Kadee's #153 "Scale" All Metal Self-Centering "WHISKER" Coupler features a "Scale" Metal Coupler (a smaller head coupler which is more to scale and is patterned after the type 'E" couplers) and Metal "WHISKER" Self-centering Spring, insulated Draft Gear Box and Lid. 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, #33 or #43 coupler which will allow the modeler to remove the existing #23, #33 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. The #153 package contains two pairs of the new coupler, two pairs of the #242 gearboxes, and instructions.
