Review of Fulton Trailer Coupler FHDPB350101


Today were going to review part number fhdpb350101. This is the Fulton Fold Away Coupler hinge kit for a three inch by five inch trailer tongues. This is a bolt-on unit. This hinge kit will let you create up to a 48 inch fold away tongue for your trailer so that your trailer can be stored in even the smallest garage. It is designed to be used with achewaters our standard couplers. Again it has the holes because it is a bolt-on installation.

This is designed of a sturdy steel construction and it does have a corrosion resistant, zemat 600 zinc finish. The mounting hardware is included. The pivot bolt, the pivot pin and clip are included also. This hinge kit is not for use on aluminum trailer frames. This part is made in the USA.

I do want to give the measurement. It is designed for three inch by five inch trailer tongue. That would be three inches and five inches that way. It does have a five year limited warranty. Basically what you would is you could pull the clip, remove the pin.

That would allow the fold away to swing all the way around to the side of your trailer. Now Fulton does recommend installing this that you should install this male casting which is the part with the center casting in it to the stationary part of the trailer tongue. This female casting should be installed on the fold away section of the trailer tongue. Basically now you can install this way to fold this way or 180 degrees to fold the other way. It is recommended to always mount this male casting to the stationary part of the trailer.

Now the capacity on this hinge kit has a maximum capacity of 9,000 pounds. It will vary depending on the pivot length of the fold away tongue. Basically the pivot length would be the measurement ---. Let me put the pin and cli-p back in, there we go. Now when I say pivot length that would be this fold away section. In other words your coupler achewater would be here. If you measure from the center of your coupler, or the hitch ball is connected, to the furthest pivot hole which will be this one here from the coupler. Measure that distance and if it measures 48 inches which is the max you can your weight rating would be 5,000 pounds. If it would measure the minimum which would be 27 inches pivot length then you would have your maximum weight capacity of 9,000 pounds. The best thing to do would be to go to the product page for this part number. On the bottom of the page youll see a table that will be listed. It will list whatever your pivot length is that you measure it will give you what the capacity is for that pivot length. Again this part comes with a five year limited warranty. That should do it for review on part number fhdpb350101.
