Help finding a coupling replacement? Instep Pathfinder
I just purchased an Instep Pathfinder pedal trailer from a thrift shop but it is missing the coupling that goes to the pulling seat. I thought I could purchase it from Instep directly but while the description link is there, there is actually no way to purchase it: https://www.instep.net/Product/Acces..._Kit_25-PF001/
I found a couple of other couplers that might do the trick on Amazon, but I don't know if they are the right size (not to mention the Shadow Trailer coupler is actually more than I paid for the bike trailer):
Anyone have experience with this? Alternatively anyone have a coupler they would be willing to sell?
Have you tried using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page? That's the best way to find out if you can purchase it from directly or if they can direct you to a dealer who can supply the part.
While it would be nice to be able to order it online, their web-site is fairly clear that you need to call to obtain replacement parts (https://www.instep.net/askinstep.html):
"We are sorry, but we do not have replacement or non-warranty parts available for sale online. Please call our customer service department at 1-800-242-6110 to purchase a replacement part. You will need the model number and date code to order replacement parts for your unit. This information can be found on the stroller, jogger or trailer itself.
Hey, I got my Instep Pathfinder Pedal Trailer bike off Craigslist, mine was missing the same part. I got a new coupling thru WeeRide.com, it's NOT the same bike ( their's is the Wee ride Co-pilot or Pro-Pilot) but if all you need is the part that attaches to the seat post of the adult bike, I got mine today it fits and WORKS GREAT. There number is 1.800.245.3125, tell them you need an extra hitch for the WeeRide Co-Pilot model #56455 . It cost me $10 plus S&H Good luck!

I had trouble finding one for our Instep too. I finally checked at the LBS and found one that they took off a used bike. Good luck.
