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.

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!

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.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler 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.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler 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!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


this was an effective solution to a bent trailer coupler and twisted frame. i did add welds and a piece of channel to the frame before i bolted it down. 4 stars because i had to hunt around for a lock long enough to go thru the hole in the front. definitely recommend if you have a difficult repair on a trailer coupler.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


My old coupler was pretty used up and rated at only 5000 lbs for a 10,000 lb trailer so it had to go. The new bolt-on 10,000 lb coupler is quality. I like the EZ latch because its smooth, self latching and easy. The job was about four hours including removing old coupler, welding some new channel in and drilling holes. New coupler looks good, works great, and trailer is safer.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I purchased the premium version of this bolt on coupler. I replaced a cracked welded original, and likes the bolt on feature. Used grade 8 bolts, its not going anywhere. It is extremely beefy, thick and heavy steel. The finish is excellent. It has a 500 hr salt rating. I clamped it into place with C clamps and used the holes in the coupler as templates to drill into the channel steel on the trailer. As a result, a perfect fit. It fits the 50 degree angle of the trailer channels like a glove. The fastening mechanism works very nicely. Unlike other fastener systems, it simply engages or disengages a spring that sets the locking mechanism. It requires that you pull the trailer forward under tension slightly to lock it in place. It has a beefed 5/16” locking pin hole. I purchased my locking pin locally as e-trailer has a 5/16 pin but it is not long enough as specified for this. A pin is not supplied, I don’t think this is normally supplied anyways.


Comments
Good, continues to work well. It requires placement against the ball or it does not close, typical of most hitches. It seems to snap right in place I like it. Worried the lever is made of plastic.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


When my old coupler failed I was very happy to find a bolt on coupler this heavy as most are weld on for a trailer this heavy. I wish I would have changed the coupler years ago. I always had trouble with the old one. This one is so easy to latch and unlatch from my truck. It is great quality.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Wow. This is what a trailer hitch should be. Up to now, I tended to buy trailer couplers based on low price, provided it was rated high enough for what I was pulling. This time, I decided to spend a few extra $$$ to get a premium coupler, and I wasn't disappointed. Coupling and un-coupling is the easiest I have ever experienced, fit and finish are excellent, and it looks built to last a lifetime. After years of struggling with a trailer coupler that was difficult to latch and unlatch, this is a breeze (you had to have things lined up exactly, and then still look/reach underneath to be sure the little 'catch' had grabbed the ball, plus fight against a spring-loaded lever to latch). With this coupler, you just park so the ball is under the coupler, and lower the trailer. As you lower the trailer, the little release lever will start to rise up off the coupler. When it 'snaps' back down, you are locked in place. Couldn't be easier. To unlock, just flip the lever up, and raise the trailer. No fighting a little latch that requires you to be exactly centered before it will latch, no way the latch can miss holding the ball in place, and no fighting the catch to un couple. I wish I would have known about this style of coupler years ago. It costs a few dollars more (but not much for one of equal tow ratings) but it works better than any other coupler I have used. Well worth it, if you hook and unhook your trailer with any frequency at all.


Comments
Still the best coupler I have. I have used it extensively, even doing some pulling with a tractor, and the coupler never fails to connect easily, and securely, and unlatches easily. If it seems reluctant to unlatch, just pull ahead a little to relieve pressure on the lock.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I have built several trailers in the past and I am currently building a tilt bed car trailer. I have made several purchases from etrailer.com They are great people to deal with and all of the products that I have purchased have met or exceeded my expectations. For this build I am using dropped axles which make the trailer tongue 5 inches lower than one with straight axles. I needed to be able to raise the coupler to prevent using a drastically dropped draw bar on the tow 4WD tow truck. I chose the Demco channel mount adjustable coupler to allow for the needed adjustment for different tow vehicles. This is a very well built coupler that attaches to the channel with 4 high strength bolts, not 2 like most other mounts. It also features auto latch system so you just lower the trailer onto your ball and the Demc automatically locks on the ball. Great product.

Demco coupler does a great job. Automatic hookup is very nice no problems

  • 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...

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...

  • 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...
