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.

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!

  • 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. For a 2-inch ball coupler for a 3-inch channel tongue that is meant...

  • 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. If you are looking to replace the entire coupler, the size of the trailer channel and the ball...

  • 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...

  • Should Hitch Ball Move Inside Coupler When Towing Trailer
    The Demco # DM12563 is not made to be adjusted, but what you're experiencing is normal. There should be room for play to allow for the normal movement of the trailer. If it was tight it would not be able to move and pivot as intended. If you want to limit the jerk you feel in your vehicle, you might want to consider the Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2" Hitch Ball # C40047. This will help reduce the shock from rapid braking and acceleration. Just to make sure it is working properly,...

  • Can the Trailer Coupler 2 Inch Ball 3 Inch Channel Tongue DL13897 Be Welded
    The Trailer Coupler 2" Ball 3" Channel Tongue part # DL13897 can be welded-on as opposed to bolted-on as it is designed but keep in mind it has a zinc coating which can be very dangerous to weld because of the toxic fumes that are created in doing so. Therefore, so long as you have proper ventilation there won't be any issues. If you don't want to mess with the zinc finish then we do have the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler part # DM12563 which is designed to be welded on and doesn't...
