Coupling your trailer – especially getting that latch to close – is always a hassle. That's why the QuickPin™ trailer coupler doesn't use a latch. In fact, QuickPin™ is engineered with a revolutionary design to make trailer hookup as simple as possible.
To couple your trailer with QuickPin™, just drop the trailer tongue onto the ball, slide in the pin, and that's it! No more wrestling with the latch, trying to get it to snap down onto the ball. Traditional latches can wear out and become corroded, leading to jams, broken parts and frustration. QuickPin™ is simple, innovative and requires no adjusting or tightening.
The QuickPin™ trailer hitch coupler is fully tested according to SAE J684 specifications, ensuring that the coupler is safe and reliable to tow your trailer. This model is rated for 3,500 lbs. gross trailer weight. It accepts a standard 2" diameter trailer ball and can be mounted onto a 3" wide trailer tongue beam. It is compatible with most existing coupler mounting hole configurations.
The QuickPin™ trailer tongue coupler comes with a 1/2" pin for securing the ball mount connection. This pin must be used for hookup and cannot be replaced with a different hitch pin. Mounting hardware for attaching the coupler to the trailer frame must be purchased separately.
Over the winter I received the Curt Quickpin coupler free for review. After the snow finally disappeared and it warmed up just a bit it was time to try it out finally!
Opening the box it was packaged really well and didn’t slide around in the box, you were also able to tell exactly what was there and nothing was loose in the box to possibly look past or lose.
This is where things got interesting so stick with me on this journey!
After trying it on 2 different trailers and it not fitting either trailer with a quarter inch needed for each side it finally clicked in my head to look at the size and realized the wrong size was sent. No worries, I had another in my hands thanks to Shannon Pozek helping me out within a few days. Perfect! It slid onto the the trailer perfectly and I was relieved. But then I went to place the bolts back in and realized that the holes on the coupler didn’t match up with the holes on the trailer. I tried to put a chain though for the time being to at least be able to test things out. The chain that would go through the holes in the coupler wouldn’t fit though the holes in the trailer. So even had they matched up the bolts that I had taken off the trailer would not have been a snug fit for the coupler. At this point I decided to make my own “trailer” by cutting a piece of wood to fit in where I could drill my own holes and they would match up. After doing this I realized I didn’t have bolts that would actually go completely through because there was bolts for each side that I had taken off before from the old coupler. I looked around and the u-bolt happened to be the exact size to fit in the holes so I hammered it in and BOOM I had my own makeshift set up to be able to test!
Playing around with it a little the positives I found:
•It had a great range of motion. It fluidly moved from side to side with ease and even when I let go held on tight as it went at an angle.
•As it’s name states it was quick to put on and take back off which was incredibly nice.
•The R-Clip was attached to the wire which I really liked. No worries that it will be sat down somewhere and lost.
Some things that I came across personally that could be problematic or that I think could be improved are:
•The possibility of holes not lining up with the trailer. Possibly adding that dimension of its location from the top as well as the size of the hole so people could compare it to what they already have.
•Where the wire running through the pin is crimped, if the wire could be pulled out a bit more so the crimp had a better hold on the wire and less chance of that pulling out.
Overall I am very impressed with the coupler and really think it’s a good product.
