Video Transcript for Bulldog Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028387 Review

Today, we're going to review part number BD028387. This is the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler with High-Profile Latch. This Bulldog heavy duty coupler is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo and construction trailers. The Collar-Lok design which is the spot right here offers automatic and continuously tight fit for absolute security. There is also a hinged ball socked right here which makes hookup a snap. This coupler is designed of a high-strength steel which is very durable and it does have a visual indication of proper closure which will provide additional piece of mind.

Basically, what you would do is if you would pull this pin to release the latch, move the latch which would slide this Collar-Lok back. And as you can see, the spring will load it, hinge will open up and allow you to release from the trailer ball. And then when you close it, just pull your latch down and it would lock the hinge part over the ball. This coupler is designed for square or rectangle tongue mount design trailers. It is a weld on application and quickly I'll give you a measurement here.

It fits on a 3-inch wide tongue. It will feet on a 2-inch ball size. The overall length on this coupler will be 16-1/4 inches and, again, it does have a weight capacity. It comes with a limited five-year warranty. And basically again, if you'll just pull the latch up, the Collar-Lok will slide back which will release the hinge ball socket.

And that should do it for our review on part number BD028387.

The bulldog hitch coupler is clearly the most bomber hitch that u can put on your trailer toung. Thanks to etrailer, it is also very affordable. I'm replacing all of my old hitch couplers with bulldogs. 437187

Very reliable, rugged performance. No problems with its main purpose: Securing the trailer. But there are a few things that could be improved. For one, Bulldog doesn't offer bolt-on installation on any of its couplers. I'd much prefer to use 1/2-inch Grade 8 bolts rather than permanently weld on the coupler. And it's easy to pinch your fingers on the collar sleeve when closing. And due to the sliding collar design, it's darn near impossible to keep the whole thing painted, because the sliding collar wears off the enamel. Still, it's much easier to line up than a regular yoke/latch coupler, and it's much more rugged. 410016

LOVE this Bulldog hitch! I welded it to my new custom built motorcycle trailer and I will never go back to the other kind again. So much easier to get a positive connection. I also like the integrated lock hole in the latch. It's definitely worth the money. 408385

Replaced my old hitch with the Bulldog hitch. I love it! It centers itself and there is no hassle trying to center it on the hitch ball. Great product. 393019

I still think it’s a great product a year later. It is much easier to connect my trailers with the bulldog hitch.

We have put this hitch to the test and it has held up well. Very happy with the service and the fact that they checked back to how the product was holding up. That says alot for customer satisfaction. Will be here when we need more trailer parts for sure.

Product arrived in a short time and was just what I was after. With this style of coupler you don't have to do any guess work about knowing if the coupler is properly locked on or not, it's a foolproof solution. I am extending the tongue on my atv/utv trailer and wanted the best coupler I could get. 243205

The coupler has lived up to its hype and works perfectly.

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


This is exactly what I was looking for. This is a very good heavy coupler. It is replacing a 5K surge brake toledo bulldog coupler on a trailer I have beefed up with 600# of steel to the 10K level. To save $$$ and maintenance issues I am going to electric brakes after I decide on current axles or not. Very speedy shipping: I did not expect to see it untill 16 July 12. I have ordered from you several times and you have always exceeded my service expectations and your prices are very competitive. 47860

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


Best coupler ever - well worth the slightly higher cost. Very easy to operate and slightly more tolerant of misalignment with the ball when hitching up. I keep a plastic deadblow hammer handy to operate it. Way more secure attachment then the cheap Mau coupler that came with trailer which came uncoupled by itself. 310645

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


Excellent Coupler with low price. I replaced the older Bulldog hitch with this one. The channels made it easy to weld it onto 3" channel iron. I prefer the low profile style, instead of the high profile model. I also purchased a lock from etrailer.com that goes through the hitch, replacing the normal clip that it comes with ( pn 28012). They also shipped me a 2" receiver hitch lock ( pn 7683) for my truck, and they keyed the two locks to the same key. 191173

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


I changed out the conventional ball hitch on a dump trailer to a bulldog style hitch. There were issues ensuring the original hitch was on the ball correctly. The Bulldog hitch will eliminate that potential problem. Installation was easy. Took about 10 minutes to get the old hitch off and the new one on. The only improvement that I would suggest is to have the lever to retract the collar as the lighter Bulldog hitches do. This one simply has a sliding collar that must be forced back by hand. I always use my foot on the hitches with the lever. But this is a Bulldog issue and not an etrailer issue. etrailer service was outstanding. 469915

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


The couplers (3) are of excellent quality. Ordering was very simple by telephone. All questions were answered. Shipping was immediate and the product arrived in an unmolested box which surprised me due to the weight. I expected the box to be dented and the corners smashed. Tracking of shipments was important to me. Couplers will be installed on a rather unique vehicle. Each of the three cars of this miniture train will receive the new couplers. 109607

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


Replacement for worn out receiver on old trailer. Wish Bulldog were made in the USA, not Mexico. But, the others are made in China, which is even worse. 92372


Comments

No problems. Remember to keep a hand on the lever when squeezing shut and let the slide close gradually so you dont pinch your other hand. I keep mine lubed with bicycle chain lube with Teflon. Also, i always grease the ball. Yes, that is messy but the metal-to-metal squealing is prevented and your coupler will last forever.

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


Products are as advertised. Metal and castings are good quality. Units handled prep and welding nicely. Only two minor points of annoyance. One of the spring retainers arrived broken at the clip end. A spot of delicate mig welding re-assembled it. The paint on all four units was thick enough to inhibit both the lock pin holes and the ball cup pivot actions. A bit of rat tail file work and some oil rectified both. 666248

Review from a similar Bulldog Collar-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


I bought this old really cheap to rebuild. One of the parts that had to be replaced was the hitch, I towed it home with my fingers crossed. I googled trailer hitch, trailer and etrailer was one of the sites that was suggested. I had to find a hitch that fit the 3 1/2" pipe that was the tongue, voila there it was to my amazement. I ordered it right then, 4 days later it was delivered yesterday. Today I mounted it, it was an easy installation and I am really pleased with the hitch and install. My fears of losing a trailer are now history, tomorrow it gets tested with 1 1/2 yards of gravel for the slab for my new. shop 663229

It take a bit of getting used to, but you can certainly tell this is a best in class hitch. I pulled my 2006 crew cab longbed 7500 lbs. truck across the country on my PJ car hauler... Once at new home I used trailer\hitch to haul 4klbs. - 5klbs. of fence material - no worries... 659720

We ordered this on 5/27 and installed it on a burial vault trailer. Two weeks later, the pin holding the collar together fell out while in transit. 659505


Comments

Was the snapper pin secured correctly? The only way I could see this happening is if the bail wasnt secured over the snapper pin and it wasnt closed.

I recently sold a dump trailer that had a Bulldog 2 inch hitch on it. The new dump trailer I purchased is smaller but has a Chinese 2 5/16" hitch for some reason. I really like the Bulldog style and since everything else I have is 2", I purchased this to replace the one that came on it. As a self employed mechanic I have recommended my customer's use etrailer for supplies I use for them. They and I have always had a pleasant experience. Thank you! 656327

Do you have a question about this Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler?


  • Can I Bolt On a Weld On Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler
  • It may be possible to install a Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch # BD028387 on your trailer by drilling holes in it and using grade 5 or higher bolts to secure it to your trailer, but since it has never been tested I can not safely recommend you do it. We also do not sell this particular coupler pre-drilled. We have many bolt on couplers that you could install on your trailer with bolts but none of them are collar-lock style. I attached a page that has all of our bolt...

  • Weight Capacity Of Trailer Coupler On New Flat-Bed Tandem Trailer
  • I have attached a helpful article that explains trailer hitch balls and their capacities. As the article states, 2 inch balls are typically rated with a towing capacity between 3,500 lbs to 8,000 lbs. A 2-5/16 inch ball is normally rated to be able to handle loads between 6,000 and 30,000 lbs. I recommend returning to the dealer that sold you the trailer for a clarification. If you can see the rating on the coupler reads it is rated for 7,000 lbs, that would be for the towing capacity...

  • Availability of Straight Coupler Replacement for Titan Aero 7500 Brake Actuator # T4500600
  • The Titan Aero 7500 brake actuator, part # T4500600, has a 2-inch ball and fits a 3 inch wide channel tongue. It has a weight capacity of 7,500 lbs. In a straight bolt-on coupler with a 2 inch ball that fits a 3 inch wide channel, the coupler with the highest weight capacity would be the Titan Leverlock Coupler - Adjustable Ball, part # T4845000. This coupler will only have a weight capacity of 5,000 lbs, which is lower than the 7,500-lb capacity on the Titan Aero 7500 brake actuator....

  • Differences Between Bulldog Collar-Lok Couplers
  • The biggest difference, as you noted, is that the Bulldog # BD028387 has a 7,000 lbs weight capacity while the Bulldog # BD028382 has a 5,000 lbs weight capacity. Other than that and their color, the only other differences are that the # BD028387 is a 1/4" longer and about a pound heavier.
