Truck Pintle Hooks | 36.8kN to 84kN

Couplemate truck pintles are rated from 5 tonnes to 16.5 tonnes with safety catch included.

All Couplemate Pintles are black powder coated and suit standard mounts (85mm x 45mm). Pintle hitches are made from resistant alloy steel. This type of steel has been selected for its durability and corrosive resistance.

Combination Pintle hooks are available with two variations. Standards Pintle Hook and the Low wear 6t Pintle Combination Hook. Also available is the high tensile, low rattle hitch pin rated to 6t.

Purchase heavy duty, replacement high tensile pintle hitch bolts here.

Pintle Hitch is individually boxed and available in 4 different ratings:

Important: Select the correct pintle hitch from our D-Value calculator below. Example, kN of Pintle Hook and other towing equipment correctly matches your vehicle and trailer.

D -Value for Pintle Hooks

D -Value for pintle hitches has long been a mystery for many when selecting the right size pintle hook. D-Value is maximum horizontal load in kN given to a pintle hook.

D -Value for Pintle Hooks is critical when selecting the correct pintle hook because depending on your truck and trailer weight, the D-Value is changing.

“So I think I need a 10t pintle hook because I am towing an 8t trailer with a 20t truck.” The manufacturer states he does not have a D-Value. (in this case, you cannot use this pintle hook with no D-Value)

D-Value is the result of dynamic testing where a maximum value applied to the pintle hook. In case of a Couplemate 10t pintle hook, the D-Value is 49kN

Now review our Min requirements for D-Value and select your truck GVM and Trailer ATM.

For an 8t trailer, the max truck GVM is 20t a pintle hook of a Min 56kN is are required.

Our 14.5t Pintle Hook has a D-Value of 73kN and can easily be used to tow an 8t trailer.

You also may wish to choose a ring coupling to install on your trailer. Ring couplings fall into the same equation. If it does not have a maximum D-Value, then you cannot calculate the correct towing combination.

Couplemate has tested it 3″ ring coupling to 49kN. From the table above, it is easy to calculate the correct towing configuration.
