Review of etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler CA5100B


Today we're going to take a look at the A frame trigger latch coupler with the black powder coat finish, for a two inch hitch ball. This A frame coupler will let you hook up your trailer to you tow vehicle, provide you a connection point for the hitch ball. Now this uses a trigger latch design, which allows for safe and easy coupling and uncoupling of your trailer to the hitch ball. Basically you just put your finger on the trigger latch right here, pull up on it, then pull up on the latch itself, and that'll open up the ball socket underneath. Basically the way to install it, I happen to pull here a two inch diameter hitch ball. Basically you just drop it with it in the open position, you drop the coupler right on to the hitch ball, and then just fully completely close your trigger latch. As you do that, the trigger latch will actually lock into place right there, and then you're all attached, ready to go.

If you want to, the hole right here will allow for a coupler lock to go through, for extra security. To release it, just pull up on the trigger latch, lift the latch up and it'll release it from the hitch ball. This is made of a sturdy steel construction, has a nice black powder coat finish, to provide corrosion resistance. It is an A frame design, so it is designed to mount to a fifty degree trailer tongues. It is a weld-on installation, it is also SAEJ684 certified. If you notice the hole here in the back, that is your built-in jack attachment point, allows for quick, easy mounting of a round utility jack.

The hole diamter right there, I'll put a measurement on it for you, it's going to be right at two and a quarter inches. You also notice there's three threaded holes right here for installation of the jack, so it will require three, three eighths by sixteen inch sized bolts for installing your jack to this. Again, this is designed to fit a ball size of two inches, total weight capacity on it is five thousand pounds, tongue weight capacity is seven hundred pounds. The pinhole diameter right here, which is designed for the coupler lock is five sixteenths of an inch, and just to give you some overall dimensions, the width from edge to edge is going to be right at ten inches. The length from this end to this end is going to be right at thirteen and three eighths inches long. That should do it for the review of the A frame, trigger latch coupler, with the black powder coat finish, for the two inch hitch ball..
