Demco Flat Mount Trailer Coupler - Fixed Coupler - DM15080-97 Review


Today we're taking a look at a demco trailer coupler for two inch hitch ball. This heavy duty ball coupler lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It provides a connection point for a hitch ball. This type of coupler is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo, and construction trailers. It features a really nice large composite handle. It's very comfortable and easy to use.Now, this unit does feature the easy latch mechanism.

What that means is it lets you hook up when the latch is in a closed position. All you have to do is drop the coupler over a hitch ball and the latch will snap into place automatically engaging the hitch balls, so the easy latch mechanism ensures simple, secure hookup and disconnect. If you want to manually operate this, then you can easily do that. That opens up the socket and then that would close the socket over or around the hitch ball.But again, the easy latch mechanism does that automatically, all you got to do is drop this over the ball, it'll automatically engage. Here at the back, it features a flat mounting plate which bolts directly to your trailer, mounting hardware, not included.

We're looking at a durable, sturdy steel construction with primed finishing, so it's ready to be painted to match your trailer.Again, it fits a two inch hitch ball, weight capacity on this unit is 10,000 pounds. The mounting plate edge to edge this direction measures six inches. Edge to edge this direction is also six inches. The mount holes are separated on the center by four and a half inches. Going that direction and then this direction, also four and a half inches, and then each hole has a diameter of five eighths of an inch.Now if you want to add a coupler lock or pin, you can do that.

Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. You need to make sure that the pin diameter is less than 5, 16, 7 inch. That's the diameter of the pin hole right here. See how it goes all the way through, and you need to make sure that the usable pin length or span is at least two and three eighths inches. That's the distance that we have from outer edge to outer edge.With the installation of a coupler lock or pin, the easy latch mechanism and the handle will not open up the ball socket, so that's going to increase security and prevent theft.

That's going to do it for today's look at the demco trailer coupler for a two inch hitch ball.
