The bulldog hitch works great. Just wish I had them on all my trailers. Great built coupler.

Beefy hitch, lot of area to weld to. These are old school design, been around for years. My welding shop said go Bulldog or stay on the porch. Using it to add 7" to my TH trailer toung so I can mount generator box and have turning clearance. Lock the collar down and no need to worry about it. All our oil field company's use them. Price was great, shipping fast.

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler



  • Long Trailer Coupler Recommendation for a Trailer with 3 inch Channel Frame
    The biggest frame channel we offer couplers for is 3 inch. What I would recommend is the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler # BD028462 as this coupler is pretty long and would add some length to the tongue of your trailer. The overall length of this coupler is 16-1/2 inches. See review video that I attached.

  • Bulldog Collar Lok Coupler that Can Fit Boat Trailer
    The Bulldog Collar Lok style couplers are very reliable and a solid choice like you mentioned. For the pole tongue of a boat trailer you'd want the part # BD028462 which fits a 3 inch wide tongue. If you have something different though let me know and I'll see what would be best option.

  • Replacing The Moveable Parts Of A Collar-Lok Coupler With High Profile Latch
    I'm not sure what part you are referring to as the movable half. If you are talking about the sleeve and spring loaded clamp that fit around the hitch ball, you will need to replace the coupler. For a 2 inch ball, you will need something like the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch - 2" Ball - 3" Channel Tongue - 5,000 lbs, # BD028382 or for the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball something like the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch - 2-5/16" Ball - 3" Tongue - 12,500 lbs,...

  • Will the Bulldog High-Profile Coupler Latch Repair Kit Work on a Bulldog 2B Hammerblow Coupler
    There are several different styles of Bulldog 2B coupler latches. If your coupler has the high profile latch like the one on our Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch, item # BD028462, the Bulldog High-Profile Latch Repair Kit, item # BD024200, will be the correct replacement. The other latch styles can be seen on the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ Pin, item # BD028244, which utilizes a pin to secure the coupler to the trailer ball and the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ Low-Profile...

  • Coupler that's Easier to Lock than Bulldog Collar-Lok
    You are correct, all someone would need to do is cut the metal rods you pointed out to be able to slide the sleeve back of the coupler. Because of that you might be more interested in a Demco Coupler # DM13203-95 which uses a much more concealed latch and lock mechanism that wouldn't be as easy to defeat. For a pin lock for the Demco the part # e98888 would work really well too.

  • Weight Capacity Of Trailer Coupler On New Flat-Bed Tandem Trailer
    I have attached a helpful article that explains trailer hitch balls and their capacities. As the article states, 2 inch balls are typically rated with a towing capacity between 3,500 lbs to 8,000 lbs. A 2-5/16 inch ball is normally rated to be able to handle loads between 6,000 and 30,000 lbs. I recommend returning to the dealer that sold you the trailer for a clarification. If you can see the rating on the coupler reads it is rated for 7,000 lbs, that would be for the towing capacity...
