Works perfectly!

I bought the channel tongue trailer coupler because it was cheaper than the repair kit. I watch the video several times on how to take it apart and put it together. It worked perfectly on the old hitch. Good thing too because I didn’t measure the channel and got a 3” when I needed a 2-1/2”. So I have a spare 3” channel hitch just in case.
Thanks for the video. I got it right.




by:

Great quality and fast shipping




by:

This trailer coupler was as good or better quality if design, features, and materials as the big stores, and is priced 25%-50% less. I highly recommend it.


Comments
The coupler is now a year old and shows no signs of rust or corrosion, still very pleased with the service and the product!

I have not installed it yet but it looks like a very good quality coupler. the construction is very sturdy, the thickness of the main stamping looks like 11 ga (1/8") that is much thicker then many couplers I have seen. the finish is smooth, and I did not find any burs of sharp edges anywhere. the latching mechanism worked smoothly, and appeared to lock securely. when opened the latching plate that closes against the trailer ball moved well away, this should help during coupling and uncoupling. I have had hitches in the past that were hard to put on because the latching plate would catch on the ball and get pushed up into the receiver, you would have to crank the trailer back up, preposition truck or trailer, and try again, what a pain. and this eventually causes damage to the latch. I anticipate good results.
I will try to give a follow up review after I install and use it a few times.




by:

I put the coupler on the tongue of a garden type trailer. I have a ball on the back of my riding lawn mower for moving a kayak trailer and wanted to use the trailer with the lawn mover. It works great as expected.




by:

Product was (an is) perfect. Shipping was on time. One or two swipes with a file on the tongue and it was ready to weld. Great service on the order. (pix may or ma not follow. As trailer is loaded and buried in a garage....) DN




by:

Haven't had the opportunity to use all the parts ordered(doing 2 trailers at one time)but so far I am very pleased not only with the quality of the parts but also the timely fashion in which I received them. Thank you and I will be ordering again.




by:

The trailer coupler was exactly what I wanted I put it on there in less than 2 minutes it works great with my tow bar I am now able to manually pull my log splitter with ease thanks for your help Jessica B




by:

Price was good. A little disappointed that safety pin was not included with hitch.
Had to re-use old chain and pin which meant drilling of hitch to attach.




by:

Product was fine shipping was the problem took longer than I thought it was going to takeProduct was in stock took three days to ship out




by:

I needed to restore my 20 year old boat trailer that I keep my 65 year old skiff on. Everything I needed was in stock and arrived at my house in a few days with free shipping. Highest quality merchandise from a great company.




by:

Was easy to replace and worked well.




by:

Needed a better hitch for the lawn mower, this is exactly what I was looking for. No more trailer pin coming off.




by:

Looks like a quality product, the holes are a little smaller on sides than my bolts, will either drill them or it or use smaller bolts
