What Kind of Welding Is Required to Install Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit FHDPW230300


What kind of welding is is required for the coupling?


Expert Reply:

Wire feed welding would be the best welding method to secure the # FHDPW230300 hinge kit to your existing trailer tongue.

To install the hinge, you would simply cut the tongue at the point at which you want it to pivot, and then slide the two sides of the hinges over the newly cut ends. They will slide on about 3 inches on each side. To determine the maximum pivot length for your particular trailer, I recommend taking a look at the chart on the product page for hinge kit # FHDPW330300.

The hinge kit would then be secured by welding around the entire mounting point.

I definitely recommend using a certified welder to complete the install on the hinge kit. Again, wire feed welding would be the best choice, but stick welding would also be sufficient, as long as it is still done by a certified welder.
