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


not only it didn't fit as advertised but the return freight was almost the cost of the part. now i have a useless paper weight.


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!


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


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


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


Haven’t installed yet


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.

Rob S.


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


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.

Shannon D.


still working... no complaints


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.


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.


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.

William D.


Eactly what I needed. Has worked very well. Good quality and excellent service.


First time ordering from etrailer and I am very pleased. The price was great, I got the exact part I ordered and needed which was easy to choose because of the product description and great pictures of the product. The part even showed up a day early, with an email telling me the product was delivered.



Product is still working and holding up to the abuse of teenage boys. Thank you


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.


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

Timothy D.


Good as new


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.


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.


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.


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.


Totally saved me. When I accidentally broke this part on my trailer I thought that I pretty well had ruined the trailer. Finding this part on here and for such a reasonable price and fast shipping was outstanding. It was an easy install and has served me well. Frankly it works much better than the original hardware. So I consider it an accidental happy upgrade. Thanks etrailer!


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.


Fast service
Great price
in 5 minutes


When I broke this part on my trailer I thought I would have to buy a new hitch. Found the replacement part at etrailer and purchased it. The part arrived in short order and I installed on my trailer. It worked great. Great service, recommend to all.

  • Where to Find VIN if it is Hard to Read on Trailer
    I wasn't really able to read very much from the picture because of the texture that the sticker is on but I am attaching a photo of what the digits on a VIN generally mean. If you can't find the VIN on the trailer itself (due to wear) it should be on your title.

  • 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.

  • Is There a Coupler Repair Kit Available for a Valley 5111 Coupler
    Since Valley went out of business the replacement parts are no longer being made. From the research that I have done it looks like the Coupler Repair Kit for 2" Curt Couplers # C25194 would be a good fit, but I cannot say for certain since I have no way to test it out. What I recommend doing is replacing your coupler completely. Replacement parts for Valley equipment are becoming harder to come by since they do not make them anymore so it would benefit you to get a coupler that is currently...

  • Suggestions for VIN Plate Sticker on New Utility Trailer
    Up near the coupler on the frame rail is probably the best location, but I would check with your local DOT or DMV to verify that.

  • 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.

  • Finding a VIN on Trailer
    We do not have any type of database from manufacturers with the locations of VINs but 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.

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Installation Of Curt Coupler Repair Kit # C25194
    The Coupler Repair Kit # C25194 is designed for Curt 2 inch couplers. If you have it installed properly it should work with a 2 inch ball with no problem. You may want to check the hitch ball to make sure it is 2 inches. check out the attached drawing that shows how the assembly is done and make sure you have all of the parts in the same manner. The front of the underjaw slips under the hitch ball and rests against the shank of the hitch ball. As you press the top latch down the underjaw...

  • Where to Normally Locate VIN on Trailer
    Often you can find a trailer's VIN on the front of the frame, usually on a plate of some sort. If not there the other place you want to look is near the trailer's axle. If for one reason or another you cannot find it, you can contact your local DMV and they can guide you in getting a new VIN assigned to your trailer.

  • Length of Trailer Based Off of VIN
    If you check out the attached photo you can see that the digits in the 6 and 7 spots indicate the length of the trailer. Your VIN has 09 in those positions so I would have to say that the trailer is 9' long. Unfortunately there is no way for me to tell you what model your trailer is. If you call the trailer manufacturer they should be able to help you out with that.

  • VIN Location on 1988 Midwest Industry Utility Trailer
    A trailer's VIN is typically located toward the front of the trailer frame on an inside-facing surface. Check near the coupler inside the A-frame. If you cannot find the number there, then your best bet is to simply inspect the frame all along the trailer, as it can really be anywhere. It may even be stamped onto one of the axles or printed on a sticker. If you are unable to locate the VIN, you can also check with your local state police or highway patrol as they may be able to assign...

  • 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.

  • How to Find VIN on Fulton Trailer
    You should be able to locate the VIN of your Fulton trailer near the tongue or coupler. This is typically located in a place where it is least likely to be damaged like on the inside of the frame. If you still can't locate it you should find it on the bill of sale or you can contact the manufacturer with your serial number (found on a sticker or plate near the tongue) and they can let you know what it is. If for some reason they can't tell you the VIN you can contact your local state police...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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!
