What do you need to consider when buying an Alko braked coupling?
You can't just buy any old Alko coupling for your Trailer. For example, you cannot fit a braked Alko coupling to an unbraked trailer. So it is important to check whether you own a braked or unbraked Trailer. After that, it is important to look at the towing capacity. When looking for a replacement Alko coupling, it is important to find out the minimum towing capacity of the previous coupling. In addition, it is good to check the mounting shape. The mounting shape is the shape on which the coupling should be mounted; it can be rectangular or round and is available in different diameters.
Tip: To reduce the risk of theft, we recommend fitting your Alko coupling with a Hitchlock.
When do you use a braked Alko coupling stabiliser?
If you want to hit the road comfortably with your trailer or caravan, it is useful to use braked Al-ko hitch stabiliser. You will have much less trouble with overtaking trucks and vans, uneven road surfaces or wind gusts. Do not use a stabiliser coupling if you want to make up for poor handling of a combination, for example if the towing vehicle is too light for the caravan or Trailer. Should the caravan then start swinging anyway, this can no longer be compensated.
Maintaining braked Alko coupling parts
To ensure that your Alko couplings continue to work properly, it is important to maintain them properly on a regular basis. You can do this, for example, by making sure your towbar/ball is clean, rust- and grease-free. Do you own a new towbar? Then it is a good idea to sand it down first. If you don't do this, it will contaminate the Friction pads and it will work less effectively. You can clean dirty Friction pads with a light sandpaper. As you could already read, Friction pads have to endure a lot and can start to wear out over time. You have also come to the right place for Alko friction pads. An Alko braked coupling is often equipped with a wear indicator so you can replace the friction pads in time.
