Kadee HO Scale #153 "Scale" All Metal Self-Centering "WHISKER"® Coupler
The #153 Coupler may be mounted with the supplied #242 draft gear box or with the manufactures cast-on coupler pockets. The coupler will couple and uncouple with other Kadee® HO and HOn3 couplers. The coupler has the same shank length as the #23 or 43 coupler which will allow the modeler to remove the existing #23 or 43 coupler and replace with the new smaller coupler. The #153 coupler is made of the same metal as the #43 for strength and rigidity.
It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gear box to avoid the possible electrical crossover or shorting that may cause damage. Use the provided insulated draft gear box.
