Best Trailer Coupler Parts in 2020



CURT 25153 Straight-Tongue Trailer Coupler for 2-Inch Channel, Hitch Ball, 3,500 lbs. Review:


I bought this to replace the original coupler on my ATV/ Snow Mobile trailer. The original was operational but very hard to couple and then remove from ball. The Curt MFG coupled up very easy and locked in place without any excess play. It released with a easy lift of the locking lever and pulled of free. My trailer does not have a tongue jack so the ease of coupling and removing is very important, and the piece of mind in knowing its firmly attached makes this everything I wanted. Matches up the same as the original, both the bolt pattern and width were good. Another review mentioned the label sticking, I removed mine slow and easy without soaking in water, then used Goo-Gone to remove the glue residue, no problem!
This was the best price I found on an name I knew and trusted. The description said an extra 1-2 days to process, but with Amazon Prime it was here in 3 days.
Bottom line: I'm extremely satisfied with this coupler, it was a great buy!



CURT 45408 Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter Reducer Sleeve Set 3-Inch to 2-1/2 or 2-Inch Review:


I first bought the 3" to 2" reducer, which fit but it extends past the receiver several inches so there's more distance for your chains and wire harness to get to the receiver. I didn't like it. This CURT 45408, when installed is flush. Also an advantage to this is the 2.5" and 2" are basically interchangeable on the fly. It's a clean look and solid. Ford should have equipped their trucks with these.



CURT 25194 Posi-Lock Coupler Replacement Latch for 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Ball Review:


Just received 2nd replacement coupler. So easy to install and hopefully the lock but will stay in place this time! Anyway towed the tractor and all good again! This is a good replacement part and the loosening nut may have been an anomaly but all
In all excellent price and well made!
WARNING UPDATE: The locking nut does comes loose after a while so be aware and buy a 1/2inch locking nut.
Arrived as usual on time and within 5 minutes the old one off and the new Kurt Coupler was on. Excellent replacement easy to fit absolutely no problems!



MaxxHaul 70069 Hitch Extender With Step, 4000-lb Max Towing Weight, 400-lb Tongue Weight. Review:


I buy a lot of things on Amazon, but I hate having to buy this sort of thing without being able to see it first. There's just too much of an opportunity for someone to sell something that looks good in a photo, but turns out to be flimsy and cheaply-made.

Not this extender! It's built solid and out of thick, strong, materials. I suspect that the load rating given for it is VERY conservative. I won't exceed that load rating, but I'm not going to be at all concerned about it doing the job, either.

I also bought a MaxxHaul 50023 Tightener Anti Rattle Stabilizer to go with it, and would go so far as to say that it's a must-have part to accompany the extender. It wasn't but a few bucks more, and well worth the price. I'll be specifically looking for the MaxxHaul brand for any future purchases.



CURT 60692 OEM Puck System Gooseneck Hitch Kit for Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Nissan Trucks, 30,000 lbs. GTW, 2-5/16-Inch Ball, OEM Puck System Required Review:


We were very skeptical about these hitches, I mean, how can this actually work? At one point my husband didn't unhook the trailer to see if the hitch would come out when he went to jack it up. Nope, started to lift the bed up like it would normally. The trailer (3 horse slant with LQ) pulled great just like it always did. It worked fantastic and is the same brand hitch that the dealers sell at the price of $450 at less than half. We love it!



CURT 25217 Black A-Frame Trailer Coupler Accepts 2-Inch Hitch Ball, 7,000 lbs Review:


Did allot of searching, this is about the lowest price for this style and with adding a few bucks to get quality and not something flimsy. Finger safe!!! Also has safety pin attached that prevents it falling off ball. Took trailer off road and does very good. I just attached safety chains to the stand hole because I'm putting a frame Jack on. . if you are making a pick up bed trailer , picture a triangle , coupler 50 degrees , your other angles will be 65 degrees . you can put the width of your frame in the triangle calculator and two of the degrees and it will calculate where you need to notch your frame out.



Tow Ready (63228) 'Gorilla Guard' Coupler Lock for 2" Couplers Review:


This device is great. It fits very well over my 2" coupler. and once locked has very little play. It is heavy which lead me to believe that it is well constructed of dense metal. As most people have stated, if someone really wants your stuff, they can get it with sheer determination. I figure the right kind of lock is a deterrent to 95% of the yahoos who would take a quick swing at getting my utility trailer. I had another one that had a shaped bar that straddled the top of the coupler. It was eventually lost, but I never did like the amount of play it had even when fitted as tight as I could get it. Also I always imagined that one or two good blows with a sledge hammer would have snapped it off. Because this one utilizes the common flange around the coupler, it would appear to draw on its strength to resist being pounded off. I think even if a grinder were applied to it, it would take a long time to effectively cut through enough of it to remove it.

I also double up by using a special high-quality stainless bolt lock designed for the lever that locks the coupler to the hitch. So the SOB that tries to get my trailer is going to need all the determination and time he can muster.

Yeah the lock is awkwardly keyed on the bottom, but it's a small price to pay for confident security, Buy it.



CURT 25330 Channel-Mount Adjustable Trailer Coupler Accepts 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball, 14,000 lbs Review:


Seems to be very heavy built and will perform the job well. It does fit loosely inside the channel. I don't think the tolerances are this loose on these two parts and it could be made tighter than this without worry. It is sent with the hardware. The nuts appear to be mechanical lock nuts. The bolts appear to be about an inch longer than they need to be. I will probably source shorter bolts so that I do not need to wrench the nut off and on an extra inch if I want to adjust height.



Reese Towpower 7042100 Adjustable Coupler Latch Lock Review:


This thing is not going to stop some one from stealing your trailer if they really want to! It is a deterrent. I put it on to make it a hassle for some one to steal my trailer at the boat ramp. I have been using one on my new boat trailer for a couple of years now. I bent it almost immediately by not latching the ball lock all the way. It still worked fine. It is a large tandem axle trailer and there is no shearing going on! As long as you latch the ball lock all the way you are good to go. I had to replace it because I left it on the bumper and drove off. I have a policy of not putting anything on the bumper now .
