Review of Buyers Products Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler 3370091562


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Bayers Products 2-5/16" heavy duty channel tongue coupler. This is a max gross trailer weight rating of 15,000 pounds. This is going to serve as the connection point between your trailer and your ball mount. The coupler is going to attach to that ball up here with the latch mechanism. This works with a 2-5/16" ball, and a 3" straight tongue trailer. The channel is going to be welded on, and the whole unit is made of a tough cast steel and is zinc plated for corrosion resistance.

The unique thing to this coupler is the auto-engage latch feature. This comes with the pin and clip already attached to our coupler. The handle is going to just have a spring that's going to auto engage. So we can use this with one hand just to pull that back and then it's going to spring closed.Take a look underneath and you'll see that spring in place right there in that channel, so that's what's going to be the auto latch mechanism. We bring a ball in.

You'll see how that works. So I'll just pull that handle back, the ball will go in place and then that latch is going to spring closed, holding that ball secure. You can see that fits really nicely around the ball to keep it in place. Whenever you're ready to uncouple, pull the latch back, and then remove the ball. This is going to be a bolt-on design, so we'll have several different mounting holes to get this attached.

Again, it does work with that 3" straight tongue coupler, or straight tongue trailer.From the inside edge to inside edge of that channel, it's going to be about 3-1/4". The mounting holes, we're going to have three on either side. The rearmost holes are going to be 2" apart, center on center. Those two there. The front two holes will be 3" apart from center on center.

Using the front to rear, those will be 5" apart, center on center. That's going to be the same as the two holes up top. They will also be 5" apart from center to center.The whole unit is going to measure 17-1/4" from the front of the coupler to the back of the channel. While this does come with the pin and clip to secure that latch, you can replace this with a lock if you choose. You'll just need to have at least 1-1/4" between either side to get that in place. And it will have to have a diameter of 5/16". Again, this is rated for class four, and it has that max gross trailer weight rating of 15,000 pounds. That's going to do it for a look at the Bayers Products 2-5/16" heavy duty channel tongue coupler.
