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

Parts went on our Rose Parade float, for towing in case of drive failure. Regularly used to train crews in application. Have not been needed during parade as yet. With luck theyll die in place, of old age. :

This is exactly what I wanted. I have use a smaller version of this on another trailer I built in 1980 it still works great. So I knew what I wanted when I began looking for a heavier duty one. I wish I already had it mounted so I could upload a picture of it in use. I say that because I make it removable, I have been using the other one I have on both my trailers but that means I have to make two trips rather than having a buddy pull one of them. But doing it this way makes it hard for someone to steal my trailers. I always have good luck buying from www.etrailer.com 316400

I haven't had the chance to get it welded on yet, so I fill focus on the order/shipping. First, I have been a satisfied E-Trailer customer since 2007. They have always had the best price/shipping and delivered on time or ahead of schedule. That is until now. I placed the order for this June 16th and due to the manufacturers back order it was delayed 5 times until the first week of August. Now to my gripes. 1) It would have been helpful if the webpage showed current stock/shipping estimate BEFORE I ordered. 2) The price changed in the 6 weeks before shipping however, I don't understand why the prices I commited to weren't honored at time of fulfillment. It was NOT my fault it took 6 weeks to ship, why did I get charged the new higher prices? It seems at the very least the original pricing should have been honored in an effort to make up for the long delay. 146686

Review from a similar 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 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

etrailer is amazing. I ordered a trailer coupler that was not in stock. A short time later I got an email from George that listed several couplers that were in stock. I selected a different coupler and received my order 3 days later. I am very satisfied with the coupler I received. I have ordered from etrailer several times and I'm always completed satisfied. Thanks etrailer. 908105

Have not welded on "Bulldog Collar-Loc Coupler (7,000 lbs) on my trailer yet. The reason I bought it was, I bought from "Ft. Knox Locks" the "Bulldog Lock (siding collar" lock that didn't work with my setup. Your product is of very high quality and the Ft Knox's product is also the same "heavy duty" and quality. 877925

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2006 [email protected] Tear Trailer
    I might have an easier and better bike rack solution that does not require replacing your coupler but there isn't a way I can recommend bolting on the # BD028442. Instead the bike bunk part # CC-275 would give you a hitch opening to mount your rack above your propane tanks. Or we have the Lippert Jack It # LC429756 which attaches to your jack mount and gives you a bike rack that mounts in a similar area.
