Description

AL-KO ball couplings with the advantage of safety

The coupling creates the connection between towing vehicle and trailer, so a safe and secure connection is of paramount importance. Rely on the AL-KO quality and safety standards. Our AKS™ 1300, 3004 and 3504 stabiliser coupling systems offer even more stability.

 

AK 7 PLUS and AK 7 V PLUS ball couplings

  • Comply with all quality requirements for unbraked trailers up to 750 kg
  • With round or square drawbar

 

Plus ball coupling AK 161 and AK 270

  • For braked trailers up to 2700 kg
  • With 3-fold safety for flawless hitching

 

Basic steel ball couplings for braked trailers AK 160 and AK 300

  • The safety bonus with our ball couplings.
  • Handle complies with the latest regulations and is very flat, the boot can still be opened even with low loading edge.

 

Profi cast ball couplings for braked trailers AK 301 and AK 351

  • Wear indicator
    Provides information about the status of your trailer's and car`s coupling.
  • Safety indicator
    If the green cylinder is visible in hitched-up status, you can be sure that the coupling has been placed on your towing vehicle's towball correctly.

 

Cast ball coupling for braked trailer with AKS™ 1300 additional function

  • Movements
    Swaying and pitching movements of the trailer are effectively suppressed.
  • Smooth running
    Relaxed and calm driving with the vehicle combination increases safety.
  • Speed
    The AKS™ permits a higher theoretical maximum speed (pay attention to permitted maximum speed). 
    In addition, the vehicle combination can be restored to stability faster in an emergency situation. The AKS™ 1300 complies with ISO 11555-1 (100 km/h registration possible).
  • How it works
    Operating the stabilisation handle presses two special friction linings against the car's towball from the left and right. The maximum braking torque of the linings can be 320 Nm. Swaying or pitching movements are thus effectively suppressed before they become serious.
  • Operation
    The coupling and stabilisation handles are separate from one another, and each can be operated with one hand. No complicated additional securing devices. The stabilisation handle is simply opened for easier manoeuvring of the trailer.

 

Cast ball couplings for braked trailer with AKS™ 3504 and AKS™ 3504 additional function

  • Safe and relaxed driving with the AKS™ 3004 and 3504
    Snaking and pitching movements are effectively suppressed with the safety coupling.
  • How it works
    Operating the stabilisation handle presses four special friction linings against the car's towball from the left and right as well as the front and rear. The maximum braking torque of the linings can be 320 Nm. Swaying or pitching movements are thus effectively suppressed before they become serious.
  • Operation
    The coupling and stabilisation handles are separate from one another, and each can be operated with one hand. No complicated additional securing devices. The stabilisation handle is simply opened for easier manoeuvring of the trailer.
