Video Transcript for Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Bracket - BDA2565C0317 Review

Today we're going to take a quick look at the Bulldog cast head coupler with wedge latch, part number BDA2565c0317. Now Bulldog covers this coupler with a limited five year warranty and it has a gross trailer capacity of 14,000 pounds. Included with the coupler, is the piece of channel that you weld directly to the frame of your trailer. It's got five different positions that you can adjust the head to better suit your truck and trailer combination. Each of these holes is spaced two inches apart center to center. There's a pair of bolts and nylon lock nuts that you'll use to secure the head to the channel.

Now the coupler head is designed to work with 2-5/16 trailer balls. It has a wedge latch system we can take a look at from underneath. There is a wedge here that fits behind the back of the ball. So, to open that wedge, we'll take that latch, pull the trigger release below the handle and lift up on the handle. There's holes through the handle across our top mount here where you can stick a coupler lock that will hold the latch open while you're hooking up or unhooking your trailer.

When closed, you can feed your coupler lock through the second set of holes here and it will help prevent either the trailer from accidentally coming unhooked or also protect against theft while you have your trailer in storage. Now we'll take a quick look underneath and we'll have our 2-5/16 ball so we can show you how it works with a ball. Again we lift up the trigger underneath the handle and open the handle and you can see the wedge move up and out of the way. We'll take our ball, fit it into the socket and the wedge closes on its own around the ball. We have nice smooth movement between the ball and the coupler, which will mean the trailer will track nicely behind the truck, but it's also completely captive and the ball's not going to pop out on its own.

With the mounting holes in place you have eight inches of adjustable height. And that's it for a quick look at the Bulldog cast head coupler with wedge latch, part number BDA2565c0317.

eTrailer was great to work with. Product Shipped way quicker than expected and there was no issues. I will definitely be going back to them in the future.

As always, I have nothing but praise for eTrailer and their products. I love the BullDog hitches and use them on all of my trailers (I have quite a few) and I would definitely recommend them.



- BDA2565C0317
by:

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

Just as I ordered. Friendly service and very timely delivery as always. Will order from eTrailer again. I ordered a second one very similar to this and they verified with me to make sure they weren't charging me double for the same thing. Great customer service

Review from a similar Wedge Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I had to wait a bit for this one, but I wanted this TYPE of coupler so I can lock it with a master lock. This is HEAVY DUTY, really made well and to last more years than I have left on this earth! Easy for me (elder female) to use/easy to latch, unhook. Gives me a great feeling to KNOW this is latched solidly and WON'T jump off the ball...I am so happy with this coupler, and the wait was well worth it!! Photos show the new Bulldog coupler and the replaced white one on the ground.

Review from a similar Wedge Latch Coupler 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.


Comments
After a years use, the ball hitch is fulfilling my needs very well. My concerns proved to be unfounded. A lock with extended shackle works fine. No wear shows on the hitch or the ball. I always feel confident that the hitch will stay secure.My method of painting worked well.

My old hitch is of a thicker metal, kind of surprised with the quality of the new one. I'll probably be ordering the latch kit for the old hitch. Very pleased with the service from your company. Thanks
