Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler Only - BD028657

Today we're talking a look at a Bulldog collar lock adjustable trailer mount coupler. This is a heavy duty coupler that's ideal for utility, livestock, cargo and construction trailers. It features a collar lock design, which offers automatic, continuously tight fit for absolute security. It's a hinged ball socket, so once this sleeve is pulled back this hinge will kick out. It's on a spring. That makes hooking up pretty simple.

We're looking at a high strength steel. It's very strong, very durable. It has the painted finish on it, so that's going to help resist rust and corrosion. Gray in color. One of the other advantages of this type of setup is it really offers visual indication of proper closure, so that provides additional peace of mind that the socket is fully closed around the ball, and that everything is hooked up correctly.Here on the backside you can see that it has an adjustable channel mount design, which lets you change the coupler's height depending on the application.

Hardware included. It's a pin style fastener, so to open up the ball socket we just take the clip off the pin, and we can pull that pin out of that slot. It's held on there with a chain, so we don't have to worry about misplacing that, or losing it. And then you take this socket, or this collar right here, and you just pull that back. As you do, this piece kicks out, and that is what actually opens up the ball socket area to be dropped over a hitch ball.

Once it's engaged on the hitch ball you pull this back a little bit, push in the hinge portion, and allow the collar to come back over, and then you can reinsert your pin and clip.This is designed to fit on a 2 5/16" hitch ball. Capacity, it's engraved right here on the head, 15,000 lbs. We'll take a measurement of this area back here real quick, and outside edge to outside edge measures around 2 7/8 to 2 15/16", so that let's us know that this is designed for a 3" wide channel bracket. Our mount holes are separated apart from one another on center by 2".That's going to do it for today's look at the Bulldog collar lock adjustable channel mount coupler.

Bulldog Collar-Lok Adjustable Channel Mount Coupler - 15K - BD028657

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (255 Customer Reviews)

I changed out the conventional ball hitch on a dump trailer to a bulldog style hitch. There were issues ensuring the original hitch was on the ball correctly. The Bulldog hitch will eliminate that potential problem. Installation was easy. Took about 10 minutes to get the old hitch off and the new one on. The only improvement that I would suggest is to have the lever to retract the collar as the lighter Bulldog hitches do. This one simply has a sliding collar that must be forced back by hand. I always use my foot on the hitches with the lever. But this is a Bulldog issue and not an etrailer issue. etrailer service was outstanding. 469915

Bull dog is great product. However, a dump trailer I have ... the hitch collar is very hard to pull back and must be done way back to release. I finally welded handles on it to assist in pulling collar back.

The collar is way to hard to slide back and lock open. Since this item is a 15000 lb rated tongue weight coupler the base that has the 4 bolt holes should be beefed up some instead of a hollow core. 445303

The bulldog Collar Lok is excellent for our rental concrete trailers, as it assures the attendant that is hooking up the trailer the hitch is locked in place. This product is also study and handles the demanding conditions of our job-sites. 319235

Received the Bulldog coupler faster than What I Expected. Product is as described, with the exception of the small chain that holds the locking pin, it is about 2" too short, I had to remove it from the under latch to get the pin out. Now I can install it on my equipment trailer to haul a small excavator, without all the hassle of the old coupler that would not unlatch without a fight. THANK YOU! 228201

This is going to be a great replacement hitch for my utility trailer. I pull a 14,000 pound tractor and attachments on this trailer. The original Bulldog hitch that I am replacing, that came on the trailer, was easily damaged. This hitch solves this problem. Thanks 111140

This is exactly what I was looking for. This is a very good heavy coupler. It is replacing a 5K surge brake toledo bulldog coupler on a trailer I have beefed up with 600# of steel to the 10K level. To save $$$ and maintenance issues I am going to electric brakes after I decide on current axles or not. Very speedy shipping: I did not expect to see it untill 16 July 12. I have ordered from you several times and you have always exceeded my service expectations and your prices are very competitive. 47860

Excellent Coupler with low price. I replaced the older Bulldog hitch with this one. The channels made it easy to weld it onto 3" channel iron. I prefer the low profile style, instead of the high profile model. I also purchased a lock from etrailer.com that goes through the hitch, replacing the normal clip that it comes with ( pn 28012). They also shipped me a 2" receiver hitch lock ( pn 7683) for my truck, and they keyed the two locks to the same key. 191173

The couplers (3) are of excellent quality. Ordering was very simple by telephone. All questions were answered. Shipping was immediate and the product arrived in an unmolested box which surprised me due to the weight. I expected the box to be dented and the corners smashed. Tracking of shipments was important to me. Couplers will be installed on a rather unique vehicle. Each of the three cars of this miniture train will receive the new couplers. 109607

Replacement for worn out receiver on old trailer. Wish Bulldog were made in the USA, not Mexico. But, the others are made in China, which is even worse. 92372


Comments

No problems. Remember to keep a hand on the lever when squeezing shut and let the slide close gradually so you dont pinch your other hand. I keep mine lubed with bicycle chain lube with Teflon. Also, i always grease the ball. Yes, that is messy but the metal-to-metal squealing is prevented and your coupler will last forever.

It take a bit of getting used to, but you can certainly tell this is a best in class hitch. I pulled my 2006 crew cab longbed 7500 lbs. truck across the country on my PJ car hauler... Once at new home I used trailer\hitch to haul 4klbs. - 5klbs. of fence material - no worries... 659720

We ordered this on 5/27 and installed it on a burial vault trailer. Two weeks later, the pin holding the collar together fell out while in transit. 659505


Comments

Was the snapper pin secured correctly? The only way I could see this happening is if the bail wasnt secured over the snapper pin and it wasnt closed.

I recently sold a dump trailer that had a Bulldog 2 inch hitch on it. The new dump trailer I purchased is smaller but has a Chinese 2 5/16" hitch for some reason. I really like the Bulldog style and since everything else I have is 2", I purchased this to replace the one that came on it. As a self employed mechanic I have recommended my customer's use etrailer for supplies I use for them. They and I have always had a pleasant experience. Thank you! 656327

After a couple of hiccups on shipping due to back orders and then the weather the Bulldog coupler arrived and was good as I had expected. I think this is the 5th Bulldog coupler that I’ve ordered from e-trailer. 628300

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Hitch clamp is great quality material but sometimes hard to open. This is because the sleeve does not have support lever to pull back. I have a similar hitch that has a lever which pulls the sleeve when it needs to be opened. That makes it much easier. 617422

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I looked everywhere for a round coupler for my Tube-Neck trailer, then I found etrailer! I used it to replace the original, which was a thin steel coupler, that had been "pounded-out" until it was round!? This coupler is 20 times stronger. I had it welded on at the local welding shop. I took it on a 800 mile Hunting trip to southern Arizona last November. Not once was I the least bit concerned about the trailer, knowing that this strong coupler was now keeping everything connected. I gave it 4-stars, because the wire connector between the locking lever and the sliding collar, can easily be bent, and then can come free from the locking lever. Instead, it should be a solid steel piece, that is more firmly attached. 615520
