Review of etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler CA5400


Today we're going to take a look at the A-frame, thumb latch trailer coupler, with an oily finish for the two and five sixteenths hitch ball. This A frame coupler will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, provides the connection point right here for the hitch ball. It is a thumb latch design, which makes it very easy to clamp around the ball. Basically to open it up you just pull the latch up, slide it back towards the trailer, and it'll open the ball socket ready for the hitch ball. Then to close it you slide the latch forward and it'll close around the ball. I did happen to pull a two and five sixteenths diameter ball, just to show you how this connects. Again, as we mentioned, to open it just lift up and slide it back, that'll open up the ball socket, goes over the hitch ball.

You just push it forward, you can see that it'll lock right into place. To remove it same way, just release it like that. Now this is made of a sturdy steel construction, this one does have an oily finish to provide corrosion resistance, as you can look at my hand, you can see how the finish is very oily. It is an A frame design, as you can see right here, it mounts to a fifty degree trailer tong. It is a weld-on installation.

This SAEJ684 certified, if you notice on the very back here, the round hole with the three holes, this is a built in jack attachment point. Allows for quick, easy mounting of a round utility jack. The diameter of the hole that the jack goes through, put a measurement on that, it's going to be right at two and a quarter inches. If you notice it does have three threaded holes for installation of the jack. It does require three, three eights by sixteen bolts for installing the jack. The ball size again that it fits on is a two and five sixteenths diameter.

Total weight capacity is fourteen thousand pounds, tongue weight capacity is twenty-one hundred pounds. There is a pinhole right here, that if you do want extra security to lock it, you get a coupler lock, it does have a five sixteenths diameter pinhole diameter. Give you a few overall dimensions, we're going to measure the width, from this edge to this edge. If I put a tape measure on it, it's going to be right at ten and seven eighths inches wide, and in the overall length, from this end to this very end right here. If you can see, is going to be right at twelve and seven eights inches long. That should do it for the review on the A frame, thumb latched trailer coupler with the oily finish, for a two and five sixteenths hitch ball..
