Video Transcript for Titan Multi-Fit Couplers Latch Repair Kit Installation

Today we'll be looking at a latch repair kit for Titan Multi-fit Couplers and Brake Actuators. Part number T4045400. It would also work with Dico and Demco models 60 hydraulic actuators. Today we're using a Titan Actuator, Part number T43397007K for demonstration purposes. Things that our kit comes with, we have our new ball catch here, our new hand crank, two new bolts, various clips, a spring, a nut, and a hog ring to help secure our hand crank to our assembly. Now the reason you want this kit is in case your coupler is damaged and no longer grips onto your ball properly, or your hand crank is difficult to use. This will assist you in fixing those items so you still have a functioning coupler on your trailer without having to replace the entire assembly.

It's an easier installation this way, you don't have to worry about inaudible 00:01:04 your brakes again by replacing the coupler assembly. For safety purposes, when you're doing this repair on your trailer, you want to make sure you chalk the wheels on it so you don't have to worry about your trailer rolling forward or backward. We're doing this form this one off a trailer for demonstration purposes so we can easily flip it over and show you what's going on with it. Makes it a lot easier for us and for you to comprehend how to do this repair. We'll start with taking out our existing hog ring here, use a flat head screwdriver, and we'll pry it off just like that. With the hog ring removed, press down here and we'll remove our hand wheel. Set that aside and we're going to flip it over now.

Remove the bolt, set it to the side. Remove spacer and set it aside, we'll save this one since our replacement kit does not come with one. Take our our spring, set it aside and we'll take out the hand wheel lock and we'll set that aside as well. We'll flip it back over again, now we'll remove this nut and this bolt. Use a five-eight socket and an eleven-sixteenth wrench. This is easier when it is actually on the trailer obviously because it won't be moving around.

We take the nut off and set it aside, flip it over again. Push our bolt on out, take the bolt out. Now we can remove our ball latch, set it aside. We'll take our new ball latch, slide it into place, take our new bolt, line through and through the shock. We'll install the new nut, snug that on down.

When that's snug down, flip it over again. We'll take our new handle lock and drop it into place. Take our spring and seat it into position. Take our plate and drop it in. Take our other plate and drop it in. Drop our other new bolt though, with that pushed through we'll hold onto it. Grab our new handle and we'll spin it on down. Once it starts to catch we can let go of the bolt underneath and we'll crank this up and install our new hog ring. We'll bend it out a little bit so it's more straight. It will go through this hole like that and pull it through. We'll wrap it around so it's secure. That will keep our hand crank from being cranked all the way off. With that done, your coupler is now rebuilt and you're ready to hook up your truck and go down the road again. That completes our look at the latch repair kit for Titan Multi-fit Couplers and Brake Actuators. Part number T4045400.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (69 Customer Reviews)

Replacement latching mechanism works with Dexter Multi-Fit couplers and brake actuators. All necessary hardware included.


I was very happy with the part, but what I found more beneficial was the video to assemble this.
The video was in the description.
Thank for the fast service, quality parts, and very helpful video instructions.


Didn’t get parts described online and in the video. Came with a way to long bolt & nut. Not the correct bolt with hole for the hog ring. All I really needed was the tongue part so went ahead and used but disappointing I paid for a complete replacement & didn’t get it.


I have gotten two of these and they do not come with the correct bolt. The bolt in both kits was fully threaded and that causes latch to catch and not work well


Package showed up when they said it would, and it had all the parts in it. I would recommend this company, and will use them again for trailer parts.


More then I needed...everything I needed & great customer service !!! Thank you...


Shipped immediately with tracking. Priced fairly. Video instructions for installation. What's not to love!



Item as described. Timely
shipping across the states. Well packaged. Works really great now on the tow dolly. Other part was all rusted up. With these replacement parts fixed it up now.

Thank You.

Randy Adversalo

Was very good and fast


great product Rep was very helpful getting right parts and fast delivery came early


Great It saved me. I couldn't find the parts any where. I searched for 2 days on the web then a neighbor told me to check with you. You had the parts with a little looking. Didn't have to weld in a new hitch. Thanks


The hitch replacement parts saved me from having to change my hitch setup. An rv store in Montana was not aware of you when they for us. They should. You are a great source for older trailers like our 1960 Airstream. Got the parts quickly and were exactly as ordered.


Exactly what we needed! Great company! So glad we found you!

1 year later and still happy. Great company! Easy to access website and quick service!
Joan E - 10/25/2021


Product worked as described. I used this item on a dico model 60 hitch coupler. Instead of the c clip I used a cotter pin.


We have been looking for replacement parts for our Dico Trailer. You are the only ones who actually said, yes we have the parts you need. We are very happy!


Works great! Must have to replace the old rusty parts for some smooth operation. Critical for this style ball hitch.


The parts I ordered arrived in 4 days even though I used the cheapest rate. All components were the best quality and the prices were great.
I have ordered from before with the same result and will do so again.


This was a perfect fit, replacement for my damaged ball latch. I could not find it locally.


Worked great for my repair even though I did not have a hydraulic coupler


Still working great after a year of using the latch repair kit. Easy to install just a few minutes to repair.


This product had the parts I needed to fix my broken receiver. A diagram would have been useful to me since I had never worked with this part of my trailer.

    I spoke with my contact at Titan, and he said that your Zinc-Plated Coupler # T2343400183 with the handwheel and the Titan Leverlock Coupler # T4845000 are manufactured differently, so the mechanisms are not interchangeable. You will not be able to use the leverlock mechanism to replace the handwheel assembly on your coupler.
