Hitch coupler top and side mounts

how to install a hitch coupler onto a lawn trailer

In addition to the two holes on top of the hitch coupler you can also use two on each side.

I'm thinking the top two will be enough, mainly because I couldn't quite figure out the best way to line up where to drill the hole on the tongue.

One thought I had was to use a nail on the coupler side and hit it with a hammer to make an indent where the hole needs to be drilled, but it's a difficult space to get a hammer in and I was ready for it to be done.

Put the coupling in the U-beam and mark the end with a pen.

Then put the U-beam on a flat surface and lay the coupler along side it, lining the end up with the marker. Now you can mark the holes in one side. Repeat for the other side.
