This industry leading coupler features an all metal coupler head, shank, and Whisker® centering spring and comes complete with insulated draft gearbox and lid. The #149 Magne-Matic® Whisker® Metal Coupler may be mounted with the included #242 Snap-Together Gearbox or with other manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets.
