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 - DM12563 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number DM12563. This is the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler with the eZ-Latch mechanism. The channel tongue coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to provide a really nice connection point for your 2" hitch ball. It's made from a heavy-duty steel construction with a nice primed finish. You can see here that this is going to be a weld-on installation.

It is designed for a 2" ball with a weight capacity of 10,000 lbs. That's the weight capacity of the coupler's going to provide. If we take a measurement of the channel width measuring from inside-to-inside, that's going to give us a measurement of right at 3". The overall length of our coupler measuring from end-to-end is going to give us a measurement of right around 14". Now, it does have the eZ-Latch mechanism that's going to ensure a nice simple, secure hookup and disconnect. The great advantage of the eZ-Latch mechanisms is that it's going to let you hook up when the latch is in a closed position.

All you have to do is drop the coupler over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. I have our 2" hitch ball here for demonstration. If you need a hitch ball you can find those right here at etrailer.com. I'm going to fit it in to the coupler. Push it all the way in. It's going to snap into place.

This coupler is also going to feature a hole right here, that's to install a pin or a coupler pin and lock. A nice way to tell if the ball is seated correctly or fully engaged inside the coupler is to make sure that those holes are in line with one another and that the latch is sitting horizontally. If the latch is at an angle or those holes don't line up with one another, then the hitch ball probably is not connected all the way as it should be, so you want to disengage from the ball and reconnect. To disengage from the hitch ball, all you got to do is lift up on the lever and it's going to release the ball from the coupler. That's going to do it for today's review of part number DM12563. This is the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler. .

I had a hard time finding a 3 inch channel coupler (2 inch ball) that could handle 7500lbs+, for which my trailer was rated. I tried local spots, like my local trailer supply. none had any over 5,000lbs. I found this gem that can handle 10k! Thank you for quick shipping as always. Happy repeat customer. Thank you etrailer! 406861

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


  • Can Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler HT87076 Be Welded On Instead of Bolted On Trailer
  • It is certainly possible to weld on the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076 either in addition to or instead of bolting it to the trailer but since this coupler is zinc-plated welding it will release toxic fumes that are dangerous. If you prefer to weld this unit do so only in a well-ventilated area. Also note that you may need to touch up the finish since welding will likely discolor portions of the coupler.

  • Length added to Trailer Tongue When Demco # DM15000-52 or DM12563 Coupler is Installed
  • The two couplers you referenced are identical size-wise. The # DM15000-52 is a bolt-on application with the EZ latch system and a silver finish. The DM12563 uses a standard latch, is a weld-on application and has a red finish. For the # DM15000-52, the easiest way to locate how far forward the coupler would extend would be to measure forward from the front most mounting hole 7.09 inches. The distance forward from the point where the coupler narrows will depend on how far from tolerance...

  • Trailer Coupler Repair Part Recommendations
  • In order to find the right coupler or latch for your trailer you will need to know the size of your trailer tongue or the model of the coupler needing the parts. If you have a Fulton 308 Series coupler on your trailer, then the Fulton Repair kit, part # F520801, will work for you. I have attached a link to the product page that lists the coupler repair kits and parts you can take a look at.
