eZ-Latch Coupler

This coupler features a simple-to-use latching mechanism known as the eZ-Latch. With this mechanism, hooking up is as easy as dropping the coupler over your trailer hitch ball. The latch does not need to be tugged or manually activated to allow the ball into the coupler socket, nor does it have to be secured in place. Just make sure that the coupler is properly lined up with the ball when you lower it, and the rest is automatic. Disengaging the coupler is just as effortless. Simply lift up the handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.


Demco eZ-Latch in Use

Unlike most couplers, which only have a pin hole on the handle latch, the eZ-Latch coupler features a hole on the latch and on the side of the coupler itself. Inserting a coupler lock through this hole will keep the latch from lifting, preventing disconnect and theft.


Sturdy, Corrosion-Resistant Construction

Made of sturdy steel, this coupler features a durable silver powder coat finish that is designed to limit rust and corrosion. This finish has a 500-hour salt spray rating, making the coupler perfect for marine use.

Video Transcript for Demco Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler Only - DM15791-52 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Demco trailer coupler. This is a cast ball coupler that lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to provide a connection point for a 2 5/16" hitch ball. It's going to feature your easy latch mechanism that's going to ensure simple, secure, hookup and disconnect. Simply lets you hook up when the latch is in the closed position. All you got to do is drop the coupler over the hitch ball, and then the latch will automatically snap into place, and it'll engage the hitch ball.

If you want to do it the traditional way with the latch in the open position, this coupler offers that feature as well. Again, the easy latch design lets you hook to your hitch ball with the latch in the closed position, and it engages automatically. When it comes to mounting, this is designed for an adjustable channel mount. It's got that design to it that's going to let you change the coupler's height depending on your application. Your channel bracket and mounting hardware are sold separately. When it comes to the hardware, we want to recommend using part #DM6166.

It's available, right here, at etrailer.com. This is made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a really nice silver powder coated finish. It's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion, looking nice, and lasting for a long time. It's going to feature a 500-hour salt spray radium which is going to make this ideal for marine applications. It's SAE J684 certified.

This is designed for a 3" wide channel bracket. We can tell that by taking a measurement, here, at the backside. You can see that's going to measure right around 2 7/8, so it's going to fit perfectly inside the 3" wide channel bracket. Again, it is designed for a 2 5/16" hitch ball. It's going to offer a weight capacity of 21,000 lbs.

The overall length of our coupler measuring from back to front is going to give us measurement of about 8 1/8" long. You can see the wedge mechanism right there. Open and close the latch, and you can see how that controls the wedge. Another neat thing I want to point out is this unit's going to feature two lockable, or pinhole, locations for a coupler lock. You're going to have your traditional one, right here, on the latch, that would prevent the latch from opening up. If you're interested in a coupler pin and clip, or pin and lock, those are going to be sold separately. They are available, here, at etrailer.com. You're going to have this location, right here, and you're going to have a location, down here, that actually locks the wedge into place. That way nobody could connect it to their hitch ball, and it can't become disconnected when it's connected to your trailer, to your hitch ball. If you want to use this location, right there, these holes are going to have a diameter of 5/16". You're going to need a usable pin length, or span, of 1 1/8" for this location. For this location, you're going to need a usable pin length, or span, of 3". That's going to do it for today's look the Demco trailer coupler for a 2 5/16" hitch ball.

Product itself is GREAT! It came with no manual or instructions or details, or even a factory box. Just cam in plain box with nothing? The second item came in a box that looked like it went through a dozen yard sales and returns. Box was held together with tape. Product inside was very nice shape.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Very good quality, construction, and finish. This was used to replace a 5000# rated coupler on my RV trailer that was just not strong enough. It has an extra 2-3" of length than the old coupler so make sure your safety chains have enough length to accommodate the extra length. One bonus for me was that the extra length was just enough to allow me to open the back door of my SUV with the trailer hitched (which I couldn't do before). The DEMCO coupler does take a 2 1/2" wide hitch pin /lock which is different than most couplers.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I love Demco Couplers, they are so easy to use and so well constructed.
I have been changing the couplers on all of my equipment to Demco.
etrailer is the is by far the best place to get them, along with numerous other items like trailer jacks, lights, hitches, etc.
Great customer service, fast shipping, great prices, what more could you ask?


Comments
Great! Demco Couplers are all I use. I have changed all of my trailers 11 over to Demco couplers from etrailer.com. As I said last year etrailer is my go to supplier for hitches, jacks, light kits, etc.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


My order shipped quickly and showed up in good time. The coupler looks good, but i was disappointed in the gross tongue weight of 10% of total Gross trailer weight. This was not advertised in the details online. I was expecting a 20% tongue weight. If there is another coupler with a 4k/21k rating id appreciate a link.


Comments
I checked and we do not have an adjustable coupler that has a higher TW capacity.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Hitch works great, almost no chance of user error, very positive coupling with min. play on the ball. Zinc plate is thick and uniform. No chance to damage the paw it's very robust.
I did have to drill the lock pin holes with 8mm bit because a 5/16" hasp on the lock was to tight.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Installed this AWESOME hitch on my 20 ft equipment trailer after I upgraded to 8k axles. This hitch is a beast. I love the no touch when hooking up. Just lower the trailer down and it makes a positive lock sound. I welded the hitch to a 1/2 inch thick plate. Welded the plate onto the trailer and used my own gussets instead of the supplied ones. You won’t go wrong with this hitch!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I decided I wanted to renew my Dad's old trailer. Starting with a trailer coupler upgrade to the adjustable "eZ-Latch". Thanks to etrailer it was an easy, convenient one stop shop and I couldn't be more pleased with the products and service. When it comes time to do the running gear and tires, etrailer will be my source.

Thank you!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Replacing a sloppy 21K pintle with this hitch, pintle came with a trailer I bought used so this will be a quiet replacement to pair with my B&W Tri-ball I bought a couple years ago with etrailer.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I don’t really want to write a review, hope someone will really read this.the main reason I ordered a bolt on coupling is so I would not have to weld, but I’m gonna have to even add 2in.to my trailer to make all the holes match. I would have returned it but your return policy says I would have to pay shipping ugg!!. I’m already in for 140.00 bucks now I have to pay and end up with nothing but lost of money for nothing. I’m 74 years old and did not want to weld , that was my only reason for ordering your coupling .the thing had some scratches and marks on it like it had already been a return, don’t think it was done during shipping, although it was put in a fairly large box with flimsy paper packing, so I’m going to have to make it work,even have to weld and everything. Now I’m having to waste time writing all of this , and it’s not going to even make any difference anyway. I think y’all owe me some kind of discount for all my troubles I was trying to avoid anyway, but I’m sure that is not going to happen either. GOD BLESS THOMAS OLIVER

You mentioned that you needed to add 2 inches to your trailer to install the trailer and I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail what you mean. Would you be able to send pictures?

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


When my old coupler failed I was very happy to find a bolt on coupler this heavy as most are weld on for a trailer this heavy. I wish I would have changed the coupler years ago. I always had trouble with the old one. This one is so easy to latch and unlatch from my truck. It is great quality.

  • Locks and Channel Recommendation for Demco Trailer Coupler # DM15791-52
    The Demco Trailer Coupler # DM15791-52 does not come with the locking pins or the mounting pins. The mounting pins will need to be supplied by you. Grade 5 mounting bolts must be used to achieve the 21,000-lb weight capacity and we do not carry them. For the body of the coupler the lock you'd need is # e98888 and for the pin you'd want # e98883. If you select keyed alike on the drop down menu you'll be able to order them both with the same key number. For a channel to use with this you'd...
