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.

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
