Just what we needed to repair a Titan c oupler.


Delivered one day ahead of time. Great. I was down at work so the extra day helped a lot getting my work done on time.
Thanks Much


Perfect fit! It took about 2 min to install. I diddnt have the tool to press the pin so I drilled a small hole and put in a cotter pin.
Back on the road!


Came in a timely manner.


Perfect fit.


This replacement part worked well and exactly as expected.

It saved me having to get the entire coupling unit.

Thanks to Crystal, we were able to make sure the correct part was ordered. I highly recommend etrailer and the folks who work there.

The part is working out really well. Absolutely no complaints. It will work for many years to come.

Exact fit, 15 minutes and I was back in business.


Ordered a trailer coupler repair kit for the Titan coupler. The kit is identical to the original, but zinc plated, which is a good thing because the original corroded away.


Perfect replacement for the latch on my 1995 Boat trailer. Took maybe 15 minutes to install, you do need a second person due to the spring to help pull up for the pin.


All of the parts arrived on time, fit perfectly and have been working very well.


Good price,great service,came on time!

I found the item my customer needed online at, caled and talked to a friendly person, got thepart I need at a fair price, shipped rightaway and recieved in a timely maner.


Exact same product & quality as original it replaces. Whats not to like about that? eTrailer description, shipping & follow-up is excellent.....


I needed a repair kit that looks like this but for a 2" ball. I could not find one anywhere. I was able to use the upper part of this new kit with the lower part from my old latch to make a good usable latch.


Form, fit, and function were spot on!


Exact replacement of older style ball hitch lever style.
Fast delivery.
No problems.


Excellent product. Fit with no issues whatsoever. Awesome customer service.
Would recommend to anyone with a trailer in need of parts.
Thank you!!


Excellent quality, fast service and shipping. Would recommend site to anyone looking for parts and great service


Great repair part. Installed in minutes and has been working flawlessly for over a year now. Great customer service!! Thanks


Great fit, OEM parts fit good saved cutting hitch couple r off and welding on a new one at 1/4 the cost


Direct replacement. Fit exactly correct. Took about 10 minutes to install.


Product was good but paid for 2 day shipping and it took longer than that to arrive. Definitely won't be ordering anything else from here.

Michael, I am sorry to hear about any inconvenience with your order and have forwarded your comment regarding the delivery timeframe to customer service for direct follow-up with you.
