Fixed Coupler Options To Replace UFP A-60 Surge Couper For Boat Trailer


I have a dri dock boat trailer that has a UFP surge actuator, P/N 34043. I would like to use the trailer without the surge brakes. Do you offer any type of fixed latch that does not slide? My tube channel is 3 wide?

Your UFP surge actuator 34043 is a model A-60 actuator. This is designed for a 2" hitch ball and trailer weighing up to 7,500lbs. I have made a list of different bolt on couplers we carry below you can choose from to bolt in place of the actuator if you choose to remove it completely.

Buyers Products Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler # 3370091560
Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM12925
Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-95
Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # 12564
Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-52

If you prefer to not completely remove the surge coupler and would rather lock it out so the brakes will not activate you can use the Lockout Key # DX94FR. This will sit inside the opening on the outer case and prevent the inner member from sliding back and actuating the brakes.
