Demco Straight Tongue Trailer Coupler - Standard Coupler - DM16080-95 Review


Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler. This is going to mount onto your trailer and it's going to provide that connection point for your hitch ball, which will allow you to hook your trailer up to your tow vehicle. One of the nice things about this coupler, what's going to set it apart from some of the others out there, is the easy latch mechanism. It's going to make it very easy to get hooked up to your ball.

We've got a ball here to demonstrate.So unlike other couplers, where you have to pull back on a pin or something to get it to mount in place, this you just simply line it up, and when you put the pressure down on it, it's going to lock in there. And then to release it, simply pull up on that and lift it off. It's going to be very easy to use as you're not going to have to worry about trying to look up there to see if it's open or unlatched. It's going to be very easy to get hooked up.This is very heavy duty steel, and it's got a zinc plating on it that's going to help resist corrosion. It's tested for 200 hours of salt spray, so it's going to hold up very well for you.

It's going to do a good job. It is a bolt-on applications, so you're not going to have to weld anything, however that hardware is not included, so you will need to get some of those bolts to get this hooked onto your trailer.It's going to fit ball size 2 and 5/16 of an inch. It's got a total weight capacity of 21,000 pounds. As far as our mounting side here, this is going to be a three inch wide opening for your three inch wide channel tongue. This is made here in the USA, and it does come with a one year warranty from Demco, so you can trust they're standing behind their product.

It's going to do a good job, allow you to get hooked up to your tow vehicle so you can pull that trailer. That's going to complete our look at the Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler.
