eZ-Latch Coupler

Cast Coupler Cutaway

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. Disengaging the coupler is just as effortless. Simply lift up the handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.


Demco eZ-Latch in Use

The contoured, low-profile design of the latch handle helps protect the coupler from damage by allowing any potential hazards - from debris on the road to your ball mount backing into the coupler - to simply slide over the top. This helps prevent anything from getting under the latch handle and releasing the ball, and it can also limit any damage to the coupler should an impact occur


Unlike most couplers, which have a pin hole on the handle latch, the eZ-Latch coupler features a hole on the side of the coupler itself. Inserting a coupler lock through this hole will keep the latch from lifting, preventing disconnect and theft.


Sturdy, Corrosion-Resistant Construction

Made of sturdy steel, this coupler features a durable zinc coating that is designed to limit rust and corrosion. This finish has a 300-hour salt spray rating, allowing it to stand up to the elements.


The eZ-Latch's sleek, ergonomically designed handle is constructed of an impact-resistant polymer-nylon-resin compound that provides the flexibility and strength needed to bounce back from a collision. The handle is corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

Video Transcript for Demco Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler Only - DM14040-95 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DM14040-95. This is the Demco Channel Bracket Trailer Coupler for 2-5/16" hitch balls. This coupler is made of a sturdy steel construction. It has a corrosion resistant zinc finish. It's got the eZ latch design so it's going to ensure fast, easy, secure hook up and disconnect. The adjustable channel bracket and mounting hardware are sold separately.

That can be found right here on our website. This coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your towed vehicle. It's going to provide a connection point for your hitch ball. The eZ latch coupler mechanism is going to have a corrosion proof, composite latch. It's going to ensure simple, secure hook up and disconnect. The eZ latch design is going to let you hook up when the latch is in a closed position so there's no need to have it open, although you can if you want.

The beauty of this system is that even with the latch in the closed position all you have to do is drop the coupler over the hitch ball. It's going to automatically engage and snap into place. Disengaging is really easy as well. All you have to do is lift up on the contour handle and it's going to automatically release the grip on the ball. The adjustable channel mount is going to let you change the coupler height depending on your application. These holes are going to measure 5/8" diameter.

If we take a measurement the distance that we have between the two holes measuring center on center, it looks like that's going to measure right on 2". Again, it's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to have a 200 hour salt spray rating. The ball size is 2-5/16". It's going to have a weight capacity of 21,000 pounds. Taking a measurement here at the back, outside edge to outside edge, it looks like that's going to measure just under 3".

That means that this is designed to fit 3" wide channel brackets. Again channel bracket is sold separately. You can check out some options here on our website. Taking a measurement of the overall length measuring from front to back, it's going to give us a measurement of about 8-1/8". The last thing I want to point out is you're going to notice it has a hole located on each side here at the front of the coupler. That hole is going to measure 5/16" in diameter. That's designed so you can install a coupler pin and lock. If your trailer is unattended you can install that lock. If you don't already have one you can check out some options here on our website. A coupler pin and lock is going to make sure that nobody connects to your trailer if it's unattended. That way they don't run off with it. It's all about theft prevention. You can also install a coupler pin and lock with this connected to your vehicle. All it does is it just makes sure that the mechanism doesn't work properly. With that coupler pin and lock on there it's going to ensure secure connection, making sure the coupler doesn't come off your hitch ball, which is also going to prevent anybody else from being able to come up, disconnect it from your set up and move it to theirs. It's a great system to have in place. Again that part is going to be sold separately. If you don't already have one you can check out some options here on our website. That's going to do it for our review of part number DM14040-95. This is the Demco Channel Bracket Trailer Coupler for 2-5/16" Hitch Balls. .

This is heavy duty if you're looking for a great reliable coupler. Replaced on a trailer I use to haul my D2 Catepillar. The coupler has performed above and beyond, over rough terrain and long hauls. No signs of wear and absolutely no metal failure or stress fractures like previous couplers from other suppliers. 799454

Review from a similar eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


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 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 eZ Latch in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


The coupler would come loose unless it was pinned before I loaded my tractor on the trailer. This coupler stays open when hooking up and closed when in use. 452345

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 eZ Latch 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. 703091

Review from a similar 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 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

Review from a similar eZ Latch 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. 666913
