Coupler repair kit for 2" posi-lock coupler latch for Curt straight tongue couplers.


This item made connecting a whole lot smoother. Once you get the tension set correctly on spring, it works great. Thanks E-Trailer


It seems to be heavy duty haven't pulled the trailer with it yet.


I had a coupler with a bent latch, I thought I would have to replace the entire unit, then I found the repair page for couplers, I compared the parts and bought this one, it is a exact match to my coupler that is not branded. It took 3 minutes to install and adjust. When adjusting it I used a two in ball and tightened the nut on the repair part so it was snug with the ball in the coupler.


I needed to replace a 1985 (34 year old) Fulton Fas-Loc coupler and once again, etrailer had me covered. Easy order, fast ship and works as advertised! Great job!


I had been to FIVE different stores looking for what I needed..None had a "straight tongue" or wanted me to replace the whole system. Found you online; seemed way too easy to find and order i.e.too good to be true. Part arrived today..2 days earlier than stated. Installed right away and was exactly what I needed for my 40 year old trailer.


just what I needed to fix my trailer


It replaced what we had, but the old one was heavier duty with a stiffer upper spring. We had to tack weld the clamp shoe to keep it from shifting in the slot and loosening on the ball.


After searching around for a repair kit I found this one and nobody even comes close to beating the price of E-trailer.


Locking mechanism where hook latches could be designed better. Snapper pins received were too large in diameter to slide into coupler handle hole. Service has always been excellent.

This replacement latch for curt couplers will take up to a 1/4 inch diameter pin such as part # K-8P.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/14/2019


My utility trailer had a hitch handle that someone left in the up position and like always i got stepped on and bent over a week before my camping trip. The local auto parts stores didnt have anything. I found a complete replacement kit to basically rebuild the hitch. Price was great and fast enough for me to get done before my trip. Its been amost a year and we have put a few thousand miles on the trailer since and everything is still working great. (And my friends borrow it a lot and there rough on stuff) i would buy from etrailer again.


Product is exactly what I was looking for. E trailer shipping response was exceptional.


Perfect fit and repair of my trailer due to regular use and wear.


This trailer 2 inch hitch Curt coupler repair kit was very easy to install , and worked great the shipping was fast and it was priced right E trailer is a great place to shop why go any where else. Joe L.


Product was exactly as shown/written. Customer service terrific. Watched demo(s) of installation and read reviews. Definitely want to watch a demo if you have never attempted before. Spring is stiff and not much room to wiggle fingers. Crawled under to put together but no way. Stood above ball hitch and compressed spring just a bit and put bolt head assembly slightly through spring enough to slip lower female end over ball hitch rod and bingo it was in. Took less then 5 minutes from beginning to end even with my trying on my back in the rocks. Definitely would buy from here again.


This product can help replace one that is worn out and difficult to latch anymore. The only problem we found was on the packaging, it said to follow instructions, yet there were no instructions. We figured it out though, as the old spring was severely past it's prime and through some old time country know how, we were able to get things to work. We were able to take our boat to the lake and bring it home again without problems after fixing it.

still working... no complaints

The item shiped and arrived in two days. It looks great and will solve my problem.
My coupler lock broke so I could not use my utility trailer. This will give me the service of my trailer again. Thanks, the product is very sturdy and appears very durable.

Eactly what I needed. Has worked very well. Good quality and excellent service.
William R - 09/29/2020


Accidently backed over trailer coupling and it broke. This part solved the problem. Shipping was fast and price was great.

This product is still working great after a year since installed. Expecting many more years of use.
James E - 07/09/2017


There was no disappointment as to the quality of this item. It was heavy duty - in fact, it was heavier duty than the one it replaced. This installed fast and easy.
The additional locking washer underneath was a nice touch as now I can adjust the clamp pressure of the underjaw with a simple twist of the lever-lock on top.
The only drawback is that, as others have also mentioned, it does not come with any instructions. Not that its so hard to figure out but a simple diagram printed on the back of the cardboard insert would have made this a no-brainer to install. Without it I had to do a little fiddling with the parts and a little head-scratching. I know, I know - but in the 10 degree weather it made it longer than it had to be.
I did not use the underjaw as the old one seemed to be a better fit with the underjaw pivot pin - but I saved it just in case.
This cost a third less than other placed I shopped and a great buy all in all.
(But put a dang diagram though!)


The bolt part of the Lowes (Carry-On-Trailer made) utility trailer 1 7/8 coupler broke. I bought this 2" kit figuring it would have a thicker better bolt in the setup but everything in the kit was the exact same parts EXCEPT the shoe which I knew when ordered. The kit worked Flawlessly with the use of the OEM shoe.


Installed in minutes, easy to adjust, still working great after 1 year, even though trailer is stored uncovered outside.

Good as new
Timothy D - 02/06/2018


Perfect for the replacement I need on my trailer.

Just OK. I find it is not a good fit on this pop up trailer we have. Very tight fit so things have to be lined up perfectly otherwise the ball catches on the piece that rests under the ball and I have to realign the pieces and start over. The price was not great and found another similar product looked the same for about half the price too.
Wes - 02/26/2022


I was very pleased to find a quick easy repair part for my small utility trailer hitch. Part fit perfectly, was relatively easy to replace, and the limited instructions were more than adequate.


After having my 30+year old boat trailer "jump" the ball, I decided I might need to check the wear and tear on the hitch... Worn parts were obvious. Found this website and ordered this repair kit .... Fit perfect and now ready for more years of service.


I could not be happier. The install was a snap. Adjusting took minutes. The fit on my utility trailer was perfect. This was even better quality than the original, and given that my trailer was built circa 1980, that says a lot, as we were used to good products back then. Would gladly purchase again.

Still happy, still working very well. Will likely purchase from here again when I re-do the one on my popup camper.

  • Where on Trailer to Find VIN Information
    If it's not located on the outside of the frame members that make up the trailer tongue, it might be on the inside of the frame members, so you might want to check there first. Then, examine the rest of the frame. I've also seen the information on the front of the trailer. If the trailer has a toolbox, propane bottles or other obstructions on the tongue, they might be covering the VIN plate.

  • 2-Inch Surge Brake Coupler Repair Kit for Escort Trailer
    My research on Escort trailers revealed a wide range of models produced at many different U.S. manufacturing sites, but I could find no mention of the brands of couplers supplied as original equipment. We do offer coupler repair kits for many brands of couplers, including Shelby, Atwood, Husky, Curt and Dutton-Lainson. For example, part # C25194 is a Latch Repair Kit for 2-Inch Curt couplers. The best way to identify the correct kit is to check the coupler for a sticker (or stamping)...

  • How to Get VIN For Homemade Utility Trailer
    That's something you'll need to discuss with your State Police or DMV. The exact procedure varies widely from state to state. Here in Missouri, you can take a trailer to the local State Highway Patrol Office, where they'll assign a VIN to the trailer if you have supporting documents and if they find it to be roadworthy.

  • How to Get VIN Assigned on 1975 Boat Trailer
    A trailer VIN is usually 17 digits long and includes a lot of information, including the maker, the number of axles, weight rating, etc. The first three characters identify the manufacturer. If your vintage boat trailer's VIN is no longer visible on the original sticker you may be able to submit photos of it to the manufacturer. If by chance these first three characters are still visible that might be enough to at least determine the company that made the trailer, and whether they are still...

  • Installation of Coupler Repair Kit # CP02-050
    The repair kit installs as follows: The latch assembly bolt is slid through the coupler. Slip the large spring over the bolt. The under jaw comes next, followed by the square plate, the small spring washer and the lock nut. Take a look at the provided diagram, which shows the order of assembly.

  • Availability of Replacement Coupler Hardware for 1999 Ram-Lin Trailer
    The rebuild kit or replacement coupler parts will depend on who manufactured the coupler on your trailer. If you can closely examine the coupler and find any manufacturer information or model or part numbers, I might be able to track down replacement parts for you. If you cannot see any information on the coupler, you can contact the trailer manufacturer, Ram-Lin out of Orlando Fl. Their phone number is 407-851-1144. If you can provide them with the VIN of your trailer, hopefully they...

  • How Does Curt Coupler Repair Kit # C25194 Assemble
    It certainly does. I've provided a diagram for a different coupler repair kit that will show you exactly how the latch assembles and what goes where. The threaded bolt from the handle inserts into the coupler. From underneath, slide on the spring, the jaw and the square plate, followed by the tension spring and the lock nut.

  • Coupler Repair Kit Availability for a Trailer
    We have several different coupler repair kits that could work for you, but without knowing the brand, size, or style of your coupler it is hard to say if the # C25194 would be the correct one for you. What I would recommend you do is check out the link I attached (after determining what brand coupler you have), click the brand of coupler you have and you will see all of the compatible coupler repair kits.

  • Where to Find Trailer Model, VIN Number and Weight Capacity Information
    Thank you for the photo of your Holland and England brand trailer. Usually the trailer manufacturer's name, model number, weight capacity and vehicle identification number (VIN) will be on the same placard or plate. This plate is often mounted on a frame rail or other accessible point near the trailer's tongue. Other times it may be placed near or on one of the axles. There is no absolute rule as to where this information will be located so you'll need to inspect the trailer frame starting...

  • Can Trailer VIN be Found for Trailer with Faded Sticker
    What kind of info are you trying to find out? The VIN for your trailer should be on the bill of sale so if you know where that is you can use that. Otherwise your best bet to get specific info on your boat trailer would be to contact the manufacturer if you know who that is. If you are looking for replacement parts for your trailer just let me know and I can see if we have anything that will be compatible.

  • Locating VIN on 1996 Gulf Stream Seahawk 5th Wheel Trailer
    The VIN for your Gulf Stream Seahawk 5th Wheel Trailer could be located in a number of possible areas, but the most common would be up towards the coupler on the outside (or possibly inside) of the frame. It's typically on the same sticker/plate that lists the trailer's general specs like weight capacity, axle rating, etc. If you don't see anything here your best route is just to inspect the frame front to back on the trailer, outside and inside. Also look under the trailer to see if...

  • Where to Locate VIN on Trailer
    The 'Shelby 5135' you refer to is the part number of the coupler itself, it's not an identifier of the trailer manufacturer or the trailer's model number. If this is just a typical A-frame cargo trailer, there will usually be an ID plate somewhere on the trailer tongue, listing the manufacturer, model number and GVWR of the trailer, among other information. The VIN should be on that plate. If it's not, sometimes its on a sticker or actually stamped into the metal, located somewhere on the...

  • Where to Find VIN/Serial Number on Boat Trailer
    The serial number and VIN are typically printed on a label or plate placed somewhere on the trailer's pole tongue, although it could possibly found elsewhere on the trailer frame, possibly on the inside edge of the frame so it's more protected. Many times the sticker will also include the axle rating, GVWR and other important information.

  • What to do if Trailer Does Not Have VIN
    Oftentimes the VIN is located on the trailer tongue. If you cannot find it there it may be stamped on your trailer's frame somewhere and you will need to check under the trailer around the axle which of course may be a bit of a pain but sometimes the VIN is there. Otherwise you will need to contact your local state police or highway patrol who can assign your trailer a VIN.

  • Coupler Repair Kit For Reese Towpower Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler
    The Coupler Repair Kit for 2" Curt Couplers # C25194 has not been tested with the Reese Tow Power 74280 coupler but it should work well. Mechanically these style couplers are not very different, so the parts should work without issue. This is our most popular repair kit and you can see from the review page it works very well for most applications. I've linked the page to all our straight tongue coupler repair kits to show the similarity.

  • What is the Axle Capacity of a Highlander Boat Trailer
    Shoreliner made the Highlander Boat Trailers and they went out of business several years ago so the VIN cannot be used to determine the axle capacity. However, if the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer is only 2,120 lbs then it would most likely not have a 3,500 lb axle but rather a 2,000 lb axle or smaller. If it is a round axle then you can measure the diameter and then compare it to the list below: - 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2" - 1-3/4" Diameter - 3,500-lb Axles:...

  • Location of Tongue and Axle on Trailer
    The trailer tongue is the portion of the trailer that extends out from the main body up to the coupler (which is what hooks up to the hitch ball on the tow vehicle). The axle is the tube that runs across the trailer that has the hub, wheel, and tire attached at each end. I have attached a couple images to assist. Please just let me know if you have any more questions!

  • Locating the VIN Number on a Forest River Cherokee CKT21BH Travel Trailer
    The VIN on your Forest River Cherokee CKT31BH should be printed into a sticker on the frame just behind the coupler. This is normally found on the driver's side of the travel trailer. The VIN is normally located in a couple of places, so I also recommend checking the inside of your cabinets as that is also a common location. If you cannot find it but happen to find the Serial number, then the manufacturer can help track it down.

    The VIN on small utility trailers like what you have is usually located on the frame up towards the tongue or even on the tongue itself. If it's not too old there might still be a sticker around this spot too that would display this number along with additional info like the axle capacity or tire size. If you cannot locate a VIN here then your best bet is to try and inspect the frame along the length of the trailer, both on the inside and outside, for any 17 digit number stamped into...
