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.


Demco eZ-Latch in Use

Sturdy, Corrosion-Resistant Construction

Made of sturdy steel, this straight-tongue coupler features a durable silver powder coat finish that is designed to limit rust and corrosion. This finish has a 500-hour salt spray rating, making the coupler perfect for marine use. The eZ-Latch's sleek, ergonomically designed handle is constructed of a durable composite material that's corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

Started to rust a month after a had it.


Comments
It is very uncommon for rust to occur that quickly, What probably happened is, the paint did not adhere appropriately to the coupler you have received. Like anything metal, if kept outside in the elements it will always be more susceptible to rust, but should definitely last longer than a month. We do typically recommend zinc plated coupler options in marine applications, as the plating is more prone to continuously being used in marine atmospheres. However, the painted options do have a 500 hour salt spray rating, so they should also be able to withstand these elements just fine as well. An option that we offer for the zinc plated couplers is part # DM13689-95

Heavy duty easy to hook onto trailer. Great hitch




by:

Great coupler! Magnitudes better than stock lever. Top holes aligned perfectly with old holes. Bottom hole had to be drilled. Shipping fast and efficient.

American made quality - Great Coupler!

by:

fit finish function is impressive, excellant product




by:

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.

Worked as advertised




by:

Great replacement for my old surge brake hook up. This thing is great! I love I can just drop the trailer down on the ball without havng to pull up on a lever. Crank it down and hear a click! She is good to go.




by:

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.




by:

Very nice product




by:

I really like this item . Phenomenal improvement over rusty old standard coupler. Really like the ability to couple in the locked position. My old coupler was often a bear to lock.




by:

Not always as automatic as they say




by:

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




by:

Fit right on
Easy replaced worn hi

  • Can the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler Be Disassembled For Powder Coating
    I reached out to Demco and found that you can disassemble the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-52 if you want to powder coat it to match the trailer. If you do disassemble the coupler, the stem screw will need to have the nylon patch removed with a wire brush and then Loctite applied when reassembled. Alternatively, you can powder coat the coupler while assembled. The Composite handle is powder coat friendly up to 425 degrees.

  • Size of Mounting Hardware Required To Mount Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler DM13689-52
    The Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler W/ EZ-Latch # DM13689-52 you were looking at uses 1/2" mounting hardware so you will need to pick up three 1/2" grade 8 bolts, six grade 8 washers, and three grade 8 lock nuts to secure this to your 3" wide pole tongue. I included a video review of the # DM13689-52 for you to take a look at.

  • Is One Demco 2 Inch Ball Channel Coupler Safer Than Another
    I am certainly glad you are taking safety into consideration when trying to choose your coupler, although none of the Demco couplers would be considered "safer" than the others you mentioned. Among the three couplers you mentioned: Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM12925, Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler - eZ-Latch - Zinc # DM13689-95 and Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler - eZ-Latch - Silver # DM13689-52, I recommend the latter, which is the silver coupler.

  • Boat Trailer Coupler for 3" Frame Boat Trailer with 3 Bolt Holes
    I recommend the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-52. I have included (below) a picture of the bolt measurements for you to compare for your trailer. It is made of sturdy steel with a silver powder coat finish, making it ideal for marine applications. eZ-Latch ensures fast, easy, secure hookup and disconnect. It is rated for 10,000lbs of trailer weight and uses a 2" ball. Be sure to pick up Coupler Lock # e98887 so that you can lock the trailer up and protect it when attached...

  • Coupler Lock Recommendation for Use with Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler
    Yes the coupler part # DM13689-52 that you referenced is lockable. For a pin style lock the part # 28012 would work well. Or for a lock that goes around the coupler opening the part # DT25013KA would be a great option. I attached review videos for both locks.

  • Replacement Coupler for Trailer with Surge Brakes to go to Electric Brakes
    You can replace the actuator coupler with a standard coupler like the # DM13689-52 which would replace all of the moving parts of your current actuator. As long as you match the braking capacity of your axles with the correct brake assemblies you'd have more than enough braking power. Electric brakes actually do really well submerged in water when used on a boat trailer. I linked a help article on adding electric brakes to a trailer for you to check out as well.
