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 - DM12662-97 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number DM12662-97, this is the Demco channel tongue trailer coupler with the easy latch system. This is going to be a weld on installation. The channel width here at the rear of our coupler gives us a measurement of right at 3 inches. The channel tongue coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to provide a good connection point for a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball. It's made from a heavy duty steel construction with a nice primed finish.

Again, it is a weld on install. It offers a weight capacity of 21 thousand pounds. You can see here with the easy latch mechanism, how that operates on the inside so it's going to connect and desengage from a hitch ball. The great advantage of the easy latch system is it's actually 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 a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball for our demonstration. Slide it into the coupler and you can see that I never had to operate the lever.

It snaps on automatically. You want to make sure that the lever is sitting at a horizontal position and that the pin hole for the coupler pin or coupler lock is lined up with one another. That way you can make sure that the ball is seated properly. If the ball is not seated properly, then that lever is going to have a pretty severe angle and it's going to let you know that it's not connected all the way and you'll need to disengage and reconnect. To disengage from the ball you just lift up on the easy latch mechanism and the balls going to disengage pretty easy. It does have that slot right here as the bottom of the lever.

That way you can install a coupler pin or a coupler lock, those are sold separately. You can see some different options right here at etrailer.com. The overall length of our coupler measuring from end to end gives us a measurement of about 10 1/4 inch. Again, it's rated at 21 thousand pounds and it's designed for a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball. That's going to do it for today's review of part number DM12662-97, this is the Demco channel tongue trailer coupler. .

Very happy with this hitch. If there is any pressure on the latch it is very difficult to release but usually remedied by giving the trailer a lil bump backwards. Being able to just drop it onto the ball is a lot more handy than I thought it would be... 443769

Once received the product was just as I had expected. Very high quality! When I first ordered there was a problem with delivery. This was more on the end of my local post office and not etrailer. The post office returned the item as not being able to deliver. however Mariah at etrailer got right on it and expedited the delivery back to me . Got within two days. Will order from etrailer again!

I replaced the hydraulic hitch system with this. We have to replace the hydraulic brake drums with self adjusting electric brake drums which we feel will be a better system based on our load. We are hauling a couple of RZR'S so the weight distribution was a concern. All the parts have been good to work with. The attachment nUt sav and lock washers were not with our package. A phone call later and etrailer had them on their way. The sad part is the Postal service has lost them at the delivery point. The videos have been helpful in getting us prepared for the upgrade of our trailer. 348381

I am just replacing couplers on my few trailers so i don't have to switch balls. This coupler functions so well i wish i woulda put it on the previous trailer. You can drop it on without unhooking th latch. Neat. Would buy again. 143318
