Video Transcript for Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Bracket - BDA2003C0317 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Bulldog casshead couple, with the included travel bracket and hardware. The heavy duty coupler is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo, construction trailers. The coupler is made from a steal construction with a gray prime finish for easy painting, and the the bracket is raw steal which does make it easier to weld onto the trailer. The coupler is going to feature a wedge style latch. Very secure and very easy to use. You can see that wedge here on the underside. Then you got the trigger mechanism right here, so you lift up on that, open it up and then that opens up the coupler to receive the inaudible 00:00:37. That will not remain in the open position, so you will need to use a coupler pen and clip.

Go through there, it can be placed in there to hold in the open position and the closed position. Instead of doing a pen and clip since it doesn't come with one, I would recommend doing a coupler pen and lock. That's also going to add security to the coupler, making sure that somebody doesn't hitch up to your unattended trailer. It's also going to add better security once it is hooked up to your vehicle, making sure that the latch doesn't come open or that the coupler doesn't come off of the ball. Those are available. They are sold separately. They're available here at etrailer.com.

The pen hole for a pen is going to be 5/16th of an edge and a standard usable pen length needed would be at least 1 inch. The adjustable coupler mounts to the weld on channel bracket with the included hardware. It's going to come with the bolts and the nylon lock nuts. That is adjustable. The bracket has a four hole design and again the bracket welds on to your trailer. The four hold design is going to offer three different positions. From the center of this hole to the bottom of this hole is going to measure 6 inches and then these hole are all separated on a two inch center, so that is going to be the incremental height adjustment.

We take a measurement of the bracket itself, the overall length. It's going to measure about seven and three quarters of an inch. There's a lot of width in that bracket. Edge to edge is about three and nine sixteenths of an inch wide. The internal width of the bracket, inside edge to inside edge is about three inches.

The coupler is designed for a two inch hitch ball. The overall length from very back of the bracket to the front of the coupler is about nine inches and the unit's going to have a capacity of eight thousand pounds. That's going to do it for today's look at the Bulldog casshead coupler with the included channel bracket and hardware.

Review from a similar Bulldog Wedge Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


This is a substantial ball hitch. I haven't installed it yet since I intend to paint it. The gray paint on it seems to be only a primer and it isn't adhering well to the metal. So I wire-wheeled the paint off. That was a quick job--the gray came off easily. Some lacquer thinner will clean the metal and then the metal primer will adhere well. Then I'll paint it to match the CornPro trailer. This hitch can be locked with a regular lock, or so it appears. I haven't tried it yet to be sure. The ball socket is simply the rough casting, like all the rest of the hitch, so I hope it won't roughen up the ball. Grade 5 bolts with nylon insert nuts were included. The trailer had grade 8 bolts. So I will keep an eye on the wear. I would rather replace worn bolts every few years than have grade 8 bolts wear the softer bolt holes. On a 6,000 GTW trailer, I don't think grade 5 bolts will be sheared off. 663621

Should be perfect for what i'm doing. However, don't forget to buy a pin for the latch because it doesn't come with one. Also, the channel is 11.75 long if that helps 448229
