Review of the Fulton Channel Tongue Coupler with Hand Wheel Latch Repair Kit


Today, we'll be having a look at the Fulton Repair Kit for Fulton Channel Tongue Couplers with Hand Wheel Latch for 2" to 2-1/8" balls. Part number F520801. Here's what our repair kit comes with. We have our new hand wheel latch, our new roll pin to secure our latch to our threaded rod here. That way you can't take a latch all the way off. Your spring, your ball catch, and then your ratcheting mechanism to make sure that your hand wheel doesn't back off. The reason you want one of these kits is in case your coupler we're to become damaged.

This will save you time and money, so you can just repair the necessary parts. Over time, these threaded prices here can become damaged. Your hand crank could become difficult to move. Most times, those couplers are welded on, so you have to spend more time and effort. If you don't have a welder, it makes it a very difficult repair process.

This repair kit will work with Fulton 308 series Channel Tongue Hand Wheel Couplers with a 2" to 2-1/8" ball. We have a coupler here off of our trailer. We'll show you how to install replacement parts. Normally, we would have to remove our roll pin right here. We've already removed ours. We will skip that, and we'll show you how the rest of it goes.

We'll press up on our ball latch on the bottom, push down on the ratchet mechanism, spin off our hand wheel. We'll drop out everything from the bottom. We'll set that aside. We'll take our new ball latch, drop in our threaded rod, attach our spring. Once we have that set up, I always like to do this part here first.

It makes it easier. Take our ratchet mechanism, drop it on in. You can hold it in place, while we raise up our assembly. Take our hand wheel, thread it on. You can hear our ratchet mechanism work as we turn it. That's what tightens our coupler down onto our trailer ball. Tighten this down all the way, so it easily install a roll pin. You see our roll pin hole sticking out now. Take our pin, get it in position, and we'll tap it in with a hammer. We have it all the way through now. This roll pin, as you see, when you uncouple our trailer from our tow vehicle, that roll pin stops our hand crank, so you can't take it off all the way and lose your pieces. That completes our look at the Fulton Repair Kit for Fulton Channel Tongue Couplers with Hand Wheel Latches for 2" to 2-1/8" balls. Part number F520801. .
