Video Transcript for Fulton Folding Tongue - Coupler Hinge Kit - FHDPB230101 Review

Today were going to review part number fhdpb230101. This is the Fulton Fold Away Coupler hinge kit for two inch by three inch trailer tongue. This hinge kit will let you create up to a 48 inch fold away tongue for your trailer. It will allow your trailer to be stored in even the smallest garage. It is designed to be used with actuators or standard couplers. This is a bolt-on installation.

It is constructed of a sturdy steel construction. It does have a corrosion resistant, zemat 600 zinc finish. The mounting hardware is included. The pivot bolt and the pivot pin and clip are also included. Now this hinge kit is not for use on aluminum trailer frames.

This part is made in the USA. Again the application on this is for a two inch by three inch trailer tongues. So measure two inches by three inches tall. This does have a five year limited warranty. Basically you would just pull the clip, remove the pin.

That will fold away to the side of the trailer. Now it also can be mounted this way to fold the other way. Now it is recommended by Fulton that the male casting, which is this part right here, that has the center section. This should be bolted to the stationer part of the trailer tongue. The female casting which is this one over here should be mounted to the fold away part.

So it can be used either way 180 degrees. You would want this to be mounted onto the stationary part of your trailer tongue. Now the capacity on this will vary. It does have a maximum capacity up to 5,000 pounds. Actually what will determine the weight capacity is the pivot length or the length of the fold away part of your trailer tongue. Basically the pivot length would be measured from the center of the coupler ball to the furthest pivot pole, which will be this one right here. If this is mounted to your fold away section of your tongue measure the distance from the center of the hitch ball, or the coupler, to this pin. Now if that is 48 inches which is the max it would give you the maximum capacity of 2,600 pounds. The minimum would be is if it is 24 inches then it would give you the maximum capacity of 5,000 pounds. The best thing to do would be to go to this part number on the product page. We will list a table that will list whatever the measurement of the pivot length is it will show you what the capacity of the hinge kit would be. This part does come with a five year limited warranty. That should do it for review on part number fhdpb230101.

I keep my boat in the garage which made for a tight fit to get into the house. I came across the Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit. - ordered it and installed it this weekend. The installation was much easier than I expected. Great communication from the folks at etrailer.com Now the boat fits with more space to move around in the garage. My wife is happy - so I am happy! Great product! Photo attached - I just have to move the chains so they connect behind the coupler. 103680

This has not changed in how it looks for the last 25 years. No need to mess with a good thing. Easy to install and solid as a rock. I extended my trailer tongue 3 feet and it still fits in the garage. Now I won't have to get my vehicle tires wet at the launch ramps. 705393

After a year my Fulton break away hinge is still working perfectly. It was a breeze to install and is exactly what I needed to get my boat into my garage. ETrailer has a great site for getting what I need for my trailers. 576982

Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge bolted on square and easily. Holds the weight of my boat very well and allows the boat to be stowed in my garage now. I did notice that the coupler flexes a bit, but does not interfere with the overall towing of the trailer. I'm very happy with how this item mounted and it's performance. Good quality from Fulton. 477331


Comments
After one year, this product is still great. Cutting down some of the tongue from my DB trailer made it wobble from side to side at speeds of over 65 mph, but once I re-mounted my spare tire and went to the recommended 10-12 of total weight at tongue weight, problem solved. Again, I only had that problem because I removed a big section of the tongue to make it a proper folding tongue.

This coupler did exactly what I needed it to. I have a 17ft Pro Angler kayak and the trailer was a bit too short. I wanted to mount a small winch to ease loading after a long day on the water, but just didn't have the room on the existing trailer tongue. I used the maximum length extension for my application (4ft) and could not be happier with the results. Installation was pretty simple... just make sure you have a good carbide bit to drill through your galvanized steel. I wasted a lot of time using an inferior 1/2 inch finishing bit which just burned up. I went to Home Depot and got a good carbide bit and it went through like butter... no issues. Just think about your wiring and all that ahead of time and make sure you have what you need. Great product so far. 455663
