came with quite a few scratches, scrapes, and scuffs. Looked like it had been rattling around with other metal parts. So I had to repaint it. And I don't like to paint.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler

  • 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...

  • Replacement Parts for an A-Frame Atwood Trailer Coupler with 2-5/16 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...

    The best replacement for your Shelby A-Frame Coupler 5104 is the A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # CA-5400-B. The Shelby 5104 fits a standard 50-degree a-frame, has a 13,000 lb weight capacity, and uses a 2-5/16" hitch ball. The A-Frame Trailer Coupler also fits a standard 50-degree a-frame and uses a 2-5/16" hitch ball but has a 14,000 lb weight capacity. In order to install this trailer coupler you will need to cut the old one off and weld the new one on. In order to protect your trailer...

  • When Does An A-Frame Coupler Need Replacing?
    An A-Frame trailer coupler like # CA-5400-B is bad and needs replaced if it no longer connects to your trailer hitch ball correctly with its latching mechanism, no longer supports the trailer jack, is not solidly connected to your trailer frame (has cracks), or can't handle the weight capacity it was intended to due to corrosion or impact from an accident.

  • What Is The Angle For The Trailer Tongue For The Etrailer.com 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.

  • Replacement for Weld-On A-Frame Coupler with 14,000 lb Capacity
    The coupler you referenced does not have replacement parts or a latch repair kit so if the thumb latch is busted you will need to replace the unit with the A-Frame Coupler # CA5400. 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.

  • 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.

The Repair Kit for etrailer and Ram A-Frame Couplers part # CA-5100-RK is designed for original trigger latch couplers different than yours.

    Trailer makers like the good folks at Airstream generally don't keep track of the brand and model of coupler they install so you'll want to try to find branding and part number information stamped into the coupler on your trailer. We do have repair/rebuild kits and replacement parts for many brands and models of A-frame coupler that are displayed on the linked page.

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.

  • 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.
