Where Unsurpassed Quality & Detail Come Together!
DO IT ONCE. DO IT RIGHT. MAKE IT LAST.
You will not find a stronger, more reliable make of couplers on the market!
Kadee® couplers are precision engineered, along with all of our products, to meet our extremely tight tolerances and standards to ensure that every Kadee® product functions properly for peak performance.

DO IT ONCE. DO IT RIGHT. MAKE IT LAST the phrase that comes to mind. By using Kadee® couplers and installing them correctly, you don't sacrifice dependable performance, quality, strength, or function so don’t settle for less.

Our reputation of having the absolute best & most reliable couplers on the market is not something we take lightly. The positive feedback of hundreds of thousands of modelers, magazine reviews, and our own research & testing shows that Kadee® Couplers are the most functional & reliable knuckle couplers on the market. Why do you think so many others tried copying our design? Our Couplers out perform, out pull, out last, & are the best overall value of any knuckle coupler on the market. The model railroad community has made Kadee® couplers the industry standard that all others are measured against.
With over 60 years of making couplers we challenge you to compare and experience the Kadee® difference.

There is Only One Real Choice When Purchasing Couplers. Kadee® couplers are guaranteed*, built strong with quality materials engineered & designed to Last & last with years of trouble free operation & the only couplers with Delayed Magnetic Uncoupling®, Instructions, Coupler Conversions, Coupler Support & are manufactured in the U.S.A.
- NOT -
"Knockoff" knuckle couplers from "China" that are now more expensive than ever (many are more costly than Kadee® metal couplers). "Knockoffs" "imitate" in appearance at first glance, but none "fully function" in one way or another like Kadee® couplers. "Knockoff" couplers break, bend, droop, fatigue, relax, take set, slip, stretch or flat don't work. Causing endless failures, trouble & frustration. This is their "overseas quality & performance guarantee".

HO-Scale Coupler Conversion Info

You must first identify the locomotive or rolling stocks manufacturer and type before looking the product up on the HO-Scale Coupler Conversions. Use the HO-Scale Coupler Conversions to lookup our suggested starting coupler* for the particular model. (Our conversions typically requiring the least modification to a model utilizing our newest couplers even though other couplers also work for the model).

 

Once you have lookup our suggested starting coupler you can use our HO-Scale Coupler Conversions (How -To instructions and diagrams) to help you with the couplers installation process. Always check the coupler heights with either our #205 or newer #206 Coupler Height Gauge.

 

Note: If the model came with Factory Knuckle Couplers it will not be listed on the HO-Scale Coupler Conversions under manufacturer there is a generic conversion for Factory Knuckle Couplers on the top of the HO-Scale Coupler Conversions.

*Our conversion’s based on only one model from a production run, there may be inconsistencies in a model’s production run that require a different coupler or model modifications to achieve the proper coupler height for coupler function.
