Video Transcript for Husky Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - HT87076 Review

Today well be reviewing part number HT87076. This is the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler for 2" balls. It's going to feature a 3" wide channel. The channel tongue coupler is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle providing a nice, safe connection point. This is a simple installation. You can use the bolt pattern, 2 on each side and 1 on top for a bolt-on install or you can simply weld this on to your trailer tongue. The distance that we have between holes from center to center is going to measure 3" and the diameter of each hole is going to give us 1/2".

The overall length of the coupler is going to give us a measurement of about 11". Here on top it features the quick-release lever-style latch that makes hookup and disconnect fast and easy. It also includes the safety pin that inserts through the latch to help keep the ball clamp in a locked position. It's connected with the safety chain so it secures to the pin that way you don't have to worry about losing it. This is made from a steel construction.

It is corrosion-resistant due to the zinc-plated finish. It's going to provide us with a gross weight capacity of 6,000 lbs. The way this system operates is if you look underneath here you can see the mechanism that holds the ball in place or releases it. If I open the latch, that drops; if I close the latch, it goes back up. Lift it open, I can take the 2" ball, fit it in to place, close the latch over top and it's going to secure the ball in place inside the coupler head. To release it I open up the latch, it disengages allowing me to remove the ball.

It's very easy to use and it's going to be a very secure coupler. Once you have everything set the way you want, so we'll just reinstall the pin and you will be set to go. To get that in there all you go to do is pinch it and then push it through the holes. That's going to keep the lever from being able to come up and its going to keep the coupler from disengaging or disconnecting from the hitch ball. That's going to do it for today's review of part number HT87076. This is the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler for 2" balls. .

The Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler is a very well constructed, heavy duty piece. I see no reason to doubt its 6000 lb capacity. The latch is solid and locks and unlocks as it should. A real bargain. 490080

The product itself was OK as far as quality. The issue is that it didn't fit as advertised and etrailer was going to charge twice the amount of shipping they charged to get it here in the first place to return it for a refund. Cha ching!! I was pretty fond of these guys before this transaction but not no mo! I'll do my shopping elsewhere from now on. Bit of advice for those ordering. Make damned sure whatever you're ordering fits or is the right part cuz if you ship it back, it's going to cost you. 453427

I bought a 2" coupler to replace a crappy one that came on my dump trailer. I talked to Ellen in customer service and she was great in helping me get the right one I just installed it and it came out perfect! 277120



- HT87076
by:

Was what I expected & fit with no problem with 1 exception which was my fault, this trailer coupler is 3" wide which I knew but is also 3" tall, my old trailer coupler was 3"x 2" tall & I didn't think to measure the depth so it covered up the chain attachment points. I installed it anyway moving the chains...I was replacing the chains anyway so it wasn't a big deal just unexpected. 189507

the parts are great a lot heavier duty then I was expecting. I am very happy with the products. the only suggestion is to make it more clear on the parts that come with no mounting bolts so you know to order the extra hardware. 610693

E trailer did a fantastic job. Before order: Technical support / help was excellent. Goal, conversion of a 1998 Floe snowmobile trailer from surge to electric brakes. Problem, due to time and corrosion, I could only supply partial part numbers, spindle diameter. etrailer did a fantastic job, researching, and getting me the correct part numbers, so I could order. Julie did a great job. She was very timely, communicated clearly and honestly, and just “kept me in the loop”. I received the order came on the projected date, complete and undamaged. Excellent. I would highly recommend etrailer, for your part needs. 439116

I changed from hydraulic surge to electric, so I needed a new couple. The install was simple, and towing is much more solid by getting rid of the sloppy slide action coupler with the surge brakes. 406769


Comments

The conversion from hydraulic to electric is something I should have done when I first bought the trailer. The parts are working great! I want to say things are working better now than when the trailer was new. It pulls easier, sways less, and stops with confidence.

Ask the Experts about this Husky Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler
Do you have a question about this Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler?


  • Can Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler HT87076 Be Welded On Instead of Bolted On Trailer
  • It is certainly possible to weld on the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076 either in addition to or instead of bolting it to the trailer but since this coupler is zinc-plated welding it will release toxic fumes that are dangerous. If you prefer to weld this unit do so only in a well-ventilated area. Also note that you may need to touch up the finish since welding will likely discolor portions of the coupler. For a 2-inch ball coupler for a 3-inch channel tongue that is meant...
    view full answer...

  • Can I Remove A Weld-On Trailer Coupler and Replace it With A Bolt-On Coupler?
  • Yes, you can remove your weld-on coupler and install a new bolt-on coupler that fits a 2 inch ball. There is just a few things you need to do to before and when installing. You need to know what channel size and the weight capacity you will need for the new coupler. The most common sizes are the 2, 2-1/2 and 3 inch channels. Coupler, # CT-3001-Z , can be used if you have a 2 inch channel and a weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. If you need a coupler for a 3 inch channel, the Husky # HT87076...

  • What is the Tongue Weight Capacity of the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076
  • I spoke with Husky about the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler part # HT87076 and they stated that they do not test for a maximum tongue weight capacity on this coupler. That will be the case for most of our straight tongue trailer couplers because so long as you do not exceed the maximum trailer weight capacity of the coupler then you will be covered. With that being said, the trailer should never have more than 15% of its overall weight placed on the tongue. Therefore it can be safely...

  • Regular Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler to Replace Atwood 6K Hydraulic Brake Actuator
  • You could technically leave the coupler you have now, 84132, on the trailer but would get some extra movement when the actuator moves in and out. But since regular trailer couplers are so inexpensive you could go with # HT87076 which also fits a 2 inch ball, fits a 3 inch tongue, and has the mounting holes at 3 inches on center just like your old actuator. I have linked a video review of this coupler for you.
    view full answer...

  • What Size Coupler Lock Fits the Pin Hole of Coupler
  • Coupler pin locks like the part # 7690 are 1/4 inch in diameter. I am not totally sure which coupler you mentioned but if you are looking for a pin lock to fit a trigger latch like it sounds like you are the lock would need to be 1/4 inch in diameter.
    view full answer...

  • Removing a Weld-On Trailer Coupler to Replace With a Bolt-On
  • If you're removing a coupler that is welded to the trailer and replacing it with a bolt-on coupler, like # HT87076, t would be a good idea to sand and paint the tongue. Then you will need to drill the bolt holes.
    view full answer...

  • What Size Bolts Should be Used to Install the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076
  • The simplest way to install the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076 would be to have it welded onto your trailer by a qualified welder. Otherwise, the installation hardware is not included with this coupler. You would need to provide two 1/2 inch diameter grade 5 bolts or higher that are about 4 inches long with matching nuts and washers. I attached a review video for this coupler for you to check out as well.
    view full answer...

  • What Size Channel Does the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076 Fit
  • Yes, the Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # HT87076 does fit 3 inch channel, meaning it will fit a piece of channel 3 inches wide. I attached a review video for this product as well.
    view full answer...

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Channel Mount Coupler for 2 inch Hitch Ball Availability
  • I can't find any information on your coupler based on the part number you listed. Is there a brand or any other numbers listed? The Curt repair kit isn't going to work realistically unless it's a Curt coupler. A very popular channel mount coupler we offer is the part # HT87076 which fits 3 inch channel and is designed for a 2 inch hitch ball. This might be your best option since it will be very hard to track down a repair kit most likely.
    view full answer...

  • Is Hardware Included With Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler
  • The Husky Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler, part # HT87076 does not come with the mounting hardware included. This coupler is designed to fit a 3 inch tongue. The hardware needed to install this coupler is two 1/2 inch diameter grade 5 bolts or higher that are about 4 inches long with matching nuts and washers. You can check out the attached product review video for this coupler. This coupler can be welded in place. Welding should be done by a certified professional.
