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. Disengaging the coupler is just as effortless. Simply lift up the handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.


Demco eZ-Latch in Use

Unlike most couplers, which have a pin hole through the handle latch, the eZ-Latch coupler features a second pin hole through the side of the coupler itself. Inserting a coupler lock through either hole will keep the latch from lifting, preventing disconnect and theft.

Heavy duty and perfect for the 3”x5” boat trailer. Paired with a Fulton swing arm and it turned out perfect for my Nitro boat and the space issue I have.

I called this company after having bad luck with another provider. Jesse was quick to help me find what I needed and sent me videos so I could see what I was buying. Fast shipping and arrived in great condition. The heck with folks you can’t talk to. Or have to work a puzzle to get to a person. Thanks again.

First of I must say the customer service at etrailer was superb! It also arrived in two days. As for the coupler it was easy to install and I really like the quick couple feature on the Demco coupler. Have not pulled the trailer yet but it look like a well built quality hitch.

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.

  • Comparing Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler 12564 and DM12717
    The only difference between the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler part # 12564 and Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler part # DM12717 is the bolt pattern which is just slightly different with one having an extra hole.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. You'll need to re-use or replace your installation hardware as this is not included with this zinc-plated coupler.

  • Best Coupler Lock for Demco Channel Tongue Coupler
    My best recommendation is the etrailer Surge Brake Coupler Lock # e98887. This lock fits into either one of the two pin holes of your coupler # 12564. This locks your latch into place so one can't disconnect it from your tow vehicle. It also works when your trailer is stored unhitched since thieves can't hitch your trailer to their vehicle with this lock in the way. Another popular lock for trailer storage is the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip Couplers # e98893. This completely...

  • Recommended Coupler for Boat Trailer With 3" Wide Channel
    The coupler I recommend for your boat trailer is the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # 12564, which fits a 3" wide channel tongue, has a 10,000 lb capacity and uses the eZ-Latch system to fit a 2" hitch ball. This will allow you to hook up the latch simply by dropping the coupler over the hitch ball. I've added a link to a video review of this coupler for you to check out.

  • Recommended Trailer Coupler for Lightweight Boat Trailer
    As long as the tongue on your boat trailer does not exceed 3" wide, I recommend using the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler part # 12564.

It has an eZ-Latch mechanism which means you do not have to open the latch to couple the trailer. It is also made right here in the U.S.A.

  • Can Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator Work With EOH Actuator
    Since there isn't an easy way to lock out the Demco Hydraulic Trailer Brake Actuator 8605001, you would not be able to use it with the Dexter DX Series Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator for Drum Brakes # K71-650 Both a hydraulic coupler and EOH system are unable to both be used together, so the braking function would go to the Dexter actuator.
