The #58 Kadee® Magne-Matic® Coupler features a "Scale" Metal Coupler (a smaller head coupler which is more to scale and is patterned after the type 'E" couplers), insulated #232 Draft Gear Box and Lid with side and center screw holes for mounting. The #58 Coupler may be mounted with the supplied #232 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 and offset as the NO.5®coupler which will allow the modeler to remove the existing NO.5®coupler and replace with the new smaller coupler. The new coupler is made of the same metal construction as the NO.5®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 or use the very strong plastic isolated #28 Coupler which has the same mounting dimensions as the NO.5®Coupler. The #58 package contains two pair of the new coupler, two pair of the NO.5®centering springs, two pair of the NO.5®gearboxes, and instructions. Please note: that the knuckle spring required for this coupler is the new #625, not the #622 which is used on other couplers.

 

Note: The #158 WHISKER® Coupler will work anywhere a #58 Coupler will work. The #158 coupler is the WHISKER® Coupler equivalent to the #58 Coupler.

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.
