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 .

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

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


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

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

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.

Trailer coupling will not fit correctly on a 2" Ball...to tight and is always difficult to get on and off. 440928


Comments

We have contacted the manufacturer and they suggest pulling forward so that trailer is not pushing against the truck. If the ball is being pushed into the latch mechanism if will be hard to unlatch. Pull forward before unhooking it on a level surface.

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Hitch works great the only thing holding me back from a five star rating is the plastic latch handle. The latch handle flex's a lot and feels like it would break if pulled hard. I have figured out that if you start to jack the trailer up and then it releases easily. I will defiantly buy this hitch again. 264103

I ordered an easy latch trailer coupler in silver, about two days later I got a call and was told that silver was out of stock, but I could get sent black. I agreeed to black instead of silver. However when I received my trailer coupler it was a whole different model. I did not have time to send it back, however not the greatest to receive something different than what I ordered. 417333

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

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I needed to replace my coupler and had no access to a welder. so I ordered the Demco bolt on A style coupler. I had to do a little modification to my Trailer tongue but no big deal. The coupler is also heavier duty than my old coupler. I also like the fact that I don't have to make sure the lever is all the way open because the new coupler just drops onto my hitch ball. As heavy duty this coupler is I suspect the rest of the trailer will fall apart before it does. 198904

Etrailer.com is a superb, first class vendor...and George J with that company is an oustanding sales representative! Just recently I bought a DemcO A-frame Coupler W/ Jack Hole - Silver - Bolt On - 10k. This was a replacement for a trailer hitch that was bent thru heavy use. Not only was the hitch easy to graft on the A-frame, but it was much stronger than the original with a 10k lb capacity and the price was great. The etrailer customer care was also outstanding. I paid for standard shipping, but w/in the same day I received a message from George J that he was accelerating shipping service to 3 days at no cost. From now on I will buy all my trailer components and all hardware from etrailer.com. Great products, great prices, outstanding service! Thank you George! 469318

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch 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. 641124

Review from a similar Demco eZ Latch 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. 615672

Do you have a question about this Adjustable Trailer Coupler?


  • 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...

  • Recommended Channel Mount Coupler and Prodigy RF Installation on Small 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...
