Video Transcript for etrailer Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler Only - CTA-400 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at a channel mount trailer coupler for a 2 and 5 16th inch hitch ball. This coupler is going to hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The coupler is going to mount on a three inch wide channel bracket. Channel brackets are sold separately so if you're in need of one you can find them right here at Etrailer.com. Your channel bracket is going to look like this, it may vary in height and mounting holes to give you more versatility in being able to adjust the couplers height but a channel mount design is going to adjust the couplers height, to match different tow vehicles. Now keep in mind, the channel bracket is sold separately, this is for demonstration purposes only. This would be welded on to your application, and then your coupler will slide right in, and then you can adjust it.

The holes are going to match up perfectly with the holes in the bracket, and once you find the appropriate height for you application, you simply secure it in place by using the existing hardware. The inside measurement of that channel is going to be three inches from inside edge to inside edge. We know this is designed for a three inch wide bracket because the measurement back here is just shy of three inches, so it's going to give it that room it needs to move around inside the bracket. This unit is made from a sturdy steel construction, it's going to feature a really nice black powder coat finish on it. It's going to do a great job in resisting rust and corrosion and lasting a long time. It's going to have a gross weight capacity of 14,000 pounds.

It's going to feature a thumb latch mechanism that makes it very easy to secure to the hitch ball. In order to open up the socket to receive the hitch ball you simply, push the thumb hitch down, and then pull it back, it will hold itself in the open position once you have it pulled back all the way, just like that. Connect your hitch ball, and then just push the latch forward to secure the ball inside the socket of the coupler. Really nice, easy design. A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick, I want to take a measurement from the center of the mount holes to the very front of the coupler. That's going to give us a measurement of about 8 and 1/4 of an inch.

The distance between these mount holes is going to be 2 inches on center, same for the other side. Again your hardware is included to get it secured to your channel bracket. Here on the latch mechanism there is going to be a small pin hole, that's designed for a coupler pin or a coupler lock, that pin hole diameter is going to measure 5 1/16 of an inch and the minimum span that would be needed or the usable pin length that would be needed for this particular coupler, that's going to be 7 1/8 of an inch measuring from this point here, to this point here. If you're in need of a coupler pin, or a coupler lock they are sold seperately, and you can find them right here at Etrailer.com. That's going to do it for today's look at the channel mount trailer coupler for 2 and 5 16th inch hitch ball.

Prompt delivery of this quality, heavy duty (rated at 14,000 lbs.) hitch. Installed it on the day I received it and bolt holes were precisely machined. An added bonus was that new, grade 8 (non-metric, USS, 15/16") bolts, nuts, and flat washers included. Nice adjust-ability to make the load ride level. Fantastic price= $50.00 with shipping/tax. Plus, a 'follow up' from the company to make sure the entire transaction was satisfactory....thanks etrailer! Quality customer service goes a long way with me! 503160

Perfect fit, great product couldn't be happier. Needed to replace the ball coupler on my flat deck due to a "friend" that borrowed it and lost the key to the latch lock. They decided taking a hammer to the latch was the answer. Had spare keys hanging in my garage... 419471
