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.

This replacement fit right on and bolted in place within 5 minutes. Probably would have been faster had I used power tools. I like the new ball latch much better. I have provided 2 photos for your viewing pleasure. First one without the product on and the second with the replacement attached and the old one setting on top. I want to say that George J provided excellent communications from the moment my order was processed all the way to delivery. etrailer by far has the best price & service. I would do business with them again in a heartbeat!! 388341

Purchased to replace the “surge setup” on my 24 ft boat trailer= replace the neck, go with electric brakes....much better setup, and NO u will not have issues (being electric) when backing into the water. Much cheaper than fixing the worn out surge brake system. Great product / A+ customer service / much cheaper than any competitors price! 628641

Folks if you've never had the ease of this hitch you are missing it. It's by far the easiest hitch I've EVER used. Back up n line up under it, then simply let trailer down on the ball. The black latch raises up then back down and it's latched, put safety pin in and done. Best of all the way it's made, it's nearly impossible to come off by accident. Great service too. 613733

I've been very happy with dealing with etrailer both in ordering and quickness of receiving my order. I have not installed this product as yet but have fitted and all looks good and I'm hoping it works as designed. This type of hitch will take away some pain and strain by not having to manually lock onto ball. 503682

  • 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...

  • Is There a Trailer Coupler for 50mm Hitch Balls That Can Support Over 5,000 Lbs
    I do have straight tongue trailer couplers that will work with a 50mm hitch ball and I do have straight tongue trailer couplers that can support 7,000+ lbs. That said, I don't have one that can do both as you are around the max weight for a 50mm hitch ball and could even be over in some cases depending on your exact hitch ball so be sure to check the top. The trailer couplers we offer compatible with 50mm hitch ball like the Titan Trailer Coupler part # T2343400 max out at 5,000 lbs. Therefore,...

  • Trailer Coupler Replacement for Shelby 5138
    The Shelby coupler you have now is a standard trigger-latch style of coupler that fits a 3 inch frame channel which we have great replacements for. For a high quality replacement I would recommend the Demco coupler part # DM15000-52 which has a very easy to use latch system that also is very reliable and won't get hard to use over time like most do. This also fits a 2 inch hitch ball. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this coupler as well.
