Does Pintle Hook Latch Lock into Place When Couple to the Ball on Pintle Hook Combo C48200  


Im trying to find out if you hook up a trailer hitch to the 2-5/16inch Ball on any of the Pintle Hook Combos are they made to latch the top pivot point down on top of the pintle downward to the lock position when attaching the trailer. Or is the lock position on the pintle only used when a trailer has a lunette ring only? Im wondering if this only works with certain Pintle Hook Combos / Dual Purpose Pintle Hitches and or if this varies from one brand to the next? Thank You


Expert Reply:

If using a pintle hook combo such as # C48200 and coupling to the ball then the latch part would not be able to come down far enough to insert the pin to hold it in place which is fine because the coupler locks onto the ball. Looking through the other pintle/ball combos, see link, they all work in this same or a similar manner. The pin does hold that latch up when not in use.
