Couple-Mate Trailer Hitch Guide
More Trouble Then It Is Worth
Base unit slides in the hitch and gets out of alignment when the trailer makes turns which makes it difficult to insert the guide plate. It does protect the vehicle from damage when backing up to align the trailer and hitch, but it is not as simple as it looks.

It will not work with square coupler used on EZ Loader custom trailers. The coupler will not go back far enough to enable it to drop onto the ball without removing the back plate.
You can't remove the back plate because it gets jammed back by the coupler.
The mount for it keeps getting twisted every time you make a turn.

I have used this product for 2 years. Sold my boat and bought another boat, so I am ordering another one. This product is as good as a pocket on a shirt. My brother wants one and a couple of my fishing buddies say they are going to to buy them also. A great product that works very well when you are trying to back your truck up to the trailer by yourself. I highly recomend this to anyone. Well worth the money over the headache of not having one.

Makes one person hookup a breeze. No need to beat up your bumper anymore. Does not work with my trailer with a bulldog hitch. That trailer is light enough that you only need to get close.
