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 also constructed of a durable composite material that's corrosion-proof, allowing it to withstand whatever the road and the elements dish out.

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


Comments
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?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/05/2022


by:

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.
Matt - 04/09/2022


by:

My old coupler was pretty used up and rated at only 5000 lbs for a 10,000 lb trailer so it had to go.
The new bolt-on 10,000 lb coupler is quality. I like the EZ latch because its smooth, self latching and easy. The job was about four hours including removing old coupler, welding some new channel in and drilling holes. New coupler looks good, works great, and trailer is safer.




by:

this was an effective solution to a bent trailer coupler and twisted frame. i did add
welds and a piece of channel to the frame before i bolted it down. 4 stars because i had to hunt around for a lock long enough to go thru the hole in the
front. definitely recommend if you have a difficult repair on a trailer coupler.




by:

My coupler arrived very fast! Condition is perfect and quality of "etrailer" product is heavy duty.




by:

Just received the Trailer Coupler. Is very nice!! Heavy Duty! I placed it over the old coupler and it looks like it will work very well. I know what I'll be doing this weekend.


Comments
The trailer coupler has worked out perfectly. Handles everything that I haul.
Matthew D - 05/22/2021


by:

Coupler mechanism is finicky, you have to shake the trailer tongue to get it to lock. The pin hole is too small in diameter to accept a lock so you have to use a ball lock to lock the trailer. Also it’s plastic so if it sticks you have to be careful tapping on it. I wouldn’t by again and if it breaks I’ll go back to normal coupler.


Comments
The coupler mechanism is adjustable. Use the adjustment bolt on the underside of the latching mechanism to adjust until the coupler will self-latch when set atop the trailer ball.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 03/28/2018


by:

When my old coupler failed I was very happy to find a bolt on coupler this heavy as most are weld on for a trailer this heavy. I wish I would have changed the coupler years ago. I always had trouble with the old one. This one is so easy to latch and unlatch from my truck. It is great quality.




by:

Worked great . Easy install . Saved the trailer




by:

Hitch works great the only thing holding me back from a five star rating is the plastic latch handle. The latch handle flex's a lot and feels like it would break if pulled hard. I have figured out that if you start to jack the trailer up and then it releases easily. I will defiantly buy this hitch again.




by:

I just received the coupler yesterday and it is very heavy duty and has a great finish on it. Customer service was incredible. They even expedited shipping even though I didn't ask or pay for it. Thanks etrailer!!


Comments
Fantastic. Good solid hitch. Great company to deal with. They care about their customers.
Lou Z - 09/26/2018


by:

Easy to install and like the easy latch. Have another trailer that came with this tongue on it, so when it came time to upgrade an older trailer, I chose this one. Very pleased




by:

Trailer coupling will not fit correctly on a 2" Ball...to tight and is always difficult to get on and off.


Comments
We have contacted the manufacturer and they suggest pulling forward so that trailer is not pushing against the truck. If the ball is being pushed into the latch mechanism if will be hard to unlatch. Pull forward before unhooking it on a level surface.

Product is exactly as advertised. Easy installation, easy to use. No regrets.

Great product




by:

Although I was unhappy with the shipping time. I’m incredibly happy with the products. It works perfectly on my pop up camper.




by:

Perfect fit, exactly what I was looking for. Great and fast shipping. Keep up the excellent work strainer.




by:

I needed a universal type a-frame coupler and this met all my expectations. Shipped fast. Price was a little expensive. Quality of product is very good. Happy that it just needs to be bolted on and not welded on. Ez latch seems perfect to have.




by:

Good solid hitch, exactly as represented. Shipped promptly. Once I get the remnants of the old hitch cleaned off, it will be an easy, secure install.


Comments
It is working perfectly. Thanks for checking.

This coupler looks great!
Had a problem with receiving this package originally in which the item was lost on delivery, but etrailer sent me a new item and received it very quickly. Very satisfied with this purchase




by:

Easy install and very well built




by:

It was easy to install great for bldg trailer from scratch or replacing trailer hitch couper.




by:

Product arrived as promised and packed very well. It was exactly as the website advertised it to be. I could not be more happy with ETRAILER buying experience. I will definitely go back to them for all my trailer accessory needs!




by:

I thought your product was excellent. Even though I will have to make some changes on my trailer tongue, I am still happy with this coupler. You have to have something to work with and this item got everything going in right direction.

  • Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM14793-81 Will Not Couple/Uncouple 2 inch Hitch Ball
    The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM14793-81 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for a hitch ball with a 2 inch diameter. To couple or uncouple your trailer you will simply lift the eZ-Latch in the upward position. If you were having difficulty coupling or uncoupling your trailer so much that it ruined your hitch ball you may want to make sure that you had the eZ-Latch in the upwards position and that you do not have a 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball that you are using.

  • Replacing Weld-On Coupler with Bolt-On Coupler on Older Winnebago Travel Trailer
    We have a large selection of A-Frame couplers like what would be on your older Winnebago travel trailer. You can certainly remove your weld-on coupler and replace it with a bolt-on unit, as long as the new coupler's capacity is correct for your trailer and it is the proper size for fitment. I just recommend sanding and painting the tongue after removal. Also just keep in mind that you will need to drill some holes into the tongue so that you can install a bolt-on coupler to replace it.

  • Recommended Bolt-On Coupler for R-Pod Camper
    The Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 referenced in your question should work just fine as a replacement on your R-Pod Camper. As you mentioned, the coupler has a bolt-on installation and a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. It is compatible with a 2 inch hitch ball and also features a cutout for a 2-1/4 inch round jack. There should be no issue with replacing the weld-on unit with this bolt-on coupler, but to be sure you might also check with the camper manufacturer just to make...

If your safety chains are welded to the underside of your trailer frame then this coupler will be compatible because it covers the top and sides of the frame.

  • Trailer Coupler Does Not Fit Securely Around Hitch Ball
    It sounds like you need to replace your trailer coupler as there should not be excessive up and down or side to side play on the hitch ball. If you do have too much play or the latching mechanism is not functioning properly like you said then you are at risk of the trailer coupler becoming detached from the hitch ball which I am sure I do not have to tell you is very bad. The loose fit around the hitch ball is a tell-tale sign the coupler needs to be replaced. In order to replace the...

  • Solution for Attach Coupler to A-Frame that Would Need to Be Extended 1977 Apache Roamer
    Only solution will be to extend out the frame rails of your trailer so that you can install a standard coupler on to them. 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 require...

    There will be no trailer coupler latch repair kit for an Atwood Trailer Coupler 88555 which is discontinued. Unfortunately, the only option is a full replacement for which I recommend the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # DM14793-81. This coupler can be bolted-on once you cut the old one off and it doesn't require the handle to be open while coupling.

  • What Size Bolts Should Be Used To Install The Demco DM14793-81 Coupler?
    The mounting holes on the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-81 are all going to be 1/2", so you will want to use grade 5 or higher 1/2" bolts. The length will depend on the thickness of the frame you are attaching this to and the torque spec will depend on the bolt you end up going with. I know this is a fairly vague answer, but there can be a lot of variables with torque specs depending on the bolt. These rating should be listed on the bolts you end up going with though.

  • Is It Safe to Switch Trailer Hitch Ball Size to Fit Damaged Coupler
    I'm sorry to hear about the damage that occurred to your trailer, but it is not safe to change out the size of the hitch ball to accommodate a damaged coupler, which, from your description, is what it sounds like you have. That is especially true considering you say you have a "very heavy duty" trailer, because smaller 1-7/8" hitch balls have lesser, under-5k capacities. The best option is going to be to replace your damaged coupler with a new one that will allow you to properly - and...

For the ball and ball mount we have the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches # 989900. This kit is nice because it comes with a 2", 2 5/16", and 2 ball mounts.
