Are There Replacement Bushings for Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kits

Question:

The fold away tongue on my trailer has a lot of play in it at the removable pin and the bolt. The bolt and pin don’t seem to be worn so wondering if there are bushings that are worn.

I cannot speak for all fold-away coupler hinge kits but the ones we offer, the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit part # FHDPB230101, part # FHDPB330301, and part # FHDPB350101 do not contain any bushings. It can be rather difficult to just look at a bolt or hinge pin and determine whether or not it has stretched or deformed but I would be willing to bet that is the issue you are having. The loose connection between these bolts and pins is a rather serious safety issue so I highly recommend you replace the entire kit immediately. There is also the option of weld-on kits, the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit part # FHDPW330300 or part # FHDPW230300 which are more secure.
