Dimension of coupler

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 contoured handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.

Video Transcript for Demco Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DM13689-52 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DM13689-52. This is the Demco channel tongue trailer coupler for two-inch hitch balls. The straight tongue coupler is made of a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a silver powder coat finish. It's also going to have the easy latch design. This is going to ensure fast, easy secure hookup and disconnect.

It is designed to be a bolt-on installation onto your three-inch wide trailer tongue, three bolt holes per side. The channel tongue coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your towed vehicle, providing a good connection point for your trailer hitch ball. Again, designed for two-inch hitch balls. The easy latch coupler mechanism is going to have a corrosion proof composite latch handle. It's going to ensure simple secure hookup and disconnect, very strong and durable. The contour is really nice to the front of the coupler here, giving it a sleek clean look.

The easy latch design is going to let you hook up when the latch is in a closed position. All you have to do is drop the coupler over your hitch ball and the latch is going to automatically snap into place and engage the hitch ball. You can see there that with it lifted up, this would be a disengage position. It's very easy to do as well. You can also connect it this position, either way, but the beauty of this system is you can connect this to your hitch ball simply by dropping the coupler over the ball with the lever in the closed position. To disengage, lift up on the handle.

It's going to automatically release its grab on the ball. Again, sturdy steel construction. This is going to feature a 500-hour salt spray rating, so it's going to be great for marine applications. Bolt-on installation. Hardware is not included.

Three bolt holes per side. It's going to be the same pattern on each side. If we take the measurement the distance that we have between these two bolt holes, center on center, that's going to give us a measurement of three inches. Then the distance that we have between these bolt holes, center on center, is going to be one and seven eighths of an inch. Between this one and this one is going to be the same measurement at one and seven eighths of an inch. Again, this is for two-inch hitch balls. It's going to offer a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. It is designed for three-inch wide trailer tongues. The measurement that we have back here is just over three inches. It's at three and one eighth of an inch. It's going to give you that room to slide it over the tongue of your trailer and then bolting it on will get it all the way secure. We take a look at the overall length, measuring from edge to edge, the very front, very back, it looks like it's going to give us a measurement of about 11 inches. The last thing I want to point out is here at the front, we're going to notice two holes, one on each side. That's going to have a diameter of 5/16 of an inch. These holes are there for theft prevention. Those holes are designed to accept a coupler pin and lock. If you don't already have one, you can check out some options here on our web-site. The span that that's going to give us is going to be close to two and a half inches. A coupler pin and lock is going to make sure that the lever and the mechanism inside cannot be opened to receive a hitch ball. If your trailer is unattended, nobody is going to be able to come up to it and run off with it if you have a pin and lock installed. You can also install the pin and lock when you have this connected to your vehicle. That's going to keep anybody from being able to come up to it and disconnect it and then move it to their setup. It's also going to ensure that it's very secure. It's not going to allow the coupler to disengage from the hitch ball. That's just something that's really good to have in place. Again, it's about theft prevention. It's also got the lift that goes around the edge here. For unattended trailers, you can use a socket lock. That's simple. It just goes around the perimeter of the socket right here of the coupler. Then it engages up here inside of the ball socket. That's going to do it for our review of part number DM13689-52. This is the Demco channel tongue trailer coupler for two-inch hitch balls. .

It’s a little picky to latch and unlatch. You have to get all the weight off the tongue for it to unlatch. 666840

Outstanding quality, I love how this works. So much easier that the hitches I have operated in the past. I’m going to replace all hitch’s on all my trailers (5) with this style of hitch. 644508

I have converted over to electric brakes on my boat trailer. The new coupler does away with the surge brake. A nice, clean finish to my project. 580733
