Demco Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DM15629-52 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Demco eZ-Latch channel tongue trailer coupler for a two inch diameter ball. Has a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this channel tongue coupler will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. Provides the connection point for your two inch hitch ball. This one does use the unique eZ-Latch coupler mechanism, which will ensure simple, secure hookup and disconnect. What's nice about it is it'll let you hook up when the latch is in the closed position, like it is now.

All you do is just drop the coupler over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. I am going to demonstrate that. I happened to pull, here's a two inch hitch ball you can see right there.You can see if you just put it on top of the ball, and then when you push down, you can see that it'll automatically latch and lock into place and you're ready to go. The latch then, to remove it, you just pull it all the way up and it'll release it from the ball. It's a very nice, simple installation and removal.

This latch is a corrosion proof polymer nylon resin composite, which is durable and impact resistant. The coupler itself is a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice silver powder coat finish on it, offers excellent corrosion resistance. It does meet the 500 hour salt spray rating, so it is great for marine applications. This is a weld on installation.

It is made in the USA.Few specs, again, it's designed to fit a two inch diameter ball. Weight capacity is 10,000 pounds. The channel width, in other words the size channel it'll fit on if you measure inside, is three inches. One last thing I do want to mention, if you look at the very front here by where the latch is, you'll see this hole that goes all the way through. Basically, this is for security, to allow you to install a coupler lock through there.

Basically, what you'll do is when you put that coupler lock through there, it'll keep your unattended trailer from being taken, or if the trailer is connected to your vehicle, keeps anybody from removing it from your vehicle. The diameter of that hole is five-sixteenths of an inch, so you do want to buy a coupler lock that has a five-sixteenths diameter, and the minimum span you need for that is two and a half inches. That should do it for the review on the Demco eZ-Latch channel tongue trailer coupler for a two inch ball with a 10,000 pound weight capacity.
