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 Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - 12564 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 12564, this is the Demco Channel Tone Trailer Coupler with a 10,000 pound capacity. This channel tone coupler is going to let you hook up your tailer to your tow vehicle, has a great connection point for the hitch ball here at the front. And one of the great advantages of this coupler is that it has a easy latch coupler mechanism that ensures simple, secure hook up and disconnect. What this does is actually it lets you hook up when the latch is in the close position, all you need to do is just drop the couple over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. It's a hands free design, no pin or clips are needed and as long as the safety mechanism underneath our latch isn't engaged, then out latch is not going to budge off our ball. To disengage, we'll lift up on that safety latch, lift up the mechanism and we can remove the ball. This does have a nice zinc plating that offers excellent resistance against corrosion, it has a 500 hour salt spray rating, so that makes it ideal for a marine application. This is from a nice heavy duty steel construction and it has a bolt on installation and the hardware is not included. Now from the center of 1 hole to the center of the other whole, we have a distance of 3 inches here at the top and the bottom hole to the center of either one of the top hole, measures 1 7/8 of an inch. Our bolts hold diameter is a 1/2 inch and here on the other side, we have a channel width of just over 3 inches, this is going to be ideal to fit your 3 inch wide trailer tow. Again, this is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch ball, has a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds and we have an overall length of right at 10 inches. And that's going to complete today's review of part number 12564. This is the Demco Channel Tone Trailer Coupler with a 10,000 pound capacity. .

Although I just received the trailer tongue. It can easily be seen its a quality hitch. Heavy Gauge Steel. The locking mechanism is interesting as you don't need to open the latch to drop your trailer on the ball. I'm excited to install it on my boat trailer. 325762

  • Dimensions and Mounting Hole Spacing of Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # 12564
  • Yes, the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # 12564 that you referenced does accept a 2-inch hitch ball and mounts to a 3-inch-wide trailer tongue. It's mounting hole spacing is indeed 3-inches and it offers a 10,000-lb weight capacity.

  • Distance from the Top of Coupler to Center of Mounting Holes on Demco Trailer Coupler 12564
  • I spoke with my contact over at Demco about coupler # 12564. From the top (outside) of the coupler above the mounting holes down to the center of the mounting holes measures 1.029". What brand is the coupler you have now because the 1 inch dimension is the most common for 2 inch ball couplers that fit a 3 inch wide tongue.

  • Thank you for including a photo of your WWII-vintage trailer coupler that fits a 3 x 4-inch trailer tongue. For this exact tongue size we offer only fold-away couplers such as # FHDPB340301 but we do have straight tongue couplers that will fit a 3-inch wide channel tongue and take a 2-inch ball such as # F343000301 rated for 5K and the others that you can view on the included link.

  • Does Demco Coupler part # 12564 Come with Install Bolts
  • The Demco Trailer Coupler part # 12564 that you referenced does not come with mounting bolts. You would need to supply them. A local hardware store would have no problem getting you setup with nuts and bolts. The hole diameters are 1/2 inch.

  • Replacement Coupler or 2 Inch Ball Coupler Repair Kit for Boat Trailer
  • The Coupler Repair Kit for 2" Curt Couplers # C25194 is not a universal fit for all couplers. It may or may not work with your trailer coupler.
