Perfect fit, great product couldn't be happier.
Needed
to replace the ball coupler on my flat deck due to a "friend" that borrowed it and lost the key to the latch lock. They decided taking a hammer to the latch was the answer. Had spare keys hanging in my garage...

Great product and couldnt be happier



by:

Best price and a perfect fit for my trailer. Item included the attaching bolts and flat washers. I just added lock washers to the 5/8" bolts and a 1/4" hitch clip to lock the coupler onto the truck.



by:

User for a year so far. Utilized on an offroad
Camp trailer, custom built. No issues, strong product. Great range of height adjustment for use on my different vehicles. When it comes time to sell the trailer, It should increase the number of potential buyers due to the versatility in vehicle stance.



by:

Easy switch from pintle. Can't wait to haul with it.



by:

Perfect fit, definitely a quality product.



by:

Fantastic company! Will recomend to everyone I know! Every thing I ordered was just as advertised and the shipping was free and fast. Less than 1 week and I had my package! Included in the package was all 3 things I ordered.
A 2007 Chevrolet Express heavy duty receiver, a tongue for my trailer and a trailer wiring harnes that just attatched to my Epress's oem tail lights inside the vans inner panels! All 3 things were super easy to install with directions and all 3 things work super well!



by:

Prompt delivery of this quality, heavy duty (rated at 14,000 lbs.) hitch. Installed it on the day I received it and bolt holes were precisely machined. An added bonus was that new, grade 8 (non-metric, USS, 15/16") bolts, nuts, and flat washers included. Nice adjust-ability to make the load ride level. Fantastic price= $50.00 with shipping/tax.
Plus, a 'follow up' from the company to make sure the entire transaction was satisfactory....thanks etrailer! Quality customer service goes a long way with me!

i have not had the chance to put my trailer coupler to use yet ,but it seems to be very well built and will make the trailer useful to my sons(it will be replacing a pintle coupler on my trailer. thanks for the great product.

easy replacement,works great. thanks



by:

These work great for our toilet trailers. Last year when COVID landed and started the supply chain disruption etrailer had these in stock and sent them out. So far the performance has been good. The only think I could knock it for is the nuts get stuck in a 15/16 socket during installation but not sure what that's all about. Bottom Line I still use this product on our trailers, so yes I would recommend to a friend.



by:

The hitch worked great and plenty strong so far. The only problem was the first 10 trips or so when disconnecting trailer the thumb latch release would get jammed and required prying it loose w a crow bar...but since its releasing easier now. Great it had all necessary hardware too. Good product.



by:

Excellent service. Upgraded shipping for no extra charge. The right part the first time. Can't ask for much more. Thank you



by:

My order included this CTA-400 coupler and CTA-CB4 adjustable channel bracket. Both items are precisely what I need to replace the old a-frame type coupler on my trailer with a adjustable heavy-duty replacement. Communication with the seller was excellent. No surprises. George J even packaged and shipped my items after hours and had it to me before the weekend!!! BIG thanks to etrailer.com and George J. *****FIVE STARS*****



by:

Replaced old, unreliable hitch on my 17 foot dovetail trailer with this one. Can honestly say it’s the easiest hooking trailer I now have. Would highly recommend.



by:

Trailer came with a pintle ring, it has finally shown enough wear to need replacing, opted for the 25/16 coupler to eliminate the slop I'm the ring
Love the ball coupler.



by:

Nice product. Bolts could be a little shorter had to find some washers to take up the extra space.

Still working great.



by:

Its a little difficult to get the latch set right on the ball but other than that it works great



by:

was very easy to take the old one and replace with a new/ just two bolts and what a difference . takes a 1/4" safety pin i replaced also a real home run again thanks etrailer



by:

Just what we needed to change the hitch coupler on our air compressor trailer. Delivered super fast in less than a day.



by:

Good product. Good service. Replaced a pintle hitch with the ball hitch.



by:

Much better than drop hitches on the truck. Can be swapped out for a pointless eye.



by:

High quality adjustable hitch at reasonable price from great company.



by:

Great communications, quick shipping, and a perfect fit! Reached out after initial order to check sizes and they worked with me to ensure I got what I needed. I wish I had another trailer to restore!



by:

Fit perfectly! Will work great for my car trailer



by:

It has been working pretty good for a year now

Great price, great trailer coupler

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a CronKhite Equipment Trailer
    We can start by getting your the coupler you need. I recommend the Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount - Thumb Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - 14,000 lbs # CTA-400. This coupler will work well with a weight distribution system. Then I recommend the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 12K GTW, 1.2K TW # RP66560 which is compatible with the surge brake actuator. You will need to bolt the brackets directly to your trailer frame if the brackets...

  • Does etrailer Coupler # CTA-400 Have Adjustable Latch
    Hey Claude, the latch mechanism of the etrailer coupler part # CTA-400 is not adjustable but it's not like lighter duty couplers that are going to get loose over time to the point the coupler could let go of the ball.

  • Recommended Coupler for Channel Mount for 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball
    The specific ball size trailer couplers like the etrailer # CTA-400, the Pro Series # PSA256S0303 has a latch that is not adjustable and specific to the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. It sounds like you are looking for the multi-ball adjustable coupler, and there is not that style of latch available in the channel mounted options we carry.

  • What is the Torque Spec for the Bolts that Come with 2-5/16 Inch Channel Coupler # CTA-400
    The bolts for channel mount coupler # CTA-400 have the markings for grade 8 bolts. They are 5/8 inch coarse threaded bolts so the minimum torque value is 159 and the max is 212 (foot pounds). Once torqued down the force will cause the metal of the channel to flex inward some.

  • What is the Mounting Hole Diameter for etrailer Adjustable Channel Mount Coupler CTA-400
    I went out to the warehouse to measure the mounting holes on trailer coupler # CTA-400. They measure 0.66 inches in diameter. This coupler does come with the mounting hardware as well. I have included a link to a video review of this coupler for you.

  • Replacement Hardware for Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount
    The hardware is pretty much standard for 3" channel coupler mounts like the Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount part # CTA-400 so we have plenty of kits with new hardware like the Curt Channel-Mount Coupler Hardware Kit part # C25388.

  • Are Bolts Necessary to Mount Adjustable Channel Trailer Coupler
    While I completely understand it can be a bit of a pain and more time-consuming than you'd like, I have to recommend you only use the included bolts that come with an adjustable channel trailer coupler such as # CTA-400. Using these bolts (which are grade 8 bolts) ensure the coupler maintains its capacity and stability for the safest towing set up. I know it's not the answer you were looking for but the only option to help prevent theft is to add a lock to the latch, the Master Lock Adjustable...

  • Recommended Adjustable Channel for A-Frame Trailer
    The Demco 6-Hole Adjustable Channel Bracket - Weld On - 12" Tall - 21,000 lbs # DM66134 is the weld on option for your trailer. There isn't a complete kit we offer, but it sounds like you are seeking the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Coupler without Jack Hole - Channel Mount # DM15349-52. You can then use a coupler like # CTA-400. If you want the support jack plate use # DL22763.

  • Torque Figure for Installing Adjustable Channel Mount Trailer Coupler CTA-400
    The bolts for channel mount coupler # CTA-400 have the markings for grade 8 bolts. They are 5/8 inch coarse threaded bolts so the minimum torque value is 159 and the max is 212 (foot pounds). Once torqued down the force will cause the metal of the channel to flex inward some. That said there isn't a minimum clearance figure needed for between the mount and the channel. As long as you have the proper torque rating you'd be good.

  • Size of Replacement Bolt for etrailer Trailer Coupler
    The etrailer Trailer Coupler # CTA-400 uses the Replacement Mounting Bolt with Nut for Adjustable Channel Couplers # MBT58500-LN58. This is a 5/8" grade 8 bolt. I have attached a diagram below which shows the full dimensions.

  • Distance Between Mounting Holes of Trailer Coupler CTA-400
    You are on the money because the distance between the mounting holes of Trailer Coupler # CTA-400 is 2 inches on center, like you mentioned. You are also correct that this is a standard distance and will allow you to use a number of different adjustable channels, depending on the adjustment you need. The most common channel brackets for this coupler are the Ram 3-Position Adjustable Channel Bracket for Couplers - 6" Height Adjustment # CTA-CB4 or 8" Height Adjustment # CTA-CB6. The coupler...
