When you order any new trailer – specify an EasyCheck Upper Coupler.
Upper Coupler Types
Upper Couplers (sometimes called the king pin plate, pickup plate, skid plate, upper fifth wheel, or fifth wheel plate) are unique to each type or style of trailer. As a result, there are seemingly an infinite number of upper coupler sizes and designs.
Box Trailers, Flatbed, Specialty and other Non-Tank Trailers
Box or Dry Freight Trailers, Flatbed Trailers and many types of Specialty Trailers typically have the upper coupler designed into the actual structure of the trailer. Therefore, it may only be practical to change out the upper coupler with a significant trailer refurbishment.
The patent protected EasyCheck Upper Coupler Technology provides the sames benefits to all types of Box Trailers and Flatbed trailers as well as many Specialty Trailers. This includes “Pup” trailers which are especially prone to hard wear and corrosion. LGM will work with your engineering team to design our technology into your trailer design for your new or refurbished trailers and license it for your use.
Whether you are a trailer manufacturer or own one or a fleet of trailers, contact LGM to learn how our EasyCheck Upper Coupler systems can be installed in your trailers!
