Video Transcript for Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Bracket - BDA2005C0317 Review

Today were going to take a quick look at the Bulldog cast head coupler with wedge latch and an adjustable channel part #: BDA2005C0317. Now Bulldog covers this coupler assembly with a limited five year warranty and it has a gross trailer weight capacity of 8,000lbs. The coupler head bolts to a piece of channel thats included with the coupler. This channel can be welded directly to the frame of your trailer. The head of the coupler can be adjusted up and down along this channel at five different positions. Each of the bolt holes along the side of the channel measure 2 inches apart center to center.

There are two bolts with nylon lock nuts, those youll use to secure the head to the channel. The coupler's designed to work with 2 inch trailer balls and now were going to show you the latch system. The handle has a trigger underneath and youll pull up on the trigger in order to release the handle so you can lift it up. The system is spring loaded, so when you release the handle it locks back into place. Theres a hole here for using a coupler lock.

The coupler lock will make sure that the handle doesnt come open while youre pulling the trailer down the road and it will also help protect your trailer against theft while you store it. Now when the handles opened theres a hole on the handle that lines up with our mount here. You can insert your coupler lock here and it will hold the handle opened while youre either hooking or unhooking your trailer. Well take a look underneath at how the system works with the ball. In the ball socket area theres a wedge that sits on the back of the ball.

When you lift the handle the wedge moves up and back out of the way to create enough space to fit a ball in. We have a 2 inch trailer ball with us so well show you how it works with the ball. Fit the ball into the socket and release the handle. The handle latches down, the wedge comes forward and fits against the back of the ball. Now our ball is completely captive, it wont come out, but allows nice move travel to make sure the trailer tracks nicely behind the tow vehicle.

Well open our latch, remove the ball and were ready to go. And thats it for our quick look at the Bulldog cast head coupler with wedge latch part #: BDA2005C0317.

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

Review from a similar 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

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler

  • Needing a Straight Trailer Coupler That Will Fit a 4 inch Channel
    I have a solution that might work for your problem. The Bulldog Cast Head Coupler for 2 Inch Ball, # BDA2005C0317, is an adjustable coupler that can be welded to the end of the trailer tongue. This is the only coupler that may work for your application. We carry many straight tongue couplers that will work with either a 1-7/8 or 2 inch ball, but we do not have a trailer coupler that can be bolted or welded on a 4 inch channel. The largest application that our straight couplers can fit...

  • Width of Channel Included with Bulldog Cast Head # BDA2005C0317 Adjustable Trailer Coupler
    The outside width of the channel used with the Bulldog Cast Head # BDA2005C0317 Adjustable Coupler is 3.620 inches, which is slightly under 3-5/8 inches.

  • Hitch on 23 Foot Motor Home Drags When Pulling Wells Cargo Trailer
    Since there is such a big gap from the rear axle to the end of the motor home there will be an increased chance the hitch will drag. You could use the Bulldog Cast Head Coupler, part # BDA2005C0317, but you would need to have it welded onto the A-frame of your Wells Cargo Trailer by a trailer professional or certified welder. This would then allow you to use a ball mount with less of a drop. As you may know, you will still want to make sure the trailer is being pulled as level as possible...

  • Adjustable Bracket And Coupler Recommendation For 7000 Lb Trailer
    We do carry some replacement parts for couplers, however we do not carry replacement parts that would work for the coupler you have provided pictures of. We do have some options for you to consider. For an adjustable channel coupler, I recommend the Bulldog Cast Head Coupler, part # BDA256C0317. This coupler has fits a 2-5/16 inch ball. The channel I would recommend for this coupler is the Bulldog 5-Position Adjustable Channel Bracket for Cast Head Couplers, part # BDAC5000300. This...
