Demco Flat Mount Trailer Coupler - Fixed Coupler - DM69FR Review


Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com.Today, we're going to take a look at this Demco, Easy Latch, Flat Plate Mount Trailer Coupler for a 2-5/16 diameter ball. Has a 21,000 pound weight capacity. Now this is a heavy duty ball coupler that will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. Provides the connection point for the hitch ball. And this is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo and construction trailers.

You can see it has a flat mounting plate that'll bolt directly to the trailer.Now the hardware to install, this is not included. The mounting bolt pattern, which you can see the four mounting holes here, the measurement on those center to center between the holes is four and a half inches horizontally, and four and a half inches vertically. Bolt hole diameter is five eighths of an inch.Now the other nice feature on this coupler, it does use the easy latch mechanism right here, which ensures a simple, secure hookup and disconnect. Basically it'll let you hook up when the latch is in the closed position like it is now, you'll just drop this coupler over your hitch ball, and the latch will snap into place. Just wanted to show that to you.I happened to pull, here's a 2-5/16 diameter ball that is designed to fit on.

So you can see as you go over the ball and then the weights put on, it as it goes down, if you notice it latches and you're all ready to go, you don't even have to mess with opening it up for that. Now, when you go to disconnect, all you have to do is open it all the way and it'll allow you to unhook from the ball. So again, just to show you, it's very nice, drops right into place, and you're all ready to go.Now this does also offer, if you notice on the side here, this hole, it's a 5/16 diameter hole that goes all the way through here. That's for a coupler lock. In other words, if you want to put a lock, coupler lock through there, that'll lock it into place so nobody can remove it from the hitch ball.

Now, if you do use a coupler lock, we mentioned the hole is 5/16 diameter, you do need to have a lock that has a usable length of at least over three inches, so it'll fit in here and lock into place.Now, this is a sturdy steel construction, has a nice black powder coat finish on it, to give excellent corrosion resistance. It does meet a 500 hour salt spray rating. Part is made in the USA. And again, we've mentioned it fits the 2-5/16 diameter ball size and the weight capacity on this is 21,000 pounds.But that should do it for the review on this Demco, Easy Latch, Flat Plate Mount Trailer Coupler for a 2-5/16 diameter ball with a 21,000 pound weight capacity.
