This coupler combines with a Lock 'N' Roll vehicle-end hitch (sold separately) to create a safe, secure, fully articulating connection that's great for towing whether you're on the road or off-road. It's more secure than a traditional ball coupler, and it's more comfortable and quieter than a pintle setup. The Lock 'N' Roll connects quickly and easily, and can adapt to any towing conditions.


Strong, Safe Connection

When using a traditional ball coupler, it can be hard to tell if the coupler is fully latched around the ball. You can head out assuming the connection is secure, only to have the trailer pop off of the ball and disconnect while you're towing. With the Lock 'N' Roll, that won't happen.


Lock N Roll Connected

This unique coupler is designed to interlock with a matching vehicle-side hitch to form a tight, secure connection. Unlike on a ball coupler, the latching components on the Lock 'N' Roll system are easy to see, so you can tell at a glance if the connection is secure.


Once secure, the Lock 'N' Roll setup offers a wide range of motion, which makes for a smooth ride. Because of the articulating action of the combined coupler and hitch, the Lock 'N' Roll connection can handle the harsh bumps and road shock that could otherwise stress and potentially damage a ball coupler.


The Lock 'N' Roll connection also makes your trailer less vulnerable to theft. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.


With the Lock 'N' Roll, you can have peace of mind knowing your connection will not come apart or succumb to damage caused by road shock, nor will your trailer be vulnerable to theft.


Comfortable Off-Road Towing

The pintle hitch connection is the most common setup when towing off road because of the flexibility in the connection. But that flexible connection can also result in a lot of slop. This can cause uncomfortable jerking as well as rattle and noise. In addition, when using a pintle/lunette ring setup, it can be difficult to back up your vehicle and trailer without jackknifing. And it can be hard to disconnect at certain angles, which may be a necessity when overlanding.


The Lock 'N' Roll assembly, on the other hand, offers a close-fit, slop-free connection that's designed for off-roading. This close-fitting design provides a smoother ride than a pintle/lunette ring connection with less rattle. It also makes it easy to back your vehicle and trailer up without jackknifing.


With the trailer end and vehicle end combined, the Lock 'N' Roll setup also creates a fully articulating connection that's great for off-roading. The bearing that's built into the vehicle-end hitch allows for 360 degrees of rotation, which means that your trailer could actually roll all the way over and not take your vehicle with it. The connection also pivots side to side and up and down, making it easy to take rough trails without jarring your setup. This also allows for fast and easy disconnection, even at extreme angles.


How Lock 'N' Roll Works

Lock N Roll Fully Connected

Each Lock 'N' Roll setup requires 2 parts - a trailer end and a vehicle end. Together they create a strong, secure connection. To connect, just line up the trailer end and vehicle end together and place the outer metal tabs of the trailer-end coupler into the hooks on the vehicle-end hitch. Then fold the latching plates on the vehicle-end hitch down and secure them in place over the tabs using the pin and clip included with your vehicle-side hitch. With the latching plates secured, the Lock 'N' Roll assembly will stay firmly connected.


In Action Diagram

When the trailer-side coupler and vehicle-side hitch are secured together, they form an articulating assembly with 3 axes of directional motion. The uniquely designed bearing on the vehicle-side hitch allows the connection to rotate a full 360 degrees. The trailer-side coupler's hinge allows the connection to pivot to the left and to the right. And when the 2 sides are joined, the tabs will roll inside of the hooks so that the entire assembly can tilt up and down.


Towing with the Lock 'N' Roll is easy, and it gives you a connection that's both flexible and secure.

Ask the Experts about this Lock N Roll Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler

  • Which Lock N Roll Channel Trailer Coupler Fits 2.5 inch Wide Trailer Tongue
    Yes, since your trailer tongue is 2.5 inches wide the correct Lock N Roll Channel Trailer Coupler is the part # 336TS506 which was designed for this size.

  • Can Lock N Roll Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler Install Forward of Old Coupler Holes on Trailer
    It's not uncommon to have to drill new holes on a trailer tongue to install a new coupler as most couplers have unique bolt hole spacings. That said there isn't an exact dimension I can give you on what you are asking for. Moving the coupler forward on the trailer frame would be what you'd need to do to install new holes. As long as both holes are being utilized and at least an inch away from the old holes (roughly) you'll be fine. You'll have to use your best judgment.

  • Lock N Roll Hitch Assembly for 5 Inch Drop
    The correct Lock N Roll hitch assembly is going to depend on the size of the channel the coupler of your trailer sits on. You need about a 5" drop, and the closest is going to be the 4-1/2" drop Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for 2" Receivers - 4-1/2" Drop/Rise - Vehicle Side # 336VS517. Being 1/2" away from perfectly level is not going to be an issue, and in order to secure the Lock N Roll to your hitch you need the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880.

  • Does Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Require Lock N Roll Trailer Coupler
    Yes, the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for 2" Receivers # 336VS511 does need the trailer to have a matching Lock N Roll coupler.

  • Can Lock N Roll Hitch System be Used with Disc Brakes on Trailer
    I reached out to my contact at Lock N Roll and he said that their system can be used with a surge brake application and that everything will function normally. The Coupler # 336TS502 would be the easiest to install if you have that type of surge brake system, but there are also the channel mounts for 2" # 336TS528, 2-1/2" # 336TS506, and 3" # 336TS508 channels if you're able to install one of those.

  • Trailer Side Options for Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Setup
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch w/ 3-Position Channel - 2" Receivers # 336VS503505 is just the vehicle side of the equation. The reason for this is because not all trailers have the same setup. For the trailer side we have a few options based on the style of the trailer. The part # 336TS528 is for a 2 inch straight channel, the part # 336TS504 is for an A-frame trailer, # 336TS506 is for a 2-1/2 inch straight coupler, and # 336TS508 is for a 3 inch straight channel.
