Review of Fulton Trailer Coupler FHDPB340301


Today were going to review part number fhdpb340301. This is the Fulton Fold Away Coupler hinge kit for three inch by four inch trailer tongue. This is a bolt-on kit. This hinge kit will let you create up to a 48 inch fold away tongue for your trailer. It is designed to be used with actuators or standard couplers. This is a bolt-on installation.

It is of sturdy steel construction. As you can see it has a shiny, corrosion resistant, zemat 600 zinc finish. The mounting hardware, the pivot bolt and the pivot pin and clip are included. Now this hinge kit is not for use on aluminum trailer frames. It is made in the USA.

The application is to fit on three inch by four inch trailer tongue. That would be three inches wide by four inches tall. It does come with a five year limited warranty. Basically you would just pull the clip and pull the pin out. That would allow the fold away section, which would just be this part here, actually fold away.

It can be mounted the other way also to where it would fold this way. Now Fulton does recommend that the male casting, which is this casting right here, that has the casting on the middle here. This male casting should be mounted to the stationer part of the trailer tongue. Then this female casting part would be mounted to the fold away section of the tongue. Basically when youre going to tow with it you just put your pin in.

Put the clip on and you would be ready to go. Then if you pull it in the garage and you need to fold the tongue for storage just remove the pin and clip. This section which is the fold away part would just fold back towards the trailer. Now the capacity on this is up to 7,500 pounds. What you would want to do is look at the product page for this part number. It will list the table and show that depending on the length of the fold away section of your tongue, that length its called the maximum pivot length will determine the weight capacity. Basically what you would do is to determine the pivot length. This part is attached to the fold away tongue. You would measure from the center line of the coupler ball to the furthest pivot hole which is this one back here. If that fold away part is 48 inches then your weight capacity would be 4,000 pounds. Now if it is a shorter pivot length like 27 inches then it would give you the maximum of 7,500 pounds. Depending on what the pivot length is will determine the capacity of this hinge kit. Again I do recommend to go to the product page of this part number. Itll list the table and show you the different lengths. Then what your capacity rating would be. That should do it for review on part number fhdpb340301.
