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 contoured handle and the coupler socket will automatically release its grip on the ball.

The eZ-Latch's sleek, ergonomically designed handle is constructed of a durable composite material that's corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

Comments
For the Demco # DM13689-95 eZ-Latch coupler, we recommend the # e98887

which would install into the hole that is on the side underneath the top latch.

Fit perfect on my aluminum Triton snowmobile trailer tongue. The top 2 bolt holes were a perfect match for the existing holes on the trailer. I did have to drill the tongue for the third bottom hole, which was easy since it’s aluminum. Hooked up to my truck in the driveway just to see how well it would work and it works awesome! Just lower it in and it clicks into place! Huge upgrade over the Shelby trigger coupler that I could never get adjusted properly.

This thing is great! It couldn’t get any simpler. It’s so easy to use. Since I’m normally coupling/uncoupling by myself, it makes it so much easier.

  • Is One Demco 2 Inch Ball Channel Coupler Safer Than Another
    I am certainly glad you are taking safety into consideration when trying to choose your coupler, although none of the Demco couplers would be considered "safer" than the others you mentioned. Among the three couplers you mentioned: Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM12925, Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler - eZ-Latch - Zinc # DM13689-95 and Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler - eZ-Latch - Silver # DM13689-52, I recommend the latter, which is the silver coupler. The reason...

  • Can Demco Coupler # DM13689-95 Replace # DM12925
    Yes, the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-95 that you referenced can easily replace the # DM12925 you also mentioned. They both fit the same channel dimensions and use the same bolt pattern so it would be a simple swap.

  • Replacement Bolt On Trailer Coupler For Tracker Trailstar Boat Trailer
    I recommend going with a Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-95 on your Tracker Trailstar boat trailer as the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ Pin # BD028244 is designed to be welded on. If it is not welded on as per the manufacturers intended usage you could develop issues with the coupler.

  • Recommendation For Converting Drum Surge Brakes To An Electric Over Hydraulic Drum Set Up
    Since you are going to be using this on a boat trailer, I definitely recommend HydraStar. Their actuators are built of extruded anodized aluminum for corrosion resistance, have weathertight seals protect internal components, and include marine-grade gaskets and stainless steel hardware, so they are designed for use with boat trailers. With that being said, we do not have a plug and play kit available for drum brakes at the moment, but we do have a kit that includes everything you need....

  • Best Air Bag Suspension Enhancement for 2020 Ford F-350 Dually With 4-Wheel Drive
    The best air bag suspension enhancement for your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty dually with 4-wheel drive is definitely the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F88ZR. The Ride-Rite are the best helper springs because they are the strongest, most durable air bags on the market, which means they are going to provide you with the highest level of support for your F-350's suspension. The high-caliber construction of the Firestone air bags is what sets them apart; they are made with four layers...

  • How Do I Get My Boat Trailer To Apply The Brakes When Backing Down A Steep Slope?
    Getting no brakes while reversing will be due to having a surge actuator. As this type of actuator applies the brakes by pressure on the coupler and there will be no forward pressure when you are reversing down a slope, it will not apply the brakes. The only way around this is to convert from a surge type actuator to an electric over hydraulic system. Doing this will require you to remove your current surge actuator and replace it with a standard coupler, like the Demco # DM13689-95. This...

  • Recommended 10,000 lb Capacity Ball Mount and 2 Inch Hitch Ball With 7 Drop
    There is a ball mount that has a 2" hitch ball and the 7" of drop you are looking for. Since you have a 10,000 lb capacity Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-95, in order to match the weight capacity and get the 7" of drop you need, you will need an adjustable ball mount: - B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10040B (Black) or # BWTS10040C (Chrome) The Tow & Stow has a 2" and also a 2-5/16" ball, a 10,000 lb towing capacity, and up to 7" of drop so it matches everything you...
