Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Brake Actuator - Latch Assembly Repair Kit -T4045400

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff from etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this latch repair kit for the Dexter multi-fit couplers and brake actuators. Now this kit here will let you repair a damaged hitch ball latch assembly on your coupler or actuator. This part will work with the Dexter multi-fit couplers and trailer brake actuators and it will also fit the Dico and Demco Model 60 hydraulic actuators. These parts are a cast construction with a nice zinc finish.

The kit will include everything laid out here on the table. It'll include the hand wheel, the hand wheel lock, the ball latch, the ball latch spring, bracket retainer, a hex bolt, the hex screw, and then the two hex nuts. Now the size on the hex bolt is three and a half inches long, which is measured from under the head to the end of the bolt. So if we put a ruler on that, there's your three and a half inch measurement. The diameter is a half inch diameter and on the screw it is two and five-eighths inches long and a seven-16th's diameter.

But that should do it for the review on the latch repair kit for the Dexter multi-fit couplers and brake actuators.

This product is exactly what I needed to replace the worn and rusted latch mechanism on our trailer. The self locking nut makes a nice replacement for the cutter pin and nut previously used.



by:

Hello.

Item as described. Timely
shipping across the states. Well packaged. Works really great now on the tow dolly. Other part was all rusted up. With these replacement parts fixed it up now.

Thank You.

Randy Adversalo



by:

I was very happy with the part, but what I found more beneficial was the video to assemble this.
The video was in the description.
Thank for the fast service, quality parts, and very helpful video instructions.



by:

This didn't come with the hog ring to keep the know from spinning all the way off and Threaded bolt for knob wasn't drilled for hog ring. I Had to reuse my original bolt and put a cotter pin in it.

I reached out to Dexter about the experience with the kit and they advised that the hog ring is included with the kit as well as that the bolt should be long enough. They are sending the parts to me and once I have them, I can have them sent to you.



by:

the latch kit came for the second time missing the same two parts the half threaded bolt with predrilled hole and the hog ring

We definitely need to get to the bottom of this for you. I will have our Customer Service team reach out.



by:

Installation was smooth and simple. A couple parts were incorrect but worked, however the eTrailer team promptly sent a replacement. Best online customer service I've ever experienced--will be using eTrailer exclusively moving forward



by:

product arrived very quickly and was in good shape. have not put it on trailer yet, but should be very easy to install. it's just what I needed to repair the coupler on pontoon trailer. thank you

working out great, very easy install and totally fixed my problem with my trailer..



by:

Thank you very much for covering my order in a timely manner. I have purchased for years from your company. Very great to deal with.



by:

Great parts 1st time around
Great service
Shipped
promptly



by:

Didn’t get parts described online and in the video. Came with a way to long bolt & nut. Not the correct bolt with hole for the hog ring. All I really needed was the tongue part so went ahead and used but disappointing I paid for a complete replacement & didn’t get it.



by:

Fast shipping, just as described.



by:

Package showed up when they said it would, and it had all the parts in it. I would recommend this company, and will use them again for trailer parts.



by:

The hitch replacement parts saved me from having to change my hitch setup. An rv store in Montana was not aware of you when they for us. They should. You are a great source for older trailers like our 1960 Airstream. Got the parts quickly and were exactly as ordered.



by:

Great It saved me. I couldn't find the parts any where. I searched for 2 days on the web then a neighbor told me to check with you. You had the parts with a little looking. Didn't have to weld in a new hitch. Thanks



by:

Shipped immediately with tracking. Priced fairly. Video instructions for installation. What's not to love!



by:

Product worked as described. I used this item on a dico model 60 hitch coupler. Instead of the c clip I used a cotter pin.



by:

Works great! Must have to replace the old rusty parts for some smooth operation. Critical for this style ball hitch.



by:

Still working great after a year of using the latch repair kit. Easy to install just a few minutes to repair.



by:

This was a perfect fit, replacement for my damaged ball latch. I could not find it locally.



by:

I have gotten two of these and they do not come with the correct bolt. The bolt in both kits was fully threaded and that causes latch to catch and not work well



by:

More then I needed...everything I needed & great customer service !!! Thank you...



by:

This product had the parts I needed to fix my broken receiver. A diagram would have been useful to me since I had never worked with this part of my trailer.



by:

We have been looking for replacement parts for our Dico Trailer. You are the only ones who actually said, yes we have the parts you need. We are very happy!



by:

Worked great for my repair even though I did not have a hydraulic coupler



by:

Great kit very easy installation. Trailer is now safe again

  • Latch Repair Kits For Titan Coupler and Actuators
    I contacted Dexter Axle since they acquired Titan and they have not heard of the Titan series 80 actuator or coupler. The Repair Kit for Titan Couplers and Trailer Brake Actuators - 2-5/16" Ball part # T1848700 is the correct latch repair kit for the model 10, 20, some of the 60 series with 2-5/16 ball coupler. The most popular series is the model 60, if you have the multi-fit model 60 the correct repair kit is Latch Repair Kit for Titan Multi-Fit Couplers and Brake Actuators part #...

  • Repair Kit for Titan Zinc-Plated Coupler # T2343400183
    I spoke with my contact at Titan, and he said that your Zinc-Plated Coupler # T2343400183 with the handwheel and the Titan Leverlock Coupler # T4845000 are manufactured differently, so the mechanisms are not interchangeable. You will not be able to use the leverlock mechanism to replace the handwheel assembly on your coupler. We do have the Titan Latch Repair Kit # T4045400 that will allow you to repair the handwheel latching mechanism on your existing unit. The kit includes the lock...

  • Replacement Master Cylinder, Shock and Push Rod Assembly for Dico Model 60 Drum Brake Actuator
    Definitely sorry to hear the actuator you got didn't work out, but at least you are able to get the replacement parts you need (I realize that's little consolation but better than having to chop off a welded actuator). You will need specific replacement parts as opposed to using the parts from the Demco actuator you have as actuators don't have universally fitting parts. You were right on with the part numbers you need for your Dico Model 60 actuator: - Replacement Master Cylinder Assembly...

  • Dico Surge Brake Actuator that Looks like Model 60 Replacement
    The best solution we have is going to be a new surge coupler like the # 099-175-00. Some of the Dico and Titan parts are interchangeable in recent years but since your trailer is almost 30 years old it's tough to say what all would still work. Plus you have to consider it's hard to know what all would need to be replaced so replacing the entire coupler gives you all new parts and frees you from having to worry about the next old part on the coupler that may wear out.

  • Repair Kit and Replacement Coupler for Dico Model 60 Actuator Coupler
    If you want a repair kit to let you rebuild your Dico Model 60 actuator you can use kit # T4045400. For a new coupler you can use the Demco bolt-on hydraulic drum actuator # DM72VR which fits a 2-inch ball. This coupler bolts on to a 3-inch channel tongue.

  • Do All Trailer Coupler Latch Repair Kits Fit All Couplers
    There are quite a few A-frame style couplers out there so without more info I really couldn't confidently say if the repair kit part # T4045400 would work for you or not. If you see Dexter or UFP on the coupler and it's a multi fit style coupler with the knob like what this repair kit has it's probably correct though. The most straightforward solution would be a new coupler like the part # CA-5210-B to replace what you have now though as that would eliminate any guesswork and would give...

    Valley is no longer in business; they closed up about 5 years back. We no longer offer their repair kits but we can help you with a new coupler. For a new straight-tongue coupler you can use the linked page to view all such items we offer, such as the Titan Multi-Fit # T2343400183 which bolts to a 3-inch trailer tongue and which fits 1-7/8-inch, 2-inch and 50-mm hitch balls. This 5K coupler is also zinc-plated for resistance to corrosion. For a painted version use part # T2343400. For...
