Demco Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DM15629-97 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Demco Easy Latch Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler for a two-inch diameter ball. It has a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now this channel tongue coupler will let you hook up your trailer and your tow vehicle. It provides the connection point for your two-inch hitch ball. This one is unique because it uses this nice easy latch coupler mechanism which ensures simple, secure hookup and disconnect. Basically it'll even let you hook up when the latch is in the closed position, like it is now.

All you have to do is just drop the coupler over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. I just wanted to demonstrate that. I happened to pull . here's a two-inch diameter hitch ball. So you can see when you put the coupler on there, and when you push down with weight, it'll automatically lock into place and you're ready to go.And then to remove it, just pull all the way up on the easy latch and it removes very easily.

Now this latch itself is a corrosion proof polymer nylon resin composite, which will very durable and impact resistant. The coupler itself is a sturdy steel construction. You can see it has a nice red paint primer finish on it, and it is a weld on installation. This part is made in the USA. Again, the ball size it fits over is a two-inch diameter ball, weight capacity is 10,000 pounds, and the channel width that this'll fit on if you measure inside the inside is right at three inches.Also one last thing I do want to mention, if you look at the very front here by the latch, you'll see this hole that goes all the way through for security.

It's a pin hole for a coupler lock to allow you to install a lock on this and lock it. Basically it'll keep your unattended trailer from being taken, and even if the trailer is connected to your vehicle, it will keep somebody from removing it from your vehicle. The diameter of this lock pin hole is 5/16 of an inch. So when you do buy a coupler lock, you want to make sure that pin is 5/16 of an inch. And the minimum span that is needed on the lock is going to be two and a half inches.

But that should do it for the review on the Demco Easy Latch Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler for a two-inch ball, and it has a 10,000 pound weight capacity.
