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 Flat Mount Trailer Coupler - - DM12141-81 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Demco Trailer Coupler with the flat plate mount. The heavy duty ball coupler lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, provides a connection point for your 2 and 5/16 inch hitch ball. It's going to offer a weight capacity of 21,000 pounds. It's going to be ideal for utility, livestock, cargo, and construction trailers. Now, the unit's going to feature an easy latch mechanism, that's going to ensure simple, secure hook up and disconnect. What that means is that you can easily connect this to your hitch ball with the latch in the closed position. Just line your coupler up over the hitch ball, drop the coupler over the hitch ball, and the latching mechanism is going to snap into place, and engage the hitch ball automatically.

You can do it the traditional way as well, if you want to lift up that latch mechanism and connect your hitch ball. You can do that. This is also how you're going to disconnect. You can see that the latch remains in the open position, without anything else holding it into that position. Nice trigger latch design, so you do have to pull up on that trigger to open the latch. Also keeps it closed, with or without a coupler pin and clip, or pin and lock installed.

A coupler pin is not included, so if you're interested in a coupler pin and clip or pin and lock, you need to check out some options at etrailer.com. Again, this is a flat mounting plate that bolts directly to the trailer. Hardware is not included. Diameter of these holes will accept 5/8 inch diameter hardware. Unit's made from a sturdy steel construction.

It's going to feature a black powder-coated finish to keep it save, and protect it from rusting and corrosion. Again, 2 and 5/16 inch hitch ball. Weight capacity is 21,000 pounds. Go ahead and take some measurements here at the mounting plate. Square design, so it's going to measure 6 inches going that direction, 6 inches going this direction. The distance that we have between our mounting holes going on center is going to be 4 and 1/2 inches.

It's going to be the same going down as well. Taking a look at the overall length, from the back of the mounting plate to the very front of the coupler. That's going to give us a measurement of, right around 9 and 1/2 inches. Now again, I did say that this unit will accept a pin and clip, or coupler pin and lock. They are sold separately. They're available here at etrailer.com. Few quick things to know, if you want to pursue that option, is there's going to be 2 locations on this coupler where you can install a coupler pin and clip, or pin and lock. You can install one right here, which would cross through, and go right above the wedge mechanism internal, here on the coupler. Or, you can do it traditionally, and slide one right here through the latch. The diameter of these pin holes are going to measure 5/16 of an inch, so make sure that the pin diameter is smaller than that, or does not exceed 5/16 of an inch. Then, you also need to know the span or usable pin length. If you want to use this location down here, the coupler pin and clip or pin and lock needs to have a usable length of 2 and 7/8. If we want to use this location up here, you need a have a usable span, or usable pin length of 1 and 3/16 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Demco Trailer Coupler.

Ask the Experts about this Demco Flat Mount Trailer Coupler

Do you have a question about this Flat Mount Trailer Coupler?


  • Recommended Mounting Hardware for Demco Flat Bolt On Coupler
  • The Demco Trailer Coupler - Flat Plate Mount - eZ-Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - 21,000 lbs # DM12141-81 is not designed to use u-bolts for installation. We do not have any u-bolts that even could work for this application. The bolt holes are 4-1/2 inches on center and 5/8 inches diameter. I recommend using the Curt Bolt Kit for Pintle Hooks and Lunette Rings # C48330 for this application.

  • How Does Demco Flat Plate Coupler Hook Up?
  • The Demco Trailer Coupler # DM12141-81 was designed with simplicity in mind. You only need to place the coupler over the hitch ball and lower it; ball and coupler will automatically engage. There will not be any more play and the connection will be as secure as other couplers and hitch ball connections. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of Lunette Rings Smaller than 3 Inches
  • We carry a 2-1/2 inch Lunette ring that has a four hole flat mount base, item # 63023. Other than that our Lunette rings are 3 inches. We do have other couplers that bolt to your trailer tongue, like part # DM12141-81. I've also linked the rest of our selection. You will need to be sure the mounting blot pattern is the same and that the weight capacity is high enough for the trailer you are pulling.

  • Can I Weld a Bolt On Coupler and Still Use the Bolts?
  • Yes. You can weld the Demco Trailer Coupler # DM12141-81 on to your trailer in addition to the bolts or in place of them. It is recommended that any welding be done by a certified welder so as not to compromise the integrity of the coupler during the process. At the end of the day, you don't need to secure it via the bolts in addition to the weld-but it's not going to damage it by using both.
