Rated 4.67 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings

Coupler Protect Package Includes:

  • Base Plate (1″ or 1.25″ dia)
  • Guard with Pins

*If you have a 2-5/16″ ball or you know that you have a 1.25″ tow ball shank, you need to order the model with the 1.25″ base plate opening. 



The Coupler Protect contains a base plate and a separate hold down device (guard) that prevents the coupler from accidentally popping off the tow ball during travel. This product is very easy to use. Simply insert the protective hold down accessory to help prevent the coupler from accidentally popping off the tow ball during travel. An added benefit is that the plate can also be used to secure the trailer to the tow vehicle when a padlock is used.

    When I received this, I was VERY happy to find it was a beefy, well thought-out piece of equipment. I have attached it to my hitch system, but haven’t actually used it just yet…but there is no doubt it will give me that peace of mind I am looking for, as it will definitely not allow the towed item to jump off the ball.
    I look forward to using it. Also like that I can lock it as a means of theft protection too. Definitely worth the money.

    Works great. This is my second one (I gave the first to a friend)

    The value and the response to the order was great. The product is attractive and appears to be constructed well and with one reservation is strong. From a mechanical engineering perspective, however, the product does rely on only the shear strength of the relatively small diameter pin if a sudden severe load is placed on it. The welds, while very strong, would not hold the unit together if the pin failed. If the pin is actually made of a very strong, hardened steel that can survive a high stress in shear, this should be mentioned in the description to show that this detail was considered in the design of the product. For my small and light trailer it is likely not an issue.
