Video Transcript for Fulton Fas-Lok Coupler Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Fulton Fas-Loc Coupler for 2-inch balls, rated for 3500 pounds for 2-and-a-half inch channel tongue trailers, part number F222500301. Here's what our coupler looks like installed. This coupler will allow us to attach our trailer up to a vehicle that has a two-inch hitch ball on it. It's a quick and easy coupling with our quick trigger latch coupler. Just pull up on this to release it. Once you have dropped your coupler down on the ball, simply push down, and it locks into place.

What sets this coupler apart from others on the market is that the zMAX finish on it will make it corrosion-resistant, so to last it a very long time. One nice feature about this coupler is that we have a hole right here that we can secure our latch with a padlock to prevent theft. This coupler was designed to work with two-and-a-half inch diameter trailer tongues such as this one here. It has a 3500 pound capacity, and works for two-inch hitch balls. This coupler features the industry standard three-and-one-eighths-of-an-inch distance between center and center of the two bolt holes to secure to our trailer tongue.Our coupler is ten-and-five-eighths-of-an-inch in overall length.

This coupler is a quick and easy way to replace a damaged or a worn out coupler. Alternatively, you can also use it to change your ball sizes being used, so if you have an inch-and-seven-eighths coupler, but yet all your ball mounts for your truck or your car is a two-inch ball, you can upgrade to this one and have a two-inch ball coupler as well. Now that we've gone over a couple features of our coupler, we'll show you how to get it installed. Here we are at our trailer. We're gonna show you how to replace our coupler.

Now the main reason you're gonna want a replacement coupler is if your old one is worn out, damaged, missing pieces, or if you have an inch-and-seven-eighths coupler such as this one that's on our trailer, and you wanna upgrade to a two-inch ball, you can do that as well to make it easier for you to not have to switch out your drawbar or your ball in order to tow multiple different trailers. So the first step will be to remove our old coupler.Most applications, you'll find it's held in place with two bolts. So you'll need a wrench and a socket to remove those bolts. Our old coupler was held in place with a seven-16th bolt, and our new coupler has a half-inch diameter hole, so we need to reuse new half-inch diameter bolts. Now our hole spacing also seems slightly different.

So we'll line up our coupler, and place in line with our front hole. Clamp it in place, and we'll use the holes in our coupler as a guide to drill out our back hole, and properly enlarge our front hole. We'll make a mark with our half-inch diameter drill bit for the back hole to make sure it's centered, and we'll enlarge the front. With our front hole enlarged properly, we will now use a smaller drill bit to go where we marked the center, drill out, and work our way up to half-inch diameter. Okay, with our pilot hole made, I'll use a step bit to enlarge it to a half-inch. We'll repeat the same process for either side of the trailer.Alright, now that we have our one hole enlarged and our second one made, we can now actually install our coupler. But first, the way our safety chains are attached on our trailer, they go through the tongue of our trailer, and the back bolt that holds our coupler in place will secure them in place. So first, we'll make sure that our chains pass through our tongue, place our coupler on top, pass our bolt through the coupler and the chain. You can see how our chains are wrapped around our bolt. This will keep them in place and provide a secure attachment point for our trailer. Now we'll pass our second bolt through the front and we'll thread on some new nylon lock nuts. And now we'll tighten the bolts down. Now that all of our hardware's tight, our coupler is installed and ready to hook back up to our vehicle. And that concludes our look at the Fulton Fas-Loc Coupler for 2-inch balls, rated at 3500 pounds for 2-and-a-half inch channel tongue trailers, part number F222500301.

Review from a similar Fas-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


I replaced the smaller hitch coupler on my log splitter with this 2" one so that all our trailers are consistent and I don't have to swith balls. New hitch coupler works fine. I'm using it in a very lightweight application so not much of a challenge for it but I'm happy with it and would purchase again. 336886

Review from a similar Fas-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


Used this product to replace one that is about 8 years old and rusted. Product appears to be heavy duty. Time will tell how well this China product holds up. The one I had was USA made, but, then again it eventually succumbed to rust. I happy with what I received and customer service was excellent, as always. 139754

Review from a similar Fas-Lok in Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler


I am not happy with the Fulton coupler I received. Every time I unhitch my coupler I have to get down and take a screw driver and open up the moveable clamp portion to remove it from the ball. The spring is not strong enough to open it far enough to remove it. It definately is too tight in the channel it is in. I am not the type of person that puts out negative reviews online. I may have just got a lemon. 571597


Comments
This coupler is designed for a 1-7/8 inch diameter trailer ball, so youll want to make sure thats the ball you have. Also, the jaw of the coupler is adjustable, you can loosen the nut a bit, which will improve the fit.

Ask the Experts about this Fulton Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler

  • Dimensions and Weight Capacity of the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler # DL13847
    The Fulton Trailer Coupler, # F222500301, fits on a 2-1/2 inch square channel. So it will be 3/4 of an inch too tall. But since couplers have mounting holes on the top and sides, you could use the top holes if the tongue on the log splitter has matching mounting holes. Something like the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler, # DL13847, might be more forgiving in terms of mounting than the Master Lock. I went out to the warehouse to measure the DL13847. The mounting holes on this coupler measure...

  • Replacement Coupler for Harbor Freight Trailer with 2-1/2 inch Wide Tongue
    Do you mean a coupler? Are you looking for the portion of the trailer that attaches to the hitch ball? Typically smaller Harbor Freight trailers have 2-1/2 inch tongues for mounting a coupler. The Fulton coupler part # F222500301 is designed to fit 2-1/2 inch wide channel and also is designed for 2 inch hitch balls.

  • Availability of Trailer Coupler to Fit 2-1/2 inch Channel for 2 inch Coupler Ball
    We have the Fulton Coupler part # F222500301 which fits a 2-1/2 inch channel and a 2 inch hitch ball like you said you need. It doesn't have the same bolt pattern as what your current coupler has though so you may have to redrill a hole or have it welded.

  • Will Bolt Pattern on Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler # DL13847 Match Fulton Coupler on Boat Trailer
    Yes, the mounting holes on the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler, part # DL13847, will be in the same location as the mounting holes on the Fulton Trailer Coupler, part # F222500301. As long as the tongue has not been modified the mounting holes are all at the industry standard of 3 inches, center to center, and the distance from the top of the channel to the center of the mounting holes will be the same on all of the bolt-on couplers.

  • Coupler for 2-1/2-Inch Straight Trailer Tongue
    We have all sorts of trailer couplers including straight tongue couplers that will fit a 2-1/2-inch channel tongue that is often found on a boat trailer. You can see all of these standard couplers on the linked page. For a 2-inch ball size you can use 3500-lb coupler # DL13847 or # F222500301 which are both bolt on installation. If you need a coupler for a 1-7/8-inch ball size instead use part # CT-2002-Z which is rated for 2000-lbs. This is also a bolt on item.

  • Straight Tongue Coupler For 2-1/2 Inch Channel
    We offer 3 trailer couplers that will fit a 2-1/2 inch channel and work with a 2 inch ball, but none have the mounting bolt spacing of 4 inches. Part # DL13847 has mounting holes spaced 3 inches apart center to center. The Dutton-Lainson Coupler, part # F222500301 we offer has mounting holes that are spaced 3-1/8 inches apart.

  • Ball and Coupler Recommendation for a Trailer with 2-1/2 inch Channel
    One idea would be for you to install the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler # DL13847 that you referenced since it will match the 2.5 inch channel. Once you get a 1-7/8 inch ball for your ball mount and you should be ready to go. I attached a page that has all of the 1-7/8 inch balls we offer and an FAQ page on hitch balls for you to check out. Another option you have is to install a Fulton Fas-Lok Coupler # F222500301 by having it welded on. That way you would have a coupler that will work...

  • Will 3 Inch Channel Coupler Work With 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Tongue?
    The Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler - Zinc - 2" Ball - 3" Channel - Bolt On - 10,000 lbs # DM12717 will not work on a 2-1/2 inch tongue. Instead I recommend the Fulton Fas-Lok Coupler, 2" Ball, 2-1/2" Channel - 3,500 lbs # F222500301 or etrailer option # CT-3002-Z. Either of these options will fit your tongue and will work with the 2 inch hitch ball. The weight capacity is significantly less with the couplers that fit 2-1/2 inch tongues so please note that difference.
