Recreational & Family - Instep Trailer Coupler question
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Does anyone know what the difference is between two different couplers I have found for Instep trailers? They are both listed as #SA074, but one is steel and the other appears to be black plastic. The steel one is shown on the Instep site, instep.net, and other sites. The black is also shown on several sites, Ebay included. It is also somewhat cheaper.
If anyone has any experience with the black one, is it strong enough to do the job? Any help appreciated.

I have the black one, it is simply painted metal, perhaps to slow rusting.
I have had no trouble with the coupler, and have used the trailer for 3 years now.

Yeppers. The black one came with my instep and no problems whatsoever.
Thanks for your help. I ordered the black one.
