Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DL13897 Review

Today we're going to review part number DL13897, the Dutton Lainson Trailer Coupler for a 2" Hitch Ball that will fit on a 3" Channel Tongue. This trailer coupler is a trigger latch hitched design, which will latch on to a 2" hitch ball. It is a bolt-on coupler, designed for a 3" channel tongue. This coupler does have a weight capacity of 5,000 pounds. A few measurements we will do on this coupler. For the channel coupler it would be 3".

Another measurement would be for the distance between the mounting holes on the side, and these would measure 3" center-to-center. This coupler has a zinc TUFFPLATE finish, which gives you three times the corrosion resistance on a standard zinc plate finish. This coupler is made in the U.S.A. And that should do it for part number DL13897, the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler for a 2" Hitch Ball on a 3" Channel Tongue.

Needed a new coupler to replace the badly rusted 1 7/8 one on the trailer I was refurbishing. It had been left out i the elements for at least 6 years and one had to use a hammer to get the latch to work. Now all is well and a one hand operation. 50866

The coupler is working great. It still looks brand new and shows no sign of rust even though it stays out in the elements year round.

the shipping was fast with well packaging . If you have a Fulton coupler on now the length of it is 11 inches and the Dutton-Lainson is a little shorter, bolt holes don't line up. 249694

Purchased this coupler as replacement to exact same one that is 6 years old. Bolt holes don't properly match trailer tongue, requires me to modify tongue or coupler. I have not encountered this when replacing other trailer couplers. 233061

I did not like the way my trailer connected to my tractor. I decided to try putting a coupler on the end of the trailer tongue. I ordered this one and received it right away. It fit perfectly and was easy to put on. I am very happy with the way it turned out. The coupler is very well made and heavy duty. It should last forever. 214326
