Today we're going to take a look at the A-frame, thumb latch trailer coupler, with an oily finish for the two and five sixteenths hitch ball. This A frame coupler will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, provides the connection point right here for the hitch ball. It is a thumb latch design, which makes it very easy to clamp around the ball. Basically to open it up you just pull the latch up, slide it back towards the trailer, and it'll open the ball socket ready for the hitch ball. Then to close it you slide the latch forward and it'll close around the ball. I did happen to pull a two and five sixteenths diameter ball, just to show you how this connects. Again, as we mentioned, to open it just lift up and slide it back, that'll open up the ball socket, goes over the hitch ball.

You just push it forward, you can see that it'll lock right into place. To remove it same way, just release it like that. Now this is made of a sturdy steel construction, this one does have an oily finish to provide corrosion resistance, as you can look at my hand, you can see how the finish is very oily. It is an A frame design, as you can see right here, it mounts to a fifty degree trailer tong. It is a weld-on installation.

This SAEJ684 certified, if you notice on the very back here, the round hole with the three holes, this is a built in jack attachment point. Allows for quick, easy mounting of a round utility jack. The diameter of the hole that the jack goes through, put a measurement on that, it's going to be right at two and a quarter inches. If you notice it does have three threaded holes for installation of the jack. It does require three, three eights by sixteen bolts for installing the jack. The ball size again that it fits on is a two and five sixteenths diameter.

Total weight capacity is fourteen thousand pounds, tongue weight capacity is twenty-one hundred pounds. There is a pinhole right here, that if you do want extra security to lock it, you get a coupler lock, it does have a five sixteenths diameter pinhole diameter. Give you a few overall dimensions, we're going to measure the width, from this edge to this edge. If I put a tape measure on it, it's going to be right at ten and seven eighths inches wide, and in the overall length, from this end to this very end right here. If you can see, is going to be right at twelve and seven eights inches long. That should do it for the review on the A frame, thumb latched trailer coupler with the oily finish, for a two and five sixteenths hitch ball..

Heavy-duty A-frame coupler features sturdy steel construction, an oily finish and an easy-to-use latch for secure hookup.


This trailer coupler worked fine for me. I'd recommend it and will probably get another one in the future.


Have used this product before with Etrailers. Price can't be beat. Will purchase with Etrailers in the neat future.


Tongue is as advertised and size seems to match the trailer perfectly. Haven't had a chance to have it welded yet but don't anticipate any problems. It definitely has an oily finish. Wear gloves when handling if you don't want it all over your fingers.

After a year the trailer coupler is working perfectly. I recently bought another trailer that Im considering changing the coupler on and buying another one.

New hitch arrived on time and at a great price. E Trailer helped keep down time to a minimum

Still works and looks like new

We just got this installed on our 12,000lb (GVWR) car hauler, and it seems quite adequate for the job.

Everything seems to work just fine. We have used this 12,000 lb GVWR trailer to haul cars, trucks, and other sorts of cargo over the past year, and the frame coupler has been as strong as it needed to be. We are very satisfied with this product

I had a one time need to put a long tongue on trailer to enable me to haul a 60' sail boat hull to the shipyard.

I welded the hitch to a 16' 4" x 5" box beam along with 2" x 2" angles at the angles provided in the Hitch shape. The other ends to the trailer, loaded the boat, and Viola! It all went with only one hitch, the one I bought.

Great help!


Product is perfect for this 74 X 120 stucco crew trailer w/7k axle and G rated tires. Very good price and quality. I'll buy again as needed.

After one year, still great service.

The price's at etrailer are great. The trailer Coupler I purchased looks to be better quality than what my trailer was built with. The folks at etrailer are great to do business with, great service,great shipping, as a matter of fact...they even put a rush on my shipping without charging extra for it.....You know I will be back!


Works! is overkill for the trailer it was installed on but wanted a one ball setup so I could stop changing the ball every time I switched trailers


This product was shipped on day of order and was same quality as heavy duty one it replaced. Price was 3x's less than anywhere else.


The parts I needed were difficult to impossible to find here in the northeast.
You website made it real easy to find what I needed to restore my flatbed trailer.


The 2 5/16 coupler is very high quality and I would recommend this product to everyone.


Product was great quality. It fit the trailer tongue perfectly. Welded it on and bolted for safety.


Welded on travel trailer, and works great. Also good price and prompt shipping.


Excellent!! Great people to work with. Good communication,fast shipping. easy tracking device. Product was just as they explained.
