Trailer Coupler makes towing safer and easier.

Trailer Coupler makes towing safer and easier.

QuickBite Couplers use automatic dual-jaw locking system to couple trailer to vehicle. When vehicle ball enters trailer coupler, set of inner jaws automatically close around it. Jaws are captured by torsion spring-loaded locking outer-jaw, making it impossible for ball to escape. System eliminates need to raise trailer above ball and stops coupler-to-ball hang-ups. Use of horizontal and vertical...
