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.

I decided I wanted to renew my Dad's old trailer. Starting with a trailer coupler upgrade to the adjustable "eZ-Latch". Thanks to etrailer it was an easy, convenient one stop shop and I couldn't be more pleased with the products and service. When it comes time to do the running gear and tires, etrailer will be my source.

Thank you!




by:

Nice piece, very well made. Its just as advertised and simple to latch the coupler onto the ball. My trailer came with a pintle hitch and I hated the slop, this is tight, quiet and rated for 10K.

Works great! No rust. Complete confidence hauling my towable air compressor. Much nicer than the pintle hitch once connected.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Very good quality, construction, and finish. This was used to replace a 5000# rated coupler on my RV trailer that was just not strong enough. It has an extra 2-3" of length than the old coupler so make sure your safety chains have enough length to accommodate the extra length. One bonus for me was that the extra length was just enough to allow me to open the back door of my SUV with the trailer hitched (which I couldn't do before). The DEMCO coupler does take a 2 1/2" wide hitch pin /lock which is different than most couplers.

The coupler came quickly and fit perfectly. So much better than the original.
I will make sure all my trailer business will go to etrailer.

It continues to perform like it was new. I will never have a trailer without one!

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I don’t really want to write a review, hope someone will really read this.the main reason I ordered a bolt on coupling is so I would not have to weld, but I’m gonna have to even add 2in.to my trailer to make all the holes match. I would have returned it but your return policy says I would have to pay shipping ugg!!. I’m already in for 140.00 bucks now I have to pay and end up with nothing but lost of money for nothing. I’m 74 years old and did not want to weld , that was my only reason for ordering your coupling .the thing had some scratches and marks on it like it had already been a return, don’t think it was done during shipping, although it was put in a fairly large box with flimsy paper packing, so I’m going to have to make it work,even have to weld and everything. Now I’m having to waste time writing all of this , and it’s not going to even make any difference anyway. I think y’all owe me some kind of discount for all my troubles I was trying to avoid anyway, but I’m sure that is not going to happen either. GOD BLESS THOMAS OLIVER

You mentioned that you needed to add 2 inches to your trailer to install the trailer and I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail what you mean. Would you be able to send pictures?

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Very solid hitch. Fast shipping. Fits well except your trailer channels need to nearly come to a point for the first set of holes to have anything to bolt to. Mine did not, so I am having it welded on as well. No paperwork or hardware with this package, but the video will answer most all questions.


Comments
Excellent - it’s stronger than the trailer. Weak point is the plastic lever. If I’m unhitching on an incline it won’t release. I would break it.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


love these couplers ! they are the best and are easy to open up and when they are pulled up you know it is disconnected !! the best !

I was a little disappointed when I opened the box yesterday and found that there was no keeper pin with the couplers now I have to go to town and find the right size ! I was thinking it would come with one ! should have a option to buy the correct one or just send one with !! thanks

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


This is the best hitch on the market! I've changed over all 4 of my trailers to this hitch. Simple hook/unhook, releases off the ball smooth, no pins to mess with. The included steel bracket (product #DM6125-81) is super heavy duty & so is the hitch itself, plenty heavy for any 2 5/16" trailer. I hacked off my existing hitches w a cutoff saw, welded a plate then the bracket and did each of my trailers , w paint, in less than an hour.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I like the 4 bolt system rather than the 2 bolt system because it "mates" the two metal surfaces together better than 2 long bolt design. The way in which its tightened is better. Plus if you have 1 of 4 bolts break you can still safety tow it. If 1 of 2 bolts break you're flirting with disaster. 21k coupler on a 10k trailer. Heavier and better design than my original Made in China coupler.

Review from a similar eZ Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


Installed this AWESOME hitch on my 20 ft equipment trailer after I upgraded to 8k axles. This hitch is a beast. I love the no touch when hooking up. Just lower the trailer down and it makes a positive lock sound. I welded the hitch to a 1/2 inch thick plate. Welded the plate onto the trailer and used my own gussets instead of the supplied ones. You won’t go wrong with this hitch!

  • Recommended Adjustable 2" Ball Coupler To Replace A Lunette Ring On A Trailer
    If you are replacing your current lunette ring, you will need to check on 2 measurements to make sure a coupler will fit your channel. First will be the width and second will be the hole spacing. As an example, the Demco Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount # DM12688-95 will fit a 3" wide channel and will have 2" hole spacing when measured center to center. This is also designed for the use with a 2" ball and will have a 10,000 max capacity. Odds are this will match what you have...

    Unfortunately, we don't offer a surge coupler to designed to slip over a 4 inch trailer tongue. I tried doing a Google search for a Dico model 5 to locate a recommended replacement, and got zero results and didn't get any results for 4 inch wide surge coupler either. I believe your best choice would be a weld on application like # DM8759922 which would weld to the top of the trailer tongue. You'll want to use a professional welder to do this for you.

For a bolt-on trailer coupler with a trigger latch, designed for a 2 inch ball I recommend the Demco Trailer Coupler, Adjustable Channel Mount, # DM12688-95.

If you were looking for a bolt-on channel bracket then the part # DM13867-52 would be what you're looking for which fits 3" wide channel tongues. If you were talking about something else please let me know and I'd be happy to look into it.

  • Can The Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Coupler # DM15349-52 Be Mounted On a Lets Go Aero Trailer?
    I reached out to Lets Go Aero for confirmation that you can even use the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Coupler # DM15349-52 and they said that you will not have any structural issues with having the bolt holes drilled in the sides of your Frame as the Demco will require. Since the holes in the new coupler will not line up centered on your frame rails you will need to pad out the top of the frame 1/2" with some additional steel to center the bolt holes in the tube. You will need the Demco Trailer...

  • Can an A-Frame Coupler be Removed and a Flat Plate or Channel Coupler Installed in its Place
    Your plan could definitely work but what I would do is weld on a channel, such as # DM59601, and using a coupler such as # DM12688-95 for a 2 inch ball or # DM07678-95 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. And of course, some hardware, # PS024202, to mount the coupler to the channel. This type of set up was designed to take off/move the coupler more so than a flat mount. Like you said there is a lot of welding that will need to be done especially to reach the capacity needed. It sounds like you have...

The only other option for that 8,000 lb capacity is a channel mount like the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator - Drum - Zinc - 8" Adjustable Channel Down - 8,000 lbs # DM8759131 which will allow you to use a coupler like the Demco Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel...

  • Recommended Channel Mount Coupler/Brake Controller Installation for Trailer Towed By 2010 Tacoma
    The Demco # DM12688-95 you've looked at would be a good choice. The 2 inch channel mount coupler is compatible with a 3 inch channel, and has bolt spacing of 2 inches on center. Demco is known for high quality products, you'll get years of service out of the coupler. With a 10K capacity it'll be a lot stronger than you really need, but whenever you're talking weight capacities and safety, a little overkill is a good thing.
