eZ-Latch Coupler

This coupler features a simple-to-use latching mechanism known as the eZ-Latch. With this mechanism, hooking up is as easy as dropping the coupler over your trailer hitch ball. The latch does not need to be tugged or manually activated to allow the ball into the coupler socket, nor does it have to be secured in place. Just make sure that the coupler is properly lined up with the ball when you lower it, and the rest is automatic.

Video Transcript for Demco Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler Only - DM12688-95 Review

Audio: Today, we'll be reviewing part# DM12688-95. This is the Demco trailer coupler. It is adjustable with the channel mount, and it has an easy latch design. The ball coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, provided a great connection point for your hitch ball. This is designed with a 2-inch hitch ball size. It's going to have the adjustable channel mounts.

It's going to let you change the coupler's height depending on your application. The channel bracket and the mounting hardware are all sold separately. This is made from heavy-duty steel construction with a nice zinc plating. It's going to offer excellent corrosion resistance. Right here, it also has a little slot for a coupler lock, and that's going to be sold separately as well. We take a measurement of the channel width. Inside to inside is going to give us a measurement of about 2". Outside to outside is going to measure 2-7/8".

This is designed for a 3" wide channel bracket. We take a measurement of the distance between the holes, center on center, and that's going to give us a measurement of 2". Those holes are going to have a diameter of 11/16". The easy latch mechanism is going to ensure a simple secure hook up and disconnect. The really neat feature about this is it actually lets you hook up when the latch is in a closed position. All you have to do is drop the coupler over the hitch ball, and the latch will snap into place. I'm going to go ahead and place the hitch ball, which is going to be sold separately, into the coupler.

I'm not going to lift up on the handle, and you're going to see that the easy latch system allows the ball to go right into the coupler socket. You are going to hear it snap into place. Also, if the ball is not fully engaged, the lever would not be sitting horizontally. When the lever is fully down and you have the holes right here lined up for coupler lock or a pin, then you know the ball is seated correctly. If the ball is not seated correctly, then this lever would actually remain up and those holes would not be in line with each other. To disconnect the ball from the coupler, all you have to do is pull up on the trigger latch system, and it's going to release the ball from the coupler socket. This is going to offer a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. Just to show you the mechanism here on the inside, you can see how that adjusts up and down to engage and release the hitch ball. Again, it is designed to work with 2" hitch ball. The overall length of our coupler measuring from end to end is going to give us a measurement of about 10-3/4". That's going to do it for today's review of part# DM12688-95. This is the Demco trailer coupler.Video: etrailer.com .

Works great! No rust. Complete confidence hauling my towable air compressor. Much nicer than the pintle hitch once connected.

I decided I wanted to renew my Dad's old trailer. Starting with a trailer coupler upgrade to the adjustable "eZ-Latch". Thanks to etrailer it was an easy, convenient one stop shop and I couldn't be more pleased with the products and service. When it comes time to do the running gear and tires, etrailer will be my source. Thank you! 303568

Nice piece, very well made. Its just as advertised and simple to latch the coupler onto the ball. My trailer came with a pintle hitch and I hated the slop, this is tight, quiet and rated for 10K. 570628

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Installed this AWESOME hitch on my 20 ft equipment trailer after I upgraded to 8k axles. This hitch is a beast. I love the no touch when hooking up. Just lower the trailer down and it makes a positive lock sound. I welded the hitch to a 1/2 inch thick plate. Welded the plate onto the trailer and used my own gussets instead of the supplied ones. You won’t go wrong with this hitch! 592298

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


The coupler is a fantastic, well built and easy to use unit. The installation was super simple. The coupler lock is a great piece as well, it fits great into the ball socket on the coupler and locks super tight. Great pieces of equipment. The coupler latch pin however did not fit the latch on the Demco coupler. Had to pick up a different one from Farm as Fleet, but we can use the other one on my other trailer. 126978

Looks good, quality controle could be a little better. Nothing that will effect the function. It looks like it was not cleaned after welding. There is a lot of weld splatter. I am painting it a different color anyway so I will clean it up. 527512

I just got the hitch coupler. Will know more when it is installed in a week or so. Using the coupler, ball mount and hitch ball to upgrade my car hauler to 10K. 441561

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Coupler mechanism is finicky, you have to shake the trailer tongue to get it to lock. The pin hole is too small in diameter to accept a lock so you have to use a ball lock to lock the trailer. Also it’s plastic so if it sticks you have to be careful tapping on it. I wouldn’t by again and if it breaks I’ll go back to normal coupler. 489782


Comments
The coupler mechanism is adjustable. Use the adjustment bolt on the underside of the latching mechanism to adjust until the coupler will self-latch when set atop the trailer ball.

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


i had a deck over trailer that rode way too high making the the trailer ass heavy and caused it to sway. I removed the old one and welded this one on and now the trailer rides level and pulls amazing. The quick hookup feature on this is a must have as the ball seats perfectly every time. Great product and will definitely be getting another for my other trailer as it's coupler wears. 462048

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


This is the best hitch on the market! I've changed over all 4 of my trailers to this hitch. Simple hook/unhook, releases off the ball smooth, no pins to mess with. The included steel bracket (product #DM6125-81) is super heavy duty & so is the hitch itself, plenty heavy for any 2 5/16" trailer. I hacked off my existing hitches w a cutoff saw, welded a plate then the bracket and did each of my trailers , w paint, in less than an hour. 463489

Ask the Experts about this Demco Adjustable Trailer Coupler

  • Recommended Channel Mount Coupler/Brake Controller Installation for Trailer Towed By 2010 Tacoma
    The Demco # DM12688-95 you've looked at would be a good choice. The 2 inch channel mount coupler is compatible with a 3 inch channel, and has bolt spacing of 2 inches on center. Demco is known for high quality products, you'll get years of service out of the coupler. With a 10K capacity it'll be a lot stronger than you really need, but whenever you're talking weight capacities and safety, a little overkill is a good thing. I've heard of absolutely no problems with the Demco Ez-Latch...

  • Distance Between Mounting Holes of Demco Coupler part # DM12688-95
    The distance between the mounting holes of the Demco Coupler part # DM12688-95 that you referenced is 2 inches. The diameter of the holes is 11/16 inches. The inside channel width of the coupler is 2 inches too.

  • Recommended Replacement Coupler for Atwood 83000 Surge Brake Actuator Coupler
    The Atwood 83000 was a 8,000 lb drum brake actuator for a 2 inch hitch ball that has been discontinued. For a replacement I recommend the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w/ Drop - Drum - Zinc - 2" Ball - 8,000 lbs # DM8669112. The only other option for that 8,000 lb capacity is a channel mount like the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator - Drum - Zinc - 8" Adjustable Channel Down - 8,000 lbs # DM8759131 which will allow you to use a coupler like the Demco Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel...

  • Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator for Drum Brakes with Lockout
    The Lockout Solenoid Kit # DM5837 you referenced is not designed to fit the DA86 model of Demco actuators, which is the part # DM8608601 you referenced. There are a couple of alternative options for a similar hydraulic drum brake actuator with a lockout that I recommend checking out. The first is the Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator - Drum - Multi-Fit Ball - Bolt On - with Lockout - 7K # T4339720 and the other is the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator w/ Manual Lockout - Drum - Zinc - 8"...

  • Can an A-Frame Coupler be Removed and a Flat Plate or Channel Coupler Installed in its Place
    Your plan could definitely work but what I would do is weld on a channel, such as # DM59601, and using a coupler such as # DM12688-95 for a 2 inch ball or # DM07678-95 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. And of course, some hardware, # PS024202, to mount the coupler to the channel. This type of set up was designed to take off/move the coupler more so than a flat mount. Like you said there is a lot of welding that will need to be done especially to reach the capacity needed. It sounds like you have...

  • Recommendation for 2 Inch Ball, Bolt-On Trailer Coupler
    I have a solution for you, but Titan does not offer their Bolt-On Coupler for 2-5/16 Inch Ball # T4855300 in a 2 inch hitch ball design. For a bolt-on trailer coupler with a trigger latch, designed for a 2 inch ball I recommend the Demco Trailer Coupler, Adjustable Channel Mount, # DM12688-95. This coupler will mount in a 3 inch channel, like # DM59601, and has a weight capacity of 12,500 pounds. This is the highest capacity adjustable mount coupler we offer for a 2 inch hitch ball....
