Expert Answers about A-Frame Trailer Coupler


  • Demco 2" A-Frame Couplers Dimensions Requirements
  • That is correct the inner dimension of the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler item # DM14793-95 is 10 3/4 inches. I have attached a picture that breaks down the measurements. You would need to fabricate a spacer on either side to attach this coupler to your trailer. The Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch item # BD43805W0317 is a weld on coupler that has a 10 1/4 inch inner measurement. I have attached a picture of it also.

  • Yes, you will be able to remove the master cylinder from the Titan Brake Actuator - Painted - Drum - 2-5/16" Ball - Weld On - 12,500 lbs, part # T1607500. This is a direct replacement, so you will not need a reducer. The master cylinder you need is for a drum brake actuator.

  • Recommendations For Allowing Trailer Jack To Be Able To Swing Up Without Hitting Ground
  • I would be happy to help! There is a few options to get the increased clearance you need to raise your trailer so you can stow away your jack when not in use. I recommend replacing the coupler with a standard a-frame coupler you would still be able to get the coupler off the hitch without hitting the spare tire as it would be the same height. With an A-Frame coupler like the # DM14791-97 installed this would raise the trailer a few inches so you could keep using your jack, or it...

  • Trailer Jack and Coupler Recommendation for Featherlite Bumper Pull Trailer
  • The Bulldog coupler part # BD44150WH301 is a really great choice for your Featherlite trailer. It'll be very reliable and easy to use so you'll really like it. Then for an a-frame jack we have the zinc coated Bulldog A-Frame Round Jack # BD1700100301 which has a 5,000 lb capacity. Like I mentioned this has the zinc coating you are wanting which will fight corrosion and has more capacity than you'll need which means it will raise and lower easily. Trailer jacks are rated for their lifting...

  • Can Demco Trailer Coupler # DM37ZR be Welded On
  • Yes, if you wanted to weld on the Demco coupler part # DM37ZR instead of bolting it on you certainly could. This is powdercoated though so you will need to remove the powdercoating first. For a similar coupler that was designed to be welded on and instead is just primed we have the part # DM14791-97 which has a 10k capacity, the same latch design, and fits a 2 inch hitch ball.

  • Parts Needed to Convert to 3,500 lb Over-The-Hub Disc Brakes
  • Thanks for the photos, and based on them we do have what you need, which are over-the-hub disc brakes. The only thing you will need to verify is that you have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern on your hub; it looks like you do but you'll want to be sure by measuring from the center of your hub's wheel stud hole to the farthest edge of the opposite stud. If that measures 4-1/2 inches you have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. I have also added a link below to a printable bolt hole template. Assuming...

  • A-Frame Coupler That Accepts 2 Inch Hitch Ball
  • Thanks for the photos, and I can confirm that you do have an A-frame style of coupler. We do not have a latch repair kit by that manufacturer for an A-frame coupler for a 2 inch hitch ball, so the best we can offer is a new A-frame coupler. There are both bolt-on and weld-on options available. - Bolt-On: Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler with Jack Hole - eZ-Latch # DM14793-81 - Weld-On: A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Yoke Latch # CA-5210-B I have added links below to some video reviews...

Instead I recommend going ahead and replacing the entire coupler with the Fulton 50-Degree A-Frame Coupler, 2-5/16" Ball, Low-Profile Latch, Primed Finish - 10,000 lbs # FE443050303 which has the same 10,000lb rating as your trailer.

For a Jack there are several options based on how much weight you are needing to lift and also if you are wanting manual or electric.

This jack is rated for a lift capacity of 3,500lbs and has programable memory, so that you will be able to...

  • Recommended A-Frame Coupler To Replace A Ram A-Frame Coupler With A Sloppy Fit
  • The A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5210-B will have the exact same yoke latch as your current Ram coupler, so it will not be adjustable, unfortunately. With that said, if you were over doing the weight capacity and can swing the Dutton Lainson A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DL14008 with 5,000 pounds of capacity, it will have the adjustability you are looking for. If you do need more capacity than that though, your best option will be the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14791-97. This is actually...

  • Replacement A-Frame Trailer Coupler For 1978 Airstream With 50 Degree A-Frame

You can verify this to ensure that the etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5280-RB will fit correctly on your Airstream. I personally prefer the auto latching style couplers like the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler # 12660-97SP. This coupler for me is cleaner and works simpler with the latching system. The connection for the jack has nuts welded on to the bottom of the plate making...

  • Solution for Older Atwood Surge Actuator with Bad Shock
  • Atwood is no longer making actuators at this time so there are no replacement shocks for their actuators anymore. Especially for ones as old as yours. So what you'd need to do is replace the surge actuator with a similar A-frame actuator like the part # DM8609502 which fits a 2 inch ball and is designed for drum brakes. There isn't a similar shock available we can recommend either.

  • Why Are The Sides Of The A-Frame Trailer Coupler Angled Out Slightly?
  • Most square frame tubing will actually have a swelling in the steel that causes the frame to not be an exact rectangle. This is why you will see a bit of an angle on the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler # BD028386. I suggest using a large clamp to pull the steel as close together as possible. Be careful that the clap does not distort the inside wall of the steel tubing as this will weaken the steel and possibly cause the angle to increase. The heat from the welding process will help to pull...

These will all pair perfectly with any of the vehicle side Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitchs like part # 336VS501.

We do have the Marlboro Replacement Brass Grease Zerk - 6 mm x 1.00 STD # MA35ZR that can technically be used, but it is a standard fitting and not a low profile.

  • Replacement Coupler For Discontinued Atwood 2" Yoke Coupler

This will get you all new latch components that feature an EZ latch system. The coupler comes primed to protect against rust until you are able to have it welded on in place of the old coupler.

  • What Hardware Is Required To Install The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # 14793?
  • The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-97 will require six 1/2" grade 5 bolts with correct washers and nuts to ensure a secure installation. The length of the bolt will be determined by the size of the frame rail that you are mounting to. I have included a video linked below for a similar coupler being installed that will help you through the installation process. These bolts and the rest of the hardware needed can be purchased at a local hardware store.

  • Troubleshooting Coupler that is Difficult to Latch onto Hitch Ball
  • The latching mechanisms of couplers can pretty easily get corroded or dirty to the point they become difficult to operate. Best bet is to spray down the mechanism liberally with a spray lube like WD40 and see if that frees up the latch to allow it to install easier. A lot of couplers have adjustable latches as well. If you look under the coupler and see a nut maybe try loosening it a bit so that it could come down and latch onto the ball a bit easier. In the picture I attached of the...

  • Could Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 be Bolted to a Trailer Frame
  • The Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 is listed as a weld-on application because it doesn't have bolt holes and was left unfinished to make the welding job easier. If you were willing to drill holes in the coupler you certainly could bolt it to your trailer. I'd recommend painting it to help fight corrosion. I attached a page that has all of the ball mount solutions that go with this for you to check out. Main difference between them is the amount of drop they all have.

  • Is a Bulldog Collar Harder to Latch Than a Wedge A-Frame Trailer Coupler
  • In regards to the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch part # BD028463, you will indeed need to be more centered over the hitch ball in order to couple in comparison to the Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch part # BD44125W0317 which will more or less center itself with enough pressure. For that reason, I do prefer the trigger/wedge style.

The difference between the two is in the latching mechanism.

None of the options out there are going to be large enough to fit your frame channels that basically start too far apart. What I'd do (if you can) is go with the Demco coupler # DM14793-81 that you referenced and have a fabricator come out and have him decide the best way to extend out your frame to install this. This is one of the larger couplers so it wouldn't...

  • Does Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler Bolt On
  • The Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch - Primed - 2-5/16" Ball - 21K # 12660-97SP does not have any bolt information, with the reason being that this is a weld-on application and cannot be bolted on. I did cut out the relevant aspects of the weld-on info that is from the manual. I also added a link to a video review of the weld-on Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler # 12660-97SP.

  • Why Doesn't Demco Coupler Have Safety Chain Loops
  • There aren't any safety chain loops on the Demco coupler part # DM13205-95 that you referenced because you want to attach the chains to the trailer frame and not to the coupler itself incase for some reason the coupler was to come off at the welds. For safety chain loops that you could weld to your trailer frame we have the part # E950.

  • Coupler Lock Recommendation for a Bulldog A-Frame Coupler 44150WH301
  • The best lock recommendation we'd have for your Bulldog Coupler part # BD44150WH301 would be the Fastway Lock part # DT25013KA. Although this is a universal style coupler lock it's design allows it to fit basically all coupler styles well enough to be a very effective coupler lock. I attached a review video for this lock for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Lock for Bulldog BD028499 Collar-Lok Trailer Coupler
  • The Bulldog # BD028499 Collar-Lok coupler is about 2-3/4 inches wide at the point of the coupler where the locking pin is located, so the # e98887 lock you'd looked at wouldn't have a long enough span to work for you. I'd recommend the same lock with a longer span, part # e98888 which would fit just fine. For a more secure lock that's specifically designed to work with a coupler like this, I'd go with the Blalock # BLTL-20-40D which would be harder to defeat and would provide a higher...

  • Can Bulldog Collar -Lok Couplers be Locked While Towing the Trailer
  • Towing coupler locks, as they are called, are not as common as they used to be. We have numerous coupler locks but none that will work with coupler # BD028386 while the trailer is being towed. What you could do is use a latch lock such as # e98888 so that the latch cannot be opened and thus the trailer cannot be uncoupled from the ball.

  • Does 5000 lb Trailer Coupler Have to be Replaced with Coupler with Same Capacity
  • Depends on the weight of the trailer. If the trailer will never weigh more than 5,000 lbs then you wouldn't necessarily have to go with a 5k rated coupler like the Demco part # DM14793-52 that you referenced. 5,000 lb couplers are very popular, so if you were just wanting something priced a little better the part # CA-5100-Z would work great too.
