2t Alko trailer two-hole zinc Snap or more precisely the Spring Release Coupling is AL-KO latest release coupling.
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
- Weld-on 2t Trailer Coupling Trigg
We recommend using 1/2″ Grade 8 high tensile bolts to secure the 2000kg AL-KO coupling to the trailer frame.
