AL-KO Snap couplings are spring-loaded to enable the coupling to snap and lock upon closing the coupling.
2000kg AL-KO snap couplings have a feature where an R Clip can secure the handle and help prevent accidental unlocking.
- Also listed here is an imported four-hole x 2t coupling.
- Use Snap couplings on trailers and marine trailers without brakes.
- Hole Spacings 101.6mm x 13.5mm
We recommend using 1/2″ Grade 8 high tensile bolts to secure the 2000kg AL-KO coupling to the trailer frame.
‘Couplings’ designed for use between tow vehicles and trailers with an ‘ATM’ up to 3.5 tonnes must be ‘Quick Release Couplings’.
- Coupling Head Adjustment Screw and Nut
- Coupling Head Tongue Assembly Alko
- Trigger – Spring – Roll Pin
How do couplings comply with Australian Standards.
2.1. ‘Ball Couplings’ intended for towing trailers up to 3.5 tonnes ‘ATM’ must comply with Australian Standard 4177.2 – 1994 “50 mm Towballs” or as amended from time to time.
COUPLING BODIES FOR BALL COUPLINGS
3.1. The coupling body of a 50 mm ‘Ball Coupling’ intended for trailers up to 3.5 tonnes ‘ATM’ must comply with Australian Standard 4177.3 – 1994 “Coupling Body for Ball Couplings” or as amended from time to time.
The coupling on the right is not a Quick Release as required by the standards and is illegal for use on Australian roads
