Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - BD028243

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler with the pin, for a three-inch wide trailer tongue, and a two-inch hitch ball. Has a 7,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a heavy duty coupler. It's ideal for utility, livestock, cargo, and construction trailers. It is a Weldon application.

And as we mentioned, it's a tongue mount design, so it is designed to fit onto three-inch square or rectangular trailer tongues. It is a high strength steel, which is very durable. And we mentioned it is a Collar-Lok design. You can see the collar right here. It offers an automatic continuously tight fit for absolute security.

Uses a hinged ball socket right here that makes hook-up a snap to a two-inch diameter ball. Basically, what you'll do is has this pin style fastener, keeps the collar locked over the ball. When you unhook this pin, slide the pin out, it'll allow you to slide this collar back this way. And then this hinged ball socket will open up and allow it to fit over a two-inch diameter hitch ball. Close that back down over the ball, slide your collar up, slide the pin in place.

It'll keep it secured. Does give you a visual indication of proper closure. Provides additional peace of mind. A few specs on this, we mentioned the capacity is 7,000 pounds. Overall length from this end all the way to that tip is gonna be right at 16 and three quarter inches long.

But that should do it for the review on this Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler with the pin for three-inch wide trailer tongue, and a two-inch diameter hitch ball.

Heavy duty, clean - no bulk to deal with and can step on the tongue easily to climb up, etc. Perfect for up to 7K# trailer. When it is latched, it is latched and in the truck and away you go! Great Bulldog product.

@SamuelB Glad to hear you're happy with it overall. Keep it lubricated, and it should be easier to open and close...

Fast delivery

Great Product. I have owned it for almost a year. no problems and solid as a rock



by:

Asboutley the best!



by:

very reasonably priced and delivered in a timely manner



by:

Used it on a gravity wagon we haul cow feed from the feed mill. Welded right up to the trailer tongue and makes the trailer pull better than the old pin hitch.



by:

Ordering was easy, delivery was quick. The coupler I ordered was the one I received. The quality of this coupler is made to last!

Just like new! Its excellent quality!



by:

Fast two day delivery and for the best of all shipping charge…FREE! The bulldog coupler works perfectly and look beautiful after welding, cleanup, priming and painting black to match my trailer. And the bulldog mechanism looks solid as a rock and idiot-proof (impossible to hitch wrong) when hitching up to the 2” ball. I just returned from having it welded to the trailer tongue after ditching the cheapie $xx trigger coupler (it came with the trailer) that was an accident waiting to happen. I look forward to many years of flawless performance.



by:

My hitch arrived exactly on the date they said it would and it looks like a quality hitch



by:

product received as described. works perfect for our application. fast shipping and excellent communication on order status. was a pleasure doing business with etrailer.com. would definitely recommend to others.



by:

I was very pleased with the first experience I had making our first purchase from etrailer. The customer service was extremely efficient and professional.



by:

lots of heavy metal...should wear well...fast service and help..and received in record time... no gripes happy camper already welded and in service....

seems strange that is weld on only...seems that it could be engineered so it could be bolted or welded or both..



by:

The coupler is designed to latch easily and securely. It is also made with metal that is thick enough to take a beating from pulling a trailer with no springs on bumpy roads.



by:

As advertised, great company to work with. Recommend them for anything trailer.



by:

Fit perfectly on a 3" x 3" square tubing. You need to drill out the pin hole due to over abundance of paint.



by:

So far no issues,I’m able to go down the rough roads with confidence .i brag about this site all the time.



by:

Solid product, easy to use. Fairly quick install



by:

Good quality



by:

Products arrived fast and fit as expected. No Surprises. Order more parts today

  • Will Bulldog Collar-Lok Trailer Coupler # BD028243 Fit a 3 Inch Wide Tongue
    The Bulldog Collar-Lok coupler # BD028243 is designed to fit around a 3 inch wide tongue so it is slightly larger than 3 inches on the inside. Since you have a 3 inch wide tongue this coupler will fit. I have included a link to a video review for you. Drilling holes to bolt on the coupler can void the warranty so it is up to you if you want to do that. Otherwise I have included a link to all of the bolt-on straight tongue couplers we have that fit a 3 inch wide tongue and couple to a 2...

  • Availability of a Straight-Tongue Bolt-On Trailer Coupler
    The Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler, # BD028243, is designed for weld-on applications and should not be bolted on because it was not designed to be installed this way. Doing so will void the warranty and can even compromise the structural integrity of the coupler. I have included a link to all of the straight-tongue bolt-on couplers that we carry.
