Review of Fulton Folding Tongue FHDPW230300


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit for 2" x 3" Trailer Tongue. This hinge kit lets you create up to a 48" foldaway tongue for your trailer. It is designed to be used with actuators or standard couplers. Ultimately, it's going to help save some space. A lot of customers like to use this, that way they can create a pivot point on their tongue and easily or much easier fit into a storage area or their garage. It's a weld on installation. It's made from a sturdy steel construction with a nice raw finish.

No prep work is needed when you're ready to weld it. The pivot bolt, which is this bolt right here, that will need to be tightened done. It comes with a lock nut for the other side. That's included as well as the pivot clip on this side. When you're ready to pivot, take that out, and then you can pivot the unit. This is not for use on aluminum trailer frames.

It is designed for a 2" wide by 3" tall trailer tongue. The trailer tongue material thickness must be between .188" and .120". Capacity is up to 5,000lbs. Now the capacity depends on the pivot length. 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.

Simple, remove the bolt, place one end on one half of the cut tongue, other end on the other half, and then you'll need to weld them on. They're going to slide on about 3" on each side. To determine the maximum length for your particular trailer, I do recommend taking a look at the chart on the product page for this hinge kit. The hinge kit part number is FHDPW230300. That's easily accessible here at etrailer.com. This hinge kit again would secure by welding around the entire mounting point, but once that's installed, you can simply pivot.

It's really nice design. Again, nice durable steel construction with a raw finish. Detailed installation instructions and an owner's manual is also included with the product. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit.
