Video Transcript for Auto Lock Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Coupler Head - SM2516NP Review

Today we're going to review Part #SM2516NP. This is the Temco autolock gooseneck coupler. It has a 24,000 pound weight capacity. Now this is an autolock design which will work with the same principle as a fifth wheel. Basically, these jaws right under here of the coupler will open and unhook from the gooseneck hitch ball without having to raise or lower your coupler. This is a weld-on design. It's designed for this to be welded to a 4 inch overall diameter tube.

The ball size that it connects to is a 2 5/16 and it does have a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds. How it operates, it has a pin lock right here that you remove the clip from. Slide the pin out and then what will happen is you can see the hook around there. So as you pull back on your handle here, that will open it up. You can see it will raise up. Once it raises up high enough, it locks into the handle right there. Then if I lift this up you can see how the jaws will actually open up.

These will release from around the gooseneck hitch ball without having to raise or lower the coupler. Then once it closes around the hitch ball, just like that, all you need to do is pull this handle back. That will release it, and you'll notice as this goes down, it will lock right into place. The jaws are locked around the gooseneck. Then for security, you just put your pin all the way back through.

Then put your clip in there just like that, and you'll be all ready to go. That should to it for the review on Part #SM2516NP. This is the Temco autolock gooseneck coupler with the 24,000 pound weight capacity.

Ask the Experts about this Auto Lock Gooseneck Trailer Coupler


  • Lock Recommendation for Gooseneck Trailer with Autoloc Coupler Style
  • The TEM AutoLock # SM2516NP coupler is 5 inches across, and the hole for a lock to pass through is 1/2 of an inch in diameter. I have checked the pass through locks that we have, and there are not any that are long enough, or the correct diameter, to work for this coupler. However, we do have several padlocks that could be used on this coupler in place of the pass through pin. These padlocks could be used while the trailer is connected and being towed, or not connected. For this application,...

  • Availabiltiy of a Gooseneck Coupler to Replace a Fifth Wheel King Pin On a Trailer Coupler
  • We have the Gooseneck Coupler - 24K, Item # SM2516NP, that can be welded to a 4 inch square inner tube. This coupler does not come with the tube so you would have to remove the fifth wheel king pin from your coupler and weld the gooseneck coupler to the existing square tube or weld the coupler to another tube and install it after removing the existing coupler and inner tube. At this time we do not carry the replacement 4 inch square tubing for gooseneck hitches.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Coupler Like # SM2516NP Is Difficult To Operate
  • Since the # SM2516NP is a weld-on application I am not sure if it would be easy to just change out the coupler on your trailer. You may want to try some white lithium grease to see if that frees up the mechanism a bit and makes it easier to unhook the trailer. It is designed to allow you to move the lever to open the jaws and pull the vehicle out. If that does not help you may want to consider either replacing the coupler or the entire assembly with part # LL2516ST. This is designed...

  • Gooseneck Coupler Hitch Ball Locking Head
